Halfords Autocentres is looking to increase the amount of servicing work it does on light commercial vehicle and light trucks after signing a deal with 1Link Service Network.
Halfords will use the 1Link Service Network e-commerce platform to help provide service and maintenance for LCVs up to 3.5 tonnes across its 244 centres in the UK.
Halfords Autocentres is a long time user of the 1Link e-commerce platform for company car servicing but this is the first time the system has been used for vans and light trucks. Halfords will be looking to grow the amount of servicing work it has already established in the LCV sector.
Bill Duffy, chief executive at Halfords Autocentres, said: “We are very keen to attract more business from LCV fleets and signing up to 1link as a supplier of service and maintenance for this sector is a key step forward in this strategy.
“We are growing quickly and want to make it easy as possible for customers to do business with us.
“We already make extensive use of the 1link platform as part of our relationship with major company car and van fleets and it has proven very successful for us in terms of processing fleet work quickly and accurately. The same should be true for commercial vehicles.”
Epyx, the company behind 1Link, now has 16,000 franchise dealers, independent garages and fast fit operations signed up to the 1Link Service Network.
