Who are ChipsAway?

Chipsaway franchise business opportunity automotive car repairAs 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.

A ChipsAway business package includes technical training, marketing and sales courses, ongoing business and technical support and advice, a host of marketing materials and a 24/7 Call Centre, based in the UK, ready to answer customer enquiries.

This market-leading franchise will cost £29,995 + VAT, but with our various pricing options you will only need £15,000 + VAT to get started.
