The RAC has created a new approved dealer standard for light commercial vehicles.
The scheme, written specifically for LCVs under 3.5 tonnes, includes a three-month RAC warranty, annual breakdown cover, a vehicle data check and enrolment to RAC Accident Care. The products are created and delivered by Assurant, which specialises in providing and administering warranties.
The standard, previously only applicable to cars, was introduced to coincide with the recent launch of the Vanbase supermarket in Bristol. Sean Kent, RAC sales director at Assurant, (pictured) said: “We have created an offering for used van buyers that we believe is market leading and will play an important part in Vanbase’s success.
“It expands to the LCV sector the level of reassurance that customers expect from a used vehicle carrying the RAC brand. The number of RAC approved dealers has grown in the last year and, with the creation of the LCV product, we believe that there is considerable potential to bring our standard to a new section of the dealer community.”
