With spare parts, it's all about the brand

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending time and money getting your car serviced, only to be let down by the quality of the parts you’ve put in. It often comes down to the brand. A good brand can make all the difference between a well-functioning enduring part and a poor performing component that quickly packs up altogether. And this principle also applies to treatment products such as fuel additives and leak sealants.

Why not spend your precious time and money efficiently and effectively with high performing inputs? Autoworld is constantly searching out quality brands. And the goal is to help your vehicle perform at its very best.

Brands we're proud to have recently promoted include Hella lighting products, NF fuel additives, Turtlewax interior polishes and the Shield range of car care and maintenance products.

We also recommend and stock Wynn's oil treatment products and Redman solid brass battery terminals.

Autoworld specials on KYB and Monroe shocks

Autoworld_Special_May_2019.jpg

Potholes and gravel roads significantly reduce the life of vehicle suspension components, especially shocks, though driving cautiously over bad roads will help. See our previous article on shocks.

Worn out shocks not only adversely effect passenger comfort but also driver control and wear and tear on other components.

Now is definitely the time to sort out your shocks, because this month we have a package of offers on shock absorbers!

1) A big 20% discount off all KYB and Monroe shock absorbers.

2) If you buy a set of 4 shocks, a further 20% discount applies to the fitting charge.

The only catch is that this offer expires 8th May! Make sure you don’t miss out :)

The Autoworld Zambia marchers with their banner

8th March 2019 was International Women’s Day, and Autoworld participated in the March Past. Team Autoworld were looking sharp in smart co-ordinated chitenge outfits.

Vice President Inonge Wina, Zambia’s first woman Vice President, was the honoured guest. She encouraged the women of Zambia to be vibrant and innovative as the country is now being moved by women in many leadership roles and other walks of life.

The theme for International Women’s Day in Zambia was “Think equal. Build smart. Innovate for change”.

Autoworld partners with ISL Colour Race for Cancer 2019

The 2019 ISL ‘Super Heroes’ Colour Race for Cancer will take place on May 1st 2019. This 5km fun run / walk starts and finishes at the sports field at ISL (International School of Lusaka). More avid runners can do the loop twice; and there is a shorter 2.5 km loop for younger children. Come and run or walk, bring the children and make it a family day! There will be live entertainment, food and drinks and activities for the children. This race is organised by ISL in conjunction with the Sam Damalis Trust Fund.

How do we register?
To register, click here and complete the details. It costs just ZMW150 per person.

Tell me about the ‘Colour’ theme? And the ‘Super Heroes’ theme?
Everyone is free to interpret these themes in their own way - whatever they’re comfortable with, however they want to express themselves - through costume, wig, face paint, body paint … the choice is yours.

What is Autoworld’s role?
This year (2019) Autoworld is partnering with the organisers of the race through sponsorship.

What happens to the funds raised?
All funds raised are dedicated to helping children battling cancer in Zambia. The organisers work closely with the Paediatric Cancer Ward at UTH.

Over the last 8 years, this initiative has raised funds towards medication, specialised diagnostic tests, supplemented nursing staff salaries, equipment for kitchen for carers to use, monthly supply of chlorine, creating a play area for the children, given additional assistance to Kayula Home, assistance to Twende Learning Centre and, from the beginning of 2018, a weekly supply of clean drinking water to the ward. Find more details here.

What happened last year?
International School of Lusaka has been running the Colour Run for the last 5 years. Last year the Sam Damalis Trust Fund joined forces and together they hosted the very first Colour Run for Cancer in June 2018.

Attended by 650 runners, including many children, the 2018 event raised ZMW 85 000. After consultation with the doctors from the UTH paediatric cancer ward, the money was spent on some refurbishments to ensure privacy for the patients in the high care ward, an industrial floor cleaner, air conditioning for the classroom in the ward and a contribution towards the teacher’s salary. Each week they provide 16 x 20 litre bottles of water to the ward and each month a 50kg drum of chlorine.

A Christmas Eve to remember - by Annie Zulu

Joseph Mulenga has been a security guard at Autoworld for the last 10 years. He retired last month and was presented with parting gifts from Autoworld staff members. Everyone knows him as “Zemule”.

For many years Mr Mulenga has been part of Autoworld life, watching over the vehicles and outside premises, and helping around the fitment center with various jobs. He has always been helpful to members of staff; and on his retirement, some of the Autoworld team had the idea of buying him a Christmas present to say thank you. This was all in the spirit of giving around this festive season. The gifts were presented on Dec 24 2018, Christmas Eve. Joseph is a man of few words but we were happy to put a smile on his face. He did not expect this and it was a wonderful surprise for him. His present included a monetary gift and a Christmas hamper of assorted items.

Joseph Mulenga is a family man with five children and four grandchildren. He managed to build a house before he retired. We all wished him well at the presentation and urged him to continue to support his family.

Autoworld admin team hits the water. By Annie Zulu

For the administration team at Autoworld’s head office in Lusaka, 2018 has been a very busy year of serious hard work. But all that was forgotten on 15th December as the team set off from Kafue River Cliff on a two-hour ‘Lady Betty’ cruise. Christmas had begun!

A very relaxed team of Autoworld staff with Director Glenn Findlay. Don’t be cheated by those innocent looking faces! We got to see their other side as the event progressed ...

While the ‘Lady Betty’ glided along the beautiful Kafue River, everyone joined in the fun ...

Annabel gently follows the tune and softly goes with the flow, like a model … The whole body moves and feels the rhythm. Josais was speechless, all he could do was say, “Ha!!”

Andrew Malembeka could not meet the Director’s moves as you can see. Go Andrew go! Everyone cheered them on … Sepiso wanted to overdo Freddy, with ‘Dombolo style by Sepiso’. It was a great time of dancing and laughter.

Later we all sat down together, had a sumptuous meal, and played ‘the alphabet game’. You think people know their ABC?? Did you know that “B” is for jowboints (meaning ball joints) “Z” is for zebruary and “U” is for Europe”? Oh la la! But finally, we had a winner - Gopal - and he deserves a trophy because it was not easy.

At the end of the day, we had a very Merry Autoworld Christmas.

Wishing you all a very happy new year, full of laughter.

Autoworld and the 2018 Labour Day celebrations

Labour Day 1.jpg

1st May is Labour Day, which is renowned internationally. In Zambia our theme for this year was ‘Building Partnerships for Sustainable National Development Through Job Creation and Social Justice’. With jobs having become so scarce, especially for the youth, this theme was very timely.
 
The Guest of honour was H.E. President Edgar Lungu who took the salute from the enthusiastic marching workers.

Autoworld had two employees awarded prizes - Ms Ruth Sakala , from Head Office, for honesty;  and Mr Isilimwe Mulambwa of Ndola branch, also for honesty. In addition, Autoworld won a trophy for coming second in the Float Category for the display on the Autoworld speed boat. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Truck and Bus Tyres offer - on all Triangle and Doublestar tyres

Calling all truckers and bus companies in Zambia. A massive 20% off all Triangle and Doublestar tyres while stocks last.

Three reasons why you should replace worn out tyres:

  • Tyre treads provide the traction necessary to grip wet or oily roads
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres cool, reducing the risk of blowouts
  • Tyre treads help keep your tyres inflated. Low pressure tyres can’t grip the road as well, making it harder to steer the vehicle, harder to brake, and increasing fuel costs.

What better time than now to replace fleet vehicle tyres - with this amazing 20% discount offer from Autoworld!
