Vehicle Quality Solutions appoints Peter Freestone as Operations Manager
Vehicle Quality Solutions Ltd. (VQS) has appointed Peter Freestone as its new Operations Manager that sees Peter assume overall responsibility of VQS’ field-based and end-of-lease inspections.

Reporting into Operations Director, Steve Weston, Peter will manage all 50 of VQS’ inspectors, the UK’s largest independent vehicle inspection provider, who are either permanently based at de-fleet centres, or operate remotely across the country, as required.

Bringing nearly 20 years’ experience to the role, Peter will also manage VQS’ industry-leading, IMI-approved vehicle inspection training programme at Bruntingthorpe and the subsequent recruitment of field-based inspectors into the VQS network.

This will help to maintain the exceptionally high-quality of VQS’ vehicle inspections – of which 250,000 are carried out annually – for rental and leasing companies, dealer groups and manufacturers, including recently-renewed contracts with FCA Group and Network Q.

Developed in-house, VQS’ tablet-based vehicle inspection technology provides full transparency of a vehicle’s condition at the end of a contract, generating repair estimates and charges in real-time.

“I’m thrilled to be taking up this position at VQS at such an exciting time. With a rising number of blue-chip contracts, I’m looking forward to helping maintain VQS’ position as the leading independent inspection provider in the field,” comments Peter.

“We’re delighted to be able to welcome Peter into the team. His wide-ranging vehicle inspection and management experience, particularly in the OEM sector, will undoubtedly help VQS’ growth in this area, continuing to set the industry standard for end-of-contract inspections,” adds Managing Director, Simon Jackson.
