Nathan Holmes, Revive! Cambridge, Goes for Gold!

August 2012 will go down in UK history as the month that team GB did the country proud in the Olympics – and for Nathan Holmes, owner of Revive! Cambridge it also marks the date he smashed the company record for monthly sales!

Revive! Cambridge - Nathan HolmesNathan from St Ives set up Revive! Cambridge five years ago, a mobile repair service specialising in repairing minor scuffs and scrapes to vehicle bodywork and alloy wheels. He started with just one van and now there are five on the road. In August the company carried out £41,400 worth of work for local car dealerships, fleet management companies and private motorists.

He said: "Month by month I could see the sales figure rising, but even I was staggered when I realised that we were heading for our biggest total ever, beating the previous month’s figures by over £10,000."

"It’s not just luck – we have all worked extremely hard to ensure that the business grows through reputation. Customer service and quality of work is the key to our success. I make it my policy to speak with customers properly, and train my technicians to do the same. Our work has to be of the highest quality, and everyone knows that I will be checking on jobs to make sure that standards are maintained. If I am not happy with the work that has been carried out we’ll do it again, and people know that."

Revive! has the largest network of smart repairers in the UK and is one of the few IMI accredited training centres in the country carrying out work for private motorists and the trade. As the preferred supplier of SMART repairs major car dealerships and fleet operators its customers include Alfa Romeo Fiat, Lex Autolease and Mercedes.

Each technician owns his own business covering 105 regions throughout the country. The previous record was held by Revive! Luton for achieving sales of £30,000.

Commenting on the record month, Revive! Managing director Mark Llewellyn said: "What an achievement! Congratulations to Nathan and his team for delivering a phenomenal result. Revive! is the number one choice for professional, top quality smart repairs and our network just goes from strength to strength."

Smart (small to medium area repair technique) repair is a quality, cost effective and time-saving alternative to taking the vehicle to a bodyshop for minor paintwork repairs. Costing far less than most insurance policy excesses, the work is carried out at a time and place to suit the customer, minimising vehicle downtime and protecting the owner’s no claims bonus.
