Irrespective of the distance, customers are offered a car pick-up and drop service. From minor repairs to regular maintenance, customers can avail this special after-sales service to their convenience, which saves them time to personally drive to the workshop. In addition, the company offers a lounge like experience to its customers, making the overall service experience pleasant.

To ensure consistent quality of service is achieved, the company has been promoting 90-minute-service on appointment (oil change, filters change, coolant, lubricant, etc.), mega service camps and mobile service vans in remote locations. Additionally, increasing its availability to consumers, more than 70 percent of the company’s workshops are operational on Sundays.

Moreover, complaints have been brought down by around 20% compared to the previous year. The warehouses help deliver parts and spares within 24 hours across the country. These actively engaging and comfortable after-sales services, have managed to repose customer confidence in Tata Motors’ service.
