Fix Auto UK unveils new site

Fix Auto UK has appointed Fix Auto Wolverhampton to the network.

The new site compliments established Fix Auto UK repair centres in the region including Lichfield, Walsall, Wednesbury, Oldbury, Birmingham East and Kings Norton.

The repair centre has been developed by Denver Hughes, owner of MG Accident Repair Centre, who bought a neighbouring 7,000 sqft unit near his established business specifically for the Fix Auto UK network.

General manager Stuart Bone said: “We have been fortunate to taste a little of what Fix Auto UK can provide a business as we’ve acted as a repairer to support the network for some time. Having a taste of the network just wasn’t enough and yet, our owner wanted to create a specific standalone, brand new accident repair centre to operate as a Fix Auto franchise.

“We fully understood that to be part of the network we had to be totally immersed in it which meant being fully branded. The solution was simple, when the unit opposite to our existing site became available and allowed us to develop a separate, stand alone, repair centre and so Fix Auto Wolverhampton was born.

“Our Fix Auto UK customers will simply turn left when they enter the estate and will undergo the full Fix Auto experience; from being greeted by staff wearing branded uniforms, private parking and a brand-new reception. It has taken us some time and a serious investment, but we are now delighted to be finally fully immersed in the network.”

Ian Pugh, managing director of Fix Auto UK, said: “To experience the true benefits of being part of the network means coming on board as a fully branded franchise partner, it’s as clear and straight forward as that. Denver was reluctant to lose his business’s identity, which I fully respect, but wanted to join us as much as we wanted him to be part of the network. Undeterred he came to us with a solution by creating Fix Auto Wolverhampton out of a neighbouring unit. That level of commitment and determination to be part of the network really bodes well for our future.”
