Since the end of last year, the arwe group has been the London service partner of the car sharing provider Zipcar.
Zipcar is the world’s largest car club network and currently operate in over fifty cities across Europe and North America. Joining Zipcar gives the user access to the car they need when they need it. Once a user is a member, when they need a car they choose their make and model from a selection parked around their local area, get in and drive off.
In London, Zipcar is available in the boroughs of Hackney, Waltham Forest, Haringey, Islington and Enfield. Direct Valeting service the fl eet of over four hundred Zipcar vehicles stationed in these boroughs.
Direct Valeting planners use an interactive control and planning app to identify time slots when the car is not in use and direct operators to the car via GPS. The vehicle is checked for damage and thoroughly cleaned. The operator updates the system and the vehicle is then back in use. Random quality checks by Zipcar ensure that every user has a clean car.
The experience and expertise of the arwe Group, added to the proven reliability of its services for car sharing companies across in Europe have proven their worth. Following the project in London, Zipcar has earmarked further cities in the UK for Direct Valeting.
