A passion for warranties!
As a professional and equitable partner to the automotive industry, we offer greater security through our products and services.
On one hand, our individual warranty programmes provide our partners – whether they are dealerships and workshops, or manufacturers and importers – with lasting tools for customer loyalty and contribute to an increased use of their workshops. On the other, a warranty from the dealership provides the customer with quality assurance and comprehensive cost control.
Together with our employees, we set the industry standard. We are constantly seeking to redefine customer loyalty.
Our methods are based on the following five principles:
We are customer-oriented!
We maintain close relationships to the market and our partners. We see ourselves as service providers and consultants who transmit knowledge and share our experiences, even across national borders. We offer our customers innovative, customised and simple solutions and products. Individual service and high-quality consultation come naturally to us.
We are flexible!
As a mid-sized company, we attach great importance to horizontal hierarchies and efficient decision-making strategies. We are continually reacting to changes in the market and revising our company and its structure.
We strive for excellence!
Each day, we aim to identify and pursue the best course to ensure customer loyalty for our partners. We are motivated by a passion for innovative solutions and our customer-oriented portfolio. A continual process of analysis, revision and optimisation is essential to meeting our goals and providing inspiration. We implement active measures to make improvements.
We are honest, fair and think in the long-term!
To ensure lasting growth, we prioritise open communication and close collaboration with our partners. Long-term collaborations and a fair and respectful attitude are our hallmark. We take all applicable laws, regulations and internal guidelines seriously and adhere to them.
We value our employees!
Passion and team spirit are not just catch phrases at Real Garant. The talent and motivation of our staff is truly the engine of our success. At Real Garant, our employees’ independence paired with their development lays the foundation for success. We value feedback and are continually learning.
