Mobile repair service to “substantially” cut fleet downtime

Vehicle downtime costs fleets more than £7k a year according to RAC research, yet a new solution is on hand.


Selsia has launched a nationwide, centrally managed mobile repair service.

With RAC research finding that 41% of firms that run commercial vehicles suffer vehicles off the road at least twice a month due to breakdowns, Selsia has launched a nationwide, centrally managed mobile repair service for cars, vans and heavy commercial vehicles.

To highlight how the service can save fleets time and money, Selsia will be present at this week’s Fleet Show to talk visitors through the solution’s on-site, menu-priced bodywork repairs for small area damage to cars and vans. Users also benefit from 24/7 reporting and repair deployment, triage services, online repair management and fixed menu priced repairs for car and van bodywork.

For any repairs that cannot be dealt with by the mobile service, Selsia will automatically redeploy the job to one of its 170 approved, fixed site repairers.

Central invoicing and online repair management of repairs is also included in the service as with all of Selsia’s work.

Selsia’s marketing director, Neil Marcus, said: “Our objective at Selsia is to minimise vehicle loss of use for our clients. With Mobile Services, we have adapted our internal call handling systems and appointed the most professional repairers with whom we will centrally manage this important new service. Carrying out repairs at our customers’ depots and other locations will substantially reduce vehicle loss of use.”Meet the industry’s biggest suppliers, network and attend a packed seminar session, and experience the latest cars and vans at the Fleet Show, held at Silverstone.
