Extended driveline warranty part of Temsa five-year ops lease

Extended driveline warranty support from WMS Group will form a key part of a five-year operating lease package offer on new Temsa coaches from Temsa Sales UK.

WMS Group will provide insurance-based driveline coverage in years three, four and five to complement the manufacturer’s warranty. It will also handle any associated administration services aligned with claims against its package.

The five-year operating lease model will be available on the MD9 and HD12 (pictured) and it will apply to any further vehicles that Temsa offers here. Regional Sales Manager – UK, Ireland and Malta Paul Gardner notes that coupling such a package to driveline warranty coverage throughout will provide “peace of mind” to customers.

Mr Gardner adds: “By partnering with WMS to offer this standout extended driveline warranty, we are able to provide a highly desirable and much needed lease package to our customers.

“Post-COVID-19, we are seeing new and emerging coach and bus operators starting out. By offering this outstanding product, they will be embarking on their journey knowing that their vehicles are protected for longer and that any expensive repairs and maintenance costs will be covered, allowing them to invest further in growing their businesses.”

Temsa International Sales Manager Aykan Cavlak adds that the Turkish manufacturer “has not reached the pinnacle” of its aspiration for the UK market. “We made it our purpose to address the fundamental aspects of a reliable commercial vehicle business early on, and WMS co-operation was one of these targeted actions that has been nurtured for a while.”

WMS Group Head of Commercial Vehicle Sales Mark Bobbins comments: “Our expertise across coach and bus, HGV and LCV is unrivalled and is only strengthened by the proven and outstanding level of customer service for which we are renowned.

“We are looking forward to embarking on this new and advanced partnership with Temsa and are excited to see what the future holds.”
