Fleets ‘paying over the odds’ for accident repair, says Selsia

Many UK fleet operators are paying for overhead costs they don’t need when they use traditional management organisations to control their accidents repairs.

That’s the view of Selsia Vehicle Accident Centres, which will be exhibiting at Fleet Management Live at the NEC, in Birmingham, on October 6 and 7.

The company will be demonstrating how national fleets can enjoy high levels of accident repair services without having to pay a premium price.

Selsia’s approach to repair management involves the coordination of more than 130 suppliers and thousands of personnel, all working towards getting fleet clients’ vehicles back on the road at a reduced cost.

Neil Marcus, Selsia’s marketing director, said: “In our experience, we have discovered that it isn’t necessary to employ hundreds of people with all the overhead costs this entails because we would have had to pass these costs onto our customers.

“What we do at Selsia is professionally coordinate external experts in such a way that our clients get exactly the same repair results without having to pay a premium for the privilege.

“On a day to day level, what this means for our fleet clients is that we have already approved the best repairers, we use our national scale and buying power to get the best possible rates and we remove the hassle of chasing repairs which allows our clients to focus on their other duties.

“Moreover, all information relating to accident repairs can easily be found online and in one place.”

Organised by Fleet News, Fleet Management Live is a new forum for suppliers, manufacturers, service providers and fleet decision-makers.

It’s the definitive event for key company car decision-makers, whether they are traditional fleet operator or non-fleet managers in procurement, finance, HR, travel and facilities management.

Visitors will have a chance to talk with Selsia on stand B52 to discover how their roles can be professionally supported by outsourcing their fleets’ accident repair management requirements.
