Having worked in the auto salvage/repair business for a few years, I know how most shops are. Going there can be an intimidating experience for the average car owner. You don’t really know if you’re getting overcharged, and the place is usually a bit greasy, maybe a little smokey, the people aren’t that nice, etc. It’s a common theme among auto repair shops.
Well, the HiQ network of garages in the UK decided to get in touch with the consulting/rebranding company Fitch to see if they could give themselves a better image. It looks like it worked.
Check out the pictures and see for yourself:
Their first concept center opened up earlier this year in Nottingham and it’s striking. The whole idea was to revolutionize the way repair shops operate, and give them a nicer face. It looks like the Commerce Bank of garages, with glass walls so customers can see into the work area and nice clean floors and walls.
