Working yourself to the bone to line someone else’s pocket is no fun. And combined with a poor work-life balance, a capped salary and a lack of autonomy, it’s easy to see why you might be fed up and looking for something new.
There’s no better time to become your own boss. With market leaders ChipsAway, you can wave goodbye to working hard for someone else’s gain, control your own diary, and reap your own rewards.
They offer a convenient, high-quality and cost-effective alternative to car body shops and use their renowned Small to Medium Area Repair Technology (SMART) to fix minor scratches, scuffs and dents to vehicles and alloys.

Whether you’re a professed petrol head or have little to no automotive knowledge, they will equip you with all the tools you need to run a successful operation.
In fact, over 90% of their network had no prior industry experience before joining them.
