"The VRA has worked with Aston Lark, formerly IHN, for many years, offering competitive rate insurance for our members. Aston Lark possesses an in-depth knowledge of the vehicle recycling industry, which allows them to understand the unique risks presented at end-of-life vehicle approved treatment facilities. In turn, feedback from Aston Lark enables the VRA, as the leading trade body for vehicle recycling professionals, to inform members about how they can reduce risks and improve business performance."
