GSF Car Parts adds the Volkswagen Caddy to its fleet
- Created: 01 September 2016
GSF Car Parts will be putting the Volkswagen Caddy to good use in new plans to up their business's effectiveness. The automobile component supplier are adding 10 of the vehicles to its existing fleet.
The new additions, according to Tyrepress, are to increase the number of local trade customer deliveries. The main reason behind the company's choice was the model's cost-effectiveness, as the Caddy provides sufficient load capacity and better fuel economy.
In a bid to further improve productivity and help avoid the time-consuming claims process, each of the vans will include a trackable forward-facing camera. The operations director at GSF car parts, Dave Lewis, commented on the reasons behind the decision to use the new technology. "The in-vehicle cameras bring a range of benefits. We can monitor the vans to discover potential for route or workload optimisations that may boost efficiency."
"Also, in the unfortunate event of any road traffic accidents the cameras can provide valuable information. If GSF can avoid falling victim to spurious claims, and therefore keep our insurance premiums as low as possible, the cost savings ultimately benefit our garage customers."
The popular Caddy has been serving van drivers for generations, and the extra feature of the on-board cameras may well prove to be a vital inclusion for GSF, just as it is likely to be for many other companies that own and operate a large fleet of commercial vehicles. Insurance claims from others can be the ruination of any van-based business if they are not properly prepared for, and anything that helps disprove the driver's liability in cases where they were not at fault will surely be an invaluable tool.
Whatever industry you operate in, and no matter what your van of choice is or if it has a built-in camera, there is always the need for van insurance. iVan offers reliable any driver van insurance for tradesman across the country.
