We could not be any more thrilled with the work - and just as importantly, the service - Jim and Caroline provided! A tough repair of deep gouges on the rear door and quarterpanel from a brick wall, and on top of an unknown previous poor quality repair, they beautifully completed the work, matched the paint, and the entire side (multiple panels) are blended so seamlessly we can't tell there was ever damage. Their responsiveness, accessibility, and pickup/dropoff service - leaving their courtesy car in our driveway! - could not make this any easier. We googled Chips Away on recommendation from a colleague, and can't believe our good fortune that Jim and Caroline own this franchise in our area. Please patronize their business! We wish them all the very best! And are grateful we have our forever scratch and dent people.


Had a very speedy quotation the day after I had made enquiries. Communications were excellent and all times were kept. Was offered a car while my car was being repaired. Repair itself was very good. Definitely recommend Jim and Caroline Clennell at Stroud branch.


Great and honest service. Much cheaper than bodypaint shops yet still providing high quality workmanship! Thank you Jim and Caroline Clennell!


Excellent work ethic, great results! - I wouldn't hesitate to use Jim Clennell again, I'm very pleased with the end resulting paint repairs!


Excellent service from Caroline and Jim in Stroud. A rather noticeable bumper scuff completely removed as if by magic. Would recommend Chips Away Stroud to anyone!


Really good service, quick to quote and great contact throughout. Very professional.


Jim did an outstanding job repairing a pretty deep scuff on the top of my Aston Martin's front left wheel arch. Would recommend him for any car paint repair work, very impressive. Thank you. Andy


Most impressed with everything to do with ChipsAway right from the get go. The important thing is the standard of work which really was excellent. I am very pleased with the repairs and would not hesitate to recommend Caroline & Jim to friends and family. Furthermore I will use them again should the need arise. It was a pleasure to do business.


Great service and end result was fantastic, would highly recommend these guys


I contacted ChipsAway and got a quick response. They were able to come out quickly and at a convenient time for me. Everything was explained to me prior to the work being carried out and at a great price. I received excellent customer service. He was very thorough and my car looks brand new again. I can't thank you enough!
