Volkswagen’s Mobile Service Clinics prevent downtime for healthcare fleets

Healthcare fleets are keeping their vans on the road and supporting the coronavirus response effort with the help of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles’ Mobile Service Clinics.

Cordwallis Group has visited several key customers to keep vans on the road

This includes the Alliance Healthcare fleet – one of the leading distributors and wholesalers of pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products in the UK – which is being supported in its work by mobile services from Cordwallis Group.

As well as running its Van Centres across London and Thames Valley area, Cordwallis Group operates three Mobile Service Clinic vans and is using them to visit key customers.

Technicians have attended to more than 20 vans from the Alliance Healthcare fleet over the past week, including non-Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles products, to prevent downtime.

Air Liquide, which runs a fleet delivering oxygen to patients at home, is also keeping its fleet operational with the help of the Cordwallis Group mobile vans.

The Mobile Service Clinic is on standby to support other key customers, carrying out service work, inspections, repairs and software updates from the specially converted Volkswagen Crafters while operating in line with government guidelines.

If the issue cannot be resolved at the roadside, Cordwallis Group is also running an emergency fast-track workshop service to get the vehicle delivered back to the customer as quickly as possible; again while working in line with coronavirus protocols.

Rob Zubovic, managing director at Cordwallis Group, said: “We are delighted we are able to support some of our loyal and long-term fleet customers during this difficult period as part of our Working With You promise.

“The Mobile Service Clinics are the perfect way to keep some of these vital services moving without the need to take them off the road for long periods of time.”
