A maintenance package from Van Sales UK and Autoserve takes care of everything for you, ensuring that your van is always in top condition.
Read on to find out more about the maintenance package we offer.
What Does A Maintenance Package Offer?
It is essential that you regularly maintain your tyres. Tyres are a very important part of vehicle safety and will be covered by maintenance contracts. Once the depth of the tyres becomes worn to 2mm or less or if the tyre gets a puncture, they will be repaired or replaced for no charge. We will always use premium branded tyres to ensure safety and endurance.
However, you should check whether your package covers sidewall damage or winter tyres as this is not always included in the maintenance package.
Servicing, Maintenance, Repair & MOT Tests
A huge benefit of taking out a maintenance contract with Van Sales UK and Autoserve, is that the vehicle’s servicing, maintenance and MOT testing costs will be covered, for the duration of the contract.
All you have to do is contact us to let us know when your vehicle’s service is due and we’ll sort the rest. You’ll find this information in the vehicle manufacturers guidelines, in your vehicle’s log book or simply when the vehicle service light appears. We’ll even find your closest approved garage and book the appointment for you.
As part of the vehicle’s service, the maintenance contract should cover the following:
- Checking the engine oil and refilling
- Brake pads and discs
- Fuel, oil, air and pollen filters
- Spark plugs
- Topping up Adblue
- Checking and topping up fluids such as brake fluid, engine coolant and windscreen washer fluid
- General servicing vehicle checks including testing the battery, checking the suspension system and tyres
- Resetting the service light
Warranty Claim Bookings
Another great reason for having a maintenance contract is warranty claim bookings. For the duration of the maintenance contract, if your vehicle develops any faults which fall under the vehicle’s warranty you can easily be booked into your nearest dealership and have your vehicle inspected.
24-Hour Driver Helpline
Getting stranded is everyone’s worst nightmare. So it’s reassuring to know that no matter what happens, help is always available through the 24-hour driver helpline. Even if your vehicle simply starts making a strange noise or if you have a general question you can call the helpline for advice.
Staff who man these helplines are trained in customer service and are usually professionally qualified to respond to any queries you might have. They will also have access to a computer system that can find motor manufacturer information and uses technical trade databases to diagnose issues with all the different makes and models of vehicles available on UK roads.
What Will A Maintenance Package Offer If I Break Down?
One of the most important features of a maintenance package is breakdown cover. This is particularly important for businesses that rely on vans to transport goods and equipment. A van breakdown cover ensures that if the worst happens, the vehicle will be back on the road as soon as possible, minimising disruption to the business.
Van Sales UK supplies new vans which come with manufacturers breakdown cover for the first 12 months, but after this point the maintenance package cover is beneficial.
Van Sales UK’s maintenance package partners with Autoserve. We will supply you with breakdown assistance, no matter where your vehicle breaks down in the UK. You’ll simply just need to call and they will arrange for a reputable breakdown company, like the AA, to attend to the vehicle at any point during the day or week, 24/7.
Van breakdown cover will send out breakdown vans, recovery trucks and other specialist vehicles to ensure that whatever problem is causing the breakdown can be fixed. While the main aim is to fix your vehicle by the roadside, if this is not possible it will be towed to the nearest approved garage within a 10-mile radius.
What Happens If I Have An Accident?
It’s the nature of the business that, unfortunately, accidents do happen. A good quality accident management service should cover both fault and non-fault accidents with full year-round cover. That’s 24/7, 365 days a year to ensure you are always protected.
Accident Management Service
If you are in an accident, you should call the accident management service. They will arrange for your vehicle to be recovered and taken to an approved garage for damage review and repair. If your van needs to be repaired, you will be provided with a like-for-like courtesy van, free of cost. They will also contact your insurance company for you and settle any legal claims that may arise.

Why Should I Invest In A Maintenance Package?
Investing in a van leasing maintenance package comes with many benefits, but perhaps one of the most crucial is a maintenance package. A maintenance package is a service that provides customers with peace of mind that their vehicle is being properly cared for.
Here are some reasons why you should consider investing in a maintenance package.

A maintenance package from Van Sales UK can save you money in the long run. When you buy or lease a vehicle, you are responsible for its upkeep, which can be costly, especially if there are major repairs needed. With a maintenance package, you don’t have to worry about these expenses as they are covered by the leasing company. Additionally, regular maintenance can help prevent costly repairs down the road.
A maintenance package ensures that your van is taken care of by professionals, giving you peace of mind that your vehicle is in good hands. They have the necessary tools, equipment, and expertise to identify and fix any issues your van may have.

All you have to do is drop off your vehicle at the leasing company’s service centre and let them take care of everything.
Tailored to Your Needs
Maintenance packages are tailored to your needs, so you only pay for the services you require. Leasing companies offer different packages that vary in coverage, from basic services like oil changes and tire rotations to more comprehensive packages that cover major repairs and breakdowns.
Peace of Mind
Lastly, a maintenance package gives you peace of mind that your vehicle is in good condition.
