Mercedes-Benz ‘Service on Wheels’ Truck

Mercedes-Benz India has expanded its range  customer service offerings. Called ‘Service on Wheels’, the new initiative comprises a service truck that comes equipped with all the tools along with professional service personnel to attend to customer cars, especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, where Mercedes-Benz doesn’t have a direct presence.

On being notified, one of the many mobile service trucks will visit the customer’s area and carry out the inspection, repairs and service of the car. This initiative is part of Mercedes-Benz’s service differentiation strategy under the ‘My Mercedes, My Service’ umbrella, which was launched in July 2016.
