We at Wierda Car Service Centre are committed to providing quality service and repairs.
Once the car has been serviced and repaired, the vehicle is tested to ensure safe, reliable and effective workmanship was carried out by Wierda Car Service Centre.
As with any large complex mechanical product, faults may occur which are not picked up during the test drive and therefor only become apparent once the vehicle has left the premises.
Should one believe there is a fault with their vehicle, please ensure the car is returned to the Wierda Car Service Centre branch. This guarantee covers any workmanship or defective parts supplied by us, but is subject and limited to the vehicle being returned to our workshop in order for us to repair it. One is unable to make a claim against Wierda Car Service Centre if the car has been assessed or serviced by another workshop other than the Wierda Car Service Centre workshop where the car was originally serviced.
If a dispute arises regarding the service/guarantee, Wierda Car Service Centre will make use of an independent party such as the AA, RMI or OMI. A report will be generated by the independent party to determine whether the claim is valid. If the report finds the defect arose from faulty workmanship or parts, it will be rectified by Wierda Car Service Centre. If the report determines the defect was due to inherent defects within the vehicle, normal wear and tear or improper handling of the vehicle, Wierda Car Service Centre will not be held liable.
Please note that the guarantee does not cover the following:
- Costs relating to the fault such as towing fees, hotel charges, loss of personal effects and income, car hire or petrol.
