Scania is offering its retail owner and fleet customer base a maintenance package aimed at easing cashflow burdens during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Businesses who might be "tempted" to delay servicing or repairs are able to access short-term Scania Easy Pay funding.

The program provides approved customers with short-term finance from $3,000 to $50,000 for servicing or repairs at Scania’s nine company-owned branches or participating 60-dealer network Australia-wide.

"We understand completely that some businesses are being negatively impacted by lockdowns and other effects of the pandemic, and this may interfere with the positive cashflow position of healthy, active and sustainable businesses," Scania Finance Australia national sales manager Wayne Thomason says.

"Ultimately, our promise to our customers is that while we’re here for you in good times, we’ll step up to the plate during the challenging times.

"With Scania Easy Pay we are recognising that times are tough for many operators in Australia. This is mostly through no fault of their own.

"They also need to maintain their commitment to their customers by delivering for them on time, and without the inconvenience and stress of unplanned breakdowns interrupting their business."

Scania also recently rolled out an older truck service offer

Scania Australia national director of aftersales Patrik Tharna says the Scania Easy Pay initiative will also benefit regional and rural dealers maintain throughput in their workshops.

"Additionally, we are supporting our dealer network around Australia, providing them with a means by which they can accept an increased flow of service and repair work into their workshops from customers who have viable businesses, but who are temporarily short of cash."

A credit approval process will apply to all applications which must be accompanied by an official quote from a Scania branch or participating authorised dealer.

Scania aims to turn around the approval within 24-hours of receiving a completed application.

The funding results in Scania taking an equity stake in the vehicle or on another unencumbered asset.

"The funding period can be taken between 12 and 24 months and there’s a facility for a four-month grace period before repayments begin to help customers get over the worst of the pandemic," Thomason says.

"We’re providing the funding at existing commercial rates as well. We also anticipate interest from Scania operators who may not yet be SFA customers."

The offer applies until September 30, 2020, and to Scania trucks registered from 2007 onwards.
