IN an effort to make car repairs and maintenance seamless for organizations and individual vehicle owners, Carmax Autocare Centre, a leading Autocare company in Nigeria has introduced CARMAX AUTOGUARD to the automobile market. The product according to the company will make it easier for car owners and organizations to manage the maintenance and repair cost of their cars all year round.
Explaining how the product works, the Managing Director Carmax Autocare Centre, Mr. Andrew Ogunlana said the product is designed to give individual car owners and organizations the desired peace of mind on their vehicles. He said the product requires the client to pay one price for 365-days of Coverage and CARMAX will provide All Servicing, Preventive Maintenance and Repairs Including all Parts and Labour for the car throughout the period.
To determine the AUTOGUARD cost of a vehicle, all that is needed is the vehicle – YEAR, MAKE & MODEL and CARMAX will give a price. He said the purchase of a vehicle is an important investment and like any investment, it should be protected. With CARMAX AUTOGUARD, the car gets the Manufacturer’s suggested Servicing and Preventive Maintenance as at when due, faulty parts are replaced with original parts and when the car goes faulty, it is promptly repaired. All of these may happen at different times within the year but the client would have paid the agreed amount only once.
He expressed optimism that AUTOGUARD will help individuals and organizations plan better regarding car repair costs as the plan already covers the cost of any problem the vehicle may have.
The CARMAX boss said the AUTOGUARD product is similar to an insurance policy but unlike insurance policy, it is certain that the car owners will enjoy the benefit of the product. He said while insured vehicles may not suffer any related loss, it is certain that with AUTOGUARD the car will need to be serviced and some repairs carried out on the vehicles during the 365- day period.
