Perak auto workshop association calls for insurance companies to be fair on discounts, labour rates

IPOH: The Perak Association of Workshop Owners’ Association (PAWOA) has called on insurance companies to be fair on automotive part trade discounts and labour rates.

Its president Kong Wai Kwong said there should be an adequate solution on the matter to ensure that workshops could still earn an income while the vehicles of customers are also repaired properly.

The Malaysian Competitive Commission had found last month that the General Insurance Association of Malaysia (PIAM)
