Kwik Fit will be exhibiting at the Commercial Vehicle Show as the van sector continues to grow.
In recent years, Kwik Fit has increased its penetration of the light van sector notably as a result of extending its reach into the vehicle servicing and MoT segment as well as building on its long-established reputation as a major provider of traditional fast-fit services.
This year’s Commercial Vehicle Show is once again being held at the NEC in Birmingham, from April 26-28.
Kwik Fit fleet director Peter Lambert said: “The Commercial Vehicle Show is the shop window for commercial vehicle operators and at the event four years ago Kwik Fit launched its improved service to light commercial vehicle fleets, small business, sole traders and the retail market.
“Since then demand for Kwik Fit’s light commercial vehicle tyre fitting proposition and expanded range of mechanical services has increased significantly, particularly as the number of vans on the UK’s roads continues to rise rapidly.
“The Show continues to provide a major focus for Kwik Fit to promote its comprehensive range of services to the sector, to secure new business opportunities and to network with existing customers.”
The original network of 20 Kwik Fit Plus centres is gradually being increased as Kwik Fit parent company Itochu Corporation recognises that more fleets and small businesses are using the centres for light commercial vehicle service, maintenance and repair jobs notably to keep vehicle downtime to a minimum by taking advantage of outlets’ seven-day-a-week opening as well as price competitiveness.
Lambert added: “The increasing volume of mechanical work being undertaken at Kwik Fit is from both leasing companies and outright purchase fleets.
“Fleet manager and driver confidence in Kwik Fit’s ability to undertake mechanical work on vehicles in addition to traditional fast-fit work continues to grow rapidly and we expect that trend to continue.”
