Volta Trucks has recently appointed Sapphire Vehicle Services as its first certified service partner for the UK. Sapphire Vehicle Services, with its extensive experience in the UK commercial fleet management sector, will provide vehicle maintenance solutions tailored to Volta Trucks customers’ requirements.
The company has 16 accredited service and maintenance facilities across the UK, as well as mobile servicing units linked to each location. These facilities will ensure Volta Trucks customers receive the best possible service and maximise vehicle uptime. Furthermore, the company’s EV-trained technicians and specialists will undergo extensive and ongoing training on Volta Zero vehicles provided by the Volta Trucks Academy at the cpm[pany’s UK in Tottenham, London.
As the service partner, Sapphire Vehicle Services will complement the Volta Trucks Hub location in Tottenham, London, and will play a significant role in the company’s Truck as a Service (TaaS) offering. The TaaS proposition aims to provide a frictionless way to migrate fleets of all sizes to electric, maximising their uptime and operational efficiency, and revolutionising the ownership, servicing, financing, and management of commercial vehicle fleets.
“Certified Service Partners are an integral part of our strategy for vehicle care, further supporting operations in cities and urban environments outside the vicinity of our Truck as a Service Hub locations,” explained Casper Norden, Chief Fleet Solutions Office at Volta Truck. “Servicing and maintenance is a cornerstone of the TaaS proposition, so with our Hub locations and Certified Service Partners working together, we’re providing customers with a comprehensive solution and ongoing confidence in the uptime of their Volta Zero.”
“Having already invested heavily in training, tooling, and charging infrastructure over the last two years we are excited at the prospect of working closely with our colleagues at Volta Trucks to develop the business and support customers across the UK,” added Perry Reeves, Managing Director of Sapphire Vehicle Services.
The announcement of Sapphire Vehicle Services as the service partner for the UK comes shortly after the news that Top Truck has been named the same for France, Italy, and Spain.
