History of ARC Blackpool

Fylde Coast ARC was established in 1982 by our Managing Director David Hyland and is a professional independent repair operation dealing with all car and light commercial accident and Insurance repair work. From small beginnings of just one apprentice, David Hyland’s passion for repairing vehicles has enabled him to build a company with 36 employees servicing some of the largest Insurance Companies in the UK.

As a family run business we strive to maintain a very personal and friendly service for all of our customers and because we have been in this industry for over 30 years we have a well respected reputation with Insurance Companies and other organisations.  Our aim is to offer all of our customers the reassurance of a first class repair with the minimum of fuss and inconvenience – a service which is second to none.  Our professional, friendly and helpful staff will provide all the advice and assistance you need in order to make the whole experience as pleasant as possible.

The key component of our strategy to repair accident damaged vehicles to the very highest level is the British Standards Kitemark.  The Kitemark is already well recognised and trusted as a symbol of Quality Assurance in many other industries in the UK and inspires customer confidence in the high levels of service and best business practices that come with obtaining it. Fylde Coast operates an ongoing training and skills programme for all employees which has seen the majority of our team achieve the ATA qualifications and pass advanced certificates in their own disciplines.
