If you are looking to build a fleet of commercial vehicles for your business or looking to add to an existing one, then you know there are plenty of options for the trucks and vans you are looking for. It seems that most major automakers produce commercial grade vehicles that will suit your basic business purposes. The folks at General Motors understand this and appreciate that you, as a business owner, will have special needs that are different from people looking to buy cars, trucks, and vans for personal use. This is where GMC Business Elite comes into play.
GMC launched a program back in 1993 designed to provide business customers with the best sales and service experience from the sale of a vehicle or vehicles through the lifecycle of the vehicles purchased. In this way, your GMC or Chevy dealer will partner with you to help you with your vehicle needs to give you peace of mind, and the competitive advantage to better grow your business. While there are many dealers who can sell or lease you a diesel truck or cargo van for your business, most look upon the deal as done as soon as you drive your vehicles off the lot.
This is not the case with dealers enrolled in the GMC Business Elite, who see this as a long-term relationship. They will keep you fully updated on all the benefits offered by GMC Business Elite, including priority service at priority hours, round-the-clock towing, loaner vehicles, specialized financing and lease options, and hassle-free disposal at the end of your commercial vehicle’s life. GMC Business Elite applies to a broad range of vehicles, including chassis cabs, GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickup trucks, and cargo, passenger, and cutaway vans. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the GMC Business Elite program and the benefits that it offers to you and your company.
GMC Business Elite Benefits
When you step inside a GMC Business Elite dealer, you are sure to notice the difference immediately. That is because these dealers have trained staff that is not only knowledgeable about the commercial grade vehicles on sale at the GMC dealership, they are also experienced at customizing the vehicles to the unique needs of your business. The staff will also learn about the challenges of your specific business so that the program can best serve you. This dealer account specialist will get to know you so that your representative will be ready to serve you each time you stop by the dealership, already knowing the objectives and unique challenges of your company. The goal is to create a Professional Grade partnership between the GMC Business Elite dealership and your business.
Becoming a member of the GMC Business Elite program opens you up to a world of great benefits. For example, Business Choice Offers is designed to provide you with the trucks and vans for your work, as well as accessories and upfit packages to better serve you. Accessories can include such items as ladder racks, trailer hitches, and floor mats on GMC Savana Vans. Bedliners, toolboxes, and tow hooks are also perfect accessories for GMC Canyon and Sierra pickup trucks.
There are also some upfits that will better help your specific business. For example, if you are in the snow plowing business, you can get snow plows for your GMC Sierra trucks. Upfits on GMC Savana Cargo Vans include interior racks and bins, partitions, bulkheads, and vocational equipment. You can get a utility, high cube, or wrecker body on your GMC Savana Cutaway Van, depending on the needs of your business. Your GMC Business Elite dealer account specialist will be happy to assist you in finding the vehicles, accessories, and upfits that will serve your business best.
GMC Business Elite dealers understand that maintenance and servicing issues can and will arise from time to time with respect to your commercial vehicles. That is why GMC Business Elite dealers offer extended parts and service hours to their commercial customers outside of the usual 9 to 5 workday. You will also get priority service, so you won’t lose too much downtime waiting for your van or truck to be repaired. As a GMC Business Elite customer, you will also be eligible for available work-ready loaner vehicles so you and your crew can get back on the job without missing a beat.
GMC Pro Grade Protection Offers You Real Peace of Mind
One of the biggest benefits of GMC Business Elite is GMC Pro Grade Protection. This specialized warranty and maintenance program will offer you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your GMC dealer stands behind your commercial vehicles, so you can use them as you require for your business.
During the first two years or 24,000 miles of your truck or van, you will receive two maintenance visits with included maintenance. This means that the dealer will provide you with oil and filter changes and a multi-point vehicle inspection free of charge. You will also receive four-wheel tire rotations as needed on all of your single axle vehicles. This routine maintenance will help you better maintain your commercial trucks and vans during their first two years, which should result in longer vehicle life and better overall performance for each of your commercial vehicles.
Pro Grade Protection also includes two great additional warranties. The first is a 3-year or 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty on each of your commercial vehicles under the GMC Pro Grade Protection program. The second is a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty that covers the engine and transmission of your truck or van. This powertrain warranty extends to 5-years or 100,000 miles on HD diesel pickups.
Included with the 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty is 24-hour Roadside Assistance with courtesy transportation and round-the-clock towing. So, if your GMC commercial vehicle experiences a problem with its powertrain out in the field during the term of the warranty, your GMC Business Elite dealer will arrange for the towing of your vehicle and will transport you where you need to go. This also extends to the 5-year or 100,000-mile range for HD diesel pickups.
