Kia partners with Verex

Kia Motors (UK) Ltd has appointed Verex to operate its customer Motor Insurance programme and a new Accident AfterCare scheme.

Both programmes, launched in Q1 of this year form part of a new Kia strategy to increase deployments of Kia vehicles to its approved bodyshop network, increase accident parts sales and improve customer retention.

Each new or ‘approved’ used Kia issued with seven day insurance also receives one year’s Excess Return. The policy returns the first £250 of any excess a customer pays following a claim, provided their vehicle is repaired in a Kia approved bodyshop.

The motor insurance policy is underwritten by Allianz Insurance plc, and provides customers with the guarantee of a repair at a Kia approved bodyshop, using Kia Genuine Parts.

Kevin Todd, national service and quality manager, Kia Motors said, ‘We’re delighted to be partnering with Verex and Allianz. They are very experienced in delivering programmes dedicated to vehicle manufacturer customers. Their uniquely integrated insurance and accident aftercare programme is 100% aligned with our requirements and the Kia dealer network. We look forward to being able to offer our customers a truly Kia branded post-accident experience.’
