Buying a used car safely: We’re giving all our cars antimicrobial treatment

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, a lot of people might be thinking about buying a used car safely. That’s why Shift is providing all our cars with an antimicrobial treatment that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses without harsh chemicals. And for a limited time, we’re offering it for free. 

The treatment we use is a professional-grade treatment normally costs around $350. But while the crisis is ongoing, we’re temporarily providing it as a complimentary offering on every one of our cars in inventory.

Working through a car’s air vents, the solution is EPA-approved, nontoxic, pet- and child-safe solution. It’s also highly effective, killing over 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew and allergens. Plus, it keeps working continuously for years. 

We’ll apply this treatment as part of our standard cleaning and conditioning services before a car leaves our hub. So whether you buy a car online or book a test drive, any Shift car we bring you will have already been given this antimicrobial treatment. 

How Shift is doing its part during the COVID-19 crisis

What It Is

The treatment we use is a safe and effective antimicrobial solution for cars that kills bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew and allergens. It acts as a sealant, creating a coating on all surfaces of the car that can last for years. 

  • EPA approved
  • Non-toxic, kid- and pet-safe
  • Used in hospitals and medical facilities
  • Kills up to 99.9% of harmful microorganisms
  • Works continuously to last for years

How It Works

It works just like a car air freshener – the solution is applied through the car’s air vents. During the treatment, the nontoxic disinfectant is blown through the vents, coating all the surfaces of the car’s interior. The process takes about 20 minutes. 

This one-time treatment creates a protective barrier on the interior surfaces of your car that stays intact for years. So you don’t need to worry about cold and flu season, and you don’t have to waste your precious disinfecting wipes on your steering wheel anymore.  And you can rest assured you’re buying a used car safely.
