Mercedes Benz is offering peace-of-mind and value for money for its customers through a new, inflation-proof servicing programme.
Service Care from Mercedes Benz is a cost-effective and hassle-free budgeting plan that provides owners with a convenient way of covering their future servicing requirements from £22.50 per month.
The programme has been developed to deliver flexible and affordable plans for customers to have their car serviced at a Mercedes Benz Official Workshop. The Service Care plan is an integral part of the Mercedes Benz national pricing structure. It provides the option of covering future servicing by either spreading the cost into a fixed monthly amount, or as a one-off, up-front payment. The plan has the added advantage of being transferable when the car is sold on, providing it has been paid for up-front.
Comprehensive in its cover, and taking care of all manufacturer-recommended service items such as brake fluid, spark plugs and filters, Service Care offers total simplicity as far as management and payment of the plan is concerned. Service Care plans can cover either the next two or three services over a length of time to suit the customer, according to how long the customer intends to keep the vehicle, and what their anticipated annual mileage is.
Service Care also provides owners with the added comfort that their car is being looked after by expert Mercedes Benz Official Workshop technicians.
"By opting for a Service Care plan, our customers can enjoy the reassurance that their car is being worked on by manufacturer-trained technicians using genuine parts and approved lubricants," said Angela Shepherd, Customer Services Director. "A full Mercedes Benz service history also demonstrates to a future buyer that they have chosen to take the very best care of their car and may enhance its future value."
She added: "In addition to this peace-of-mind, owners taking out a Service Care plan can relax safe in the knowledge that they are protected against inflation, so if the cost of parts, oil or labour should increase in the future, the price of their servicing will remain the same, throughout the life of their plan."
Service Care is available at all Mercedes Benz Official Workshops, on a wide range of models aged up to seven years old. Models covered by the scheme are the Mercedes Benz A-Class, B-Class, CLC-Class, C-Class, SLK-Class, CLK-Class, E-Class, CLS-Class and M-Class. AMG models excluded.Published 15 March 2010
