How we complete a ChipsAway repair


  • A cool masterclass in chipology! Tom Cole beautifully restored an extensive bumper scruff and my injured pride into the bargain! I was astonished how such a nasty prang can be made in just a single day on my own premises. Nothing is too much trouble for Tom, and his top professionalism and attention to detail ensures a perfect job. Don't go anywhere else - Tom's the man!

  • Tom Cole from Bournemouth was very helpful, he explained what needed to be done clearly and came out to asses the damage with no charge for me to approve the quote. All in very good time. Great service, very helpful and very polite. Very highly recommended.

  • Tom Cole was thoroughly professional from original estimate to completion of the paint repair job to my Qashqai. He arrived promptly on the agreed date and time, and finished just within the 5 hours quoted. I am very pleased with the finish, and would certainly use him again, though hope I won't need to!!

  • Just like new again! Chips Away are probably the oldest name in mobile auto paint repairs and will probably be around for as long as a service like this exists. That's for a good reason, they trust their name to professionals like Tom Cole. My Mercedes was scraped in a car park and as it's my pride and joy, must be repaired... Read more

  • Dave and Tom Cole( Poole) did a fantastic job of repairing my bumper scuff. Very professional on the phone, very punctual and a fantastic result. It's a delight to do business with people who obviously thrive on doing the job right.

  • Tom Cole was very professonal and extremely helpful throughout the whole process from from initial inquiry and quote through to the booking and the actual repair. He arrived on time, finished the job almost to the minute of the four hours quoted, matched the paint colour exactly and my car now looks like new. I would highly recommend David and Tom Cole of Chips away Poole.

  • I would like to write a thank you for the work that was done by Tom Cole. Tom repaired scratches on my 1 year old brand new Clio. He was polite and courteous from the first meeting and maintained clear contact about arrival dates and times. He did the work on a Saturday to suit my schedule and was prompt on the day. He did an... Read more

  • Trusty Tom Cole and his father David are the best in the business for fixing scratches and scuffs, and meticulous in the standard of their work. I’ve used their services for many years, and on every occasion I’ve been delighted beyond belief. Quality and attention to detail is extraordinary, and the distress of having scuffed or... Read more

  • Chips Away Tom Cole (technician) carried out a repair to the car door after it was damaged in a car park by an unknown vehicle. The repair was of the highest quality and the paint match flawless an excellent mobile service well done Chips Away. Carey

  • I am just contacting you to let you know how pleased I am with the repair you carried out to the front of my Volvo earlier this week. Several people who had seen the damage before and the repaired area since are very impressed with the way this has been done, especially the superb colour match to the existing. This certainly seems... Read more

  • Brilliant job well done. I am very pleased with the attention both I and my car received from David and Tom. It was a pleasure to see how they applied themselves to the job, methodical and thorough.

  • Tom did a brilliant job on the paint work. Would recommend him to anyone who has got a paint problem with their vehicles.

  • Great Efficient service - we have used Tom & Dave at Poole/Bournemouth twice now - very professional

  • Excellent job for a reasonable price. Tom arrived on time and did an excellent job of removing the scratches on my rear bumper. Looks as good as new. It was all very convenient as he did the repair at my home. His was also the best quote I had for the job.

  • Chips Away team Tom & David ( Bournemouth & Poole area ) arrived on time. Performed a first class job on some scratches on rear door panel. Final paint match was perfect. Now back in showroom condition again. I would thoroughly recommend Tom & David Cole. Very skilled and conscientious workers.

  • These guys are fantastic. The quality of the workmanship on my wife's two year old Range Rover was top notch there is no trace of the previous damage. The colour match and finish can only be described as factory finish. Tom arrived at the house bang on time (I am a bit OCD about this kind of thing) and then talked me through what he... Read more

  • Used ChipsAway Poole (Tom) to deal with rear bumper scuff. His painstaking attention to detail was amazing and the result is the bumper looks as good as new. Thoroughly recommend

  • Excellent service start to finish. I sent a photo of the damage to the rear nearside arch via WhatsApp. I had a swift response, with a quote for the work. We settled on a day-I gave two dates when I knew I would be around morning or afternoon. Told around 8, but arrived 8.20. Started quite soon after. Lovely job! And I'm sure cheaper than a garage repair.

  • Tom Cole has just finished my car - to perfection - he was only satisfied in doing a first class job. The first scrape on my treasured BMW and you are concerned about the result of someone mending it (for the same price on my previous car a local repair shop did a rough job and you could see it). Worry not I am very pleased with... Read more
