Hassle-free operation for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has come of age. Twenty one years ago when it made its debut, it was the first van to be fitted as standard with disc brakes on both front and rear wheels, as well as with the ABS anti-lock braking system.
Fast forward to 2016 and the van synonymous with an entire segment has done it again with yet another industry-first. Now standard with every newly purchased Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, the CharterWayService BestBasic 5-year/105 000km service plan assists operators to concentrate on their business’ core requirements, by offering guaranteed vehicle availability and reduced administration.

This an industry-first from Mercedes- Benz and, according to the company, not having to pay for a service gives operators complete peace of mind when buying a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and allows them to concentrate fully on their bread-and-butter business.
“The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a market leader in its segment owing to its high levels of safety, impressively economical engines and unsurpassed innovations.
With the CharterWay Service BestBasic 5-year/105 000 km service plan, we are ensuring it remains in the lead,” says Nicolette Lambrechts, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans, southern Africa.
Lambrechts continues: “Our current Mercedes-Benz Sprinter range offers unmatched reliability and perfect driving features. This is a vehicle that is everything to everyone who purchases it: exceptional safety, impressive low fuel consumption, respected reliability and recognised resale value.
“exceptional safety, impressive low fuel consumption, respected reliability and recognised resale value…”
These are just some of the key factors that contribute to the Sprinter being the most dominant player in the large van segment.” Despite the engines on offer in South Africa adhering to Euro 5 emissions standards – owing to the unavailability of appropriate fuel – the Sprinter still boasts operating the cleanest engine in the large van segment. “But it is not just thanks to its frugal fuel consumption that our Sprinter van is top of the class in the large vans segment.
It also sets standards in safety as it is loaded with various assistance systems such as Collision Prevention Assist, Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist,” says Lambrechts. “We are confident that the indomitable Sprinter will continue to cement its market leadership position in the large vans segment. It is a fantastic product that enjoys good support in the market.”
As an all-inclusive service plan package, the CharterWay Service BestBasic plan covers all items prescribed by the Mercedes-Benz service schedule for the stipulated mileage and/or period of the contract.
