ChipsAway are the originators of the SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair process. We are a full BFA members with IMI, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations and affiliation with 3M and BVRLA. ChipsAway has been established in the UK for over twenty five years. We now have the largest network of over 200 repair specialists in the UK, who deliver the highest quality of car body repairs. Our services include car paint scratch repairs, bumper scuff repairs, car dent repairs and alloy wheel repairs, and eliminates the inconvenience and potential expense of using a body shop. ChipsAway was acquired in 2008 by international multi-brand franchisor Franchise Brands. Franchise Brands is also parent company of established brands Metro Rod, Metro Plumb, Filta, Ovenclean and Barking Mad. All Franchise Brands’ child companies are also full members of the BFA. Franchise Brands has notable strengths in areas such as marketing, franchise recruitment and franchise support, and the group’s strategy is to grow organically through expanding existing brands as well as through further acquisitions.


No previous experience is required to become a certified ChipsAway Franchisee, as we provide a comprehensive four-week initial training course alongside our specialist training team at our bespoke IMI accredited facility. The accredited course is backed by further advanced training during your first six months, with unlimited ongoing technical support. As a full British Franchise Association (BFA) member with IMI, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations and affiliation with 3M and BVRLA, you won’t find better quality training, products and ongoing sales and marketing support.

What will I do as a Franchisee

As a ChipsAway business owner, you will visit customers locally in your mobile workshop, offering high quality, value-for-money, everyday car damage repairs, including paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs and minor dents. With ChipsAway’s flexible business plan, some franchisees develop their business further and operate from multiple vans with employees, or move the operation into a Car Care Centre, with or without a mobile workshop, which can increase both the potential number of repairs that can be carried out, and the average repair value. The ChipsAway network enjoy meeting and delighting new customers on a daily basis!
