Accident Exchange grows dealership loan car availability by a fifth

Drift Bridge Group renews third two-year accident management contract

Surrey-based VW and Audi dealer group, Drift Bridge, has increased the capacity of its bodyshop courtesy fleet by a fifth since utilising Accident Exchange’s onward mobility provisions.

For the past four years, Accident Exchange has supplied customers of Drift Bridge Volkswagen, Epsom Audi and Walton Audi with an equivalent vehicle should they be involved in a non-fault accident, freeing Drift Bridge’s own loan car fleet for other requirements.

The success of the partnership has resulted in a third new two-year contract, set to continue until at least May 2017.

Accident Exchange has been the sole supplier of onward mobility to Drift Bridge customers since the business made the decision to offer accident management services in 2011.

Philip Cue, Managing Director of Drift Bridge Group commented:

“For customers involved in non-fault accidents, having access to Accident Exchange’s fleet reduces the pressure on our loan cars while their car is with us for repairs.

“Overall we have seen loan car availability increase by 20% which helps to ensure that our bodyshop loan car fleet runs efficiently and that our customers are kept on the move, even at the busiest times.
