Nigeria gets largest multi-brand auto workshop

The unveiling of the largest multi- brand automotive workshop in Lagos will be done today to service and repair all passenger and commercial automotive brands.

The hi-tech auto company will offer 30% discounts on service and repairs in all vehicles ranging from Ferrari to Toyota between today and October 31st 2017.

According to the Managing Director of Turing Simcubator limited (TSL) Raju Sawlani, at a media briefing, “All registered corporate bodies with the organization between 19th and 31st of October, 2017, will receive special pricing.”

Sawlani said TSL will engage in the sale of new and used vehicles as well as providing round the clock roadside assistance adding that from post promotion date that TSL will price match any reputed workshop in Lagos that has over at least 18 service bays.

The TSL boss, announced that the Abuja workshop will be opened in January 2018; while Lagos centre currently has experienced 24-man team capable of handling about one thousand cars daily with genuine auto parts for its customers.

Sawlani, a veteran in the Nigerian auto industry, a former managing director of Stallion Motors, executive director of Coscharis Motors and Kewalram Chanrai group with over 21 years of experience in the Nigerian auto industry, has been exposed to over 30 automotive brands.

According to Sawlani, ” Having sold over 200,000 vehicles (valued US $7.2billion) in Nigeria over a 21 year period my customers have voiced their concern to me about after sales issues. For this reason,I decided 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 year period. In addition, our machinery and equipment 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 repair works. Nigerians are highly talented and capable people.

He explained that the main parameters that define repair quality include, quality workmanship, genuineness of spare parts, lubricants and fluid used, and the overall customer experience such as reasonable pricing.

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 end workshops. Another issue is the used vehicles being purchased from sellers of no repute. We are already taking appointments for next week to assist customers who were duped into purchasing flood damaged vehicles from the United States.

Sawlani explained that TSL was being launched in the country to restore customers confidence in the auto market from sales to after sales service both new and used vehicles adding that the company will provide a safe haven for used car sales.

He said,If you wish to purchase a used vehicle in Lagos but don’t know whether to buy it because of the high mileage, I suggest you book an appointment with us and liaise with the seller to bring the vehicle to our workshop. We will do a complete check on the vehicle in front of the seller and buyer.

He assured of the company’s commitment to assist the government in creating a level playing field in the auto industry that will take the Nigerian auto market to a global level.
