The most recognised SMART repairer in the UK


ChipsAway was launched in the UK in 1994 and provides services now commonly referred to in the automotive repair industry as “SMART” repairs. SMART stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology and relates to smaller scale repairs such as bumper scuffs, paintwork scratches, minor dents and kerbed alloy wheels.

Often these repairs can often be carried out without re-painting the entire panel or wheel and can therefore be carried out on a mobile basis at a location convenient to the customer.  Our specialists can also service customers through a number of drop-in CarCare Centres.

ChipsAway has over 200 specialists operating in the UK and Ireland, and is the brand leader in its sector. ChipsAway has regular national TV advertising campaigns which have run since 2009. TV advertising has been made possible through the National Advertising Fund and the experience of the Franchise Brands marketing team.

All ChipsAway franchisees are provided with comprehensive initial training and on-going support and development to help them build successful businesses.

ChipsAway seeks to maintain the highest possible automotive industry standards. It is a member of the VBRA, and the BVRLA and operates an IMI QAA approved training centre at the Kidderminster Head Office from which franchisee training is carried out.

ChipsAway is a full member of the British Franchise Association.
