This too shall pass. That phrase has brought comfort to many through the centuries and we want to pass along such comfort to you our dear customers. In these difficult times, it’s vital that we take good care of ourselves and one another.
As the Coronavirus has affected each and every one of us in some way or another, we can only continue to do our part to help get this pandemic in our rearview mirror. Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center. First off, we are open. We here at Kneble’s Auto Service Center will continue to serve our community in a safe capacity to make sure your vehicle operates properly when needed.
Our technicians are instructed to wear a new pair of gloves for each vehicle repaired. We are disinfecting our counters and doors between customers. While we love to see all your smiling faces, we want you to maintain social distancing, so dropping off your vehicle for repair is preferred. We have available night or day drop off. You never have to come into our facility. When your repair is done, we will complete the transaction over the phone and leave your keys back inside your vehicle.
Also, please take note that New Jersey motor vehicle centers and testing stations are temporarily closed. Therefore, a two-month extension has been instituted, meaning if your driver’s license, vehicle registration, or inspection sticker on your vehicle expires before May 31st, then you have an additional two months to renew it. If you want, you can renew your registration online and that’s an option to get ahead of the curve.
Please support small businesses, as many are still open, especially our local restaurants for takeout or delivery. Many stores have designated morning hours for our local seniors to shop. Do your due diligence and wash your hands thoroughly and often. Stay healthy. Thank you for watching and remember, appointments can be made online for your convenience or by phone. We’d rather be overly cautious and remain safe and healthy. Thank you.
We here at Knebles Auto are remaining open and taking every precaution to keep you safe and keep your car on the road. For example, we’re disinfecting the waiting room between each customer visit. In fact, we’re recommending that if at all possible you drop your car off and leave it so we can avoid waiters gathering in our waiting area. Additionally, our technicians are constantly changing their gloves to further our efforts to keep your cars as clean as possible. We appreciate your support of small businesses here in Mays Landing.
Despite the need to commit to social distancing whenever possible, we know that there’s no way to avoid driving at times. When driving is necessary it’s vital to keep your car itself clean and virus free. According to the CDC, the virus can live on surfaces for up to four days. Here are some things you can do to keep your car clean and coronavirus free.
Soap & Water – Just in the same way that soap and water can kill the virus on your hands, it does the same in your car. Washing surfaces for at least 20 seconds is absolutely vital though. Over the course of those 20 seconds, the soap is attaching itself to the fatty outer body of the virus and tearing it apart. If you stop too soon the soap won’t have enough time to kill the virus. It doesn’t matter what type of soap you use either, antibacterial, flowery artisan soap or Dawn, they all work fine.
Don’t Use Bleach or Hydrogen Peroxide – Both of these products can damage your interior and we’re not just talking about the color of your fabric. First, any plastics that you have can be damaged by these products. If your interior has vinyl anywhere in it they can be broken down by both bleach and hydrogen peroxide.
Be Detailed – Make sure you focus on everything that gets touched when you’re in your car. Buttons, switches, handles, knobs, belt buckles and most of all your steering wheel need detailed focus. Think of this as an excellent time to do a deep cleaning on your car. You’ll enjoy getting into it a little more each time thereafter.
Other Considerations – When refueling touch as little as possible and if possible fill up entirely because it will mean you have to stop and refuel less. Additionally, if you’re sick you may check your car for a first aid kit. It may very well have a facemask that you can use should you need one. It may also have disinfectant wipes for you to use as needed as well.
This virus has clearly changed the world. Here in New Jersey, we’ve even seen the DMV extend expiration dates for license plates and other documents. Here’s a list of local businesses that are still open to one degree or another. If you’re hungry there’s this list of eateries and restaurants that are remaining open too.
We are proud to do whatever we can to help keep your life as normal as possible. We are happy to answer any further questions you may have and hope you and your family are safe and healthy!
