The AA has launched its new on-the-spot car servicing facility for Cork. The AA’s specially designed Servicing Vans and qualified technicians are fully equipped to carry out a complete service on a car wherever suits the customer. No more need to make a garage appointment or to arrange for vehicle collection – the AA will call to your home, work or wherever is convenient. With prices from €159 it will even beat most garages on price.
What this innovative facility means for Cork based motorists is that they can now have a full car service carried out in their own driveway or at their place of work, 7 days a week between 8am and 8pm, taking the hassle out of bringing their car to the garage.
“AA Car Servicing marries convenience, competitiveness and AA quality assurance, music to the ears of motorists.” Says Conor Faughnan, Director of Policy, AA Ireland. “This has proved to be a winning formula when we piloted the scheme in Dublin over the last year. The goodwill and positive feedback has been tremendous as the testimonial below shows. We have now made the investment to bring the same facility to Cork motorists.”
“When I got my car serviced with the AA I could not have been more pleased with the service – I’ve had several car services and none to the same standard. I’ve recommended it to my friends who have said they will definitely give the AA a call! Eamonn, Santry, Dublin.
In a poll of 1,600 Cork drivers conducted by the AA in March of this year, 61.3% of respondents indicated to the AA that they selected their car service provider on the back of a recommendation from a friend, suggesting that word-of-mouth is king in the rebel county.
“Motorists have to get their cars serviced and for a lot of us that is a potential minefield.” Says Faughnan. “Now that work can be carried out by the AA. It is convenient, reliable and fully guaranteed. The price is cheaper than many garages and the convenience of our ability to come to you is a huge bonus.”
During the same poll, 17.5% of the Cork motorists indicated that they were unsure about the quality of the workmanship provided last time they dropped their car in for a service. “In addition to the massive appeal of simply having to make a phone call and have a car servicing technician come to your door, we’re confident that the AA reputation and superior service we provide will prove very successful in Cork.” Says Faughnan.
AA Car Servicing – How it works
The AA will send a specially equipped servicing van with a trained technician to carry out a full service on a car wherever and whenever within Cork that suits the customer. The process becomes hassle free and extremely convenient. It comes with the peace of mind that the car is in the AA’s hands, and with prices from €159, it will even beat most garages on price.
A full service from the AA includes an extensive range of checks that exceed most manufacturers’ service schedule requirements. The work comes with a full 12 month or 20,000 km warranty on parts and labour.
Customers are offered the AA’s expertise, a fully traceable service, flexibility, reassurance, minimal disruption, and it avoids inconveniences such as taxi, car hire and the burden of arranging lifts when using a garage.
