Car owners need to take ownership of their vehicle service history documents and not leave it to garages.
London, England (PRWEB UK) 3 October 2017
Servicefy launches a chargeless universal digital service history app for iOS and Android users. Franchised dealer networks are unlikely to play ball with the tech startup, as it empowers motorists with valuable service history data- right at their fingertips!
Buying a used vehicle can be daunting with some unscrupulous sellers presenting fake service history documents to boost the asking price. Servicefy app combats such practices by enabling users to attach photographic evidence of the service carried out- now prospective buyers can verify with the supposed garages that have serviced the vehicle.
Used car sellers can now share service records with potential prospects. Increasing the chances of the prospect arranging a viewing. With digitally transferable service records, new owners can easily continue to build a comprehensive chronological history. Undoubtedly, this will maximise the resale value of the vehicle.
Manufacturers are going digital with service records. BMW and Mercedes are examples of carmakers leading the way. Their service data ecosystems are bound to be exclusive to benefit their franchised dealer networks. It is bad news for motorists that prefer independent garages- because of their affordable prices. They are stuck with paper-based invoices as proof of services carried out.
Independent garages do not have a unified service records platform, until now.
"Servicefy was borne out of frustration. We wanted to design a universal platform that is open, easy to use and secure. To obtain service history information from franchised dealer networks is not straightforward. Car owners and independent garages have access to our platform." Said Tayo Ajet -Founder and CEO
Keeping a full service history for your vehicle is essential. The survey of over 2000 car owners conducted by Kwik Fit highlighted the importance. Nearly 50% would not consider buying a used car with incomplete service records. 19% on average, is the discount expected by those who would still consider buying a car with incomplete service history.
Ex-Dealer Principal, Ching Patel (Co-Founder and CCO) stated "car owners need to take ownership of their vehicle service history documents and not leave it to garages. What happens when a garage that is holding your vehicle data closes down? I have witnessed hundreds of pounds wiped out of trade-in cars value because of incomplete or no service history records; sometimes, thousands depending on the value of the car."
"The carefully crafted UI makes it a breeze to add a service record." Emmanuel Abiodun, Co-Founder and CTO explained. He continued, "Ease of use is vital to the success of the app. We have stripped off needless features- found in various car management apps. The app provides useful features such as valuation tracker, MOT due, road tax due and insurance renewal notifications. Features that will keep motorists on the right side of the law."
Motorists now have one less thing to worry about with the aid of useful reminders. You can now download the app from the App Store and Google Play Store. Servicefy app is not a replacement, but a backup platform to ensure motorists minimise unforeseen circumstances.
