The UK’s leading franchise network of accredited smart vehicle paint repairers, Revive! has opened in the Isle of Wight.
For the first time, private motorists and car dealerships across the island can access a full range of top quality mobile car bodywork and alloy wheel paint repair services managed by Ryde man Josh Willis.
"Up until now if you wanted to get a bumper scuff or wheel scrape repaired on the Isle of Wight we had to take the car to a bodyshop or hope that the paint colour was one that the few independent car sprayers could match. Nobody was offering a full, professional, mobile service.
Revive! is very popular on the mainland, and together with my business partner Keith Betteley we saw the opportunity to set up Revive! Isle of Wight to bring the top quality, award winning service here."
The business opened in September and is experiencing very high levels of demand.
"We have been delighted with the Island’s response. We are already working with several of the main dealerships and the diary is almost fully booked until the middle of November. Word is getting round about the quality of our work and we are looking forward to meeting more garage owners and private motorists as we grow our customer base."
Mark Llewellyn, managing director of Revive!, said:
"We are continually looking to expand the Revive! network so we can provide the highest level of service to our customers. We have been wanting to have a presence on the Isle of Wight for some time, but were prepared to wait until we found the right calibre of franchisee. In Keith and Josh, we have the perfect match of business acumen and ambition and wish them every success as they build Revive! Isle of Wight."
All Revive! technicians are fully trained to approved Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) standards.
