Are you the owner of a Chevrolet Spark in South Africa and wondering what will happen now that General Motors no longer operates in SA – read further to see how you can keep your car maintained and receive information as a loyal customer.

General Motors South Africa says that if you are a Chevrolet owner, aftersales and parts support “will continue through the existing GM dealer network to the end of 2017”. The same applies if you’re an Opel owner, although GM SA adds that this will go on only until the details of their discussions with PSA [which is in the process of buying the German brand] have been finalised.

The company emphasises that all existing warranties and service plans will remain in place and “will be honoured beyond 2017”. From 2018, however, Isuzu dealers will provide aftersales and service support to Chevrolet customers.

And if you wish to sell your Chevrolet back to the dealer? Well, GM SA had the following to say:

“We stand by our products and don’t believe there will be a need for customers to sell their vehicles back to the dealers, especially as each vehicle’s warranties and after-sales service will be honoured.

“However, should a customer want to sell their vehicle back, normal business practices will be followed, whereby the value transfer will be a negotiation between the dealer and customer,” the automaker said.

And if you’re looking for parts for your Chevrolet in the years to come? GM SA has pledged to “continue to ensure parts are available for Chevrolet vehicles for up to 10 years after production of your model has ceased”.

Are you going away for a long term project? Or has your car broken down and the repair period will take a month or so due to unavailability of replacement parts? Whatever the case may be, buying a new car is not a necessity. Perhaps a long term car hire would be the best way to go around your temporary need for a vehicle.

Long Term Car Hire Can Save You More money

A car rental can be very costly, especially when rented for short term use such as a matter of two days to a week where you get to pay for it on a day-by-day basis. As opposed to that, renting a car for longer periods of time will allow you to opt with low price rates. Since you would be using the services of a certain car hire provider longer, they will consider you as amongst their special customers you can then pay a fixed monthly rental fee which is much more affordable compared to daily charges.

There will be no need to worry About Mileage

When you rent a car for a day or two, you may think that you will only have to pay for the principal amount. You are definitely wrong with that. When you read through the agreement, you will see that you are actually bound to a certain mileage limit. Once you exceed that limit, extra charges will incur. On the other hand, this is not something that you will have to think about if you choose a long-term car rental. This will allow you to go to any location that you want or need to be.

Better Automotive Choices and Rental Packages

The company will offer you some of the best cars they have in store that come with great style and higher durability. You can even choose a luxury car that comes with every possible inclusion that you can ever need.

With all of the above given, it is very clear that a long term car hire will always be an economical choice towards temporary needs for transport.

There are many ways that people can get themselves a car for whatever reason that they need it and buying a vehicle is certainly not the only option. The cost of buying and maintaining a new car is becoming more and more expensive these days and then there is the road license and other costs that come with owning a car.

Why rent a bakkie from Comet Car Rental? 
There are many advantages to renting a bakkie over using a moving company truck. A bakkie is smaller than a truck and it is easier to drive around. You do not need a special license to drive a bakkie making them accessible for hire to everyone with just a car license. Bakkies are perfect for transporting furniture, moving your belongings to a new house, transporting a group of people around, or transporting any type of goods around.

Renting a bakkie has plenty of advantages. Having a vehicle that can transport up to 12 -15 people at a time helps you transport larger groups of people around and you use much less fuel. Bakkies are great for people who also have large families or when a number of families are travelling together. They are also useful for work, and school outings as they can accommodate more passengers than your standard car or full-size SUV.
