JCT600 has extended its Accident Exchange partnership for a further three years following a reported 34% increase in bodyshop revenue.
Alongside the 34% year-on-year growth in bodyshop revenue during 2017, it has seen a 26% rise in the provision of replacement vehicles to customers in the last year alone.
JCT600’s financial analyst Sam Tordoff said: “As a retailer of some of the most respected brands in the world, we know how important trust is to a business and that rings true with our business partners as well.
“Whether securing leads, alleviating pressure on our bodyshops or directly supporting our customers – Accident Exchange not only excels but does so as an extension of the team.
"That trust is invaluable and is why our partnership will extend to 15 years with the new contract.”
As part of the programme, Accident Exchange created a series of reciprocal partnerships with local bodyshops to ensure that all not-at-fault work is managed, whether by JCT600 or an approved partner, to deliver a mutually beneficial referral system.
Accident Exchange’s director of sales and operations Scott Hamilton-Cooper said: “Continuing our long-term partnership with such a well-respected brand is a case-study of how businesses can work closely alongside one another to great effect.
“Having worked with JCT600 for over a decade, we’re proud to be an extension of the team; working as part of the brand, rather than on its behalf. That approach has reaped rewards for both of us, with positive, tangible results throughout the business.”
