Many thanks for excellent repair you completed and also thanks for squeezing me into your busy schedule. You arrived on time, did the job in the time estimated and kept to your quoted price. You will be my first call when another idiot decides to damage my car and not tell me.

This was the first time I have used the service of Chips Away, and so I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I received was an extremely quick response from Tom Bothamley, who quickly gained all the information he needed to provide me with the right information and an appointment, to suit me, was arranged. I also sent photos to him which helped both parties ensure everyone was clear. I sent a text the night before to re-confirm the appointment, to which he responded immediately. He was on time, and extremely polite. He had to take my car to his workplace, and as promised called me to advise if there were any additional things he believed may be picked up by the Lease Company. I was surprised to receive a call around 4 hours later, advising he was back in my car park waiting to hand over the keys. Every interaction with Tom was efficient and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services. 10/10.


When I see ‘Request a free estimate’ I always think I’m going to get a ‘free ‘hard sales pitch afterwards; it was refreshing not to have this from Tom Bothamley at ChipsAway| What I did get was a free estimate from someone who wasn’t trying to rip me off and who was extremely helpful. My car was repaired without any hassle or fuss by someone who clearly knows their stuff. I just feel I would like to compliment Tom & Jonathan and ChipsAway for pleasant and competent service. I know people usually only write to complain, but having worked in the service sector, I understand the value of feedback or constructive criticism. The car looks good, despite a day punctuated with wind, rain and hailstones, but more to the point, it was pleasant competent professional service from start to finish, several hours later. Tom & Jonathan deserve to prosper. I personally would feel inclined to recommend them, even though I will be pleased not to have to seek their service in the future!

Although my BMW is sixteen years old it's my pride and joy but suffered from scuffed rims spoiling it's appearance and unsure they could be fixed. I wish to commend Mr Bothamley's professionalism and the result of his work having transferred my wheels to as they were when new. Furthermore I was particularly impressed with the lengths he went to protect areas outside those he worked on and will have no hesitation to employ Chips Away in the future. A grateful customer.

Used Tom & Chris in York area. Fantastic service from beginning to end. Had quite a significant paint repair on the front of Porsche 911 and they did an excellent job. Also did other bits and pieces at the same time, including some corrosion on the wheel arch. They are not just for small chips and scrtaches. Would highly recommend and would use again.


ChipsAway York (Tom Bothamley) provided an excellent service for my 'challenging' black BMW 5 series. Highly recommended. Thank you!
