The early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic saw dozens of states impose high restrictions, or even outright bans, on traditional car sales. Though many jurisdictions have scaled back on the most severe restrictions, it’s safe to say car shopping has changed in significant ways. A survey in August 2020 by DealerRater, a Cars.com subsidiary, found some 1 in 5 recent car buyers took advantage of home delivery services. Among separate buyers surveyed in September, some 3 in 5 said they’d use such services if offered. Dealerships are responding: In August, 66% of facilities said they offer home delivery, according to DealerRater; that’s up from 49% in March.
