Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched an ‘all-inclusive’ aftercare plan to support customers with vans aged between three and six years.
The package, named ‘All-in from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ offers two services, two years’ Roadside Assistance, two MOTs, and two years of Warranty included.
The package is paid for either by 24 monthly instalments (£34.97 per month) or as a one-off payment (£839.30), giving businesses the ability to plan their finances in advance.
Compared with pay-as-you-go pricing, Volkswagen says All-in provides considerable value and significant savings of on average £1,558 over two years, while also offering the facility to book services and MOTs for a single visit to minimise vehicle downtime.
Starting with a free eligibility check by a technician, the offering comprises one major and one minor service (including a full inspection), two MOT tests (excluding remedial work), year-round Roadside Assistance, and a Warranty. The Roadside Assistance is effective in the UK and Europe, and covers drivers for, if required, repatriation, alternative travel and hotel accommodation for the driver and up to seven passengers if needed. All work is completed by Volkswagen Trained Technicians, using only Volkswagen Genuine Parts and diagnostic equipment.
Vehicles aged between three to six years are eligible, meaning that the support could be effective until the van is eight years old, depending on the vehicle’s age when the policy takes effect. Exemptions to the programme are electric vehicles, vans with over 100,000 miles on the clock and those with engines more than 2.0 litres in capacity.
David Hanna, head of aftersales for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “All-in is a unique offering and one that we hope will provide our customers – whether fleet managers, sole traders, or small business owners – with complete peace-of-mind when it comes to vehicle maintenance. The option of monthly payments enables owners to plan their finances ahead of time, allowing them more time to focus on their day-to-day work. As part of our Working With You promise, All-in will help vans stay on the road longer, minimising costly downtime for customers.”
