About Us: by MD Martyn Raybould
The Specialist Vehicle Associates (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, what is unique about us are that we are completely free to join and offer a range of benefits from our Founder Partners who provide services to you the Members. We also have a vision, of adding a million Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts to join us, free for life, accessing any and all benefits and member services you display. Those owners can find your business to serve every aspect of Classic and Modern Performance car ownership they might need.
Our Founder Partners are a group of sector leading businesses many of you will recognise, they have accepted our invitation to work with us to aid our members and Owners. Our Financial Service partners can arrange insurance at specialist rates on vehicles from £3,000 to many millions including important collections, 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 more.
SVA trade members enjoy many other benefits, including discount on your Trader Insurance from Classic Insurance Services and discounted car finishing products with showroom displays from ValetPRO and much more.
The SVA is FREE TO JOIN for business for the first year, with your own web page and instant access to benefits. Then regardless of the business size, the annual fee is just £99/Year to continue to enjoy membership.
Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts can simply subscribe to our e-news letter and enjoy Enthusiast Membership benefits FREE FOR LIFE.
Our Youtube channel is also home to what will be a pantheon of ‘Movers & Shakers’ from the Classic and Collectible car world. Watch and listen to the lives of some highly Interesting, Informative and Inspirational car people. Our first interview was Classic Le Mans and Cegga Ferrari owner Dave ‘Cookie’ Cooke of UK rugby fame.
I sincerely trust you too will join us and let the Specialist Vehicle Associates help your business grow in 2021 and beyond..
For over 12 years, I have worked in the World of Classic & Collectible Cars, providing support, advice & insurance to business, owners & enthusiast. It became clear to me that this vibrant sector did not enjoy a trade body, an organisation to support and underpin businesses, to add value and increase visitors to their websites. So in 2019, the Specialist Vehicle Association was born and we are not a regulatory body, our job is simple. Support and network classic and collectible car businesses to mutual benefit.
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 where we come in, to bring businesses together, then expose them to the wider enthusiast public. It is completely FREE OF CHARGE to become a Trade 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 trader insurance to valeting products, or to assist customers needing assistance, funding to buy cars or insurance to collect them. We can also connect you to the experts you need, immediately!
We also now welcome Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts, to register for our e-news letter and access all displayed discounts, services and benefits as an Enthusiast member. Subscription is FREE For Life!
