CHELMSFORD ACCIDENT REPAIR SPECIALISTS JOINS FIX AUTO NETWORK
Fix Auto UK’s national expansion has continued as Essex-based Chelmsford Accident Repair Specialists became the latest independent repairer to join the network. The new franchisee will operate as Fix Auto Chelmsford.
Owned and managed by Jason Rickett, the 13,500 sq ft facility situated in the heart of the city combines a traditional bodyshop with an express repair system and currently repairs up to 45 vehicles a week.
With official manufacturer approvals from Mazda, Suzuki and Hyundai and already serving major motor insurers, the bodyshop - which was established in 1993 by Jason and his now retired father David - offers motorists a one-stop shop repair, service and MOT facilities.
Jason, said: “Having been part of Fix Auto’s support network for some time, I’ve been pleased by what I’ve seen. The calibre and profile of the network is impressive, and while we are firmly established here in Chelmsford, I’ve realised we will benefit from the extra support Fix Auto provides to allow us to continue to grow and develop. I want to be part of a group that provides national coverage and Fix Auto UK provides that opportunity.”
Ian Pugh, of Fix Auto UK, said: “Taking our relationship with Jason and his team from our support network into to a fully-branded Fix Auto bodyshop is yet another major success for us. Here we have a repairer who has, effectively, experienced first-hand the level of service we, as a network, provide and has opted to join our full network.
“Our ultimate ambition is to create a fully branded UK-wide network, and the fact that Jason has opted to follow this path and reap the benefits of becoming a Fix Auto repairer speaks volumes for our offering. In geographic terms, the business is perfectly placed as we look to build our coverage in the Essex and East Anglia regions.”
