About Me

I am an Ayrshire born lad from a small fishing town called Girvan just down the coast from Ayr on the southwest coast of Scotland. I live now in Dumfries in the Barnhill area of the town with my wife, children, and little pug dog, Bear. My working life started off in the motor trade introduced to me by my late father who owned and operated his own coachworks automotive repair centre in the town of Girvan. This is where I was to spend many hours learning how to do basic tasks in a collision repair work. Fast forward to 2019, when I qualified as an IMI certified spray-painter and started ChipsAway Dumfries and Carlisle. I enjoy my work and get a great deal of job satisfaction from taking something that is damaged and repairing it to good quality and standard. I believe in going the extra mile to ensure my customers receive a smooth and efficient level of customer service along with nothing but great repair to their car.

How we complete a ChipsAway repair


  • My car was bumped last Tuesday and I called ChipsAway to come and have a look at the damage – within two hours my local specialist had come out and given me an estimate and I booked the work in for Friday. A young man arrived on time, was pleasant and polite and did a fantastic job on my car. I was very impressed. I will... Read more

  • Can I just say how impressed I am with your service. Within minutes of emailing my enquiry I had a phone call from my local ChipsAway specialist. He has already called round to give me an estimate, and will carry out the repair within the next few days. Brilliant – and thank you!

  • Chris Love has done the most extraordinary job repairing damage to our motorhome bumper. It is absolutely perfect. Chris is not just an extremely skilled technician but also a delight to meet. I can not recommend him highly enough. Thank you Chris!

  • What a pity only 5 stars are available! Chris Love's professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. Such a hard worker and a perfectionist. He repaired scratches and scrapes to the front and rear bumper of our grandson's car. The result is amazing!

  • From arriving at the house(got here bang on time) Chris introduced himself and was a really cheerful and pleasant chap, he had a look at my vehicle and got straight to work,i left him to get on and said if you want anything just give me a shout,i never heard from him most of the day. When i did it was to say finished come and see... Read more

  • I am what you might call "Seriously OCD" about my cars finish and was gutted when I took a chunk out of the lip of my front bumper and some deep scratches. Chris did a phenomenal job on it! The repair is seamless, and the paint a perfect match. Working outside in the weather is not without its challenges (flies, wind, rain, dust... Read more

  • Chris was on site just after 8-00am & didn't leave till well after 6-00 pm he is one of those guys time doesn't matter, his workmanship is perfection he lost a bit of time because something blowing in the wind landed on the wet clear coat ,but instead of just removing as much as he could he let it dry rubbed it down & cut & polished...

  • Chris Love did an excellent job. He picked up a couple of previously unnoticed minor paintwork issues and resolved these for us on the day, preventing an other wise expensive future problem. Pleasant, knowledgeable, informative and personable. Efficient and hard worker, kept working all day . Attention to detail was superb. Created... Read more

  • Scraped the corner of back bumper, sent photos and Chris got is touch with a quote, turned up when he said, and did a great job, you wouldn’t have guessed where it had been damaged, paint job was a perfect match, really pleased with the work, and I never had to leave the house, would recommend if you are unfortunate to damage your paintwork.

  • I cannot speak highly enough of the work that Chris did on my car. He is a master of his craft! From start to finish he kept me informed what was happening through those first months of lockdown and got back to me as soon as he could to rearrange the repair work. He kept exactly to the guidelines so there was no problem at all. The... Read more

  • The repair to my car was easy to set up with ChipsAway and was dealt with very promptly. After sending some photos I was able to speak to the technician directly to discuss in more detail and I received a fair estimate the next day. The job was carried out at my convenience within 10 days. The job was more complex than a simple... Read more
