Car Repair Plan

“Cars are amazing. They are hugely complex pieces of technology and we use them – and abuse them – every day!

In the main, we climb into them in the morning, take for granted that they will start first time from cold, drive them a few miles without warming them up, crunch the gears up and down, and enjoy regular – often sudden – braking. Alternatively, we hit the motorway, embarking on a long journey, and sustain a pretty high speed (within the legal limits, of course!)

Imagine an aircraft taking off under the same conditions, with no pre-flight checks and piloted by a captain who plays fast and loose with the altitude and the throttle. Would you get in to a plane under those circumstances? Probably not. We do this all the time with our cars, and yet we expect them to work all the time.

But go wrong they do…”

About Car Repair Plan

The Independent Garage Association (IGA) has launched its own Car Repair Plan; “We know that running a car is an expensive proposition – and if you have a number of cars in your family, the costs just spiral”.

It allows you to save as much or as little as you want on a regular basis whilst having the funds available to pay for the service and repair of your car – and other vehicles in your family.

The scheme is flexible and you can alter the payment or take a break when you feel you have enough. You can also view your balance online at any time.

When you bring your car into Kent Car Craft Ltd, you can choose to use all or some of your account balance when settling the bill. The process is simple and straightforward and there are no hidden costs or additional charges.
