Williston dealership uses inventory of vehicles to assist small businesses

WILLISTON, N.D. - A locally-owned car dealership in Williston is using its own inventory of vehicles to assist small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Delivery services have become a vital link in the age of social distancing, so Red Rock Ford announced it's providing up to 30 vehicles to be used by drivers providing essential items to those unable to leave their home.

Red Rock Ford General Manager JC LaBar says small businesses can pick up a rental in the morning and return it in the evening. Drivers are asked to sign a rental agreement and provide a valid drivers license and proof of insurance, all at no fee.

LaBar says the community has really stepped up to help one another during this time and that's what it's all about.

"Of course we do have quite a bit of inventory at our disposal, so we wanted to make it available to others as well. Independent drivers and small businesses to help out so they can hopefully stimulate their business if necessary and hopefully give some people some jobs in the community," said LaBar.

The offer runs through May 31. For more information, call 701-577-2142.
