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.

Really pleased with the repairs to my wheel. Drove me back home after dropping my car off, and bringing it back when done. Great job Jim and Caroline. Would recommend to anyone.

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!

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!

Mr. Charles Kail

We have used Jim & Caroline (Stroud) on several occasions to repair the company cars when the leases were up. They always arrive on time and the cars were returned when they were supposed to. The quality of the work is excellent

Sue Evans

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.

First Class - Needed several scuffs and scratches removed before car returned off lease. Contacted Jim Clennell (Stroud) who came round within hours to assess the job and fix date for doing it. On due date (a perishing day!), there on the dot and job done within a couple of hours, including several additional scuffs we found as the job progressed. Job done very professionally and the results are remarkable. Many thanks Jim, for a first-class job.

John Thomas

I can't begin to describe how brilliant the service, and most importantly, the work, was from Chipsaway. They were almost £100 cheaper than my other quote, and had the car fixed and returned within a few days. I would strongly recommend Jim and Caroline, I wish all companies had this level of customer service and ability to get the job done so well! Thanks again.
