With the average age of vehicles on UK roads steadily increasing for the past decade and estimated to be almost eight years in 2016, Bosch Car Service is reminding customers of its free Roadside Assistance offering.
Operated by Allianz Global Assistance UK, the Bosch Car Service Roadside Assistance package covers all car makes and models up to 10 years old and is completely free of charge to customers who have a qualifying service at a participating BCS garages, and there are 17 in Wales.
The service reflects growing demand from motorists who want a roadside assistance service for older vehicles, ensuring they’re covered for unexpected breakdowns.
Customers of participating BCS garages have access to a free roadside assistance service including vehicle recovery for all mechanical and electrical faults. This includes punctures, accidents and breakdowns, vandalism and battery faults, as well as assistance if a customer is locked out of their vehicle, has run out of fuel or filled up with the incorrect fuel.
Shenoa Davies, BCS Concept Manager, said, “Generally speaking, BCS garages are seeing more motorists bringing in older vehicles and the provision of free roadside assistance for vehicles up to ten years old responds to this trend.
“Whether they’ve bought a vehicle from new and held on to it, or they’ve purchased a used car, customers get the same high level of service they have always enjoyed from BCS garages. The highly trained garage technicians and Allianz Global Assistance recovery teams are on hand to deliver the ultimate vehicle support, when customers need it most.”
All Bosch Car Service garages work to a Code of Practice approved by the Trading Standards institute.
In addition to online marketing support, signage and customer care programme, garages have access to Bosch training schemes and technical expertise. The Bosch Car Service website also makes finding a garage in the network straight forward, thanks to an easy-to-use postcode search facility.
