Rochdale opens Fix & Go

Phil and Wendy Ewbank, owners of Fix Auto Rochdale, have officially declared their new Fix Auto Fix & Go express repair facility open.

Over £1 million has been invested in creating the standalone express repair centre in a unit adjacent to Fix Auto Rochdale’s existing bodyshop, which also features meeting rooms and offices. The open-plan, 11,000sqft workshop features a Junair four-bay multi-booth spraybooth. Coupled with a raft of state-of-the-art equipment, the new facility geared for two-day repair provision.

The new site takes repair capacity across the business’ two operations to 60 vehicles per week.

Commenting on the project, Phil said, ‘I’m a great believer that if you’re going to do something you have to do it right, and I firmly believe that we have achieved our goal in developing a class-leading express repair centre.

‘I’ve previously shared my thoughts that there’s clearly a shift to less severe damage on vehicles and by operating the Fix & Go model in conjunction with our traditional bodyshop, we are confident that we will be able to cater for this growing market segment and further improve our service delivery all-round.’

Ian Pugh, managing director of Fix Auto UK, said, ‘You have to congratulate Phil and his team on an outstanding development. I am confident that this site will deliver excellent performance to our customers.’
