Tony McElhone, current County Durham franchisee tells us:Franchise Winner Logos

“I’ve been an Autosmart franchisee for nearly 10 years and I wouldn’t choose another business over this.  I’ve built up a really loyal and great round of regular repeat customers in the County Durham area who are spread out over lots of different sectors, including haulage & transportation, agricultural, car dealerships, garages and engineering companies to name a few.

“I’m lucky to be given the chance to buy the Autosmart territory that is exactly where I live, so I am not leaving the network, just moving closer to home!

“I pride myself on the honest, reliable and friendly service I provide to my customer base in the areas in and around Blaydon, Dunston, The Team Valley, Birtley, Chester-le-Street, Consett, Stanley, Langley Park, Spennymoor, Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe  and will be sad to say farewell to them.  I will remain the Autosmart franchisee for this area until the new starter joins, so that I can personally introduce them to the customers and ensure that the handover is a smooth and efficient process.  If you’re interested in becoming a franchisee with Autosmart in the County Durham area, then give the franchising team at Head Office a call on 01543 482 926.”

“Autosmart franchisees are our business partners; we train and support our franchisees to quickly build profitable, sustainable, recession-proof businesses.” – Sophie Atkinson, Autosmart Managing Director.
