Total and Toyota Tsusho Corporation (Toyotsu) Group have joined forces to offer premium, professional car care services to customers in Kenya.
Customers will now access the premium car maintenance services at select Total service stations.
Car maintenance in Kenya, and Africa in general, has been perceived as an expensive task with a high percentage of customers suffering from poor services.
In response, Toyotsu and Total have partnered with the intention of providing premium automotive parts, batteries and tyres; premium lubricants through Total’s Quartz range; modern equipment that ensures comprehensive and accurate car diagnosis; and highly-trained technicians with strong expertise.
According to Total Kenya’s Managing Director Olagoke Aluko, customers will enjoy more professional car care services.
“This partnership is a demonstration of Total’s desire to continuously offer motorists value for money while guaranteeing quality. The partnership allows Total to offer motorists quality parts from the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) resulting in significant savings in time, cost and increased car lifespan,” he said during the launch.
The brands for parts that will be available at the service stations include Denso, Aisin, Valeo and Philips. The battery brands include Yuasa and Fulmen, and tyre brands include Michelin, BFGoodrich and Tigar.
These car care services will be available at the Madaraka, Ngong Road, Karen and Muthaiga Total service stations.
Their partnership covers five countries: Kenya, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Nigeria, before being expanded to other African countries.
