Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles launches enhanced online service plans 

17th October 2019

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has launched a suite of enhanced online service plans in response to demands from businesses to offer more online facilities, and packages which save them money and improve convenience.

The volkswagen-vans.co.uk website – which has been named What Van? Website of the Year three years in a row – has been upgraded with a new fixed-price service plan offering now available for vans up to seven years old with unlimited mileage.

The packages will help save owners and fleet managers money in the long term and protect against inflation. For more information or to purchase a service plan, click here: https://www.volkswagen-vans.co.uk/en/offers-finance/service-plans.html

The brand is encouraging drivers to shop online to get the best price for their servicing and avoid the expense of a van being off the road. Downtime costs fleets an average of £550 a day per van.

The service plans, now available at the click of a button with the option to spread the cost over monthly payments, have been added alongside an extended Live Chat function as part of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ continued comprehensive online offering to support customers throughout their buying and ownership journey.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles first introduced Live Chat in 2017 and industry figures now show 42% of consumers prefer online chat functions because they don't have to wait on hold while it’s also ranked as the most satisfactory contact point when compared with phone, social media and e-mail.

“Our Service Plans, which always use genuine parts to keep your vehicle in the best condition, are designed to help you avoid unexpected servicing bills, keep you on the road and protect you from inflation,” Head of Service & Parts David Hanna said. “You can pay for the Service Plan upfront and save money in the long run while our monthly payments ensure customers can easily account for it in their budget.

“Through our Working With You promise, we’re committed to providing our drivers with a reliable and stress-free ownership experience and these Service Plans help take the hassle out of maintenance and allow you to concentrate on running your business.”
