4 Reasons to Add a Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 to Your Shuttle Fleet
Whether you’re in the transportation business or simply need a shuttle to help your stakeholders get from point A to point B, you need the right fleet to succeed in your endeavors. As we’ve outlined in this space, everyone from colleges and universities to airport shuttles and nursing homes can use a Mercedes Sprinter to make themselves more attractive to their audiences.
But just what Sprinter should you choose? If you already know that Mercedes is the right way to go, how can you make sure that you actually get a model that will not let you down, regardless of the conditions? With a Mercedes Sprinter 4×4, you won’t even have to ask these questions. Instead, you’ll be well-prepared for every terrain, which can benefit your business and shuttle service in a variety of ways. Here are 4 of those benefits:
1) Keep Your Passengers Safe
Most importantly, driving around passengers for any purpose absolutely requires a van that can make sure they’ll remain safe. As a business owner and driver, you are liable for your audience, so you need a vehicle that minimizes risks for everyone involved.
The Sprinter 4×4 can give you just that. It doesn’t just come with all the regular safety features of Mercedes Vans, like Crosswind Assist and Lane Assist, but also with a powerful engine that helps you master all terrain.
2) Impress Your Audience
Of course, for the success of your business, the perception of safety is almost, if not just as important as the actual safety. If your passengers feel safe, they’ll be more likely to ride with you, and enjoy their ride in the process.
There is absolutely no doubt that the Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 immediately impresses your audience. In addition to the general brand appeal of Mercedes-Benz, getting the chance to ride in a 4×4 instead of a simple front-wheel engine simply makes your passengers feel more safe.
3) Don’t Let the Weather Keep You
Don’t you hate cancelling trips, or losing out on business, just because the weather turns? Especially in the Boston area, but through most of the United States in general, it’s an all-too-common experience. Before you know it, the next snowstorm is slated to hit your area, forcing you to readjust your plans.
Of course, we don’t advocate driving any vehicle in a snowstorm. That said, the Sprinter 4×4 can easily weather even the toughest terrain. Rain, snow, and ice will not keep it off the road, allowing you to make more permanent plans and keeping you from losing business or adjusting your plans just because of a little adverse conditions.
4) Appreciate the Versatility
Above all, a Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 in your fleet will make your business more versatile. Put simply, you won’t always need this powerful of an engine to accomplish your goals. But it’s good to have it in your back pocket for situations in which you (expectedly or unexpectedly) need it.
Say, for example, you own a funeral home that offers regular trips to the mall. On one of those trips, it begins to snow heavily after you’ve arrived. If you drove in a Sprinter 4×4, rather than being stuck, you can still navigate back home safely, thanks to the versatility of your vehicle.
In short, the Mercedes Sprinter 4×4, especially the passenger version, is an ideal fit for any business offering shuttle service. Thanks to its increase safety (and safety perception) and versatility, you can complete your trips at higher rates and with higher satisfaction.
Of course, you still need to find the right vehicle for your needs. And we’d love to help in that regard! Contact us today to learn about the options we have on our lot, and to schedule a test drive.
