Club 4X4 is excited to announce major improvements to its Roadside Assistance program, thanks to a new partnership with Digicall Assist – one of Australia’s most innovative Roadside Assistance providers.
The new Roadside Assistance offering from Club 4X4 will triple the potential tow distance that can be covered free of charge to the nearest appropriate repairer, with the maximum being increased to 150km. Accordingly, there will be a weight increase allowing towing of vehicles up to 4.5T GVM, and additionally a trailer under 4T can be included in the tow as long as the trailer details are provided at the time of the Roadside Assistance request.
Kalen Ziflian, General Manager at Club 4X4 spoke very positively of the improvements, “Our customers told us that they needed a Roadside product that covered improved weight and a greater towing distance. It is wonderful to be able to respond to that feedback and provide a product that better meets the requirement of the 4X4 enthusiast, at a price that offers strong value.”
Michael Curtin, Digicall Assist CEO, said Digicall Assist was delighted to partner with Club 4X4 to support its customers with cutting-edge roadside assist services, “We worked closely with Club 4X4 to develop a roadside assist package that not only meets its customers’ niche needs, but includes innovative geo-location to quickly get the right assistance to broken-down motorists, no matter how remote they may be, and provides peace of mind with technician live-tracking.”
