Scania is refreshing its approach to used truck marketing with the launch of Scania Direct, a new nationwide initiative designed to help operators source and acquire used Scania vehicles in the most convenient and simple manner possible.
By providing a single point of access to the entire UK Scania dealer network's used vehicle stock, Scania Direct offers the widest choice of quality pre-owned Scania trucks available on the market today.
"Scania Direct involves every member of the Scania UK dealer network and places the customer at the heart of our used vehicle operations by making vehicles of the specification and type they require easily accessible no matter where they are located," says Tony Tomsett, Used Vehicle Sales Director for Scania (Great Britain) Limited. "Moreover, the service can be used in whichever way suits the customer best. So if an operator sees a vehicle on Scania Direct they would like to inspect, they can either visit the dealership at which it is held, or we can arrange for the vehicle to be brought closer to them.
"Our Used Truck sales force will also use the system to source vehicles for their customers. As the country's largest re-marketer of used Scania vehicles, the likelihood of finding the correct vehicle within our network is extremely high, so the single access point provided by Scania Direct will speed up and simplify the process from their point-of-view as well."
As all used trucks supplied by Scania dealers have previously been maintained within the Scania network, Scania Direct also provides a full service history for every vehicle sold.
In order to provide the highest levels of customer support, Scania Direct also encompasses a wide range of associated services, including vehicle financing options, tailored repair and maintenance plans and, in the case of all 2011 and later vehicles, complimentary access to Scania's entry-level telematics service, Monitor.
The full range of services provided by Scania Direct can be accessed via a dedicated telephone number 08081 640640; by email: firstname.lastname@example.org; online at www.scania.co.uk/used by contacting the Used Sales department at any Scania UK dealership or by visiting the Scania UK Used Truck Showroom in Warrington, which showcases a constantly changing selection of premium used vehicles and the services which support them all under one roof.
