Activa Contracts targets downtime with Nationwide Mobile Repairs’ partnership

Activa Contracts, Nationwide Mobile Repairs.

Cutting vehicle downtime is a key criteria for fleet decision-makers, which is one of the major reasons why Activa Contracts has partnered with Nationwide Mobile Repairs.

A part of Nationwide Accident Repair Services, Nationwide Mobile Repairs’ operates an 80-strong fleet of mobile repair units.

All repairs are completed within a single day at a location of the fleet decision-maker or driver’s choosing. Drivers can also send pictures of any damage they would like to be repaired via a mobile phone app and have a direct line to both Activa Contracts and Nationwide Mobile Repairs to advise on the best course of action.

Lisa Temperton, Activa Contracts’ sales and marketing director: “Some of our customers have previously used Smart repair firms for bumps and scratches and the work undertaken has not been of the required standard in accordance with our end-of-contract damage policy.

“As a result, a customer has incurred additional costs either as a result of an end-of-contract damage charge or has paid again to have the damage repaired prior to defleet.

“Neither of those situations are satisfactory to either Activa Contracts or our clients, which is another major reason why we have launched the new partnership with Nationwide Mobile Repairs.

“Having vehicles off-the-road is costly and business in-efficient so the new Nationwide Mobile Repairs’ service we are offering will be extremely beneficial to customers.”

Kevin Whitaker, head of mobile repairs at Nationwide Mobile Repairs, said: “The team of experienced technicians are fully trained on the latest repair methods and equipment at their disposal and are so confident in their quality that we offer a lifetime guarantee on all their repair work.”
