Kwik Fit doubles fleet warranty on friction brake parts

The fast-fits specialist said its decision to double the fleet warranty to what is thought to be an ‘industry best’ of 24 months/24,000 miles across brake pads, discs, drums and shoes reflects both the quality of the parts used and the training and workmanship of its expert technicians.

Last year Kwik Fit saw a 35% year-on-year increase in fleet demand for safety-related brake inspections and the replacement of brake pads and discs and that followed a 24% rise in 2014.

The move to the new warranty is expected to trigger a further rise in fleet demand for brake-related maintenance as well as the comprehensive range of other mechanical work, including all-makes and models servicing and MoTs, available at more than 600 Kwik Fit centres nationwide.

Pete Marden, head of core fleet and business development, said: “The warranty increase on friction brake parts is also a reflection of goodwill from Kwik Fit to our fleet customers in trusting us with undertaking vehicle work.

“As a result of the improved warranty we would expect the volume of brake-related work undertaken in Kwik Fit centres to continue to increase in 2016.”
