Byrider Launches Initiative to Support First Responders
Byrider, one of America’s largest integrated used car dealerships and franchise systems, is thanking first responders for putting themselves at risk every day to protect others. The company is offering a special discount to these brave men and women in recognition of their work on the frontlines in the fight against COVID-19. Active first responders can receive $500 to $750 off the purchase of a vehicle with proof of
employment until May 31 at participating Byrider locations. First responders include paramedics,
emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, military personnel and
other trained members of organizations connected with this type of work.
Craig Peters, chief executive officer at Byrider, said, “With this initiative, we hope to make it
more attainable for first responders to secure the reliable transportation they need to get to their
important jobs and safely return home to their families at the end of a long shift. It is simply our
way of thanking them for the courageous work they are doing every day to keep people safe.”
To protect customers and employees during the pandemic, Byrider stores have added
precautions to make the car buying process compatible with social distancing restrictions.
Customers are able to shop inventory online before coming to the store, and whenever possible
during their visit, interactions will be limited to one-on-one with communication and payment
occurring on mobile devices. Additionally, Byrider stores increased cleaning of common areas,
employees meet all CDC handwashing guidelines and vehicles are sanitized before they go on
the lot, post test-drive and before delivery of the sale.
The offer will be available at all Ohio Byrider locations and select other locations. A list of
participating stores is attached. Contact your local participating Byrider for additional details and
more information about our safe, secure, low-contact sales process.
