Autosafe develops service agreements with electric vehicle suppliers

Autosafe is currently developing service agreements with electric vehicle suppliers that do not have a nationwide network of service agents. They have recently appointed three members as service agents for Modec vehicles at Centerparcs, and has reached an agreement with electric vehicle dealer EV Stores to provide ongoing service facilities for business and private buyers, which includes cars, vans, scooters and bikes.

When electric vehicles are sold into a specific local area, Autosafe identifies its local members and invites them to undertake specific training provided by the manufacturer or distributor, to enable them to undertake all necessary service and repair work on an ongoing basis.

Autosafe marketing manager John Morton said: “Businesses in particular are looking to buy electric vehicles (EVs) to meet carbon emissions targets and save on fuel, but they need to know that they can keep their cars and vans in good working order easily.”

EV Stores’ Phil Retsas said: “With the recent Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) initiatives to promote EV's, particularly in the North East and Milton Keynes, we anticipate that the sale of electrics will accelerate across the UK.

“Autosafe's independent dealer network will provide EV Stores and its customers with the high level of after sales support that they rightly expect, enabling us to sell outside the London area.”
