Transport Month: Together We Move South Africa Forward

As we all begin to increase our movements and get back out there on the road, it seems extremely fitting that October is #TransportMonth. Transport Month is used to raise awareness around safe transport measures and the theme for this years awareness month is ‘Together we move South Africa Forward’ – a statement that not only strongly resonates with our mission as a company but also with our suite of motor focused products.

By stepping in and shielding our customers from the often costly impacts associated with cars when things go wrong, we are proud to play our part in keeping South Africa moving forward through our value-added motor products. Here’s a quick look at how some of our products do exactly that;

Tyre Angel
With 60% of South Africa’s roads reportedly in poor condition and littered with potholes, Tyre Angel keeps you moving by looking after the expense of replacing or repairing car tyres damaged due to road hazards. With tyre damage being more a question of ‘when’, not ‘if’…it’s no surprise that this is one of our most popular products.

Theftbuster Plus
An innovative product built specifically for South African citizens, Theftbuster Plus is a ‘must have’, with benefits that not only look after your financial wellbeing but also the personal wellbeing of you and any loved ones who may have been in the car at the time of a hijacking or smash and grab.

Key Angel
One of the biggest misconceptions among vehicle owners is the cost of replacing your keys. Some guesstimates we’ve received in the past range anywhere from R50 – R500….which is far out from the truth. The fact is, a modern car key can cost as high as R10 000 to replace. Key Angel is packed with benefits to keep you on the move, such as key replacement cover, courtesy transport, towing and so much more.

Under the new normal, 90% of South African are keeping their cars for longer. And the older your car gets, the less reliable it becomes. Having a warranty in place is essential for the modern vehicle owner, protecting you from the often expensive repair and replacements bills caused by electrical and mechanical breakdowns.

Shortfall & Deposit Protector
You would think that things couldn’t get any worse following your car being written off…unfortunately it often does when you are hit with a bill to pay the balance owing to the finance house after your car insurance pays out…or the fact that the hard earned deposit you put down when initially purchasing you car is now all but gone. That is where Shortfall & Deposit Protector step in. Both products ensure you are financially covered, helping you to get back on your feet and moving forward.

Comprehensive Insurance
It’s a scary fact that over 60% of the vehicle’s on our roads are not insured! That means that for 60% of car owners, should something happen to their car, they are really stuck and will feel the full financial impact – even when it’s not their fault. Having comprehensive cover is your first step in ensuring you will be able to continue moving forward on your journey even after an unfortunate event such as a car accident.
