Motofix invests £2.5m to redefine post-accident repair experience in the Southwest

Brand-new ‘Prestige Paint and Body’ facility in Cirencester opens its doors to local motorists

Leading independent accident repair and bodyshop group, Motofix, has this week completed a £2.5m investment in the opening of its new ‘Prestige Paint and Body’ site in Cirencester that is redefining the post-accident repair experience for motorists in the Southwest.

The state-of-the-art facility delivers manufacturer-quality repairs and exemplary customer service levels to drivers of prestige vehicles in the region, and has been specified to meet a number of vehicle manufacturers’ exacting repair standards by using genuine parts and approved methods.

The site has already earned approvals from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and VW Group brands. An additional Jaguar Land Rover approval is pending.

Motofix’s significant investment in Cirencester has enabled superior processes, the latest equipment and tools, and world-class, brand- and model-specific technician training to be rolled out across what it is calling its “flagship centre of excellence” in the UK.

Motofix Chairman, Richard Tutt, believes the company has created a post-accident repair solution that is unique and gives owners of prestige vehicles in the Southwest region added choice.

He said: “Opening our first dedicated ‘Prestige Paint and Body’ site in Cirencester and making a significant investment in the region marks an important milestone in the development of the Motofix Group.

“Cirencester is our flagship centre of excellence and offers customers a ‘back to brand’ experience. We operate as an extension of the brand the motorist has chosen – providing a seamless transition from the dealer to us as Prestige.

“The fact we’ve already earned approvals from three of the world’s premium brands is testament to the quality of what we’ve created and the customer experience we’re providing.”

The Prestige Paint and Body experience is built on personal service and contact, as well as the guaranteed delivery of a first-class repair every time. Managing and personally overseeing the customer experience in Cirencester is Centre Manager, Kelly Watson.

She said: “Motofix Prestige offers an elevated customer journey. Our hand-picked team strive for excellence in every aspect of the customer experience. From the first welcome phone call to when keys are handed back, every detail is looked after by our first-class team. We sincerely believe the customer should choose who repairs their vehicle – it’s all about the journey.”
