Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd had started the U trust outlets with the aim of increasing its market. The U trust centres were created to build a positive image of the company with their services and facilities. At the same time the company wished to create a market for their used cars. Thus U Trust Outlets were started. Until July 2012, there were around 21 U Trust Outlets in the country. The company had said that by March 2013 they will have 35 U trust outlets in India, which they achieved. Now in July 2013, the total number of Toyota U Trust Outlets in India has become 50. Toyota has started the 50th U Trust outlet in Kerala in Mallapuram. It is called Amana Toyota. The company has now decided to increase the number of outlets to 65 by the end of 2013.
Just like every other Toyota U trust Outlet, Amana Toyota too offers its customers a great showroom where they can buy and sale used cars. The best feature of the Toyota U Trust Outlet is that you can exchange your used car for a brand new Toyota Model. What makes it even more appealing is that you can exchange a car of “any make”. The customer can also exchange his present car for a second hand Toyota vehicle. Apart from this buy and sell service, the U Trust Outlets also offer an array of other services. The customers can benefit from various financing options at these outlets as well purchase genuine Toyota accessories.
The customers have a lot of reason to head for a nearby Toyota U trust Outlet. Firstly the customers purchasing through these outlets will be eligible to get a “Certification” for their vehicles. The vehicles purchased from these centres get a warranty of up to 1 year or 15,000 kms (whichever is reached earlier). In addition to this, the customers also get a bonus of 3 free services (even labour charges waived off) at any Toyota dealership. The 1 year warranty extends coverage to the gear box and engine as well but for ‘Certified’ Toyota cars only.
Deputy Managing Director of Marketing at TKM, Mr. Sandeep Singh said that “…We aim to provide our customers a Toyota experience and treat them on par with the new customers. A new car or a used car, the ownership experience is a Toyota experience and we welcome all to come and enjoy this experience.”
Senior Vice President of Marketing at TKM, Mr. N. Raja said that “The used car business is a part of our value added services offered to our customers. The market for used cars is growing at a rapid pace and plays an important part in attracting new customers and retaining existing Toyota customers.
