COVID-19 Update

Dear Customers and Friends,

We understand the growing concern surrounding coronavirus (COVID -19) and we feel for those who have been impacted. Prime Lube is closely monitoring any and all updates on the COVID-19 situation and our team is strictly adhering to the recommendations offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and applicable state and local health agencies. We encourage you to also follow the basics steps recommended to protect you and your families.

Our Salesforce is directed to stay home and take care of themselves; conducting business with you our valued customer, through phone calls, texting and e-mail. That’s the best way we can help minimize the spread of the illness while still attending to your supply needs. Our drivers have been provided with the necessary safety items to keep them and you safe, while limiting facing time. Our staff is following CDC guidelines and working remotely where possible.

While we are hopeful that this situation will improve as we move into the warmer months, we will take all necessary precautions until that time. Depending on State and local actions, it is possible that we may experience a supply disruption that is out of our control, so we encourage you to work with your Rep to manage inventory and prevent emergency situations from occurring.

We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and cooperation during this trying situation. We wish all of our customers and their families the best. Please stay safe and healthy.


Gino Arbasetti, President
