Fleet warranty is now 24 months or 24,000 miles on brake pads, discs, drums and shoes, and Dan Joyce, UK SMR/MoT business development manager for fleet, says the move reflects both the quality of parts and Kwik Fit’s technician training.
Last year Kwik Fit saw a 35% year-on-year increase in fleet demand for safety-related brake inspections, and brake pad and disc replacements – on top of a 24% rise in 2014.
Kwik Fit now expects its warrant improvement to trigger further growth in brake-related maintenance as well as other mechanical work – including all-makes and models servicing and MoTs, available at more than 600 Kwik Fit centres nationwide.
“We believe the length of warranty available is an industry best and more extensive than that available through other service outlet on similar parts,” states Joyce.
And Pete Marden, head of fleet and business development, adds: “The warranty increase on friction brake parts is also a reflection of goodwill from Kwik Fit to our fleet customers in trusting us with undertaking vehicle work.”
