Like you, we understand that one white van isn’t the same as the next. With so many variations available, the van you choose should be closely matched to your profession. Here’s a short selection of some of the most popular Volkswagen vans we service and some snippets of what Volkswagen says about them.
What Volkswagen say about the Transporter:
“Volkswagen say that the versatility of the Transporter panel van is virtually unbeatable, and it offers high level cab comfort with many seating, heating, storage and entertainment features. The Transporter is available as a short wheelbase with a low or medium roof, or as a long wheelbase with a low, medium or high roof and the range consists of four gross vehicle weights, with payloads from approximately 800kg to 1,400kg and load compartment volumes ranging from 5.8m3 to 9.3m3. There are four TDI PD diesel engines to choose from (ranging from 84PS to 174PS) and the Volkswagen Transporter vans also benefit from unit injector technology that improves fuel economy.”
Main Dealer Service Vs National Van Servicing Network
When you choose your Volkswagen van also take into account the servicing costs. Did you know that you no longer have to accept main dealer van service prices?
In October 2003 European new legislation affecting the motor industry came into force called “Block Exemption Regulation” 14002002 (BER). The new law now allows everyone the freedom to service a van away from the main dealers, and still have their warranty protected.
This gives you the freedom to shop around and take advantage of national van servicing networks such as Service A Van, who will service your van according to the manufacturer’s service schedule, stamp your service book just as a main dealer can and could save you up to 50% off main dealer servicing costs.
As well as giving you access to cheap Volkswagen van servicing online, Service A Van will collect and deliver your van free of charge from home or work or virtually anywhere in the country, at a time to suit you. You might even be on a job and having your van collected and serviced at the same time.
