When it comes to innovation you can trust the European marques to be first in line. Just this week Mercedes-Benz started practical trials for its electric heavy duty eActros trucks in Switzerland and Germany.
20 selected businesses will trial the trucks – in place of conventional diesel trucks – for one year.
The company has also just opened a $500 million manufacturing plant in South Carolina, to build the new 2019 version of the popular Sprinter commercial van.
The increasing demand for European commercial vans in Brisbane shows recognition by business owners that investing in quality is the key to success. Cheaper options may save a little upfront, but you’re likely to spend more on repairs, replacement and reduced re-sale value.
Commercial Van Service
Whatever make of vehicle you choose it’s important to book a regular commercial van service. Remember, it is not only subject to normal wear and tear but, as a commercial vehicle, it’s likely to carry a lot of weight and travel many kilometres.
You also need your commercial vehicle to be on the road, not in the workshop for extended periods of time. A regular check and service by a commercial van specialist will save you time and money.
It’s important to remember that servicing a commercial vehicle is a little different to servicing your car, so you need the right technician for the job. When it comes to commercial vans in Brisbane, you need SVS Autocare South Brisbane.
Log Book Servicing
For starters, this team loves large commercial vans and is set up to accommodate them. With a dedicated large vehicle and fleet servicing workshop in Woolloongabba, all the high-tech diagnostic equipment is ready and waiting.
The workshop can help with commercial van servicing and repairs, fleet management, air conditioning service and repairs, brake machining, wheel alignments and so much more. They will get you back on the road quickly and safely.
If you’re seeking a commercial van service for a new vehicle, remember that you don’t have to go back to the dealer. You may have been told that your warranty would become void if you went elsewhere for log book servicing but that’s untrue. It’s also illegal to claim that. Just as with a car, you can take your commercial vehicle to any authorised service workshop for a log book service.
To increase the lifespan of your commercial vehicle, there are some simple steps you can take:
- Only employ safe reliable drivers licensed to drive that type of vehicle
- Ensure drivers inform you immediately of any problems with the vehicle, or damage
- Ensure the vehicle is regularly checked and serviced by an authorised commercial vehicle workshop
- Maintain the vehicle between services by keeping it clean, checking fluid levels and tyres
- Store the vehicle undercover
- Ensure your commercial vehicle is properly insured
With a little care and attention, and the help of a qualified and experienced technician, your commercial vehicle will be on the road for many years to come.
