Markerstudy, in partnership with Vision Vehicle Solutions, is stepping in to help keep the country’s critical workers and NHS volunteers on the move.
Credit hire and intervention hire company Vision Vehicle Solutions has pledged their support to parent company Markerstudy, by providing replacement vehicles to Markerstudy policyholders from their existing fleet of 600 to fill the shortage of courtesy cars available due to COVID-19.
Gary Humphreys, Group Underwriting Director at Markerstudy, said: “Placing the needs of our customers first is top priority, and, to coin a phrase, together we’re stronger. The impact of lengthier repair times caused by deliveries of parts being delayed means that courtesy cars are being loaned for longer periods, causing a blockage in the supply chain. We’ve quickly found a solution to this problem and we’re proud to be in a position to help our customers during these challenging times.”
Martin Wills, Managing Director of Vision, said: “We’ve achieved a simple, effective and hassle-free service for Markerstudy policyholders. It’s a great accomplishment and shows what we can do as an industry when we all work together.”
Markerstudy and Vision are offering this solution free of charge, with all costs being covered by the two businesses.
Vision is alerted to the requirement of a vehicle, and will contact the policyholder to arrange either delivery direct or to the repairing garage for collection. Vision has communicated strict protocols to their drivers for handwashing and sanitising, and they’re applying social distancing measures to ensure employee and customer safety.
