I managed to scratch and dent my Nissan Juke’s rear L/ Passenger door, so bad though might need new door ouch! But these guys saved the day and done an amazing job at repairing it, so happy. Was all done in a day and had a courtesy car so I could still work. Highly recommend them to any one great job thank you so much :)

Mr Harper rang in to say that Ryan in Kent did a marvellous job. He rung Ryan on Thursday who came out and estimates the same day, plus the repair was done on Saturday. Very pleased with the job, thank you.


Amazing job by Ryan and Co at ChipsAway. Urgently needed some badly scratched alloys fixed, contacted Ryan at 10am and had a perfect job done by 4pm the same day. Great service and quality job. Life savers.

5 star review! I have been extremely impressed with the comprehensive service from Ryan, arranging to come to my home and review the damage someone has deliberately caused to my car. Within 48 hours of calling, Ryan arrived precisely at the time arranged and gave an instant quote (which was kept to). Within another 48 hours my car was at his fully equipped garage.


Ryan, had my Mercedes in today to repair a scratched sill. The car is 16 years old, the paint match is fantastic. Top job, completed quickly and at a reasonable price. Many thanks. Highly recommended!!

Graham Hutchings

Great job on repairing the alloy wheel on the BMW X5. Superfast service and hassle free. I will definitely be using Ryan and the team in the future.

Paul Campbell

Ryan and his colleagues at ChipsAway did a fantastic job of repairing my bumper and bumper strip. Great friendly service and reliable. I had been disappointed to have been told at a sister ChipsAway (Ipswich) that they were unable to repair my textured bumper strip (which meant that there wouldn't have been much point having the rest of the bumper repaired and repainted at all!) but Ryan did an absolutely immaculate repair of both the paintwork, scratches and textured bumper strip! Speedy repair. Fair and reasonable charges too. I would highly recommend!

Justine Dee

Took my Punto in with rear end damage. The guys Ryan and Jamie happy to help took it on and turned out a great job got it back this afternoon all straight and shiny thanks again for all your help.

Rob Bignell

Can't praise Ryan and his team enough. Only had my Citroen C4 for a few days when I caught the front bumper on my neighbours fence post which pulled the bumper away from the bodywork and deeply scratched the bumper. Tried the Citroen agents who said it could be an expensive repair. The next day, Saturday, I took it to ChipsAway. Ryan looked at the damage, gave me a very reasonable price for the repair and told me to bring it in on Monday morning and he would provide me with a courtesy car completely free of charge. This I did. Delivered the car to him at 8.15, was given the key to a courtesy car, returned home and got a call at 2.45 to say job completed. Went straight along and found my car waiting for me. The repair was perfect. Absolutely no sign of the damage and looked as if it had just come off the forecourt. Very very pleased with the repair and the cost. Will be recommending him to everybody I know. Thanks Ryan to you and your colleagues.

Ryan and Charlie provide an excellent level of expertise and customer service. I was nervous having anyone work on my X5 as its my pride and joy with very large alloys and trick paint but their work was exceptional - highly recommend them.
