Each year 1 in 5 vehicles get a chipped windscreen. And with over 30 million vehicles on the UK roads, the potential market for windscreen repairs annually is 6 million.
You can be part of this lucrative market when you join Optic-Kleer, the UK’s largest windscreen-only repair company.
Optic-Kleer has been repairing chipped windscreens since 1991. Through our network of over 50 franchisees across the UK, we provide private and corporate customers with high quality, professional repairs using the most technically advanced repair system in the market.
Our high standards of customer care, including being able to offer a lifetime warranty for as long as the customer owns the vehicle, has helped Optic-Kleer to become the UK’s largest windscreen-only repair company.
We are also very proud of our branding, over 25 years of fine tuning, and believe it is another key Optic-Kleer advantage. We have worked hard to make it recogniseable and attractive, giving customers reassurance that they are choosing a professional automotive repair company when they choose Optic-Kleer.
You can now be part of this exciting brand. Optic-Kleer is looking for likeminded individuals across the UK to join our network of franchisees.
The role of the franchisee
All our technicians are franchisees. They are therefore passionate about the business as it is THEIR business; as a result, they will always strive to give customers the best service possible.
Our repair locations are in easily accessible supermarket and DIY store carparks. Optic-Kleer technicians can therefore work on a customer’s car whilst they shop; providing the customer with very little inconvenience.
As a result of our attractive branding and marketing, and being situated in highly visible locations, customers are drawn to us and so there is no requirement for leaflet drops, cold calling, door knocking or prospecting.
If you are interested in a business that serves the local community, earns you an income from day one and where the work never runs out, then we would love to hear from you.
