Mercedes-Benz has revamped its approved used van offering.
The Mercedes-Benz Approved Used range of vans are all now available up to six years old, with a maximum mileage of 150,000 miles.
The vans come with a full service history and have to meet a multi-point pre-sale check to qualify, with outstanding finance, theft and insurance write-off checked.
‘Approved used’ vans come with a 12-month MOT, 12-month insurance-based ‘wear and tear’ warranty (which can be extended), and are serviced as required if there is less than 5,000 miles to the next service.
The corrosion warranty is renewed and there is a minimum of 5mm tyre tread depth remaining, as well as the vehicle benefitting from a full valet.
All ‘approved used’ vans can benefit from a £500 finance deposit contribution, and currently selected ‘approved used’ 14-plate Citans are now available from £29 per week with a £500 deposit contribution*.
MobiloVan, free UK and Europe-wide roadside assistance is also reactivated, which gives drivers up to 30 years roadside assistance from date of registration.
Mick Glover, head of vehicle remarketing at Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “We understand that our customers want to enjoy the benefits of owning a Mercedes-Benz van, and it is our job to ensure they are in the right vehicle for their requirements and budget.
“We have redeveloped our 'approved used' criteria to better serve the needs of van operators – it is very clear exactly what standards all of our Approved Used vans now adhere to, and enables customers to have a broader spectrum of vehicles that could better suit their needs.
“We are extremely proud of our award-winning vehicle offering, and with our unwavering focus on keeping our customers on the road with solutions like free MobiloVan roadside assistance, Genuine Parts, and an out-of-hours UK-wide Dealer Network, we are proving ourselves once again as the commercial partner of choice, not just another van manufacturer.”
