Special promotion geared to vehicle uptime

As part of its operator promotion for the 2011 coach season, Volvo will run a special service offer designed to ensure new Volvo coaches continue to operate at peak performance.

All new Volvo retail coaches ordered from November 1 and delivered prior to July 2011 will receive a free annual inspection and test for 2 years.

“The checks, inspection and testing will be completed by skilled Volvo technicians at our authorised Volvo Truck and Bus workshops,” explained Ian Downie, Volvo Bus UK Product Director.

“With around 100 conveniently located Volvo Truck and Bus workshops throughout the UK and Eire, there is one close to most operators,” he added.

In the first year, key elements of the annual service included in the offer covers the following items:- preparation for annual inspection, completion of all warranty work, presentation for annual inspection test by Volvo dealer and top end check.

For the second year, all the elements of the first year annual check are carried out along with additional elements including tachograph inspection and a system functional test.

In the event of any non warranty repairs being required, these will be subject to a price agreed with the dealer.

“Maximising coach operational time is essential for all operators and this special promotion for the 2011 Coach season is very much geared with that in mind. At Volvo we are looking to help our customers every step of the way and ensure their new coaches are consistently at the peak of their operational capability,” added Ian Downie.
