Nationwide announce plans to launch a new mobile service

Nationwide Accident Repair Services plc has announced that it is extending its services to provide automotive body and glass repairs on driveways and car-parks across the UK.

These new mobile services are designed to support Nationwide's repair centres plus the accident management services provided to businesses.

With insurance excess on the rise, fleet managers are becoming far less likely to go to their insurer for minor damage. The specially trained Mobile Restore engineers can handle repairs which can be completed in a day and consist of up to two panels.

For businesses and fleet operators, Nationwide's mobile solutions can dramatically reduce vehicle off road time and administration.

"One of the main benefits of our mobile services at Nationwide is that we have the back-up of the 71 body-shops." Explained Gary Nicholls, operation director - Mobile at Nationwide. "Unlike other unsupported mobile repair businesses where there is no physical body-shop back-up, an engineer may be tempted to repair damage that really is unsuitable for handling on a driveway. We've seen the result of these repairs, and our customers have the benefit of knowing they are being honestly advised and fairly treated. We are unbiased and professional - so if we think that a repair needs to go into a centre we will let the customer know, and arrange all the logistics - with minimum inconvenience and fuss."
