No Chery Auto dealership nearby? Afraid to go out to have your car serviced? No worries. United Asia Automotive Group, Inc. (UAAGI), the official distributor of Chery vehicles in the Philippines, strengthens its aftersales service capability and reach with the Chery EC Mobile Service Program.
This will allow official authorized mechanics using specialized Chery tools and genuine parts to provide quality service to a growing number of customers. “In this time of distancing when staying home is the safest course of action, we want to make it easier and safer for our customers to have their Chery vehicles serviced,” said UAAGI president Rommel Sytin. “This is why we have embarked on a project to bring us closer to our customers with our new Chery EC Mobile Service.”
The EC Mobile Program employs a Foton Gratour MPV fitted with a customized body accommodating a service office equipped with essential tools to be able to perform Preventive Maintenance Schedule (PMS) plus other minor to major mechanical and electrical repairs and servicing.
These services can be performed through the use of special equipment including a 1.0-kilowatt inverter set used to supply electric power to tools, such as the 750-watt grinder and 850-watt electric drill. Included in the tool set is a battery-operated impact wrench used to change tires and perform other mechanical work, two large capacity oil pans to avoid spilling of used oil which are then transferred to the built-in used oil depository tanks when performing PMS, a creeper for the technician to comfortably perform underchassis work, and a variety of essential and precision hand tools.
It is also equipped with diagnostic equipment such as the Midtronics Battery tester to check battery health condition. This tester can provide a printout of the state of health and voltage reading for the customer’s record of battery condition. For engine diagnostic needs, the unit has oil, compression, and fuel pressure gauges. The mobile unit also includes advanced equipment such as a multi-function car Emergency Jumpstarter Battery (used to jumpstart and to charge USB equipment or gadgets), and a Power Probe 4 Master Kit for tracing disconnected electrical circuits without the need to dismantle the wire harness.
Servicing of the vehicle’s airconditioning system is also possible with the aircon manifold gauge. Completely self-sufficient, the mobile van is a veritable service center on wheels which can go anywhere the Chery customers are.
For individual dealerships, the Chery EC Mobile Service Program effectively extends their service range. “We believe that people needn’t be inconvenienced unnecessarily by having to bring their Chery vehicles to the shop for preventive maintenance work or repair,” added Sytin. “And this opens doors for our dealers as well to realize even greater business by freeing up workshop space at the dealerships themselves.”
The EC Mobile van also boasts of two sets of 220-volt outlets and anti-skid flooring. Mechanics can perform repairs even at night with the supplied spotlights.
“For now, only select Chery dealerships are exclusively offering this new aftersales service, but the motoring public can expect that the EC Mobile Service will be available at the rest of our dealership network across the country soon,” added Sytin.
