A mobile mechanics business, which began trading just over a year ago, is celebrating after scoring highly in a chart drawn up by a comparison website.
Complete Vehicle Maintenance (CVM), based in Wilmslow, Cheshire, was the highest ranked in the county for new customers and tenth nationally in the table drawn up by WhoCanFixMyCar.com. The site was set up for customers to check quotes and feedback about garages in their local area and has around 7,500 garages listed on its portal.
If you are starting a mobile mechanics business, remember to ensure you have the right level of motor trade insurance to cover your tools and equipment. You will also require a good road risks insurance policy.
CVM was set up by sister company Fleet Complete to take servicing and repairs direct to customers. It has a team of mobile mechanics working across Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, Blackpool, Southport, Preston, Bury, Oldham, Crewe and Stoke-on-Trent. The business is expanding to add Lancaster, Morecambe and Barrow-in-Furness to the areas it covers. Fleet Complete, which offers servicing for fleet LCVs and minibuses, operates nationally.
CVM managing director, Jon Pinnington, said he was delighted the new company had scored so highly in the WhoCanFixMyCar.com assessment.
He said: "It's fantastic to receive this recognition – it shows we're doing exactly what we said we would do when we started. People compare different providers and choose us because we're mobile, we're convenient because we come to you, and we're more competitive on price because we don't have the overheads of a static garage.
"To be ranked number one in Cheshire and tenth in the whole of the UK is a great reward for our team. But we're not finished yet – we'll be looking to increase our national ranking as we increase our coverage in 2016."
