Driveable, Windhoek’s drive-in vehicle assessment center officially opened last night with a stylist, upmarket event.
Driveable will provide insurance companies and brokers with an all-in-one vehicle assessment center to enhance a positive customer experience and value proposition. The center will be open Mondays to Fridays from 8:00am - 4:30pm and offer assessments, inspections and valuations for vehicles and trucks. They will also handle vehicle salvage and the entire claims process between customers and the insurance company. The drive for a one-stop customer service center is intended to minimise the time a customer spends on assessments and other related services in the event of claim, or for valuation purposes. Driveable aim to deliver additional value added services to Fleet Companies, Banks and Private Individuals in the vehicle assessment and allied services space.
“We know how stressful the process of getting your car claims can be,” explained Angelene Wiese, Managing Director of Driveable. “We decided to get rid of the hassles experienced by customer by opening a one-stop-shop for customers with an insurance claim. This makes the process easier for both clients as well as insurers. We aim to change the way vehicle claims are handled… forever!”
Flair with a manly touch would probably be the best description of this awesome launch, with food from the always welcome kitchen of Taste Academy, wine from Nitida Cellars, craft beer tasting and music by John Rock Prophet.
The Driveable site is comfortable, with free Wi-Fi access, fresh coffee and various working spaces, where the customer can sit and relax, while their vehicle is being assessed. The space was created by the very capable architect Wim Steenkamp from Wess Designs in collaboration with Snowball Studio on the interior design.
Artwork inside the space were commissioned from linocut artist, Peter Mwahalukange. Peter is currently studying at UNAM. The work done for Driveable will contribute significantly towards the funds needed in order for him to finish his studies.
Gunter Skutsch, Driveable General Manager Technical, had an important message in his speech when he said “At this stage I don’t want to say much of what is going on, on our roads but can only hope that things will get better in future with more and more road education to our road users, as at this stage it is totally unacceptable, not only for the amount of accidents and vitalities but also of how much alcohol is still involved in these accidents.” Mr. Jones Lutombi, MVA Fund Manager Accident and Injury Prevention, reinforced this message saying we need to educate the people in Namibia on road safety, and lead by example.
Driveable wants to thank the Insurance industry for the faith in supporting them with this concept, and wish everyone a safe a happy festive season on our roads.
