Can I still get an oil change during lockdown in Alabama? 

Life as we know it has been turned upside down as we band together (by staying apart) to fight the continued spread of COVID-19. Several businesses have been forced to temporarily close their doors, leaving some confusion about where and if people can obtain certain services. If you’re wondering, ‘Can I still get an oil change during lockdown in Alabama,’ Team Gunther Kia is here to emphatically tell you we are still open. The executive order issued by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has carved out an important exception for automotive sales and service, meaning that Team Gunther Kia is still open and ready to serve customers. Let’s take a look at how our service department is protecting customers while working on their vehicles.

How is Team Gunther Kia protecting customers? 

Even though you might be using your vehicle less often, that doesn’t mean it stops requiring attention from qualified professionals. The top brass at Team Gunther Kia was quick to implement a series of new policies to make sure our team doesn’t contaminate a customer’s vehicle. During every service appointment at Team Gunther Kia, our technicians will: 

  • Wear gloves while performing all work and changing them between appointments.
  • Wipe down/sanitize the inside of the vehicle, including the steering wheel, gear-shifter and dashboard before handing back the keys to the owners.
  • Thoroughly clean all work areas between customer visits.

Other services we’re offering right now 

While our showroom remains open, we’d like to invite customers to continue their shopping journey online as much as possible before their visit. Our new and pre-owned inventory is updated in near real-time. Additionally, if you are new to the Kia brand, you can learn about our vehicles by reading through several kinds of webpages, including head-to-head comparisons and our blog.
