The Pillars Of Our Business
Gizane Assessing Services was formed in 2005 by Sipho Timothy Ntshingila. Sipho started this company by sub – contracting work from out of Durban companies who needed the service.
Sipho’s love for risk management on fleet vehicles started in 1995 when he went on the BMW fulltime cadet training. He stayed with BMW SA until 1998 when his career in the fleet industry began as he joined Imperial Fleet Services (IFS) as a Senior Account Executive assisting Walter Smith’s team in running the KZN office based in Durban.
In 2001 he moved to Imperial Auto Body in Hermanstad, Pretoria as a workshop manager.
He stayed with them until September 2005 and his last position with them was National Technical Manager. The main deliverable in this position was that of transforming the Imperial workshops countrywide from operating as ordinary workshops into operating as proper corporate entities. He then started his Assessing training with Tony Pestana and Associates in Johannesburg.
Sipho had to go back to the corporate world in August 2006 due to the fact that the company was struggling to get business.
He then joined Phakisa world’s as a Regional manager for KZN and in January 2007 he was promoted into the position of Operations Director.
Phakisaworld Fleet Solutions is a subsidiary of Barloworld group. He held this position until September 2009 when his company (Gizane Assessing Services) got a contract with of South Africa’s SOEs.
Mr. Ntshingila is currently one of the executive members of South African Association of Motor Assessors (SAAMA) and SAAMA is a full member of the newly formed Vehicle Damage Quantification organization where all the major insurance companies are represented.
The company today is contracted to some of leading Insurance and Fleet management organizations. We, as a company, assure you that all Motor Vehicle Repair Audits, Assessments, Cost Recoveries and investigations there-of will be dealt with the utmost accuracy, fairness and above all, integrity. We place a lot of emphasis on proper diagnostics and other factors which determines fair wear and tear e.g. vehicle age, distance travelled and overall condition from the mechanical components, electrics, through to the bodywork and upholstery.
We have witnessed a lot of incidents caused by the fact that the vehicle was using illegal tires or the brakes not in a good state of repair during the time of the accident. As we all know, abuse or neglect and lack of attention to detail, particularly in regard to schedule servicing and illegal tires are the main reasons for most accidents and excessive wear and tear. Gizane Assessing Services, however; takes each assignment individually and looks at all contributing factors when making decisions. When we submit the reports, there will be no grey areas that could lead to discomfort, disagreements and disappointment later. Our continuous drive towards timely and efficient service, with a focus on cost effectiveness, will ultimately ensure the gratification of all.
The implementation of innovative ideas, concepts and ongoing research within the industry will ensure that GIZANE ASSESSING SERVICES become one of the top companies in Assessments, Inspections and Post Audit Assessments in the country. Gizane Assessing Services is aware of struggles faced by organizations like yourselves in balancing their budgets. Their revenue is mainly affected by factors like weather extremes, substandard road conditions and driving conditions. Needless to say the focus is now on reducing the costs caused by above-mentioned conditions and we see ourselves as one of the vehicles that can be used to address this matter. We feel that Gizane Assessing Services is in a very good position to protect our customers when they can least afford to lose vehicles and balancing their budget.
