Why Start A Franchise?

Aside from being a credible automotive repair company offering a service that there is a significant market for, DWV is also very experienced in franchising as well! With a strong brand that is known nationwide for excellent customer service and quality of work, DWV is the ideal choice for someone who shows the drive and determination to become successful.

It may be worth checking other franchisors if they offer all of the following, whether they are in the automotive arena or not, prior to making your decision.

  • Part of the AmTrust/Car Care Plan family (the UK’s leading provider of vehicle warranties)
  • Large territories (at least 400k population), enough to penetrate and grow a substantial business, with multiple vehicles
  • Marketing levy collected monthly from the network, with 100% used towards increasing brand recognition – with network input as to how it is spent
  • Open ended matched funding available to all franchisees where they carry out localised marketing activities promoting the DWV brand
  • A Franchise Forum that provides input and is actively encouraged to put forward ideas to improve the business for the benefit of everyone
  • Rebate opportunity on any private sales over and above the agreed targets. This equates to a 3% refund on any sales above the target at year end – this is open ended. In 2022, over £21k was shared between 78% of the Network who over achieved their targets for private sales
  • Opportunity to reduce private fee % year on year dependent on achieving entry into different private sales banding levels in line with the Franchise Agreement
  • Credit control carried out on your behalf, which is included in the management fees paid
  • 20% of all corporate work guaranteed to be allocated to you in the first year of trading, with payments paid to the Franchisee at month end, regardless of if has been paid (with a clawback if not paid within 90 days), which helps cashflow
  • Opportunity for auction work to be offered to the business, subject to availability in the owned area, and achieving Contractual Service levels

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.
