Alternative Fuel Vehicle Handling

Keeping up with changing technology.

At B.I.A.S., we strive to be at the forefront of major technical developments. With electric vehicles becoming more mainstream due to the plans to scrap petrol and diesel cars in the near future, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to ensure we can deliver a cost-effective and reliable service when it comes to handling EVs.

We have a planned timetable of investment to support the infrastructure requirements for the growing EV market, in addition to our super-fast charge points already installed, we are upgrading our site’s primary electric feeds as well as plant and ground works.

Investments in employees is also a priority for us, with many of our key staff already trained to IMI Level 3, as well as completing manufacturer specific training for handling EVs. We have a dedicated EV team on site to support every aspect of whole life vehicle management, from vehicle imagery to servicing and inspections, and can handle entire fleets.

Our close relationships with key manufacturers allow us to gain a deep understanding of brand-specific requirements, and enables us to remain up-to-date with new features and technologies.

B.I.A.S. is also working closely with the Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA) to develop a code of best practice for EV handling, aiming to support safety within the industry.

As the EV market grows, we will continue to invest both time and money into our facilities to ensure we always have the capabilities to meet our customers’ needs.
