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.


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!!


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.


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!


ChipsAway are First Class! What a brilliant job ChipsAway did on our car bodywork. On top of that, they went out of their way to minimise disruption to our daily routine and gave good honest advice about another repair we needed on a different vehicle. Thoroughly recommended.
