Continental Says BestDrive Locations Will Stay Open

Posted on March 26, 2020

Continental Tire the Americas LLC says its BestDrive locations remain open during the COVID-19 crisis “as an essential partner for critical transportation needs.”

BestDrive also will continue its retread operations, according to Continental officials. “Increased retread demand is a natural result of many BestDrive customers increasing the frequency of deliveries to grocery stores, pharmacies, healthcare facilities, and other critical areas.”

In addition, BestDrive locations will continue to provide emergency roadside service “for fleets in immediate need of assistance.”

To protect its employees, Continental says BestDrive is suspending “all non-essential functions not directly related to essential business needs, including face-to-face sales visits. This in no way precludes the BestDrive team from following up via telephone, video conferencing, or other means to ensure essential customers can accomplish their work.

“BestDrive will work with fleets to find ways to limit personal exposure while meeting business needs.”
