SG Petch Coronavirus Update

Updated: Monday 13th August 2020.

All branches are now open to the general public but with slightly different opening hours than normal. Please scroll further down the page for information on these. We've also added a new video section about test drives, safety and social distancing.

We'd also like to reassure you that the safety of our customers and employees is our top priority. We’ve implemented further procedures designed to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus.

In our dealerships

During lockdown we've been busy sanitising our buildings and showroom areas using a fully trained team of cleaning professionals to ensure 99.9999% of bacteria is killed completely, including Covid-19. Please watch our video of this process below.

Social distancing

When you visit any SG Petch site, you will see we have social distancing in place. We've asked every team member to follow the guidelines put forth by the Government to prevent the spread of the infection.In addition to this you'll find the following:

  • When you arrive for your service appointment, please follow the new safety measures that we have put in place. When we return your vehicle to you, it will be fully sanitised in accordance with Government guidelines.
  • We’ve increased the number of times our facilities staff cleans and disinfects common areas across all of our dealerships by sterilizing all customer-facing and employee common areas systematically throughout the day. These areas include but not limited to door handles, countertops, restroom surfaces, handrails, tables, chairs, and many more commonly-touched areas.
  • We specifically focus on cleaning all customer-waiting areas (desks, tables, chairs, waiting areas) as soon as they’re vacated by other customers.
  • You'll find lots of new banners and stickers in and around the service and showroom areas which offer guidance on where to stand or follow and help you and our employees keep to safe distance guidelines.
  • We've installed hundreds of wall mounted dispensers so you can easily sanitise and wash your hands whilst visiting our premises.
  • All returning staff have completed awareness competency training to (SSOW - Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Guidance for employees on staying safe in the workplace) certification.

We'll be operating slightly different opening hours than normal for the time being, but these are subject to change.
