Membership add-on will put EV-trained garages ahead of the pack
Servicesure is launching a revolutionary new add-on service for its members to help them take advantage of the growing EV opportunities in the aftermarket.
EVsure will be available to Servicesure members who have at least one technician qualified to the IMI’s L3 Techsafe standard, which enables them to work safely on EVs.
Members who become EVsure garages will have access to a range of benefits including national branding and promotion, discounted technical advice and equipment, and exclusive training and development.
Head of Garage Programmes Paul Dineen said: “We believe EVsure is going to be a gamechanger for the aftermarket. Main dealers have held a monopoly on EV maintenance and repair for too long, and it’s all too common to see them overcharging consumers.
“With the volume of EVs entering the aftermarket now rapidly increasing, it’s imperative for independent garages to prepare and adapt to this huge growth market.
“There’s also some lost ground to catch up on with PHEVs, which is another market main dealers have dominated for more than a decade.
“EVsure will enable our Servicesure members to directly compete with main dealers by offering a qualified, trusted and good value alternative.”
Following a soft launch in December, EVsure is now ready to roll out across the UK, with 12 Servicesure members already signed up and good to go.
“The appetite to become an EVsure garage was there straight away with many of our Servicesure members, because these are professional and progressive garage owners who see the importance of the aftermarket becoming a key part of the world of EVs here and now,” said Paul.
“We also anticipate the prospect of becoming an EVsure garage will be an attractive proposition for potential new Servicesure members, so this is a real string to our bow for the Servicesure package.”
