Did an absolutely fantastic job on my Focus ST highly recommended will be going back to get couple of scratches repaired too

What would have been £3000 upwards to repair with Aston Martin, was considerably less with Ryan, yet the same finish I would have expected with Aston Martin. The individual colour code for the car was used to mix a perfect metallic paint, and the finish is exceptional. I will both be recommending Ryan to others, and returning myself for any future work if required. I can't thank him enough - my pride and joy is back to looking it's best.

Ryan and Charlie, not only were we delighted with the work you undertook on our car, but it was half the estimate given by one of your competitors and you needed the car for half the time that they anticipated needing it. Very many thanks for another super job.

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.

Dear Ryan and team, Herne Bay. Your polite and friendly service from reception to the re-delivery of my Vehicle was second to none. Wow! The speed and efficiency of your work was very impressive, my car looks brand new. I cannot recommend you highly enough, in fact I already have, and will continue to do so. Thank you so much.

Anthea Robins

Just a quick note to say thanks for the excellent work on the car. It's as good as new and I can't fault the service I was provided one bit. I will definitely recommend you to any friends or family in the future.


I am a really difficult person to please, in fact I am rarely impressed BUT my poorly BMW (wife reversing) had a crunched bumper. Ryan and the boys fixed it and it is like new for a really modest price. I'm pleased, in fact very pleased, annoyingly so as I love complaining! I would recommend them without hesitation!! :-)

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.

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.

Mr Harper

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 :)
