A Message from our CEO, Mike Shannon

March 17, 2020

The ongoing coronavirus situation has impacted all facets of life and we want you to know that the health and safety of our customers and employees are of utmost importance to Holiday Automotive.

We take great pride in our facilities and ensure they are always clean and presentable. At this time, cleanliness is not just a source of pride, but a matter of safety. With an abundance of caution, we have implemented enhanced infection control measures in an attempt to slow the spread of germs. Here are a few examples:

  • Increased infection control measures in all Holiday facilities by partnering with ServiceMaster for nightly deep-cleaning and disinfecting with all-day attention to high-traffic areas and touchpoints
  • Implemented infection control process for key touchpoints in courtesy vehicles, test-drive vehicles, and customer vehicles that are in for service, bodywork or trade valuation
  • Eliminated close contacts between team members and with customers (no handshakes, fist-bumps, etc.)
  • Suspended all large meetings of team members
  • Minimized travel between buildings in an attempt to isolate each team to their respective facility

With these enhanced measures in place, we are here to serve your automotive purchase, service and collision repair needs. We realize that some in the community will prefer not to come into our stores; and that’s okay. Please reach out to us for special accommodation. We will listen with empathy and assist with the kindness you’ve come to expect at Holiday. Here are a few examples of additional services we can offer:

  • An individual will pick up and deliver your vehicle for service at no additional charge (FdL addresses)
  • A product expert will create a YouTube video of your vehicle of interest and privately send you the link to your very own virtual test-drive
  • An individual will drop off a vehicle of interest for you to test-drive for final consideration
  • Our experts will provide a trade value for your car remotely
  • We will offer personal buy-from-home options and a secure online credit application
  • A team member will provide home delivery of your new or used vehicle

The team at Holiday truly cares about you, your well-being and your vehicle. We’re here to get you back on the road, perform scheduled maintenance, congratulate you on the purchase of a new vehicle, talk cars or just be a bit of an escape from the news cycle. The landscape is ever-changing, so please visit our Facebook page and website for updates as we rally together to move forward as the resilient community we are known to be. As the world works through these moments, please know that Holiday Automotive is here for you, just as we have been for the ups and downs of the last 60-years.
