Optic-Kleer is one of the largest independent windscreen repair-only companies in the UK. It offers high-quality repairs to private and corporate customers, and has a well-deserved reputation for excellence of customer service. The repairs are normally at no cost to the customer (subject to insurance cover). Moreover, our quality service has been recognised by many insurance companies and they often refer customers to us.

Prior to the launch of your own franchise, you will participate in our initial training programme which takes place at the head office in Boston, Lincolnshire. This is where you will learn how to repair a chip/crack in a windscreen. In addition to the initial training you will have mentoring with one of our experienced technicians who will help you turn the workshop training into reality with real earnings and actual hands-on repairs on real customers’ cars. Not only are you given hands-on training on how to repair windscreens, we help set up the business for you including your company and VAT registration. We will provide half board accommodation, so you can arrive with no expenses and leave with a fully functional business. Optic-Kleer has an established market which means you will earn from day one.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
Optic-Kleer franchisees work mainly from supermarket and various DIY hardware store carparks. The bookings for this are made through head office with the respective supermarket. Franchisees are able to book several weeks in advance so their work plan can be managed effectively. An online diary is shown on the Optic-Kleer website for all franchisees. Franchisees also now have a choice of being “on call” in their area. Normally a franchisee will book a particular supermarket for a week at a time. Franchisees also receive direct enquiries from our website or telephone. Customers can now receive reminders to go and have their windscreen chip repaired by a certain franchisee on a particular day. These can be arranged with the customer directly.
