Volvo is launching a new mobile valeting service for Volvo owners with Volvo on Call, booking a clean car through a new App.
In what Volvo say is a first in Europe, they’re launching a new mobile car cleaning and valeting offering in conjunction with GoWashMyCar, using an App to book a car clean or valet wherever, and whenever, you want.
The current caveat is that to use the service and the App you’ll have to have a Volvo with Volvo on Call, and you’ll have to download the new App too. Oh, and for now, you’ll have to be inside the M25.
The package on offer includes a free car health check – tyre pressures, tread depth, coolant check, screenwash top-up and visual bodywork check – although it looks like prices are the same as using GoWashMyCar direct.
That means a basic clean will cost you from £22 and a mini valet from £39, which isn’t exactly as cheap as chips, but the convenience may be the decider for many, especially as the Volvo on Call gubbins will give the carwash bod one-time access to unlock and re-lock your car so you don’t even need to be there.
Mike Johnstone, Volvo’s Strategy man, said:
Working with the expert team at GoWashMyCar, we have designed this new service to be hassle-free for our customers and to provide them the kind of premium-quality valeting their car deserves. It is another example of how we can use the technology and peace-of-mind security of Volvo On Call to make life easier
