Coronavirus impact: BMW India announces special service for doctors
BMW has announced a special after-sale service for doctors who own a BMW, Mini Cooper or a BMW Motorrad bike as a gesture of appreciation for working round the clock and fighting the Coronavirus pandemic at front lines. The company will provide complementary engine oil service at its dealership service centres across the country for the doctors who are risking their lives during such unprecedented times.
Doctors can register themselves at 'www.bmw-contactless.in' to avail the service. The complimentary service can be redeemed with 90 days after the lockdown is lifted. Vehicles with engine oil service due as per condition based service will be eligible to redeem the complimentary service. And those who already hold BMW or Mini service inclusive package or warranty extension will be offered free sanitisation instead of engine oil service.
The company has already announced an online sales and service portal for a contactless experience after the lockdown is lifted. This enables the customers to browse through the fleet of BMW cars and get it delivered at the doorstep while being indoors. The online service strengthens the social distancing initiative taken by the government to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The company has already pledged Rs 3 crore to fight the Coronavirus pandemic and the carmaker is also providing medical facilities, personal protection equipment (PPE) for front-line medical personnel and law enforcement agencies along with providing nutrition for economically marginalised families around Chennai and Delhi NCR.
Arlindo Teixeira, acting president at BMW Group India, said, "Earlier this month, BMW Group India pledged its contribution to fight COVID-19 through its various CSR initiatives and by providing critical care equipment and services for medical facilities in Delhi NCR and Chennai. Doctors have been tirelessly working every day to ensure public health and safety. Complimentary engine oil service is a small gesture of appreciation from us and our dealer partners, for the selfless service of our patrons from the medical fraternity. It's a JOY for us and our dealer partners to take care of their BMW, MINI cars and BMW Motorrad bikes during these unprecedented times."
