A movement that was recently launched in South Africa by a governing body representing 2500 independent workshops, automotive aftermarket distributors and parts manufacturers is asking why SA motorists are obligated to have their vehicles serviced by accredited franchised dealers to keep their warranties valid. The lobby believes that the consumer should have a choice in the matter, and plenty of cash-strapped South Africans tend to agree.
At REEDS, we understand the need to keep overheads low in a struggling economy, but we also believe in getting your money’s worth. Here’s why it is still a better idea to have your Isuzu, Opel and Chevrolet vehicles serviced at an accredited REEDS Motor Group dealership:
We are held to high standards by OEMs
Orginal equipment manufacturers (OEMs) hold accredited service providers like REEDS Motor Group to very high standards. This means you can rest assured that the workmanship you’ll enjoy is under scrutiny from various angles.
We invest in our technicians
Our technicians are trained to use specialised tools and diagnostics to repair complex modern vehicles. By investing in their continued education, REEDS Motor Group ensures that every Isuzu, Opel and Chevrolet owner gets the best service possible.
Our equipment is updated regularly
Accredited franchised dealers like REEDS are expected to pay licensing fees, update diagnostic and calibration equipment and have special tools on hand to carry out jobs on low-volume vehicles. This is not necessarily the case at independent workshops.
Built-in maintenance = simple budget management
With a built-in maintenance plan, it becomes a lot simpler to budget for scheduled maintenance, which relieves pressure on other areas of your finances.
Reselling is easier
Once you’re ready to resell your Isuzu, Opel or Chevrolet vehicle, you will find it much easier to do so if the stamps in your service booklet are all from accredited franchised dealers. It’s as simple as that.
There you have it – a concise summary of the benefits of having your Isuzu, Opel and Chevrolet vehicles serviced at an accredited REEDS Motor Group dealership.
