KEEPING their customers safe this festive season, Key Pietermaritzburg will be running a free car check before the holiday rush thus ensuring that their customer’s cars are in the best condition for their holiday travels.

“There is nothing more frustrating than planning a holiday and then being let down by your transport, so take this opportunity to all eviate any surprises along the way. Rather have a happy journey than a painful one.

“We will highlight all items to be attended to and repair them if you so choose. We will also do a diagnostic check at a reasonable rate to make sure your car is running at optimum. So don’t delay make a booking before the rush,” said service manager, Brendan Schmid.

This offer is valid until 15 December.

Key also has an added value tool for customers in the form of applications, MyChevrolet, MyOpel and MyIsuzu, available for download in the Google Play and Apple App stores today. It will immediately indicate your exact location after pushing the roadside assistance button and has many other useful features and benefits. - Supplied.
