The second time I 've used 'Chips Away' in the form of Jim Clennell, I'm completely Satisfied with his work and the system! On a personal note Jim is very personable and great to deal with and I will be very happy to use him again, should the occasion arise!


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


Excellent service and repair from Stroud branch: Clennell Vehicle Repairs


Jim and Caroline (Stroud) have been fantastic - so communicative in the run up to, during, and after the repairs. The price was very reasonable, and the service excellent. I certainly recommend them highly and will no doubt call on their services regularly.


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.


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


Excellent level of service! Very prompt in coming out to look at our car and sending us the quote. Friendly and helpful, which is what you need when trusting someone with your car. The level of work carried out was outstanding! There is absolutely no trace of the original marks! We're very pleased with the level service received from Jim and Caroline. Definitely recommend!!


Scraped my front bumper due to driving like a clot, was bracing myself for a big bill but Jim from Chipsaway Stroud/Cirencester sorted it for a very reasonable price and the repair is absolutely immaculate with a perfect colour match - even if you were looking for it you wouldn't be able to spot it. Seriously impressive stuff,fixed perfectly with a very friendly service to boot.


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!


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.
