FIX AUTO PLYMOUTH OWNER OPENS A FIX & GO SITE IN PAIGNTON
Daryll Cain, owner of Fix Auto Plymouth, has opened his second bodyshop in the seaside town of Paignton in the South West of England.
The former motor engineer-turned-bodyshop owner and his co-directors have invested more than £200,000 in developing the new Fix & Go express repair centre that will operate as Fix Auto Paignton.
The new 5,000 sq ft bodyshop has the capacity to repair more than 140 vehicles a month and has been developed to provide support of their main ‘hub’ site - Fix Auto Plymouth - which is currently repairing more than 350 vehicles a month.
The new site has been equipped with a Junair spraybooth capable of accommodating LCVs, along with a range of the latest fast repair equipment to allow the business to turn around repairs within a 48-hour timeframe.
Commenting on the investment, Daryll said: “The Fix & Go concept is extremely exciting and works perfectly for us by allowing us to operate a satellite bodyshop that will provide a fast repair service to customers in Torquay and Paignton – areas that we already service from our main site.
He further explained: “Like so many repairers, we find that the larger, heavier repairs can slow up the process at our main site. By opening an express repair facility we will triage our work accordingly and will be able to deliver an improved service and faster cycle times.”
Ian Pugh of Fix Auto UK, said: “I am delighted that Daryll has made this significant investment in order to provide additional repair capacity to the South West region. The number of Fix & Go express repair centres now stands at eight, and I am pleased to say that further sites are scheduled to be opened by the end of the year.”
