About Us: by MD Martyn Raybould
The SVA is a Trade Association not unlike any other association of like minded businesses, set up with a view to build a fraternity of members who benefit from a shared strength in numbers, whats unique about us are the free of charge benefits from our Founder Partners who provide services to you the Members. We also have a vision, of adding a million Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts join us, free for life and all accessing our benefits and member services on demand, those owners can find advice, cars and companies for every aspect of Specialist car ownership.
Our Founder Partners are a group of sector leading businesses many of you will recognise, they have accepted our invitation to provide a benefit exclusively to us to aid Business and Owners. Our Financial Services partners can arrange insurance at specialist rates on vehicles from £3,000 to many millions including important collections, and, if you have or are an overseas owner wanting to keep a car in the UK but is not
resident, that’s possible with the SVA too. We have two of the UK’s leading specialist lenders to aid customers buy collectible cars. And given the importance of personal and business financial planning, the SVA has arranged the services of one of the UK’s leading Wealth Management companies St James Place/McKenzie to provide advice and assistance on investment, pensions and other such matters. (I have such faith in St James Place/McKenzie Isabel Clarke, I asked them to help me manage the plans for my own retirement. At 61, no small thing!)
‘Trade members enjoy many other benefits, from free delivery on oils, to arranging showroom displays for Valet Products.
The SVA is FREE TO JOIN for business and always will remain such for the first year with instant access to benefits, then regardless of the business size, the annual fee is just £99/Year to continue to enjoy membership.
I sincerely trust you will see the benefits the SVA can provide to help your business grow in 2019 and beyond..
Martyn Raybould MCMI
For over 12 years, I have worked with many different businesses & clubs in the World of Classic & Collectible Cars, providing support, advice & insurance to business, owners & enthusiast. It became clear to me that this vibrant & increasingly valuable sector is filled with people passionate about metal & their businesses! And, with the new influx of “Investor-collectors” coming into the market, there would soon be even more buying customers with sometimes vast budgets to spend.
The Car is the Star but how in a highly competitive market do you stand out, provide new services, added value, drive more business & square the perfect service circle without spending large sums of money?
That’s exactly why I formed this Trade Association, to bring together every business in the sector, then expose your business to the wider enthusiast public. It is completely FREE OF CHARGE to become a member of the SVA and we will provide you with a wide range of real benefits for your business, whether you need to access discounted products such as lubricant & coolants and valeting chemicals’ or assist customers needing funding or insurance products. And, the SVA WILL PAY YOU THE MEMBER commission from those financial service partners for business introduced.
We are also here for you 24/7, which means if you’re with a client late in the day or Saturday morning and need us, just call and let us help you when you need it!
We launch with 20 leading partners, all recruited to help your business grow and prosper, including:
Classic Insurance Services for ‘Trader cover’ and ‘Private client’ level service and insurance products for cars and collections over £250,000
Lancaster for standard car insurance up to a vehicle value of £250k.
