CarZ Grande is a one-stop shop for all car services with a modern workshop equipped to handle all electrical and mechanical repairs, accident repairs, car wash, accessories fitment and tyre services. CarZ Express is an advanced yet compact workshop equipped to handle all common electrical and mechanical repairs including general maintenance services.
CarZ works with and has strategic partnerships with some technology and automotive component suppliers in India and overseas. “Some reputed companies we work with are Wurth, BASF, IndianOil Corporation and Amaron including several in the garage equipment and spare parts areas. CarZ also procures high quality aftermarket parts from reputed part manufacturers like Bosch, AC Delco, Rane, TVS, Mahle, and LuK to name a few,” says Donepudi.
