A reliable vehicle is “at the heart of a family’s needs”.

That’s why Melton Toyota has been open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, assisting locals with their motoring needs.

General manager Ray Parsons says the dealership has made a few changes in recent months to keep customers safe.

“We were grateful to be able to trade through the Stage three restrictions with the government recognising having a reliable vehicle is at the heart of our family needs,” Ray says.

“We, like all businesses, have adopted our new health practises as a matter of permanency because it makes good sense to ensure the best health outcomes for our staff and guests alike.”

Regular sanitisation of the dealership now takes place several times a day, staff health protocols are in place – including daily temperature checks – and changes to the seating in the waiting lounge and reception areas have been implemented.

Sanitisation of vehicles before and after service is also carried out.

“Making sure you maintain a safe and reliable means of mobility is as important as ever and when it comes to motoring, Melton Toyota has you covered,” Ray says.

The Toyota Genuine Service program guarantees a maximum price on a vehicle’s next service – making budgeting for the next service easy.

Ray says now is a great time for motorists to make sure their tyres are safe.

“Our service department is always available to check the health of your tyres, just drop 
by and we’ll have a look at them for you,” he says.

“We also have a financial specialist team on site, they’re available any time to help you understand what your options are and what your ideal budget would be for that next car.

“Understanding your budget is often the best place to start your car purchase journey.”

Among the offers for May and June, Melton Toyota has 1.9 per cent finance on petrol Hiace vans as well as instant cash-back tax stimulus deals.
