Hello Crest Lincoln Friends and Family!

 

Welcome to Crest! We are open in Sales and Service!  

We hope this letter finds you healthy and well. As you may have been aware, in March we closed the showroom of Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge to safely respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and hopefully "flatten the curve" of the virus. During that time, we pivoted to having a solely online Sales Department and maintained our on-site Service Department. Thanks to your support and patronage, Crest kept right on selling (via online and remote transactions) and servicing vehicles, and now there is a light at the end of the tunnel!


On May 20th - today - we have reopened our showroom doors with the safety and good health of our team and customers our top priority! We have created a comfortable outdoor seating area for sales on nice weather days, we've spaced out the desks within the showroom to ensure social distancing, and we continue to be highly vigilant in our cleaning and sanitizing processes within the store and in every vehicle we sell and service. We have hired another person whose work is devoted entirely to disinfecting the dealership. For our collective good health, there are sanitizing stations and socially distant, masked sales consultants in our showroom. No snacks or reading material will be on hand for the time being to further our clients' safety.

 

We continue to offer At Home Test Drives, online sales, and Pickup and Delivery for all of our clients. That said, if you feel the desire to stretch your legs and visit the gorgeous Lincoln lineup and about sixty pre-owned vehicles on our lot, we would be happy to have you join us at 185 Amity Road again!

We look forward to seeing you at Crest!

 

Please feel free to call us with questions or to book your sales or service appointment today: 888-697-1070.

 

Sincerely,


Dick Fitzpatrick, Steve Nathman & The Crest Lincoln Team



                                                                                                                                                                                          

Spring 2020

To our Valued Customers, 
 
At this time when the news is dominated by Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know that we are vigilantly implementing enhanced protocols to ensure your safety when visiting Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge. The showroom is now closed, but our Service and Parts Departments are happy to assist you from 7:30am-4pm Monday through Friday and if you're searching for a vehicle, we are happy to bring Crest to you so that you can experience the effortlessness and safety of an At Home Test Drive. More about this is below.

Here's where we are at this time:

  • We are reminding employees through multiple channels about washing hands often.
  • For guests, we are providing more hand sanitizer dispensers across our businesses in high visibility and high traffic areas. We are also increasing our reserves of hand sanitizers for use by our guests and employees over an extended period. 
  • We are buying more cleaning and disinfectant supplies. We are increasing the frequency of cleaning high-touch surfaces in public areas with additional staffing.
  • If an employee appears to be suffering from flu-like symptoms, they will be asked to promptly seek medical attention and to remain at home until they are free of symptoms. 
  • We are encouraging guests who are ill to seek medical attention and to avoid public exposure as much as possible. Please avoid our businesses if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and call to cancel any existing appointments. We will be happy to re-schedule for a future date. 

If you would prefer to stay at home while Crest comes to you during this time, we offer:

  • Lincoln Pickup & Delivery: your Lincoln vehicle services can be done from the comfort of your own home. We will bring you a loaner and take your vehicle in for servicing and then return your vehicle to you.
  • At Home Test Drive: we will bring a vehicle to your neighborhood so you can drive it in your familiar surroundings.

For further information about Lincoln Pickup & Delivery or the At Home Test Drive, don't hesitate to call Crest at 888-697-1070 and we'll help arrange both or either service for you.

We very much appreciate your business and loyalty to Crest. Your peace of mind is very important to us and please know that the health and safety of our whole Crest community - customers, employees, local businesses, an families are our most important consideration.

Take Care,

July 7, 2016

First Selectman Ellen Scalettar recently visited Crest Lincoln/Jaguar which has been in Woodbridge for 22 years. Scalettar frequently visits the Woodbridge businesses to discuss current Town topics and deepen the bond between the Town Hall and the Town's businesses.

Richard Fitzpatrick has owned Crest since 1976 and moved the dealership to Woodbridge in 1994 for location and convenience. "Being in Woodbridge allows us to be at the heart of our clientele. The Merritt Parkway allows for easy access within a 30 mile radius," explains Steve Nathman, General Manager.

Crest Lincoln/Jaguar has a car for everyone. While the Lincoln Compact Sports Utility and the Jaguar Sports Utility are the most popular selling cars, Crest offers a wide array of new and used cars from various top automakers such as Ford, Buick, Toyota, Subaru, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Jeep and Mazda. Hybrids are popular and the new Stop Start Technology is available in both Lincoln and Jaguars. This green, eco-friendly feature reduces fuel consumption and emissions. The 2017 Lincoln Continental will be available this September at the dealership.

Crest offers State emissions testing to the public. Additionally, the dealership services all model cars and prides itself on its top-ranked customer service. "Our reputation is what we cherish more than anything in the world. We are extremely service oriented. What we say we will do for a client, is what we do. Ongoing customer relationships is our focus," said Nathman, "We have happy customers," adds Jeff White, Parts & Service Director.

Crest operates with a staff of 45 employees many of whom have been with the dealership for over 30 years. The family-oriented business culture promotes staff longevity which contributes to the dealership's success. Crest is proud to be a part of the Woodbridge Business District and supports local organizations including the Shubert Theater and events like the Beat the Heat/One Innocent Life 5K recently held in Woodbridge and Driven to Give where Crest partners with the JCC and the dealership donates $20 for every test drive up to $8000. Crest is also co-sponsoring (along with immigration services and local churches) a refugee family that is settling in the Woodbridge area.

"Each time I visit a Woodbridge business, I am impressed by the depth and quality of service. The Crest dealership is one of the Town's largest employers and is an important anchor in our business community," said Scalettar as she concluded the visit with Crest Lincoln/Jaguar.
