First Underwriting participates in National Police Chiefs’ Council Vehicle Recovery Group Forum

First Underwriting is proud to announce our participation in the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) Vehicle Recovery Group meeting, which took place on March 20th and 21st, 2024. This collaboration reflects our deep commitment to safety within the vehicle recovery industry.

Working Together for a Safer Roadside

Alongside PROSE (Professional Recovery Operator Safety Executive), First Underwriting aims to support the promotion of the highest safety standards for vehicle recovery operators.

As insurers, we recognise the inherent risks involved in handling, transporting, and storing vehicles. The Vehicle Recovery Group forum represented an opportunity for a joined-up approach in addressing the latest developments.

Addressing Emerging Risks in the Electric Vehicle Age

At the forum Steve Craddock, Head of Motor Trade at First Underwriting, addressed the rising presence of electric vehicles (EVs) on our roads and the unique challenges they present for recovery operators. His discussion explored the impact on insurance for the sector, and effective risk mitigation strategies in this evolving landscape.

First Underwriting: A Champion for the Recovery Industry

As a specialist insurer, First Underwriting strives to be at the forefront of industry discussions on existing and emerging risks. We were honoured to participate in dialogue alongside recovery industry representatives from PROF, AVRO, PROSE; and the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, the Institute of the Motor Industry, and the Metropolitan Police.

Emphasising our commitment, Steve commented: “We are honoured to have contributed to these vital discussions at the NPCC conference. By sharing knowledge and learning from industry leaders, we ensure our insurance and risk management solutions effectively protect vehicle recovery professionals and the public they serve.”
