VOLKSWAGEN has announced a host of summer offers for LCV drivers and for the first time is offering free servicing on all models purchased with finance from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Financial Services until October 1.
Two free services are provided with all Caddy, Transporter and Amarok models, including Transporter-based derivatives such as the Caravelle people carrier and California campervan.
The offer includes one interim and one full service, which can cover customers across two years and 20,000 miles of routine servicing.
The new Crafter van is also being made available with the offer of four free services (two interim and two full giving up to four years/40,000 miles cover), building on the vehicle's two free service launch offer announced earlier this year.
With vehicle downtime remaining one of the most frustrating elements of fleet management for van users, planning and scheduling a service in advance can drastically improve operations.
When a service plan is in place, VW customers will receive automatic reminders, giving them one less thing to worry about in their businesses. It also means budgets can be managed effectively.
For drivers looking to purchase a used Volkswagen van on finance between now and October 1, two services for £99 (plus VAT) are available.
Another service provided free of charge with VW's contract hire or finance lease contract is access to Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Financial Services' Driveline programme.
This is a 24-hour phone line, available 365 days a year, which provides instant help and assistance in, for example, booking services, ordering new tyres, arranging glass repairs or providing breakdown and recovery services.
