Kwik-Fit Fleet joins BVRLA war against the clockers

KWIK-Fit Fleet has declared war on clocking as the fleet industry fights back against the scourge of the UK motor industry. Britain's largest fast-fit company will give a massive boost to the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association's vehicle mileage database by supplying it with the registration and odometer reading of every one of the 750,000 company cars and vans it services annually.

The BVRLA's database, run by Vehicle Mileage Check, has already gathered end-of-contract mileage details on more than one million ex-fleet cars since it was established in 1995 as a powerful weapon in the battle to stamp out clocking. Kwik-Fit Fleet has now thrown down the gauntlet to other fleet suppliers which capture registration and mileage readings - from fast-fit groups, to fuel card companies and breakdown and recovery organisations - to copy its initiative.

Ron Bambra, managing director of Kwik-Fit Fleet, said: 'We are very pleased to be in a position to assist the BVRLA in its campaign against clocking. The data that Kwik-Fit Fleet will be transmitting has been collected for invoice purposes and it is a logical step to make this information available to help further the BVRLA's fight to clean up the resale of vehicles. I would call on all fleet service companies to look at the data they collect and if they have the required information to join us in helping the BVRLA in its campaign against clocking.'
