ChipsAway is the UK's leading network of minor car body repair specialists. Many of their franchisees join the network because they are already so passionate about cars, and see the franchise as a great opportunity to turn their career into their hobby.
ChipsAway is rated very highly amongst their customers for their high-quality repair work (8.9 on Trustpilot in fact), so it’s no wonder they are regularly entrusted with cars of a much higher-than-average value, as well as specialist vehicle types.
Mark Burns, of ChipsAway Boston & Spalding, has had the pleasure of working on many beautiful cars. He reminisces:
"In my time as a ChipsAway technician I have repaired some really expensive cars such as a brand new £300,000 Bentley, and also cars as old as a 1968 Morris Oxford.
Repairing the Bentley was a little bit scary at first but with my experience you soon realise that it is no different to repairing a Ford Focus! They all have to be done right and they are all painted in the same way. There was however great satisfaction in knowing that I had repaired such an expensive car and also that the customer trusted the ChipsAway brand.
Repairing the Morris Oxford was probably one of my all-time favourite jobs. I got such a rush of job satisfaction in seeing something so old and worn out looking like new again. I was really proud of my work and the results, but I guess the best part of doing the job on that car was seeing the smile on the customers face once it was finished!"
One ChipsAway’s franchisee, Chris, is particularly passionate about vintage & classic vehicles, and has owned a number of all types for the last 40 years. He has got to know many likeminded owners and his high-quality work has not gone unnoticed by them, so he often has the chance to complete repairs on beautiful classic and vintage vehicles! His latest classic car repairs include a rare 1952 Jowett Jupiter, a 1967 Lambretta and a Jaguar XK14!
Talented film and TV animator Richard Dexter decided to make a radical life change last year, leaving his successful career to invest in a ChipsAway franchise. As Richard’s reputation as an animator grew, his work was constantly taking him away from his family and had even began to affect his health.
Richard loves cars and was keen to replace his desk job with working outdoors, so a ChipsAway Franchise immediately appealed to him:
"I really enjoyed working on the cars from the outset and becoming a ChipsAway franchisee has definitely been the right choice for me."

I’m absolutely thrilled with the way my business is going. I wanted something flexible, that was not massively expensive and which had the potential for growth. ChipsAway fit the bill and 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!Andy Cornell, franchisee since 2011
