Launched by Derek Cook, the former chairman and chief executive of dealership group DC Cook, Yorkshire-based Motor Solutions claims to save drivers money on servicing, repairs, parts and tyres.
Motor Solutions forms partnerships with customer facing brands such as retail chains, supermarkets, financial service companies and other motoring related organisations. Drivers then pay to join a discount club, which is branded in the partner's name and run on their behalf by Motor Solutions.
The Fleet Discount Club has been set up to provide the same services on a generic basis for smaller partners or those who do not wish to have their own club.
Motor Solutions offers a range of products including discounted new and used cars, a nationwide booking service, independent mechanical advice, accident management, discounted parts, service, repairs, tyres, exhausts and windscreens. The services will be available across a 3,000-strong independent and franchised dealer network.
Cook said that the company has already met its target of getting 20,000 partners on board by the end of April 2002 and hopes to increase this figure to 100,000 by the end of April 2003.
