The used van sales event from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Das WeltAuto, is back again. Up until June 30 2016, customers will receive a £750 deposit contribution on used vehicles acquired on hire purchase among a number of other special offers.
Das WeltAuto (German for ‘the world car’) has been running at Volkswagen’s 72-strong Van Centres since 2010. It aims to provide customers extra peace of mind thanks to the comprehensive warranty and breakdown cover plus recovery service that are included as part of the deal.
Vehicles that are aged under three years old come with a minimum of 12 months Volkswagen warranty and roadside assistance, but this is reduced to six months for vehicles aged over three years.
Only used vans up to six years old and with up to 100,000 miles on the clock qualify for the Das WeltAuto programme, although it applies to vans of all makes and models. There is also a 142-point check carried out by VW technicians before each vehicle goes on sale to ensure they are mechanically sound; any defective parts are replaced by genuine VW parts.
Deposit contribution and low finance
Up until June 30 2016, Volkswagen is also offering a £750 deposit contribution towards hire purchase agreements with a minimum balance of £1,500. The interest rates go up to 9.9 percent APR, although there is a minimum customer initial deposit of 20 percent of the invoice price.
Two services from £99
If a vehicle is acquired during the campaign period, customers can also purchase their next two consecutive services for just £99. This is the same price for all four of VW’s commercial vehicles (the Volkswagen Caddy, Volkswagen Transporter, Volkswagen Amarok and Volkswagen Crafter), although it is restricted to vehicles up to four years old and with less than 80,000 miles on the clock.
