TVS group company, engaged in manufacturing braking equipment for automotive and non-automotive applications - Brakes India announced that its Qik Brake Service (QBS) has expanded its network to 65 centres pan-India.
According to a press release from the company, the QBS franchises are spread across 12 states and 40 cities, from where customers could avail services that include a quick brake check, top-up of brake fluid and radiator coolant, replacement of rotors, friction pads, lined shoe, disc brake carrier and sliding pin kit.
With respect to a tyre change, balancing, replacement of brake pads or linings, brake fluid, coolant etc., customers are looking for a quick turnaround time on their vehicles. Also, with an increasing number of multi-brand and neutral garages, the need for quality and adequate post-sales support became imperative. To enhance the customer experience, Brakes India has tied up with tyre dealers & wheel alignment centres across the country to provide a quick check and faster replacement of disc pads and rotors. This has also benefited the tyre dealers, and wheel alignment centres as this is an add-on business for them, with no additional investment.
The first quick brake service franchise was launched in 2018 on a pilot basis. With overwhelming response, the QBS network grew significantly, catering to various types of vehicle owners, as the range of products covered most of the popular models in India. The technicians in the QBS outlets are well-trained by Brakes India, which has been a leader in the braking industry with close to 60 years of experience.
