How to join a FOXY Lady Approved Network
Please see the bottom of this page for the latest rate schedule, application forms and a simple summary of our services.
FOXY Choice operates two FOXY Lady Approved networks, one for garages that carry out MOTs, car servicing & mechanical repairs and the other for repairers that carry out major accident repairs, more minor bodywork repairs and cosmetic SMART repairs.
Having identified genuinely female friendly independent garages, franchised dealerships, fastfits, accident repair centres and bodyshops that meet FOXY Lady Approved standards we then promote them to women drivers and review their performance, as illustrated.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU
To join a FOXY Lady Approved business network we require you to
1. Sign the female friendly FOXY Promise© to ‘never overcharge, patronise or sell women anything they don’t need.’
2. Demonstrate quality standards such as ATA, BSI Kitemark, manufacturer approval or membership of a Trading Standards ie TSI Approved Code scheme.
In the absence of any of these and/or where a mobile service is offered we require sight of three recent female testimonials before any application will be considered.
3. Make available gift online membership of FOXY Lady Drivers Club to female customers with an email address.
4. Promote FOXY Lady Approved status (using the logo and Female Friendly Code) at your website.
5. Provide a minimum of six female testimonials each year via the FOXY Choice website.
We also recommend that businesses appoint a Female Ambassador to not only represent the best interests of their women customers but also to coordinate getting the gift memberships of FOXY Lady Drivers Club to local ladies and their friends.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?
We offer a choice of subscription packages with 12 month rates ranging from £150 to £210 plus VAT. A one off £30 registration fee plus VAT is added to all new applications.
We reward applicants demonstrating signs of quality (ATA employers, BSI Kitemark holders and members of Trading Standards schemes including Motor Codes, Bosch Car Service and VBRA) with a 10% discount in total.
Businesses joining both networks (Garage and Repairer networks) will only be charged one registration fee.
Group discounts and corporate services apply for a minimum of ten subscriber locations.
