For leading cosmetic smart repair franchisor Revive! striving for the highest standards applies to everything they do - which is why they’ve chosen award winning film maker Luke Taylor to produce a series of franchise recruitment videos.
Revive on the road shows real franchisees in their workplace talking about their experiences running a Revive! cosmetic smart repair franchise. The first video features Paul Shilston from Redditch.
Said Revive! managing director Mark Llewellyn:
"There’s loads of videos out there about smart repair and franchising but most are incredibly boring and come across as amateur DIY footage.
We’ve worked hard to help drive up standards in the cosmetic smart repair industry so it makes sense that the videos we produce reflect that commitment to quality and excellence. We’re really pleased with the work Luke has done for us so far and look forward to working with him on the rest of the series."
Bath based Luke Taylor won a Royal Television Society Award in 2015 for his entry into the short film category with a film called Nan and has worked with the production company Wall to Wall.
Revive! franchisees benefit from top quality training at the company’s own IMI approved training academy and enjoy a high level of ongoing business support and mentoring from the Revive! head office team. Territories are designed to allow franchisees build a multi-van business not just be a ‘man in a van who paints cars’ and a significant proportion of work comes from national accounts.
Revive! has the largest network of accredited mobile smart repairers in the UK specialising in repairing scuffs and scrapes to vehicle bodywork and alloy wheels. Customers include car dealerships, manufacturers and private motorists. Cosmetic repair is a top quality, cost effective and time-saving alternative to taking the vehicle to a bodyshop. Costing far less than the average insurance policy excess, the work is carried out at a time and place to suit the customer, minimising vehicle downtime and protecting the owner’s no claims bonus.
