The Victorian State Government have released detailed information about the Stage 4 business restrictions which commence in metropolitan Melbourne from midnight Wednesday 5 August and are scheduled to extend for six weeks.
Under the restrictions, the onsite (from the Dealership) retailing of motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts is prohibited. Online retailing can continue and retailers can work onsite for the purposes of fulfilling online orders.
Motor vehicle servicing from Dealership premises can continue when the work is providing support for a defined permitted service or when it is required to maintain the health and safety of Victorians at home or work.
For areas outside of metropolitan Melbourne, Stage 3 restrictions will apply. Under these restrictions, Dealers can continue to trade as normal, providing they adhere to the minimum distance and sanitisation requirements.
The distribution of essential goods can continue by road, rail and air transport freight services.
