Done a great job on the Mercedes. Really good prices. Will use this guy again without any questions.

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!! :-)

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

Whilst this was only a small scratch, the damage was very deep to the main body of the car (not an individual panel). Being an Aston Martin, a high-quality repair was imperative - and Ryan delivered!


Fantastic service from these guys. Fast, friendly and cost effective with amazing results on a very custom piece of work. Was a bit of a lack of communication to begin with but this was made up for with all of the above. Would defiantly use again and recommend!

Ryan done an excellent job on my Corsa earlier this year and defo gets the thumbs up for service from me and will recommend him to others, Great job and well done

Les Biggs

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 of the time they anticipated needing it. Very many thanks for another super job

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

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

Great service, fantastic repair and a pleasure to deal with. Would happily recommend.
