Autoglass has been appointed as the preferred supplier for glass repairs and replacements to Hertz UK.
The partnership will position Autoglass as the first point of call for all vehicle glass repair and replacement services to the entire Hertz UK fleet.
It was confirmed as the preferred supplier following a competitive tender process, during which it impressed with a commitment to significantly reduce vehicle downtime and the provision of a one-stop-shop solution for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This model allows Autoglass to perform ADAS recalibration at a designated Hertz location or one of the 70 centres operated by Autoglass around the UK.
In addition to the reduction in vehicle downtime, the decision made by Hertz to select Autoglass was linked to several other components in the tender response, including access to the business support team who centrally manage the day-to-day requirements, providing greater consistency, appointment tracking and improved communication.
Jeremy Rochfort, national sales manager at Autoglass, said: “It’s great to have started the year on such a positive note with a company as established and respected as Hertz.
“Securing this primary supplier contract is testament to the market leading service provided by our team. We are confident that this is the just starting point for yet another year of success for Autoglass.”
Richard Davies, general manager of Hertz UK, added: “With a fleet as vast and diverse as ours, it is of the utmost importance that vehicle downtime is minimised.
“The significant reduction in vehicle downtime offered by Autoglass was a prominent factor in our decision to select them as our primary supplier for vehicle glass.”
