Churchill Expert joins forces with Charg.gy for fleet insurance

Plugging in electric car

Direct Line Group’s fleet insurance specialist, Churchill Expert, has partnered with Char.gy to provide insurance for its fleet of electric vehicles (EVs).

Char.gy is a community charging company that focuses on providing lamp post and bollard charge points that enable councils, businesses and parking providers to offer an easy to access EV charging amenity to their residents and drivers.

Nicola Richmond, head of Churchill Expert Flexible Fleet Partnerships, said: “Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, but many drivers are still understandably frustrated with the lack of available charging points.

“Our partnership with Char.gy is a great opportunity for our business to help solve these issues and encourage more people to drive an electric vehicle, particularly in light of recent Government environmental policies.

“We are excited to be arranging fleet insurance for Char.gy and look forward to growing this partnership in the future.”

Richard Stobart, CEO of Char.gy, said: “Driving an electric vehicle without having off-street parking is still a common challenge for those looking to make the shift.

“We are continuously looking to evolve so that we roll out Char.gy to all corners of the UK, because our form of charging is crucial for squeezing out the greatest possible carbon saving benefits from the UK’s switch to electric vehicles.

“We are therefore excited to announce that Churchill Expert is supporting us on this journey, and we look forward to working with its team to rapidly improve access to EVs and charging points.”
