Meet the owner

Brian and Amanda Palmer

Brian and Amanda Palmer have been with the ChipsAway network since 2013, starting as mobile specialists, and later expanding into a ChipsAway Car Care Centre. In 2018, Brian and Amanda were thrilled to be the proud winners of the coveted Franchisee of the Year Award, presented at the annual ChipsAway conference held at the Celtic Manor Resort. 


Well first of all I would like to say a massive thank you the work you have done is brilliant and my car looks great. The service you offer was 100% from the first phone call right up until I collected my car an absolute pleasure to deal with you and Amanda. This is not s word of a lie I actually recommended you to two of my friends at the Gym today so hopefully you will have two new customers and you can rest assured I will continue to sing your praises and recommend whenever possible keep up the good work you are doing a grand job.


The work is completed on my Volvo C30 LS58 OYK and it looks good. Thank you for quick response to my order. I have passed on your name and details to a John Lewis van driver, who was delivering goods to me. He lives in Letchworth and I gave him your Christmas card from last year with your details on. Apparently his wife’s car needs a repair. Hope he gets in touch with you as I told him how pleased I was with previous work. I am happy for you to use my name as a very satisfied customer.


Just back from holiday , to find that you have carried out the repair to my Kia Soul as agreed, thanks so much for your prompt attention and an excellent job. I will have no problems in recommending you service to anyone.


Always been welcomed even if Brian and Amanda not immediately available. Works carried out excellent, as is the service. They do more than they say on the tin by the way.


I received a quote within hours of visiting your workshop, the admin ladies were very helpful and efficient at find a suitable time to book my car in for the work, your technician turned up exactly when you said he would and did a fabulous job so where I had a nasty gouge across two panels I now have a smooth shiny car - thank you so much for taking the stress out of what could have been a big drain on my time.


Your work is great. Very professional and done within 6 hours. Fantastic ! Thank you very much !


We are delighted that our car is restored to its former glory. The paint matches exactly and you are not aware that there has been a repair. The service has been prompt and efficient both times that we have had work done. Thank you.


I hope I’ve sent you a 5 star review but it didn’t click off when I pressed done. In fact done didn’t light at all. Sufficient to say we thanked you for your speedy and efficient service and said we were highly satisfied with the result. We also said we would not hesitate to recommend you in the Harpenden area. If you wish to enter this yourself you are welcome to do so.


Smashing team, work brilliant, nothing too much trouble.


Nice, helpful people! Repaired my car last year and I was very happy with the work. Today I awoke to find my car had been sprayed (very badly as a piece of art) with what I think to be a rude picture. I went down to the St. Albans garage (where previous work carried out) and they removed the artwork right away without charge. Thank you. I recommend them for the quality of work, customer service and just being nice and helpful
