Your dealer warranty is protected with Rathcoole Commercial

It is a common misconception that customers must go to the registered dealer for services and repairs of their commercial vehicles. However, this is not entirely true. Under the EU Block Exemption Law, customers have the right to choose where they take their vehicles for servicing and repairs.

The EU Block Exemption Law was introduced to promote competition in the automotive industry, allowing independent garages to compete with registered dealerships. This law ensures that customers are not bound to go to the dealer for servicing or repairs, but can choose any garage that uses genuine parts and has appropriately qualified mechanics.
