Fantastic Vehicles and Where to Find Them

Blog Scv New

Mitul Malkan, Product Manager for Commercial at ERS

From catering trailers volumetric mixers to mobile cinemas or even dog grooming vehicles, our Specialist Commercial Vehicles (SCV) product might be the single most diverse offering we have at ERS. It’s seven different categories rolled into one, each of them comprising a vast array of weird and wonderful vehicles serving unique, distinct and sometimes surprising purposes.

Some of these undoubtedly carry higher levels of risk than others – we make it our business to try and cover as many as we possibly can, by getting into the details of exactly how these fantastic vehicles are being used to ascertain the true level of risk presented by each one. 

In fact, our SCV product is broader than brokers may think; some have even told us of their surprise on finding out that we are able to cater for their customers’ most outlandish machines. So we thought it would be helpful to take you quickly through each of the categories we cover and outline some of the quirkiest vehicles currently on our books. You never know – you may find that SCV is the perfect fit for some of your current customer needs.
