Who Are ChipsAway?

ChipsAway was launched in the UK in 1994, and today provides SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair technology to car owners across the country. With a rapidly expanding network of over 200 franchisees in the UK, we now have the largest network of repair specialists in the UK, who provide high-quality, value-for-money repairs to car paintwork, on a same-day basis. Our specialists work from vehicles fully equipped as mobile workshops, or fixed-base units known as Car Care Centres.

Getting started with ChipsAway

Established for over 25 years, our market-leading car repair franchise makes it straightforward for you to start your own business. You don’t need any car body repair experience because you’ll receive four weeks of expert, hands-on car repair training at our bespoke facility – accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) – before you start work.

What does success look like?

The beauty of running your own business with ChipsAway is that you define your own success. Some franchisees work from a single van, happy to go it alone and celebrate their own financial milestones. Others wish to expand their network, opening several franchises and employing multiple members of staff. Meanwhile, some engineers opt to set up a Car Care Centre which acts as a HQ for their empire. However you choose to work with ChipsAway, we’ll help you reach your ambitions.
