June 7, 2021
Vehicle maintenance is key to the healthy working and function of your vehicle. Whether you take a service package or choose to repair the vehicle and maintain its services yourself it is up to you. It is important to note that taking CUSTOMER MAINTAINED does not mean a cheaper vehicle to run as the maintenance package covers elements that the driver would of needed to purchase in-life anyway. Also the maintenance package is provided by a supplier that buys servicing, tyres, and breakdown cover in volume and so many savings get passed on to the vehicle contract. If you are medium to high user of a vehicle service packages often are a no-brainer in terms of not just price but also convenience and enjoyable motoring.
Maintenance Packages give peace of mind and allow the driver or company to focus on their core activity in confidence that the complications are covered for a regular and consistent monthly fee.
