Owners and operators of older Scania trucks have been encouraged to visit one of the commercial vehicle manufacturer's workshops for a health check.
A special lube service will be included as part of the new Scania Prime program announced today in which Scania Australia aims to reach out to 10,000 Scania trucks currently in service that are five years old or older and not operating under one of its maintenance contracts.
Scania National Aftersales Manager, Patrik Tharna said the company trained technicians had the know-how and tools to ensure the older trucks remained in prime condition using genuine Scania replacement and service parts.
“In the current environment where trucking is deemed an essential service and where on-time deliveries are more crucial than ever, operators and drivers cannot afford to suffer unplanned stoppages," he said.
“The Scania Prime concept will be good news for all of our old Scania friends. We’re starting with an offer of a lube service and health check for just $379 inclusive of GST,” said Tharna.
The Scania Prime lube offer includes Scania LDF3 synthetic lubricant replacement, new Scania oil filter and a multi-point vehicle health check.
In addition, the vehicle operator also receives a 20 per cent discount voucher for fitted genuine parts and labour carried out by Scania’s company-owned workshops around Australia on a future visit.
Tharna said with many operators presently worried about their business continuity, it was the perfect time for Scania to offer owners and operators of its older vehicles the opportunity for an affordable lube service and health check.
“It’s our way of showing how we continue to care for all Scania family members throughout their long working lives. Scanias enjoy very long working lives as a result of our legendary durability and reliability," he said.
“We want to maintain all Scanias in prime condition. The Scania Prime lube service is just the first of a range of services aimed at older trucks that we plan to roll out in the near future.”
