Markerstudy and Vision work to help keyworkers
Insurance firm Markerstudy is working with Vision Vehicle Solutions to help keep the country’s critical workers and NHS volunteers mobile.
Credit hire and intervention hire company Vision Vehicle Solutions, which is part of the Markerstudy group, is providing replacement vehicles to fill the shortage of courtesy cars available due to Covid-19.
Gary Humphreys, group underwriting director at Markerstudy, explained: “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.”
The vehicles, part of Vision’s existing fleet of 600, are being supplied to customers free of charge, with all costs being covered by the two businesses, and are being backed by strict protocols to drivers on handwashing and sanitising as well as social distancing.
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.”
