Activate Accident Repair to expand in the South-East with new Hampton centre
March 4, 2024

Activate Accident Repair will open a state-of-the-art repair centre in Hampton, Greater London this month.

The Group’s 10th site will create much-needed additional repair capacity in London and the South-East, where demand for repair services is high.

Activate Accident Repair is the repair division of Activate Group, which offers accident management services to fleets and insurers through its sopp+sopp and Motor Repair Network businesses, and next-day parts and consumables via Activate Parts.

Like all Activate Accident Repair centres, the Hampton site is purpose-built and fitted with the very latest repair technology. It will begin completing repairs in March and can handle the full range of modern vehicles, including EVs, hybrids and LCVs. 

At 18,000 square feet, Hampton is a significant addition to Activate Accident Repair’s footprint in London and the South-East, which already includes a state-of-the-art centre at Kings Langley.

Hampton boasts a strategic location, benefiting from excellent transport links to the motorway system. The addition of its specialist LCV capability enhances existing capacity in the area, catering to the high demand for best-quality LCV repairs.

The centre will offer dedicated repair capacity to Activate Group’s fleet and insurer customers, as well as direct deployment work for selected partners through the business’ recently launched Repair As A Service proposition.

Hannah Wilcox, CEO, said: “This new centre is part of our ongoing strategy to combine guaranteed, owned capacity with our network of bodyshop groups and independent repairers across the UK.

“Activate Group is on a strong growth trajectory, and we anticipate a continual increase in the number of repairs we manage this year. This growth ensures ample opportunities for our valued repair partners, as well as our own dedicated bodyshops.

“Looking ahead, expanding the strong partnerships we have with our network remains a top priority. We are also committed to investing in and enhancing our owned repair capacity in high demand areas to ensure that we can effectively meet the needs of our fleet and insurance customers.”
