Why every part counts

The things that make Mercedes-Benz Vans the right choice for your fleet, are the same things that make Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts the right choice for your vans. Like quality, reliability, and long-term value. Which is hardly surprising, because they’re made by the very same people.

Designed and manufactured to the highest Mercedes-Benz standards, Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts are fully guaranteed for 24 months. And that’s not all.

When the parts are fitted in an approved Mercedes-Benz workshop by manufacturer-trained technicians, you also benefit from a 12-month labour warranty. There’s a whole network of these workshops, and Mercedes-Benz Authorised Dealers, across the country. Together, they offer a whole range of ways to help keep your fleet and your business moving.

GenuineParts when you need them
If there’s one thing more frustrating for a Fleet Manager than a van off the road, it’s a van off the road for longer than it should be, simply because parts are unavailable. But with Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts, you can be sure of always getting the right parts at the right price, at the right time.

There’s £30 million worth of stock kept in the Mercedes-Benz UK parts warehouse, so 94% of Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts are available within 24 hours – including for vehicles up to 10 years old. You can check availability online with the Mercedes-Benz Electronic Parts Catalogue, and you can order parts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, using the WebParts portal. (As a time-saving shortcut when you re-order, all previous online orders are saved.)

There’s also a highly knowledgeable, highly professional Parts team available with help and advice if you need it.

When you’ve got the parts, you want them fitted. But you also want to keep your fleet on the road during normal working hours. So Mercedes-Benz Dealer workshops are open to maintain your vans without disrupting your working day. Over a third are open 24 hours a day, and over 90% operate at least two shifts daily – which means workshops are open on average nearly 100 hours a week.

Another route to reliability
An alternative to Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts are Remanufactured GenuineParts – which offer the same benefits plus impressive cost savings.

Backed by the same warranties as GenuineParts, ReManufactured GenuineParts offer savings of up to 67% when you exchange the original unit. Yet you can still expect the same new GenuineParts quality, because the remanufactured parts face the same rigorous Mercedes-Benz testing.

There are remanufactured mechanical components, fuel injection and after-treatment parts, electric and electronic parts, engines and transmissions available for Mercedes-Benz vans of all ages – all guaranteed to fit first time, to save you time in the workshop.

With genuine reliability and genuine savings to be made with Mercedes-Benz GenuineParts and ReManufactured GenuineParts, it makes real sense to maintain your fleet with the real thing. After all, as well as maintaining your vans, you’ll be maintaining the impressive fuel economy, lower whole life costs and higher residual values that made your Mercedes-Benz vans such a good choice in the first place.
