We are proud to announce that from April 2022 VQS have entered a new long term arrangement with Ford of Britain for de-fleeting services of their Company Service Vehicles. Based out of Ford of Britain’s approved refurbishment location in Wyton, Cambridgeshire, vehicles will now receive a fully independent inspection and quality check process operated by Vehicle Quality Solutions Ltd.
Simon Jackson – VQS Managing Director is delighted with supplying services to Ford of Britain for the first time.
Simon stated “It’s vital that the Ford Direct Brand is maintained and strengthened with consistent high-quality product being retained by the Ford Dealer Network. Confidence and consistency is key as we actively support the Ford Direct Used Car and LCV offering”
Stephen Weston – VQS Operations Director added,
“We have a proven track record for providing manufacturer clients with independent inspection services. This arrangement will ensure Ford Direct product will enable Dealers to swiftly bring a premium product to the retail market space and pre-sale preparation requirements will be minimal.
“Independence is key to the integrity of our inspection service; we work closely alongside Ford of Britain’s refurbishment team, and our joint responsibility with maintaining the Ford Direct brand is clear and we look forward to ensuring the programme remains class leading.
Lee Mabbutt – VQS Business Development Manager concluded:
“The nearly new vehicle market has seen incredible flux over the last two years in terms of supply disruption and pricing instability. Whilst nearly new market activity will take a long time to return to pre-pandemic levels it is vital we do all we can to ensure the Ford of Britain Dealer network enjoy the benefits of this new arrangement”
