Accessible Customer Service Plan
Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities
Highbury Ford Sales Limited is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.
We will ensure that our employees are trained and familiar with various assistive devices that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability to the best of our abilities.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed in the areas of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises. Fees will not be charged for support persons. We will notify customers of this through a notice posted on our premises and through www.highburyford.com.
