Autosheen seeks new franchisees to clean up in Scotland
The UK’s leading specialist valeting franchise Autosheen is seeking to expand its Scottish franchisee network, particularly in the Edinburgh area, says Managing Director Paul Fennell. This is due to significantly increased demand from its established National Account customer base.
“No other mobile valeting company can offer such a wide range of specialist services – including Marine and Leisure Vehicle Valeting – or the opportunity for franchisees to tap into an impressive portfolio of lucrative National Accounts customers,” he explains.
“Nationwide coverage is vital to enable us to service our growing National Accounts customer base; especially in Scotland, where we are focused on strengthening our network.”
Scottish franchisee Ian Bell, of East Kilbride joined Autosheen earlier this year. A police officer for 30 years, Ian is now cleaning up with his new business and enjoying his new found freedom.
“After 30 years service, I was ready for a change of direction in my life and decided to look for an opportunity to work for myself,” he says. “Although I have a great deal of experience in dealing with people, obviously I don’t have a background in business and realised that an established franchise with a proven track record would provide the best chance of success. I liked the sound of the Autosheen franchise package and I’m very interested in cars, so this seemed a perfect fit. I feel I’m benefiting from being part of a well recognised brand with excellent training and strong ongoing support. So far my business is going really well, customers have been really impressed with the results and I now get to clean up in town in a whole new way!” he jokes.
Ian adds: “Autosheen’s specialist services go well beyond straight forward car washing, and include detailing valets as well as paintwork damage rectification, paintwork protection and a high gloss machine polishing service that restores car paintwork back to showroom condition. This means I can charge premium prices to regular customers who value high quality and who go on to recommend me to family, colleagues and friends.”
Autosheen is the UK’s leading mobile valet specialist, uniquely accredited by the Institute of the Motoring Industry (IMI) Awards; its franchisees are the only specialist leisure vehicle technicians qualified and fully trained to this standard.
Established over twenty-five years, its nationwide network of highly trained professionals provide a high quality range of services to private and business customers across the UK.
