Customers of a BharatBenz truck or bus can get their vehicles fully checked and sanitised at the company’s service centers. Currently the campaign is active only in Kerala and Karnataka, but it will subsequently move to rest of India soon.
Daimler India Commercial Vehicles (DICV) has announced the launch of a new free vehicle check-up and sanitisation campaign for BharatBenz customers. Owners of any BharatBenz truck or bus can now have the condition of their vehicles fully checked at a BharatBenz service centre and get it sanitised for free. For trucks, the cabins will be sanitised, while the whole interior will be sanitised for buses. The workshops will perform all the 37-point standard checks, helping customers determine the condition of their vehicle, which might have been idle for a long period due to the nationwide lockdown, due to the coronavirus.
