Motoring ahead with ChipsAway

Aged just 23, car fanatic Ross McKenzie became the youngest member of the UK’s leading minor automotive paintwork repair network, having ‘stumbled’ across the ChipsAway franchise opportunity when he was looking for someone to repair his pride and joy almost five years ago.

Ross.jpgRoss had always taken a keen interest in all things automotive and although he wasn’t particularly looking for a new career direction, he was intrigued by the ChipsAway offering and having attended an Open Day, was totally convinced! When he was offered a very reasonable voluntary redundancy package, he took advantage of it to help fund the franchise investment cost.

“I’ve always loved cars and I’m quite a practical person anyway, so I think that helped. The ChipsAway trainers are fantastic – great teachers and also really supportive. My Business Mentor, who was with me for my promotions, as well as at the end of the phone should I need some advice or guidance, was also brilliant,” Ross comments.

“During my first launch weekend we managed to estimate around £5,000 worth of work and book in approximately £3,500 – which kept me nice and busy for the first six weeks or so!”

Following his really successful launch, Ross has gone on to substantially develop his ChipsAway business. Just last year he decided the time was right to invest in another van and employee to service his large territory, and is currently now in the process of opening a ChipsAway CarCare Centre (fixed base workshop), which will allow him to process even more vehicles.

Ross has recently also been awarded the coveted title of ‘Marketeer of the Year’ by the Franchisor, as a result of his carefully planned and well executed marketing activity, promoting the ChipsAway brand values of top quality automotive paintwork repairs, outstanding customer service and excellent value for money.

ChipsAway is the UK’s leading automotive paintwork repair specialist, with a nationwide network of around 300 technicians providing high quality on-the-spot repairs to minor damage such as paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and kerbed alloy wheels. Repairs are completed within a matter of hours and at a fraction of the cost of traditional body shop repair methods. With 35 million vehicles on the road and over 24 million repair opportunities each year, demand for ChipsAway repairs is higher than ever before.
