Nov 18, 2020 | Leisure & Lifestyle

Auxillis has again stepped up to support insurer Admiral with its NHS and emergency service worker mobility scheme – providing a free courtesy vehicle if theirs is stolen, undriveable after an accident, or declared a total loss – keeping essential workers on the road during the latest range of UK Covid-19 restrictions.

Admiral, unveiled the programme during the first nationwide lockdown, with Auxillis, delivering vehicles to over 800 NHS and emergency personnel ensuring they remained mobile at a critical time.  Following its success earlier this year Admiral is providing it again for the latest period of restrictions.

The unique hire vehicle service is now well underway and Auxillis expects it to be as successful as last time. Commenting on the service, recently appointed Auxillis Managing Director Susan Howe said, “Supporting this initiative is the ideal way to show our appreciation for the efforts of frontline workers, reducing the inconvenience they may face, and at the same time assisting one of our key business partners. We ensure motorists remain mobile every day, but it’s great to know we’re doing a little bit extra for this vital group.”   

Auxillis has remained fully operational from the outset of the pandemic, adapting quickly to implement a Covid secure environment at its Peterlee contact centre, with ‘Hands off’ delivery and collection procedures for hire vehicles and intensive work with the supply chain to protect customers, colleagues and the wider public.
