A FORMER car sales executive has opened a new business in town.
John Carter, 53, is bringing the Revive! franchise to the borough – a provider of minor paint and bodywork repairs for vehicles.
John will own and manage the business which only uses repair technicians accredited by the Institute of the Motor Industry.
With a keen interest in cars, John sought out a business opportunity where he could take a more hands on approach with the added benefit of being his own boss.
He said: “I’ve always wanted to run my own business and fully control what happens around me.
“My aim is to earn a reputation for offering the best mobile bodyshop service in the region. I will work hard to establish myself, earn a good reputation and build a solid base of work.”
John has high ambitions for his business, which provides quality, cost effective repairs at a time and place to suit customers, usually within a few hours and costing less than the average insurance policy excess.
John added: “There are always going to be opportunities for a business like Revive! because people are always going to have scuffs and scrapes on their vehicles,” he says.
In time I hope to expand the business from ‘one man in a van’ to a fleet of vehicles servicing the wider area.”
Revive! works with car dealerships, fleet and lease companies, insurance companies and the general public. For more information contact John on tel: 07792 078681
