Kwik Fit extends maintenance subscription offering

Kwik Fit has announced it is extending its motoring maintenance subscription service to corporate customers.

Kwik Fit Club was launched for private vehicle owners in 2021 enabling drivers to pay monthly for their motoring maintenance.

Now the company believes the service, which covers all tyre costs, MOT and annual servicing, can serve a growing corporate demand.

Dan Joyce, Kwik Fit fleet director, said: “Kwik Fit Club has proved to be very attractive to private drivers who want as much certainty as possible over their motoring costs. This is obviously also very relevant to those businesses running fleet vehicles without maintenance contracts, so it makes perfect sense to extend Kwik Fit Club to those customers.

“With the current cost of living crisis, many corporate clients are looking for ways to support their employees wherever possible. There are pressures on all households’ expenditure but as vehicle safety is obviously one area which should never be compromised, we believe that businesses will view Kwik Fit Club very positively in helping deliver their duty of care to employees.”

Meanwhile, Kwik Fit’s research indicated that maintenance subscriptions could also improve safety on the roads; two in five drivers (40%) said they have put off car repairs or maintenance, rising to 55% of drivers aged 18-34. Worryingly, the average length of time these drivers used their car before getting the work done was 58.7 days, during which time that car could have travelled 1,190 miles.
