We have created CARE because we understand that SL owners all share the same desire – to ensure their prized vehicle continues to be a joy to use for any occasion; with the reassurance that its value will increase over time.
Moreover, owners want access to the very best service and advice, and to be inspired to use these cars in the way Mercedes-Benz originally intended.
CARE from SLSHOP is a certified service and maintenance membership plan, designed to make life with your classic Mercedes-Benz SL easier and more enjoyable.
Through a long-term relationship with our CARE Consultants, your SL will be cared for by our expert team of passionate enthusiasts who know and understand you, your SL and your ownership journey.
More than just a service plan, CARE gives you access to a range of exclusive discounts and services, as well as priority place on our trips, tours and experiences. With a fixed monthly payment, you can be sure your SL is in good hands, giving you the inspiration to see more, do more and drive more.
What are the benefits of a CARE account?
Free to join, our easy to open CARE account gives you immediate access to a raft of benefits, including discounts on labour, parts, Insurance and transportation. CARE also guarantees you a courtesy car when your SL is in our workshops. Alongside these benefits, CARE members are the first to hear about our events, with the first access to booking slots. There is no cost to becoming a CARE member, and we understand that every car and every owner is different… Simply establish a monthly payment with SLSHOP to begin your membership.
How does a CARE account work?
Members of our CARE program pay a monthly fee into a maintenance pot allocated to their account. This can be used for routine servicing, cosmetic improvement, ongoing renovation work or any other ambitions you have for your SL.
This easy to manage maintenance package helps you budget for the annual servicing and maintenance of your classic SL.
An example of CARE in action:
Mr Smith pays £65 per month into a CARE plan for his 280SL.
In year one, the car visits SLSHOP for an annual service, an A Service. No extra works are required on the day, so there is no bill to pay – a small surplus remains on the account.
In year two, the car has another annual service, this time just an oil and filter change. With the extra funds that are building up on the account, Mr Smith invests in a replacement chrome decklic escutcheon, as his is damaged from years of use.
In year three, the car is due a major service, but once again, with the funds available in the account, there is no bill to pay.
