Electric vehicle start up, SEA Electric has announced it has strengthened its strategic partnership with specialist insurer NTI’s Truck Assist Roadside assistance service with the company also managing a 24/7 call centre for the OEM, along with also offering insurance options for operators in the EV space.

SEA Electric says that  gaining the support of NTI further eases the customer transition into the zero-emissions transport world.

“By manufacturing the world’s first true range of electric trucks in Melbourne, and supporting them via an extensive nationwide sales and service network, SEA Electric has normalised the process for companies to convert to all-electric fleets,” said SEA Electric president for the Asia Pacific Region, Bill Gillespie.

“The next logical step was to strengthen our ties with NTI via this suite of initiatives and provide SEA Electric customers with the confidence that a specialist truck call centre is supporting their investment around the clock.

“All new SEA Electric trucks also operate with the backing of NTI’s Truck Assist Roadside assistance for the life of the SEA Electric vehicle’s warranty period of three years or 150,000km.

“Supporting SEA Electric customers by having expert help at hand if ever required, further adds to our operator’s peace of mind.”

For truck owners across the country, Truck Assist has grown a reputation as a dependable partner that keeps businesses moving, with its insurance policy offering designed to meet the needs of electric truck owners.

As Australia’s number one heavy vehicle insurance and roadside assistance provider, we are committed to providing SEA Electric truck owners a comprehensive product and service that is handled with expertise and care, every step of the way,” said Alan Hasted, general manager, Truck Assist.

“We’ve taken a hands-on approach to understanding how EVs work and knowing what customers need – from understanding the technology, to how they are manufactured, and ensuring that our operators are equipped to offer 24/7 specialist roadside support.

As a truck specialist we’re here to support operators to need to maintain fleet uptime whilst being conscious of environmental impacts, and seeking long-term economical options for their business.”

The 24/7 SEA Connect phone service is available to SEA Electric owners via 1800 SEA EVS (1800 732 387).
