ChipsAway Franchisees offer a convenient, high quality and cost-effective alternative to car body shops. As a franchisee, you will repair paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs, minor dents and kerbed alloy damage to vehicles, all from a fully equipped mobile workstation.
Latest research shows that over 64% of the 34 million vehicles on the UK’s roads have ‘ChipsAway’ damage on their bodywork, and demand for our service is still growing!
No experience is necessary when beginning your ChipsAway journey. The system is easy to learn and simple to manage, and our experienced team of technicians will teach you everything you need to know at our unrivalled, bespoke IMI accredited centre.
The total franchise investment is £29,995 + VAT, but with the various pricing options that we offer, you only need £15,000 + VAT to get started with a ChipsAway franchise.
The proven, tried and tested business model is easily scalable and completely flexible to suit your ambitions. Most franchisees initially opt for a van-based franchise at first and many have then gone on to develop their business further, either through a multi-van, multi-territory or unit operations with their own Car Care Centres– the opportunities are endless!
With a ChipsAway franchise, you can finally take control of your own life and reap in the rewards of your own hard work, backed by an incredible, secure support system. You will be your own boss and have the opportunity to dictate your own working hours to suit your lifestyle, resulting in an excellent work/life balance.
Our proven business model and unrivalled support system will guarantee you a fantastic return on investment, with potential to reach £80,000p/a turnover.

Having been made redundant three years ago, Andy Cornell decided he wanted to take a different career path and launched a ChipsAway franchise:
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the way my business is going. I’d always dreamt of running my own business rather than seek another job. I wanted something flexible, that was not massively expensive and which had the potential for growth. ChipsAway has proved to be everything I’d hoped for. ‘It does what it says on the tin’, and if you follow the business model you can’t go wrong!”
David Greenaway got off to a flying start, and loves everything that being his own boss brings:
“I love being my own boss, I can work when it suits me and you really get out what you put in. People say I am lucky that my business is going so well, but in this game you make your own luck.”
