The Automobile Association (AA) of South Africa has launched its first Auto Centre in the country.
The first centre is in Gauteng, and the group plans to open more branches throughout South Africa in the future.
The AA states that this centre is “part of its mission to provide motorists with cost-effective, reliable, and trusted services”.
Vehicle servicing and maintenance will be performed for all motorists, with AA members receiving a 10% discount on AA Auto Centre offerings.
Services that will be performed at the Auto Centre include:
- 128-point checks
- Wheel alignments
- Air-condition gas refilling
- Electrical fault finding and repairs
- Diagnostic reports with photographs
- Multi-point general vehicle safety checks
- Repairing or replacement of brakes, batteries, shock absorbers, and oil
All vehicles that pass through the AA Auto Centre will then receive certification confirming the condition of the vehicle.
The AA Auto Centre will also offer services to fleet owners and managers.
The shop will have two dedicated service bays that will be used for fleet vehicles only, ensuring minimal downtime.
“We know that fleet vehicles which aren’t on the road are costing money, so our dedicated bays reduce that risk and assist in keeping the fleet running,” said Noelan Vandayar, the owner of the first AA Auto Centre.
The first AA Auto Centre is located in Strijdom Park, Johannesburg, and is now open to the public.
