GM Offering Standard Maintenance to Fleet Buyers
Industry-first business choice program includes oil changes and more
DETROIT – General Motors Fleet and Commercial Sales announced today that the GM Business Choice program, designed specifically for business customers, now includes an industry-first two-year, 30,000-mile Business Maintenance Plan, in addition to a cash allowance for vehicle accessories or upfits.
GM is the first automaker to offer a maintenance plan alongside cash incentives that may be used with any upfitter. The GM Business Choice maintenance plan, which covers lube, oil and filter changes; tire rotation; and a 27-point inspection, is now available to Business Choice customers. Eligible vehicles include: cargo, passenger and cutaway vans, chassis cabs, 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups and the Chevrolet Avalanche.
“Our customers told us how important a maintenance plan is to them, so we listened and redesigned the Business Choice program to meet their needs as part of our commitment to providing the best possible customer experience,” said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales.
“We’ve done a lot to raise the bar at GM Fleet and Commercial, and this is one example of how we are continuing to alter the way we do business to further nurture our partnerships with our customers and be their preferred choice,” Peper said.
The new Business Choice program has been revamped for ease of use by dealers and customers. Customers will now receive a GM Accessory cash allowance or an upfit cash allowance, depending on the vehicle and the customers’ needs.
Small business customers who purchase more than one vehicle for work-related purposes may be eligible for the program. To find out if your vehicle purchase will be eligible, please contact your Chevrolet or GMC dealer. The updated Business Choice program will complement the all-new Business Elite dealer program.
