Free Winter Check for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
With harsh winds, floods and icy conditions, Volkswagen has taken it upon themselves to protect their commercial vehicle customers. The 29-point Express Visual Check (EVC) is a test which aims to ensure that their popular CVs are able to withstand the rigours of the colder weather set to batter the United Kingdom over the next few months.
Every year companies report an increase of national roadside assistance call outs, usually caused by poorly maintained vehicles. Last year, with an unexpected early cold snap, thousands of motorists were left driving in unsafe, slippery conditions without the proper care taken with their vans. With this service, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK customers will be entitled to exterior light and wiper checks, oil and water top-ups, tyre maintenance and a battery check.
Costing just £25 (excl. VAT), the customer is also entitled to a Genuine Accessories Winter Care Pack retailing at more than £30 and a Castrol ‘Long Life III one-litre check-it kit’ full of winter-specific motor accessories like de-icer, a scraper and super-concentrated screen wash. In some locations, apart from all these goodies customers will be also be offered a warm drink in a complimentary thermal mug.
A preventative measure, with a hope to minimise accidents on the roads this Christmas, this winter service will be undertaken at participating Volkswagen Van Centres throughout the UK until 28th February 2015.
