GT Motive Announces 8% Price Increase for Estimating Platform

In a recent announcement, GT Motive revealed its plans to raise prices by 8% for estimate creation, including Vehicle Query (VQ) and Vehicle Registration Number to Vehicle Identification Number (VRN-VIN) services, manual estimate creation, system access charges, and VIN queries. This adjustment, effective 1st March, signifies a departure from the “pay-per-use” pricing structure that GT Motive has maintained since 2020. The decision reflects the company’s strategy to ensure the continued delivery of the UK’s premier estimating platform.

David Vella, the executive director for the UK & Ireland, emphasised the necessity of this pricing adjustment. He stated, “While the price adjustment may present a small change to our end users and customers, it is a necessary decision for us to make in order for us to continue delivering the UK’s best-estimating platform.”

Vella acknowledged that this move was essential for the company to maintain its commitment to innovation, collaboration, and investment in the estimating platform’s development, saying, “At GT Motive, we’ve always believed in putting the needs of our customers first, that’s why we made the decision during the pandemic to suspend all estimating charges for a six-month period. Since then, we have continued to innovate, collaborate, and invest in our estimating platform so our end users have access to the latest models, parts pricing, and technology.”
