KIA DEALERS READY TO TAKE REMOTE ORDERS AND REOPEN WORKSHOPS

Wednesday, 6 May 2020

  • Kia dealers given green light to take remote orders
  • Various workshops to carry out servicing, repairs and MOT’s
  • All services handled responsibly in line with social distancing guidance
  • Dealership showrooms remain closed until further notice

Following the latest government announcement, Kia Motors (UK) Limited is pleased to announce that individual Kia dealers are ready to start taking remote orders during lockdown, according to dealership discretion. Although dealership showrooms will remain closed until further notice from the government, customers can get in contact with their local dealer to place an order.

An official statement from a representative for the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said: “Dealerships are all able to continue to sell cars remotely and deliver cars, as long as they follow our clear guidance from Public Health England to protect both employees who cannot work from home and their customers.”

Other dealerships will be reopening workshops to carry out servicing, repairs and MOT’s, to help keep customer vehicles in top condition. All work will be carried out with the highest standard of hygiene to ensure the surfaces of all vehicles are clean before its return.

To support customers during COVID-19, Kia UK will honour valid warranty claims for repairs that could not take place before the expiry of the vehicle’s warranty due to government lockdown rules. For customers who have a Kia Care service plan, this will remain valid regardless of when the services are undertaken.
