India’s leading two-wheeler manufacturer, Bajaj Auto is organizing free service camps in the country’s flood affected areas. The camps started yesterday and will continue until 7 September. All Bajaj dealerships in the flood hit towns of Kerala, Gujarat, Karnataka, and Maharashtra will hold the camp.
The company, in a statement, informed that owners of Bajaj two-wheelers can contact their nearest authorised service centre for all service requirements. The dealerships would carry out a thorough inspection of the vehicles that includes flushing of the engine in case water has entered the motor. The service would be provided free of cost. Bajaj has clarified that dealerships won’t charge for the cost of check-up, and changing the engine oil, gasket, and air filter if required.
President of Bajaj’s motorcycle division, Sarang Kanade, said that the life and livelihood of thousands of people have been affected because of the recent floods. Bajaj has always stood by its customers. The company wants to ensure that all flood affected Bajaj two-wheelers can take to the streets as soon as possible. Dealers have been instructed to restore full mobility of the vehicles, Kanade added.
Service technicians from the neighbouring states have been rushed to the flood affected areas to address the situation. Spare parts, components and service logistics have also been despatched to the four states to ensure that Bajaj two-wheeler owners can hit the streets at the earliest.
The company statement disclosed that dealerships would also advise Bajaj motorcycle owners about preparing the insurance claim papers in case any major repairs need to be carried out on their vehicles.
