Valvoline, a vehicle care service provider, is changing its service expansion strategy to provide preventive maintenance for all vehicle types, including RVs and motorhomes.
Valvoline said it has taken the same service model used for light-duty passenger vehicle customers at its Valvoline Instant Oil Change service centers and adapted those proprietary processes specifically for Class 5-8 vehicles that can weigh more than 30,000 pounds at its first company-owned heavy-duty fleet service center in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Valvoline recognizes there is a need in the market to serve owners of mixed fleets with a tried-and-true service experience adapted from nearly 40 years of hands-on expertise at Valvoline Instant Oil Change,” Valvoline CEO Sam Mitchell said. “This heavy-duty fleet service center is one additional step in Valvoline’s commitment to evolve its service strategy to provide the right solutions for owners of all types of vehicles now and in the future.”
The Valvoline Heavy-Duty Fleet Services center’s trained technicians perform preventive maintenance services, including oil and filter changes; critical component checks including battery replacement, transmission and differential service; and Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections.
According to Valvoline, services are completed in 75 minutes or less, significantly faster than conventional repair shops, where service times can often exceed 24 hours or more.
