We’ve operated our franchise model for over 20 years, with many of our network being part of the DWV team from the start.

Starting a franchise with DWV and with the Head Office team supporting you, this means you will be working with an established brand in a thriving industry. With roughly 33 million cars on the UK roads, it is a given that at some point, they will sustain some minor damage – damage that the team of DWV nationwide mobile technicians are able to repair.

As franchisor, we have been and still are the first choice for franchise opportunities within the Automotive industry, either as an Owner Operator or a Manager managing multiple technicians.

The key point with any business opportunity is we can give you all the tools and knowledge to grow a business – you have to have the “want” and desire to do just that.

We take pride in awarding franchises and are selective in our recruitment process. We aim to build long term relationships growing successful businesses with our franchisees. Become your own boss, and balance your personal and professional lives with an amazing opportunity to work for a leading brand in the automotive repair industry.

testimonials from our franchisees

Mike Mullin
I joined DWV as a franchise in June 2013, taking on the Cheshire and North Wales areas. The decision was a brave one as I had very little experience in car body repairs and didn’t, at the time, live there so it was a massive gamble. I was driven by my passion of cars, wanting to run my own business and be successful. Fast forward to now: I am still growing and making good money. I have a group of dealerships on board and I’m enjoying every minute. The decision to become a DWV Franchisee isn’t for everyone, but if you’re confident, keen to succeed and self-driven, you could build yourself a future.
Jim Crossland
The training was superb and the accounts support is invaluable. It’s your own business with no limits on how big you become. You’re not tied into buying products from the franchise – you are free to shop around to get the best deals. You’re buying into a big and trusted name in the business. If you have a problem of any description, there’s always a number of experienced people at your disposal. Overall, being part of DWV gives you a very professional image.
Stewart Finlay
The support I’ve received from DWV has really helped me grow my business. I now spend more time with the family than ever before. I would highly recommend joining DWV if you are an ambitious person looking to be your own boss.
Ian Wooffindin
I made the decision to become a DWV Franchisee in 2015. Initially I ran one vehicle, but demand was so high that I quickly needed a second vehicle. The business has gone from strength to strength and I now operate five vans. I would personally recommend that you consider a DWV franchise; the support, and particularly the credit control management services, are second to none.
Martin Nietrzebka
With the strength of the DWV brand behind me, the decision to purchase my own franchise was an obvious one. The business now operates three vehicles in the South Yorkshire area and continues to grow. I have no hesitation in recommending DWV as your chosen Franchisor, as they have been with me every step of the way.
