Euro Repar Car Service launches UK network

Garage franchise is launching in the UK

Published:  13 April, 2017

The network, supported operationally by PSA Groupe, aims to add around 600 UK independent garages to its existing pan-European group of more than 2,500 facilities across France, Spain, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands. The minimum requirement is two manned ramps, a separate reception. A specified level of purchases is amongst the key criteria.

Colin Start, head of marketing for parts and service for the PSA Groupe says: "Ours is a proposition unlike any other in the UK, with a partnership approach that has deliberately kept the cost and complexity of entry very low: garages are not even required to change their name."

He adds: "Euro Repar Car Service has built a reputation on consistent standards, transparent pricing, local convenience and especially, trust. We are seeking to work with forward-looking owners who not only share these values, but who are prepared to take the next step and benefit from the huge experience and support we can offer - being part of a growing network with national and international, business and marketing support"

In return for business support, future garage members will form the key sales channel for the All Makes Eurorepar range available now, and the new supplier branded range of parts, which will be introduced later this year. These will be supplied via 28 new and dedicated parts distributors who are signed to Euro Repar Car Service as partners.
