Volkswagen van drivers across the UK will be better placed to budget for their vehicle maintenance in future, as VW announce plans to standardise service costs across the nation.
In a move that will please most van drivers, Volkswagen have decided to introduce fixed pricing for interim and full service plans for their commercial vehicles at their van centres across the country. This will allow small businesses to incorporate costs into their business plans for the year very much like they would with their commercial vehicle insurance.
The price structure is already in place; the VW Caddy ranges from £89 interim to £199 for full. The T4 starts at £89 with the full service costing £229. The T5 interim service starts at £139 with the full costing £249. The LT full service is also £249 but the interim starts from £89. The crafter completes the range with interim costing £139 and full being £229. None of the prices include VAT and VW van drivers have until March 2011 to take advantage of the offer.
The offer will prove a big hit with van drivers knowing that they will be getting VW parts with the accompanying 2 year warranty fitted by VW mechanics. A spokesman for Volkswagen said “Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is finally shattering any perception that it costs more to service a van at its Van Centres by the introduction of a national service pricing offer.”
