CD Fleet Services launches Inspect & Collect service for fleet industry

CD Fleet Services is partnering with specialist vehicle inspection company Gain Solutions to launch the new service. All vehicle inspections are carried out by experienced, ex-bodyshop managers and vehicle collection will then be completed within two hours of the inspection.

Inspection reports are uploaded through an online portal where they can be viewed instantly by the fleet or lease provider and the whole process will be managed through CD Fleet Service's robust and proven online platform.

"A key differentiator of CD Fleet Services Inspect & Collect is that we will be using only fully trained, ex-bodyshop staff and not drivers who have received some damage inspection training," said Andy Brown, managing director of CD Fleet Services.

"We recognise the importance of accurate inspections to the fleet and leasing industry. As a leading provider of online remarketing services, we have the experience and the technology to ensure Inspect & Collect is delivered to the quality required."

The new Inspect & Collect service has been trialled with contract hire and fleet management company, Venson Automotive Solutions Ltd, which has recently renewed its remarketing contract with CD Fleet Services after more than 12 years of working together.

Gary Curran, strategic supply manager at Venson, said: "The new Inspect & Collect Service, using fully-trained and experienced vehicle inspectors, was an important factor in our decision to renew with CD Fleet Services.

"We are now confident that we are getting accurate condition reports, which means we can make sensible, costed decisions on behalf of our clients and then get the vehicle quickly to market. The rapid integrated collection service means it's a one-stop shop for us."
