ClickMechanic has announced a partnership agreement with Road Runner, a specialist motor trade insurance company.
Through this alliance, the online marketplace car repair company will offer mechanics access to Road Runner’s trade insurance policies, with additional discounts available to ClickMechanic.
ClickMechanic aims to offer its members support and access to the right resources needed to grow their businesses. This initiative is described as another step in the right direction, at making various aspects of running an auto repair business easier for mechanics.
The partnership will aim to benefit mechanics and independent garages on ClickMechanic’s network in a number of ways. It will provide them with access to a discount with Road Runner and additionally, mechanics will have access to a portal for rapid policy and vehicle management facilities.
Road Runner’s mechanic customers will also be able to join ClickMechanic’s network of mechanics for free and will also have their applications fast-tracked.
Andrew Jervis, Co-Founder of ClickMechanic, said: “After what has been a tumultuous year for all, we are truly excited to offer the benefits of this agreement to the mechanics on our network. Supporting the UK’s mechanics is at the very core of ClickMechanic’s principles and we hope to see this partnership help mechanics grow their business.”
Louise Velez, Head of Road Runner, added: “We’re really pleased to be partnering with ClickMechanic to enhance our offering for mechanics. After a difficult 12 months for mechanics, we believe this partnership will play a small part in helping them get back on their feet through the discount and deals available. We want to show the industry that at Road Runner, we’re with you.”
