ChipsAway has Achieved its Best Ever Month of Customer Leads

ChipsAway is celebrating its best ever month for customer leads to its network after generating 9,000 leads for its franchise owners in March.  The automotive paintwork repair franchise has generated just under 20,000 business leads for its network of 350 franchise owners in the first quarter of this year, which is up by nearly 60 per cent on its like-for-like figures in 2008.

Lloyd Evans, Chief Executive of ChipsAway, said:  “Despite predictions of doom and gloom, demand for our services is currently going through the roof.  We believe this is partly due to the effects of the credit crunch.  Our franchise owners are telling us that motorists seem to be investing in repairing existing vehicles, either with a view to keeping them on the road for longer or to sell them for a better price in order to take advantage of some of the great deals around on new cars.  SMART repair technology keeps a car looking good for longer, extends its life and maintains its value – our customers clearly recognise this and our franchise owners are feeling the benefit.”

Carrie Blenkinsop, ChipsAway Coventry franchise owner, added:  “We’re experiencing a ‘mini boom’.  In 10 years, we have never been so busy.  It’s weird considering the current market but demand for our services is crazy at present, particularly on used cars.”
