Who are we looking for?

One of the best things about ChipsAway is you don’t need any experience in car body repair to become a franchisee. This is because you will receive four weeks of expert repair training at our bespoke facility before you start, which is accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). 

We have helped hundreds of individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life through the process.  Our dedicated Franchise Support Team will help, guide and encourage you through – especially in the early weeks of your business

Franchise Description

As a ChipsAway business owner, you will visit customers locally in your mobile workshop, offering high quality, value-for-money, everyday car damage repairs, including paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and minor dents – known in the industry as SMART repairs. With ChipsAway’s flexible business plan, some franchisees develop their business further and operate from a Car Care Centre, with or without a mobile workshop, which can increase both the potential number of repairs that can be carried out, and the average repair value.

SMART repairs are quicker, more convenient and better value than traditional body shop methods, and we pride ourselves on our five-star Trustpilot rating awarded to us by our customers for the excellent, high quality service we provide.

What are the benefits of this franchise?

  • Full 4 Week comprehensive initial training course, including:
  • IMI accredited technical training to ensure you know everything you need to about repairing minor scratches and dents, as well as how to repair alloy wheels and apply Supagard.
  • A comprehensive Sales & Marketing course designed to make sure you are comfortable marketing your own franchise business.
