In a recent Fleet News poll, 50% of fleets said they were considering bringing fleet management back in house. This makes financial sense, but fleet managers still need solutions in place for accident repairs. This is where a professionally managed bodyshop network should come into your fleet management plans.
With over 85 authorised repair centres and already providing repair services for some of the UK’s largest fleets, Selsia Vehicle Accident Centres delivers a professional accident repair service right across the UK for any size of fleet and with all types of vehicles. Selsia offers a central point of contact first notice of loss service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and out of hours recovery.
As well as safe, quality repairs from PAS 125 and vehicle manufacturer approved repairers, the network offers insurance liaison, engineering services, central billing, on
line vehicle tracking and full management information so that fleet managers can control repair costs. If there are particular requirements, such as including insurers in the claims process, where decals should be sourced or where repair authority comes from, Selsia will prepare a detailed service level agreement, a summary of which is sent to its repairers with each accident instruction. This means a consistent level of repair service, including repair rates, right across the UK as well as improved communication of the fleet’s particular needs. Selsia works in conjunction with the
fleet management team to ensure that vehicles are available and back in service in the shortest possible time.
Selsia Marketing Director, Neil Marcus commented “At Selsia, our core task is to manage the process of repairing vehicles and getting them back in service as
quickly as possible. We do not pass these costs onto our clients, which in some instances, could save fleets up to 20% in their repair costs. The job of liaising with bodyshops up and down the country is taken care of by Selsia, allowing fleet management departments to focus on the day to day issues of managing a fleet of vehicles”.
