Getting Started

Franchise Costs

As an automotive franchisor, DWV will require payment from the franchisee to cover various costs. This will get you everything you need to start your journey to franchise success. What DWV offers is an established brand in a thriving industry, and we will help you become your own boss by giving you the confidence and knowledge you need to flourish.

This all sounds good, so how much is a DWV franchise going to cost me?

The cost to purchase your licence, initial training and uniform is:


+VAT (which is reclaimable)

Other costs to consider

Van costs vary dependent on deposit available, and if you want to include van livery and equipment into the total cost and spread this over the loan period. By doing this, you will be able to retain working capital in your business. We can discuss this directly specific to your own personal circumstances.

As a proven franchisor, DWV has credibility with key lenders and many are prepared to fund up to 70% of the cost (subject to status).

As franchisor, we are always on hand to help and assist with any funding support you require both initially and throughout your growth with DWV.

What return can I achieve?

Great question! This is seriously dependent on how much you apply yourself – the want and desire to become successful. As franchisor, we supply the tools, processes and best practices for you to succeed in business. We cannot supply the want and desire, however we will only award franchise licences to people who we see that hunger in!

It is realistic to achieve over £500k turnover with a healthy bottom-line profit. The timescale is dependent on working capital available.

It is easier to talk either face to face or virtually regarding this, so why not click the ‘enquire’ button at the bottom of the page? There is absolutely no obligation. We need to ensure you are right for DWV, and we are right for you!

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.
