Cheshire-based Thomas Hardie Used Trucks has become the latest retailer to offer ‘Volvo Selected’ trucks; as the unprecedented and now prestigious warranty has been awarded to several units from its premium range. Many other units have also been bestowed Volvo’s mid-range warranty ‘Volvo Approved’; a status awarded to trucks of ‘very good’ quality as per Volvo’s notoriously strict standards.
The Volvo warranties, introduced in early March, are a market-leading move from the Swedish marque; a sign of the confidence that it clearly holds in the quality of its second-hand vehicles.
Jonathan Bownes, Sales Manager from Thomas Hardie Used Trucks said, “It’s outstanding that Volvo has awarded so many of our units with the ‘Volvo Selected’ or the ‘Volvo Approved’ warranties. This tip of the hat from Volvo certifies the top quality of our offering, helping to bolster the confidence that our customers have in our products. Volvo is acknowledging that our vehicles are in top condition, ready to deliver a trusted service for many years to come.”
‘Volvo Selected’ sees trucks of the highest quality awarded a 24-month Driveline Warranty (or up to 360,000km mileage from the date or purchase) covering owners against failures and repairs. These units undergo a 200-point inspection check to ensure they meet Volvo’s strict standards; and several of them are ready to be snapped up at Thomas Hardie Used Trucks’ supersite in Middlewich.
A ‘Volvo Approved’ used truck has been identified by Volvo as being of ‘very good quality’. These units come with a 12-month Volvo Driveline Warranty, and as with the 24-month guarantee, this is included in the price of the truck. There is also a ‘Volvo Economy’ warranty which will cover a used truck for 30 days from the day of purchase.
These warranties, together with Volvo’s comprehensive inspection and pre-delivery preparation, mean that any buyer will have made a safe choice when opting to purchase a used vehicle.
