Mercedes-Benz has rebranded its used truck offering with every Mercedes-Benz Certified used truck undergoing a multipoint inspection at Mercedes’ Wentworth Park.

Every truck on the Certified programme undergoes an intensive inspection by Wentworth Park technicians will all trucks on offer less than five-and-a-half years old or having covered no more than 550,000 km.

Other requirements of the Certified trucks include not being due a service for at least 20,000km and the tyres having a tread depth of no less than 6mm.

Vehicle will also not require an MoT for five months and the manufacturer’s warranty will be valid for a minimum of 12 months.

Enhanced cover for the driveline and full vehicle will also be available on all Certified trucks with Extend and ExtendPlus options.

“We understand that it’s not easy to find the right used truck,” said Tom Morris, head of used trucks.

“That’s why we created Certified. Offering confidence by the truckload, it’s nothing less than a personal guarantee that a vehicle has been meticulously prepared by a truly passionate team of Mercedes-Benz truck specialists.  If a truck hasn’t been through our dedicated facility, which is home to a unique concentration of inspection, maintenance, testing and tooling capabilities, then it hasn’t been Certified.”

Morris added: “I’m not so naïve as to think that the unprecedented demand for pre-owned vehicles we’re seeing at the moment, is going to last. It won’t. However, Mercedes-Benz Certified has not been designed to take advantage of a short-term phenomenon. Rather, it’s about sustainability and longevity. By managing the route to market for the very best used vehicles, we will underpin the premium values and future success of the entire Mercedes-Benz Trucks business here in the UK.”

Mercedes-Benz Trucks will be exhibiting at Road Transport Expo at NAEC Stoneleigh (30 June to 2 July). Register now for FREE
