We are delighted to announce a partnership with Autonet Insurance, the UK’s largest independent van insurance broker.

The collaboration offers Autonet Insurance customers a free three-month subscription to everreach. All subscriptions include a new local or national virtual phone number and a call forwarding and management system to ensure new jobs and leads are effectively managed.

The partnership is the latest addition to the suite of services already available to the Autonet Insurance tradesman customer base and has been established to support the continued growth of start-ups and enterprise in the UK. It follows a recent everreach study revealing that the mismanagement of business calls can cost tradespeople up to £52,000 a year in lost revenue.

Ian Donaldson, Managing Director of Autonet Insurance, said:

“We are pleased to create a partnership with everreach to enable us to provide a virtual phone service to Autonet Insurance customers. We know how imperative it is that every call is answered in order to grow their business.

“With the impending launch of the Autonet SME quote and buy online facility, this is just another way Autonet want to make the life of all their self-employed clients even easier. This new platform will help ensure that their business is taken care of.”

Nick Mullen, CEO of everreach, comments:

“There are over three million people in skilled trades across the country, making up a tenth of the workforce and contributing to over 240,000 live policies at Autonet Insurance. These are exactly the kind of people we can support as they get their businesses off the ground; not only in providing a local or national number to give them some added credibility but by managing their calls and ensuring no leads are missed when they’re on the move, on a job or even too busy to pick up.”

The free three-month subscription to everreach is available to Autonet Insurance customers from Tuesday 8 July.
