Women's Basic Vehicle Maintenance Workshop in the Eastern Cape

Let’s hear it for the ladies 

Have you considered hosting a Women’s Basic Vehicle Maintenance Workshop? See how this empowering event is making a difference to the Eastern Cape Region...

Women often complain that they feel intimidated when they enter a mechanic’s workshop. Our answer? Let’s empower them by equipping them with information about running and maintaining a vehicle.

This was the insight behind the second Women’s Basic Vehicle Maintenance Workshop, which was hosted by MIWA’s East London Region and hosted at Cliffie’s Auto Repairs

As usual, the workshop started with an information session about RMI and MIWA, then moved on to focus on what women should be aware of when choosing a workshop. Attendees are also educated about procedures like changing a tyre and checking fluids.

MIWA Vice Chairperson for the Eastern Cape, Teresa Spencer Higgs, says that the event was an enormous success, with guests sharing extremely positive feedback and even asking for a follow-up session. “This is a highly valuable information-sharing opportunity, not to mention a chance for us to tell people about what we do and why it is important to choose a MIWA accredited workshop — in fact, we call on other regions to host similar events,” Teresa says.

Thanks go to suppliers that took part, including Jeff From GUD Holdings with Holts Tyreweld, Jaco from NGK, Theo from Midas – Bowls Road EL, Clint from Bosch, and Colleen and her team from TotalEnergies. Special mention also goes to MIWA workshops taking part: D&T Servicing, Rob’s Motors, and Automed Service Centre.
