Germaine Auto Centre, one of the country’s best car sales and maintenance companies has partnered with the corporative of Total Nigeria to enable the latter access to vehicle maintenance services.
The partnership between Total Staff Multipurpose Cooperative Society and Germaine therefore led to the launching of a new lube bay which will cater to Total Upspring Company Nigeria Limited staff, as well as other corporate organizations in that vicinity.
Vincent Ezeh, the Managing Director of Germaine Auto Centre, while responding to the contract with the Total corporative, said “I am super excited about the partnership because it gives us the opportunity to go into Total and be able to reach out more to customers.”
The MD further added that the contract also gives Germaine Auto the opportunity to take over all the entire fleet of Total, and “I’m talking about vehicles way over a thousand units, if you put everything together with their corporative and staff and that will depend on the service we are able to give.”
On the other hand, Olawale Olasoji; President of Total Coop said the cooperative is delighted to have opened a lube in partnership with Germaine Autos.
“The idea for us was that we wanted to have the confidence that we are in good hands in regards to servicing and maintaining our cars coupled with the comfort of being able to do that in an environment that is easy for us to access without going through long and stressful queue that a normal car servicing centre experience,” Olasoji told BusinessDay.
Speaking on the services that can be carried out in the lube bay, Michael Nwah, Brand and Communications Manager at Germaine Auto Centre said “we will provide services like routine maintenance, wheel balancing & alignment, and other services highlighted in our Standard Service Plan.”
For about 20 years, Germaine has existed as an integrated automobile dealership, known for automobile purchase (new and certified pre-owned), servicing, spare part sales and vehicle body work by providing quality service to individuals and corporate organizations.
“The partnership has come to stay, we are delighted because Germaine is dedicated to giving us the exact same quality that they are known for everywhere and with them on our side, we will be able to deliver that at a cheaper price than what our members can get outside there,” Olasoji explained.
Germaine MD, Ezeh concluded by saying that the value of service that they provide is not the question owing to the fact that they have qualified and well trained technicians. “Their biggest concern is in terms of price and we have a solution to that already which is through the maintenance contract that we are selling to them.”
