Baldwins notches up an electric first as it partners with Bluecity

BALDWINS Repair Group has become the first UK accident repairer to work in partnership with point-to-point electric-car-sharing scheme Bluecity.

The unique scheme is being rolled out across London and is the capital’s first point-to-point car-sharing scheme powered exclusively with green energy.

The Buckinghamshire-based vehicle repairer, which operates out of four UK sites, started working with Bluecity last month and is accredited with the prestigious BSI BS10125 kitemark for vehicle damage repair – the highest endorsement in the industry.

It is responsible for managing the fleet of red, lithium metal polymer battery-powered city cars during electrical breakdown and accident repair. It also carries out pre-delivery inspections and post-repair inspections, and commissions and decommissions vehicles.

The company is fully equipped to repair all types of electric vehicles (EVs) and charge points at its Aylesbury centre, and has a dedicated, highly skilled and fully electric-vehicle-trained team.

General manager Peter Randhawa said: ‘As EV advocates, we are delighted to be part of this scheme. This partnership has been almost two years in the making, but I am overjoyed with the result.

‘To be chosen as the first UK accident repairer involved in a project of this scale shows that we are a forward-thinking organisation and engaged with a rapidly growing market. We look forward to working with Bluecity and seeing where this exciting electric future takes us.’

Christophe Arnaud, managing director of Bluecity, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to partner with Baldwins Repair Group. Together, we will offer our members the guarantee that all cars are repaired and maintained to the highest standards.

‘Bluecity is London’s first 100 per cent EV point-to-point car-sharing scheme, and we pride ourselves with the quality of our service from start to finish.’
