BENEFITS AND ENTITLEMENTS Safety First
– If your vehicle has broken down in a hazardous location, please tell us when you call, and ensure you aren’t exposed to danger from passing traffic. Emergency Roadside Assistance
– At the site of the breakdown, Great Wall Roadside Assistance will rectify most common breakdown related problems, such as changing a flat tyre, jump-starting a flat battery, supplying emergency fuel and effecting minor roadside repairs which are safe to do at the breakdown scene. In most cases you will be on your way in no time. If major parts or factory diagnostic equipment are required, your vehicle will be transported to the nearest Authorised Great Wall repairer. The cost of repairs (unless the repair is covered under warranty) and transportation costs beyond the Towing Distance Limit (stated below) will be the responsibility of the Customer. Technical Advice
– We will provide telephone technical advice in relation to the vehicle operation, any safety warnings or lights that may appear or technical and mechanical information regarding the vehicle. Parts Replacement
– If the vehicle is under warranty and the breakdown of the vehicle was caused by a part under warranty, we will arrange for the supply and fitment of emergency parts to effect mobilisation of a vehicle in the event that an Authorised Great Wall Repairer is not open or within close proximity of the breakdown. Flat or Faulty Batteries
– Flat batteries can occur. If you find yourself immobilised with a battery problem, we will attend to your Vehicle, test the battery for performance, jump start the flat battery (if possible) and coordinate battery replacement if required. Battery replacement will be at the customer’s cost unless covered by the battery warranty. Emergency Fuel
– If you run out of fuel, we will arrange for either the delivery of an emergency supply of fuel where practical, where government regulations permit or transport the vehicle to the nearest refuelling station subject to the applicable Towing Distance Limit. The Customer will be responsible for the cost of fuel supplied. Key Replacement, Locksmith Service or Courier Service –
Where the key has been lost or stolen, or has been locked inside the Vehicle, we will either arrange for the Consumer’s spare key to be delivered to the Customer or arrange for a locksmith to attend. In the event that you insist the Vehicle be broken into to recover keys locked inside the vehicle, we will not, under any circumstances, be responsible for any loss or damage that occurs to the vehicle as a result. This service may not be available in all cases. The customer will be responsible for all costs incurred in the provision of this service. Towing –
In the event the Vehicle cannot be mobilised or is not safe to drive due to a fault which is covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, we will transport the vehicle to the nearest Authorised Great Wall Repairer. We will cover the towing costs up to $150 (‘Towing Limit’) and the customer will be responsible for any additional towing cost. Case Follow Up –
In cases where the vehicle has been transported to an Authorised Great Wall Repairer after a Breakdown, we will proactively follow up every case to ensure that the vehicle is back on the road as soon as possible. Urgent Message Relay –
In the event of a Breakdown or accident we can connect you through to family members, friends or business associates so as to notify them of any possible delays. Alternatively, you may request us to notify these people on your behalf. Accident Coordination & Towing –
Where the customer’s vehicle has been involved in an Accident, we will arrange to transport the vehicle to either an Authorised Great Wall Repairer or a repairer of the Customer’s preference. We will also advise the customer of the appropriate information to obtain from other parties involved in the accident such as third party’s name, address, contact numbers, vehicle registrations, insurance details and any witness details. The Customer will be responsible for all costs incurred in the provision of this service. Emergency Taxi Transport –
