ChipsAway is the UK’s leading mobile car paintwork repair specialist focusing on SMART (“Small to Medium Area Repair Technology”) repairs. We have been operating successfully for over 20 years and have over 200 franchisees in the UK. ChipsAway also has a presence in ten countries outside the UK through master franchise arrangements.
Our franchisees repair small scale damage on vehicles such as bumper scuffs, paintwork scratches, minor dents and kerbed alloy wheels. Our mobile franchisees conveniently come to the customer’s house or office, working from branded vehicles which serve as mobile workshops. Our specialists can also service customers through a number of drop-in Car Care Centres. Pricing can be competitive when compared to a typical body shop
Our marketing team works very hard to provide our franchisees with a constant source of high quality customer leads and in 2017, ChipsAway franchisees benefited from 246,000 enquiries (2016: 248,000). ChipsAway has regular national TV advertising campaigns which have run since 2009.
We are passionate about providing our franchisees with first class training and day-to-day support to help them grow their businesses. All new franchisees complete four weeks of initial training at the Group’s facility which is accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry, and this includes sales and marketing training. We support all franchisees to successfully launch their businesses. Post launch, franchisees are provided with on-going support and development to help them build successful and profitable businesses. Over 60 franchisees now have operations which are either multi-van, multi-territory or include Car Care Centres.
