What is a Service Plan?

The Auto Guard SA service plan is a comprehensive package of replacement parts and labour for all motor vehicles, makes and models. These are parts that are changed at specific intervals in relation to the kilometers traveled to ensure the vehicle runs efficiently and performs at its optimum level. As a vehicle runs, the engine oil will tend to thicken, why? This is from the dirt that is captured by the oil filter as it circulates through the engine. The fuel that moves your vehicle runs through cylinders and various channels overseen by the fuel filter and this filter ensures that this fluid is as clean as possible when it reaches the engine. An Air Filter thats sits in a vacuum system removes solids like dusts from the that enters the front part of the vehicles and can even seep into the engine and cause damage. These are some of the components replaced when a vehicle goes in for a service and their purpose.

Where will my vehicle be serviced?

The Auto Guard SA service plan will ensure that these tasks and parts are professionally removed and replaced at the correct intervals by qualified workshops and mechanics at either dealer agents or RMI approved centers across the country. The “dealer agent” is manufacture of the vehicle you drive, for example: Audi, BMW and Toyota. RMI- “Retail Motor Industry” is a automotive governing body that regulates the sector and people that operate in it to be well trained and qualified to be given certification that any work and parts used are quality and carry a warranty with them. Auto Guard SA therefore offers this option too, for competitive pricing, flexibility to accommodate all regions and afford-ability.

Do I need a “Warranty Plan” with my Auto Guard SA- Service Plan?

At Auto Guard SA we encourage you do get a reputable warranty plan/extender rather than investing in a maintenance Plan and heres why. A maintenance plan will cover all the items in a service plan and all other maintenance items that are wear & tear rated. However this offering is limited, where not all the items covered may be paid for in full by the service provider, leaving you the consumer having to pay excess to activate the claim. Secondly, the requirements are for not vehicles older than 5 years after production/model release or +- 120 000 kms traveled.  Now that on its own is a discouragement as genuine parts from the manufacture are designed to last you a MINIMUM of 5 years if the vehicle is used moderately as per recommendation which would be keeping to the kilometer parameters in the service book (10-15 000 kms per annum) on most or standard vehicles.

Our service plan is considered a kind of budgeting aid, by assisting you by paying the FULL COST of a motor car service – then a warranty can be considered an emergency mechanical assistant – by helping you pay for the cost of a breakdown and repair for a new and old vehicle up to 15 years/250-300 000 kms old) depending on the cover you choose.

Tyre Plan

As a vehicle owner, making use of it on a daily basis, know that there are running costs apart from fuel. If you already have a service plan with AutoGuard, great!

These running costs can leave your vehicle to be regarded as non-roadworthy should these be left off for too long. TYRES have proved to be a difficult necessity to purchase at any given moment of the month, which leads to motorists settling for second hand tyres with no solid guarantee for their safety and passengers they may be traveling with.

AutoGuard prides itself in sourcing all the main tyre brands in the country and endures to do so at the best prices specifically for the featured brands. With this ability of strong sourcing we are also able to provide these on better paying terms that the basic point of sale (pos) method which may be difficult if cashflow is a problem.
