East Kent Automotive is awarded Bosch Car Service membership

East Kent Automotive Ltd has been appointed by Bosch Car Service to its growing national network of independent garages.

Ideally located between Canterbury and Dover, along the A2 near Wootton, the brand new facilities offer customers a wide range of services, including MOT, at very competitive rates. East Kent Automotive Ltd specialises in all Volkswagen and Audi Group models, as well as Jaguar Land Rover group vehicles, but is able to offer a high quality service to any make and model.

Having recently joined the network, the garage benefits from having up-to-date Bosch equipment and modern facilities. As a member of the Bosch Car Service network, the garage can guarantee customers that work will be carried out by experienced technicians, using the latest diagnostic equipment and quality parts for servicing and repair. These factors make East Kent Automotive Ltd an appealing and affordable alternative to a main dealer, while ensuring the manufacturer’s warranty is maintained.

“Having previously been part of a premium franchised network, we only ever work to the highest standards expected by our customers,” said Kirit Parmar, owner of East Kent Automotive Ltd. “Being part of the Bosch Car Service network gives us greater scope to work on all vehicles, while also giving us access to state-of-the-art training and equipment.”

The Bosch Car Service national network of garages, comprising of around 500 members in the UK and Ireland, is a Bosch programme to provide motorists with a high quality and technically competent alternative to main dealer car servicing and repair, for all vehicle makes and models. All Bosch Car Service garages work to a Code of Practice approved by the Trading Standards Institute.

In addition to online marketing support, signage and a customer care programme, garages have access to Bosch training schemes and technical expertise. The Bosch Car Service website also makes finding a garage in the network straight forward, thanks to an easy-to-use postcode search facility
