Ryan Lythe

Operating out of our Herne Bay Car Care Centre workshop, Ryan Lythe is your local ChipsAway specialist providing car bodywork repairs for Canterbury and the surrounding areas, including Herne Bay, Whitstable & Faversham. 

Ryan joined the network in 2011, and has since been named ChipsAway 'Newcomer of the Year 2012' and ‘Marketer of the Year 2016’ at recent ChipsAway Annual Conference and Awards Dinners. 


I wish to convey my sincere thanks to Ryan Lythe and Charlie for their excellent work on my car this morning. The damaged wing now looks as good as new.


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.


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!

5 star review! I managed to scratch my Nissan Duke rear left passenger door, so badly that I thought I might need a new door. But these guys saved the day and have done an amazing job at repairing it, I am so happy. It was all done in a day and I had a curtis car so I could still work. I would highly recommend them to anyone - great job, thanks so much.


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.

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

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.


Great service. Booked in quickly and all done on the same day. Would definitely use again if I have to, touch wood I don't!

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.

Tim Sarchet

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!
