Bristolian Ashley Kelly Makes A Smart Move With Revive!

25-year old Ashley Kelly, who lives in Yate, is launching his new business this month, Revive! Bristol, specialising in repairing minor bodywork damage, wheel damage, and scuffs & scrapes on vehicles.

Revive! - Ashley KellyBorn and raised in Bristol Ashley attended Chipping Sodbury Specialist Technology School before undertaking a 3 year panel beating and body repair Apprenticeship at the Parkway Transport Technology Centre, part of City of Bristol College. As part of his apprenticeship Ashley worked for a car dealership in Chipping Sodbury and when he’d finished his course he continued on in their body shop.

Eight years on and Ashley started thinking about moving on to new pastures. Becoming his own boss had been a long held dream.

"I thought starting up my own body shop would be too risky as the overheads are so high, then I came across Revive! It’s a mobile business and I have everything I need in my van. I travel to customers’ homes or places of work and can repair minor scrapes, bumper scuffs or refurbish alloy wheels there and then."

Ashley continued: "The techniques and equipment we use at Revive! guarantee an excellent result and the prices are very competitive. Most of the time the cost is less than the insurance policy excess so it doesn’t affect customers’ no claims bonus."

Ashley’s territory covers the whole of Bristol and surrounding areas. In the future he hopes to expand his operation by taking on additional vans and employing staff.
