Kwik-Fit Fleet makes debut at CV Show
Although the firm is best known in the van world as a tyre supplier, at the 2011 CV Show it will be turning the spotlight on vehicle servicing and MoT work and its range of related mechanical services.
Kwik-Fit Fleet sales director Peter Lambert said: 'The CV Show is the shop window for commercial vehicle operators particularly for vehicle maintenance and repair.
'The company is well established as a leading provider of tyres for commercial vehicles but what maybe less well known is that we now offer a wide range of services at very competitive prices to help fleet managers run an efficient and cost effective transport operation.'
Those services extend to offering all-makes vehicle servicing and MoTs with business demand boosted by the continuing roll-out of a nationwide van collection and delivery service and the recruitment of Master Technicians.
Additionally, Kwik-Fit Fleet will be using the CV Show to highlight its focus on duty of care compliance with, for example, British Gas, which operates some 11,000 vans, being one of the leading users of its tyre safety check service.
Lambert said: 'Kwik-Fit may have been launched as a supplier of tyres, batteries and exhausts but today the company is a one-stop shop for all van service, maintenance and repair requirements.
'Fleet decision-makers and company van drivers have increasingly turned to Kwik-Fit for a number of reasons – cost savings, flexibility as a result of longer opening hours linked to a business culture of long hours working and the availability of 'come to you' mobile tyre repair and replacement through our mobile offering.
'By attending the CV Show for the first time we will be promoting our comprehensive portfolio of products to potentially thousands of transport managers who may not be familiar with the breadth of services now available from Kwik-Fit.'
