The Parts Alliance announces online garage services aggregator partnership
UK automotive parts distributor The Parts Alliance has announced a new partnership agreement with online servicing and repairs aggregator WhoCanFixMyCar.com. The group says the deal will help to provide motorists nationwide with quality parts and value in their vehicle repairs and servicing through their local independent garage. Within the trade, The Parts Alliance says the partnership will result in increased enquiries for its customer garages, while the ease of quoting and auto parts purchasing processes will be increased.
Alistair Preston, co-founder of WhoCanFixMyCar.com, said: “We are delighted to be working with The Parts Alliance. Co-ordinating with the 13 distributors within the group has taken some time but we wanted to ensure every business is aware of the potential benefits of the partnership and has readied their teams and systems.
“It has been great to get buy-in from everyone and we are moving forward to provide even more value to motorists and garages.
“We have had nearly 50,000 people use WhoCanFixMyCar.com already and our aim is simple: to provide the motorist with choice and transparency when choosing a local garage, whilst ensuring quality parts are fitted to their vehicle.
“The Parts Alliance partnership allows us to build on this by offering quality auto-parts and, given its penetration in the UK independent sector, the opportunity to offer a much larger network of competitively-priced, customer-rated garages to the consumer.”
WhoCanFixMyCar.com has targeted the growth of its affiliated network from 5,000 to 12,000 garages by the end of 2015.
Peter Smart, head of marketing for The Parts Alliance, said: “Partnering with WhoCanFixMyCar.com makes perfect sense for us. Giving motorists access to our range of more than 400,000 OE matching quality parts through their local garages, enabled by WhoCanFixMyCar.com, means we can help ensure they are getting the best quality parts fitted at really great value and backed up with a comprehensive parts warranty.
“We will work closely with our garage customers to help them win business through WhoCanFixMyCar.com, whether it’s how to generate quick, high quality quotations or ensuring they are getting the most out of the customer reviews.
“We’re seeing fantastic results with garages recently signing up to WhoCanFixMyCar.com winning work straight away, especially those garages that are part of our national Servicesure Autocentre network.”
