Inchcape UK launches Technician Tool Insurance

Inchcape UK has continued to increase the benefits it provides for vehicle technicians with the introduction of Technician Tool Insurance.

Technicians across Inchcape’s centres around the country will have the opportunity to be included free of charge in the additional benefit of personal tool insurance, fully funded by the company. Providing cover on a ‘new for old’ basis up to the value of £20,000, this has been introduced to benefit the many workshop and bodyshop technicians employed across the group who generally build up their own valuable collection of tools.

James Brearley, CEO at Inchcape UK, said, ‘Many of our technicians have built up their own high value tool collection which they use alongside the equipment we provide. We know these personal tools are extremely important to them and that they will have been a significant investment. We want to help them protect their personal property and continue to show our ongoing commitment to being the employer of choice for technicians in our industry.’

Technicians can easily sign up for the new benefit by using the internal CitNOW application to make a short video of their toolbox. This is shared with workshop control who completes the insurance applications for all technicians at that centre.
