An impressive 98% of the Autosmart network has remained open during the pandemic

Autosmart, the UK’s largest manufacturer and supplier of vehicle & hygiene cleaning products, entered 2020 and their 41st year in business delivering record levels of sales and business performance. The latest achievement is being ranked the UK’s No.1 van-based franchise by Franchise Direct and positioned No. 4 overall in the UK’s top 100 franchises.

2019 was an incredible year for the vehicle & hygiene cleaning specialists, with average sales per showroom exceeding £300K per year and with the local franchisees driving growth and playing a real part in protecting the environment with the “Barrel for Life” campaign which also allows franchisees to give back to local charities.

Not only has the “Barrel for Life” campaign  been used to grow franchisees’ sales while saving customers money, but it has been instrumental in driving reductions in plastic waste to the equivalent of 14,472,000 plastic bottles in a year by installing nearly 5,000 barrels of cleaning products.

Autosmart Franchise | Van-Based Business OpportunityOn top of that, for each barrel sold every franchisee gets to donate £10 to a local charity of their choice.  Autosmart franchisee, Andrew Seed in Norfolk is pictured here donating £1660 to the charity for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

Autosmart franchisees operate from purpose built mobile showrooms within their own local and exclusive territories with repeat rounds of customers who buy every month. 

The market place is vast and varied and can range from ambulance services and agricultural companies through to car dealerships and funeral directors.

Autosmart is proud to be rated as “Excellent” on the review website TrustPilot. Comments range from “franchisees offering reliable and friendly service” to “going above and beyond to help their customers”.  And now more than ever Autosmart franchisees are playing a crucial role in their local communities, helping businesses, customers and staff stay clean and safe in the fight against Covid-19. An impressive 98% of the Autosmart network has remained open during the pandemic supplying essential hygiene products to businesses and helping in the communities that they are very much part of. 

From Richard Bostock in Durham donating barrels of vehicle wash to the Ambulance Service to Matt Rawicki in West Cornwall delivering hygiene packages on the doorsteps of their local community, Autosmart franchisees are friendly local business owners, on hand to provide quality cleaning products, cost saving systems and world-class expertise.
