The meeting on 18 September will include a look at how the arrival of ADAS devices and other new technologies will affect inspections

Taking place on September 18 at the Derby offices of motor retail legal expert Geldards, the event will include a key presentation from Vipul Dave, sales manager at Thatcham Research, on how the arrival of ADAS devices and other new technologies is likely to affect the end-of-life inspection process, as well as potential solutions.

Alistair Horsburgh, CEO of CitNOW, will provide an overview of how the latest imaging technology can be used to make end-of-life inspections easier and more accurate from both the perspective of the customer and the collection company.

Also, Jonathan Butler of Geldards will take a look at the legal framework surrounding end-of-life inspections while a general overview of current new and used market trends will be provided by Derren Martin of Cap HPI, who will also take a look at how these areas are likely to develop over the next few months.

VRA chair Sam Watkins said: “The explosion in personal leasing in both new and used cars has made end-of-life inspections an increasingly important topic in the remarketing sector. Our members are very interested in any new thinking and new solutions.”
