Advertorial feature : Weathering the storm – Autoglass® helps to keep fleets on the road with wet-weather solution

Autoglass® services thousands of fleet vehicles every year, saving businesses time and money by offering a fast 24/7 service designed to meet the complex needs of the fleet and lease sector.

90 per cent of the work carried out by Autoglass® occurs on the road – at a location convenient to the driver.
One of the biggest challenges faced by Autoglass® is how to manage a mobile service when faced with increasingly changeable weather conditions.

With the UK experiencing around 145 days of rainy weather each year,  the weather can have a huge effect on how managers assess cost, time and safety considerations. For fleet managers, each additional minute off the road means precious lost time and revenue.

Previously in wet weather Autoglass® offered customers the options of either taking their car in to a branch or a later appointment. 

Reducing fleet downtime therefore became a priority. With its continued focus on speed and quality of service Autoglass® looked at a wet-weather solution for its fleet partners.

The answer was the Vanbrella®. The innovative, yet simple solution provides expert technicians with a full covering, under which they can provide windscreen repair or replacement services. Designed by our in-house research and development technical department, fleet trials of the solution proved successful. The feedback from managers and technicians alike has now seen the canopy solution rolling out across the UK.

As the UK’s leading vehicle glass repair and replacement specialist, Autoglass® is committed to delivering a dedicated, efficient and hassle-free service for its fleet customers. Vanbrella® is just one of the innovative services Autoglass® offers its fleet partners, and demonstrates the company’s dedication to the market.

It forms part of the company’s heritage of vehicle glass repair and replacement innovation. From our exclusive quick-set resin to its lifetime guarantee, the company leads the way in creating practical and cost-effective solutions to keep fleets safely on the road.

Its UK-wide coverage of mobile technicians and large quantity of available stock enable Autoglass® to provide services exactly where and when it’s convenient for fleet drivers. This is instrumental in improving vehicle utilisation and reducing downtime.

The service from Autoglass® meets fleet requirements - whether there’s a smashed side glass which needs replacing late at night, or a chipped windscreen which needs to be repaired to avoid the cost of a replacement.

Now, with Vanbrella, Autoglass® is on hand to deliver unparalleled service, rain or shine. If you would like to discuss your fleet vehicle glass requirements and find out how our service can deliver real value for your business, contact the Commercial Sales team at Autoglass® by calling 01663 308 530 or visit www.autoglassbusiness.co.uk
