Off-Site Deliveries

What is your policy regarding off-site BMW deliveries? Our team is trying to limit off-site deliveries at this time, but we are making allowances for certain situations.

How far will you go to deliver my new BMW? Currently, we offer limited Delivery requests, however, we will service all of Long Island including Brooklyn and Queens.

How is my new BMW getting prepped for delivery? We’ve trained our detail department using CDC guidelines to clean and fully sanitize all New and Pre-owned cars for delivery. This includes a final sanitation of all touch-points used by the last driver of your vehicle.

Who is processing the deals following delivery?  Paperwork will be handled using CDC recommended PPE equipment of gloves and face masks by our Business Manager and DMV clerk. We will email customers their digital copies and can physically mail their copies at a later date.

Clean Processes

What is your process to ensure the delivery of a fully clean and sanitized BMW vehicle? We utilize plastic seat covers, steering wheel covers, and shift covers during our cleaning process to minimize contact with the common touch-points in your new car during the detail process. All touch-points are then wiped down with disinfectant spray.

Legal Compliance

What is the process for ensuring all documentation is compliant and identities are verified? We pride ourselves on following all compliance guidelines, and will continue to do so throughout this time.

How will I fill out the necessary paperwork? We will gather all required information needed electronically prior to delivery, and complete the necessary identification verification in person when you come to pick up your vehicle.
