Move around safely in the #newnormal

The Covid-19 pandemic now requires everyone to adapt to a “new normal”. This includes using masks, sanitizing, and practising proper distancing measures at work and stores. We also see changes in daily commute, where more people are opting for alternatives to public transport and e-hailing services. 

Carsome’s Consumer Survey conducted in April 2020 also found that 76 per cent of respondents are expected to reduce their use of ride-hailing services because they felt uncomfortable sharing cars with strangers.  If your concerns are similar, what can you do? 

 

Get a car

Whether it is getting a new car or buying a secondhand car, there are many choices out there to suit your needs. If you plan to sell your current car before getting a new one, you can sell it to Carsome! Our simple, 4-step selling process is professional, convenient and fast! If you’re on a budget instead, do consider buying a used car from a reputable dealer and check the car’s historical details before you seal the deal.

 

Use your current car but clean it frequently

If you have a car, it’s time to get driving!  Before you do, remember to perform cleaning and disinfecting procedures, focusing on the frequently touched areas like the steering wheel, gear shift, and door cards among others. We’ve covered this area in more detail on wipes and cleaners you should use to best clean without damaging the interior.

 

If you have to take e-hailing…

Always wear a mask to protect yourself and the driver. Do request to your driver to turn the air conditioning recirculation off and drive with the windows down. Bring along tissues, antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizers with you and practice proper coughing and sneezing etiquette by covering your nose and mouth with a tissue.
