Find your freedom with the UK’s leading automotive franchise
ChipsAway is the largest network of car body repair specialists in the UK. We’re the originators of the SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair process, which allows us to repair minor damage to a car’s bodywork quickly, and at a fraction of the cost of a traditional bodyshop.
We’re currently seeking new franchisees to take on their own mobile ChipsAway business in territories across the UK. It’s a rare opportunity to work outside, set your own hours, and enjoy job satisfaction every time you go to work.
Your services will always be in demand
There are over 37 million vehicles on the road in the UK. With cars getting bigger but parking spaces remaining as tight as ever, there’s no shortage of cars suffering paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and minor dents.
Wherever your customers are, you’ll visit them with your mobile workshop, and within a couple of hours you’ll have their vehicles looking as good as new.
When and how often you work is completely up to you. But like all ChipsAway franchisees, you can expect a constantly replenishing pool of customers to keep you busy.
We’re with you all the way
We understand that starting your own business is a step into the unknown. But that’s what makes it so rewarding. And you can be sure we’ll be right alongside you providing unrivalled levels of support.
Over 80% of our franchisees had no experience of painting cars before they joined ChipsAway. We’ll give you a comprehensive four-week technical training course to teach you the ChipsAway method at our IMI-accredited facility.
We’ll also provide business mentoring to ensure you’re completely confident running every aspect of your new venture. Training covers sales, marketing and dealing with customers. Even once your business is off the ground you’ll have unlimited access to technical advice and help from fellow franchisees. You’ll never be on your own
A tried and tested business model, whatever your aspirations
Although starting a franchise might be new to you, you can trust that we’ve been here before. As the brand leader we know how to help you run and grow your business. Our national marketing campaigns generate 250,000 enquiries a year. So from day one you’ll have enough work to keep you busy. The average franchisee received over 1,000 enquiries via Head Office in 2020, which at our average repair value equates to over £150,000 worth of work*!
The franchise is £29,995+VAT, but our various pricing options mean you can get started for as little as £15,000+VAT.
When it comes to being your own boss, success means different things to different people. Our business model is flexible and can be tailored to help you achieve whatever success means to you. Our most profitable franchisees are turning over in excess of £1m. Others are simply enjoying the freedom and satisfaction of being in control of their own destiny. With ChipsAway, you decide what success is.
