Honda Malaysia to resume after-sales operations during MCO Phase 4 while taking stringent precautionary measures.
Honda Malaysia has announced that the company will gradually resume its after-sales services starting 29 April 2020, following receipt of approval from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), and other required approvals. However, some after-sales services at some dealers will remain closed during the MCO period.
Following the extension of the Movement Control Order (MCO) into Phase 4, Honda Malaysia’s sales office, manufacturing plant and dealer showroom will remain closed during this period.
Honda Malaysia emphasises that it is taking all necessary precautions at its dealerships nationwide to protect the safety and well-being of its valued customers and Honda associates.
The resumption of the after-sales services comes with the implementation of proactive precautionary measures in accordance with guidelines and regulations set by MITI and other relevant bodies. Customers can visit the dealerships as frequent sanitisation and disinfection are made a basic routine at the facilities.
As we resume our after-sales services, we emphasise the importance of continuing to adhere to the MCO rules, being attentive and to take precautions, especially in hygiene through sanitization and disinfection, general cleanliness and social distancing. We deeply value the safety, well-being and health of our customers, service advisors and technicians. The precautionary and control measures will be strictly implemented at the Honda dealerships nationwide,Mr. Toichi Ishiyama, Managing Director and Chief Excutive Officer, Honda Malaysia
Upon arrival at the dealership, customers will undergo temperature scanning and hand sanitizers prepared for their use, while the customer’s appointment status is being verified.
However, individuals recording a temperature of 37.5 Celcius and above or are exhibiting symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath are advised to leave the premises to immediately seek medical attention.
Honda Malaysia is enforcing stringent measures consisting of crowd control and social distancing, where the number of customers present at any one time for their car service in the dealership shall be limited at minimum capacity.
And it is compulsory for customers to make appointments with their nearest dealers to smoothen their appointment and ensure the availability of a slot for their car service.
In order to maintain social distancing, Honda Malaysia’s dealers are commencing a car drop service. This new service allows customers with appointments to drop off their cars at the dealerships and conduct a discussion on their car service updates or enquiries via telephone with the service advisors to maintain social distance.
This practice will not only help safeguard the well-being of the customers and service advisors but also provide substantial convenience to Honda car owners.
Likewise, Honda Malaysia is taking extra precautions to ensure the highest safety and good personal hygiene of its service advisors. Temperature checking will be implemented on employees and they are reminded to wash their hands regularly and practise social distancing by maintaining a distance of 1 metre from one another at all times.
Hand sanitising stations are set up for the convenience of service advisors and customers whereas some designated areas in the dealerships will be restricted or remain closed to ensure customers’ safety.
Honda Malaysia is monitoring the development of the situation in the nation closely and working hard to ensure a safe environment even as it begins to provide its after-sales service.
The resumption of after-sales services will be conducted in stages by the dealers, in accordance with approvals from the government and it’s still subject to approval from MITI.
