Valvoline Expands Service Strategy to Include Heavy-Duty Vehicles

Valvoline Adds Heavy-Duty Vehicles to Service Strategy

The company has opened its first heavy-duty fleet service center in Kentucky.

Valvoline Inc. announced today that it has opened its first company-owned heavy-duty fleet service center. The same service model used for light-duty passenger vehicle customers at its Valvoline Instant Oil Change service centers and proprietary processes have been adapted specifically for Class 5-8 vehicles that can weigh more than 30,000 pounds. 

The company says this marks another major step in Valvoline’s overall service expansion strategy to provide quick and trusted preventive maintenance for all vehicle types: light-duty, medium-duty, heavy-duty, electric vehicles (EV), hybrid and diesel. Heavy-duty mixed fleets include large delivery trucks, dump trucks, concrete trucks, fire trucks, buses and RV/motor coaches. It’s estimated the annual opportunity for fleet outsourced maintenance of heavy-duty vehicles (Class 5-8) in the U.S. exceeds $8 billion.

“Valvoline recognizes there is a need in the market to serve owners of mixed fleets with a tried-and-true service experience adapted from nearly 40 years of hands-on expertise at Valvoline Instant Oil Change,” said Valvoline CEO Sam Mitchell. “This heavy-duty fleet service center is one additional step in Valvoline’s commitment to evolve its service strategy to provide the right solutions for owners of all types of vehicles now and in the future.”

The Valvoline Heavy-Duty Fleet Services center’s highly trained technicians perform preventive maintenance services, including oil and filter changes; critical component checks including battery replacement, transmission and differential service; and Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections. Services are completed in 75 minutes or less, which the company says is significantly faster than conventional repair shops and truck dealerships where service times can often exceed 24 hours or more. The service center also offers the convenience of pre-scheduled drop-off or while-you-wait appointments and maintains continuous end-to-end communication with fleet managers.

The heavy-duty fleet service center is located at 990 Enterprise Drive in Lexington, Kentucky. 

Lexington is also the location of Valvoline’s world headquarters. Appointments can be made online. Learn more about Valvoline heavy-duty fleet services at vioc.com/vhdlexington.
