…Rolls Out 30% Discount on Service and Repairs
What might become Nigeria’s largest automobile maintenance workshop is set to commence operations in Lagos, from Thursday, 19th October 2017.
Known as TSL, the company, according to its founder, Mr. Raju Sawlani, will not only be able to service 1000 vehicles in a day, it will also be equipped to service and repair all passenger and commercial automotive brands “from Ferrari to Toyota.”
Addressing newsmen at the company’s headquarters on Saturday, Mr Sawlani, announced a promotional offer of 30% discount on service and repairs from October 19th to 31st 2017, adding that corporate bodies that register their fleet with the company between the same period “will receive special pricing.”
“After the promotion date,” Sawlani noted, “TSL will match any reputed workshop in Lagos that has at least 18 service bays.
TSL, according to Sawlani, will also engage in sale of new and used vehicles.
He assured: “They will provide Gold Certification and peace-of-mind on used vehicles, as well as 24/7 roadside assistance.”
On why he ventured into big scale auto maintenance and repair business, Sawlani said his decision to set up TSL was necessitated by a need to restore customer confidence in the Nigerian auto market.
“Having sold over 200,000 vehicles, valued at $7.2 billion in Nigeria over a 21-year period,” he pointed out, “my customers have voiced their concern to me about after sales issues. For this reason, I needed to launch TSL. I handpicked the best technical personnel in the Nigerian auto industry. These are highly experienced individuals, who I have observed over a 21 years period.
““The main parameters that define repair quality are quality of workmanship, genuineness of spare parts, lubricants and fluids used and the overall customer experience, which includes a reasonable price and the least amount of downtime.
“TSL will provide only genuine lubricants, fluids and parts. The downtime and stress caused by fake and substandard motor oil and motor parts drain billions of Naira from the economy. Customers have lost confidence in most high and low workshops.
“In addition, our machinery and equipments are from the top manufacturers in the world. We will prove to the world that supercars do not need to be flown out of Nigeria for service and repairs. Nigerians are highly talented and capable people.
TSL’s major corporate strategy towards achieving outstanding sales and after sales services in the NigeriN AUTO SECTOR will be staff motivation and welfare.
Sawlani revealed: “TSL’s highly experienced technical manpower will be the highest paid in the Nigerian auto industry with perks that will set a benchmark in the sector.
With the amount of sales and after sales transactions that are set to take place at TSL, the company also promised to share market data with motoring journalists and the Nigerian government to help improve automotive regulations.
“TSL will also assist the government in creating a level playing field in the auto industry, which will take the Nigerian auto market to a global level,” Sawlani added.
