Refreshment Systems Sole Suppliers to Car Care Plan

Our thanks to Refreshment Systems for sharing their Case History on Car Care Plan and are this week’s guest bloggers.


Founded in 1976, Car Care Plan is recognised as one of the world’s leading providers of vehicle warranty, asset protection and after sales motoring programmes.

They work with an extensive list of leading manufacturers, group and independent dealers along with several major affinity partners, to provide over 1,000,000 award winning warranty and protection products every year.


The Company had been with their previous suppliers for over six years, however had noticed that service levels had started to dip. Also, with having two suppliers the process was not as streamlined as it could be. It became apparent when releasing their latest tender that their current provider was unable to offer a solution to meet the company’s expectations. As their business continues to grow, they needed a company that would grow with them. There was also the need to offer their employees a healthier vending and drink solution, to meet the company’s values and ethos.


Our offer was to install two hot drinks machines, two vending machines (one snack and one cold drinks machine), plus eight water coolers, across two of their offices. We also included a healthy eating competition as part of the tender (which was rolled out with the installation), to encourage sales of the healthier product lines. This teamed with the opportunity to ‘try before you buy ’with our mobile showroom, enabled the team to sample the drinks menu before the final decision was made. This not only made employees feel like they were part of the buying process, but also set expectations, meaning a much smoother transition period between suppliers.
