Dear Valued KARS Customer,
I am pleased to inform you that as an essential business we will be re-opening for all your vehicle service needs on April 27, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.

Given the ongoing pandemic concerns and in order to comply with the recent governmental orders, the way we have previously serviced and interacted with our customers will be changing and evolving as outlined below. These new protocols are required by the Secretary of the PA Dept. of Health and are designed to protect our employees and our valued customers. Please bear with us as we adjust to the new normal. Our goal is to provide the quality service you have come to expect, however a reduced amount of direct staff to customer contact is required for compliance.

All services will be by appointment only; please NO walk-ins.

No “Smart Start” services will be performed until further notice.
Our waiting area is currently closed.

All customers having to enter the building are required to wear a mask or suitable face-covering, as will our employees, vendors and suppliers. Additionally, we will be using seat and steering wheel covers to protect everyone. Our employees will be wearing gloves and will, therefore, not be coming in direct contact with your keys or any other vehicle surface.

All vehicles will need to be dropped off for service using the night drop box, NOT at the front counter as we all are used to.

Payment for services completed or deposits taken will be via phone or other electronic means and will not require contact with the office staff, no signatures will be required.
Should you arrive to drop off your vehicle using the drop box area and another customer is in the area please exercise proper social distancing.

In lieu of the typical waiting appointment we are now offering:

Express Service Appointment- Scheduling this type of appointment will assure your vehicle is serviced and ready for you to pick up in the shortest time frame possible. These will be scheduled like “waiting appointments.” Our current scheduling allows for a limited number of Express Service Appointments per day with the vehicles being dropped off at or before 8AM. Please schedule this type of appointment specifically when calling the shop.

We encourage all customers to schedule a standard drop off service appointment with the anticipation of the vehicle being completed, paid for electronically and ready for pick-up by 4:30PM

If you are concerned about your safety and do not wish to leave your home, we will be offering a pick up and drop off service within a 10 mile radius of the shop. Call the shop for details and we will do our best to accommodate your daily schedule.
Thank you for your continued patience & patronage during what is a very challenging time for everyone. We will continue to keep you up-to-date on any additional changes.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or special requests you may have.
