The new tie-up brings glass services into the mix. CEO Scott Hamilton said Chris Eldridge, general manager of Belron’s Autorestore will join the board.

“The motoring service industry is really starting to sit up and take notice of our business now and see the commercial opportunities it presents to them. We are really delighted to be able to extend our network of service providers in a big way, by having the global strength and specialist expertise of Belron not only as part of our network, but also joining us with a representative on the company board.”

Belron regional general manager Nigel Doggett added: "“This partnership means we will become a key service provider on for accident damage and glass repair and replacement. It will also allow us to help solve our customers’ problems in a different way in today’s ever changing digital landscape.

“ differentiates itself in the price comparison market through its focus on quality and customer service. This has resulted in many customers choosing a service provider based on factors they value more than just the lowest price, such as convenience and overall service levels. This fits extremely well with our own core values of service and quality.”
