Dent Wizard was established in the USA in the 1980s. Dent Wizard Ventures (DWV) is a major player in the SMART (Small Minor Accident Repair Technology) industry carrying out in excess of 200,000 jobs per year for both Corporate and Private customers. Impressively in 2020 despite the Pandemic and two months of lost business in April & May as a result, the Network increased turnover compared to 2019 and generated 71% of the overall turnover. With some of the Network exceeding 80% private work.
DWV provide quick and cost-effective repairs to minor cosmetic damage to car bodywork and alloy wheels, this is achieved through our Nationwide mobile Network of fully trained and experienced Franchised Technicians.
As you’d expect in a multi-million-pound business, your services will be in demand. You will service both trade (car dealerships, fleet & lease companies, insurance companies) and retail (general public) customers, you will use the most advanced and innovative products to produce quality repairs at a fraction of the cost of a body shop and a lot quicker too!
- Bumper scuffs & scrapes
- Alloy wheel damage
- Paint or bodywork scratches & chips

Trade customers value the quality and ease of service provided, giving them reassurance that their fleet is being taken care of by highly trained professionals. The general public loves the convenience of having their vehicles restored to their former glory, at home or at work.
Car Care Plan Warranty work
With both DWV and Car Care Plan being part of AmTrust, warranty work from CCP is received for both our Corporate Employed workforce and our Network – these volumes cannot be guaranteed or relied on however. Key to business success with DWV is growth by the franchisee on a localized basis, with our help.
DWV franchise territories are designed to facilitate growth to at least three vans. Your trading area is large and will include a strong core base of car dealerships and a MINIMUM residential population of 400,000 people (other franchisors are normally around the 250,000 mark).
