covid 19 coronavirus we are making changes safety



Following the Government’s announcement and in line with the new regional tiers, our Sales Showrooms will be fully re-opened from Wednesday December 2nd and you can again arrange face to face appointments with our sales teams. 

Rest assured however, we will still be operating our ‘Click & Drive’ policy for customers wanting to carry out services remotely.

We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you for your continued support to Winchester Motor Group and we very much look forward to seeing you again (in person) very soon.

Kind regards

Mark Mills-Goodlet

On your arrival, you will see we are doing things slightly differently to help protect you and our colleagues. You will be given a warm welcome, as always, but this will now be in the form of a friendly, touch-free greeting, rather than a handshake.

To ensure everyone stays as safe as possible and to help protect against the spread of COVID-19, we've made some changes to our usual processes.

What we’re doing to keep everyone safe

Prior to opening on the 1st June 2020 the management team undertook a thorough risk assessment of our business in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and I am pleased to share the actions we have taken to ensure that we operate a safe working environment for both staff and our valued customers.

Mark Mills-Goodlet - Managing Director

We are making changes

To ensure everyone stays as safe as possible and to help protect against the spread of COVID-19, we've made some changes to our usual processes.

NHS Test & Trace

From 24th Sept, in line with new Government Legislation you will find NHS Test & Trace QR Codes located at our dealership entrances.

As a responsible business we have a duty of care to protect our valued customers and would request that you scan this code when visiting our sites.

We do completely understand that this is a voluntary action. If you opt not to scan the QR code, we will request that your details are taken in a manual format in order to make sure we are all doing our part & keeping everyone safe, this information will ONLY be used in the event it is requested by the NHS.

We’ve adapted the layout of our showrooms and vehicle displays

Parking areas have been marked asking you to park in every other bay

Social Distancing

We all understand how important social distancing is for our protection, and so you can be reassured that this will continue in our showroom and servicing facilities. The same rules apply: to keep a minimum of 2 metres apart. To achieve this you will notice we have moved some things around, and marked on the floor to indicate where people should walk, and stop, to ensure distancing rules are followed by all.

Safety Screens Where Needed

It's nothing personal, we simply need to protect some of our team who have close contact with customers where it may not be possible to fully maintain social distancing. Just like in the supermarket. Behind the screen is the same friendly team member ready to help you.

We have installed Perspex protection sneeze screens on all Sales, Parts and Service Advisor desks to ensure the maximum possible protection for you and ourselves. All our customer-facing colleagues will wear masks and we have processes in place to ensure regular and effective hand washing throughout the day for all colleagues. You will find hand sanitiser pump stations throughout the dealership for your use.

​​Working in regularly sanitised offices, workshops and showrooms.

We believe in doing everything possible to protect our team members, which includes a new sanitising system in all areas of our facilities. So every tool in the workshops, every surface in the kitchens, every touch point in the rest rooms, and every corner of our showrooms and offices are subject to additional cleaning using dedicated staff working to set procedures. This is why our staff, and you, can be confident in safely working and visiting Winchester Motor Group facilities.

We have invested in sanitiser machines at all of dealerships to be able to clean inside and outside of the cars you have purchased from us before we delivered your car to your front door or before you arrive at our dealership to click & collect your new car and to our service customers.

These changes will have an impact on how we look after you and your vehicle, for example:

  • Booking specific appointment times
  • Temporary withdrawal of whilst you wait for facilities
  • On occasion asking you to wait in your vehicle until a member of the team can help you
  • Controlled and directed routes in and out of our dealerships
We have been working hard in the background to get all these new requirements in place; hopefully this will not cause any of our customers any inconvenience although it may take a little longer to drop off and collect your vehicle.
