My Services


I have worked for various insurers for more than 30 years, so it was a big step to ask Tony at Chip-Away to repair the front skirting on my Mercedes SLK, rather than go to a normal body-shop. I watched with fascination at the care and skill used. Really impressed with the final result and at a fraction of the cost.


Thank you Tony & Bill for the amazing repair to my car – I had caused quite a bit of damage to the car’s wheel arch and rear door and really didn’t think it was something that could be repaired on my driveway, I was so pleased with the finished work. You were professional, polite, arrived on time - being able to carry out the repair on a Saturday was a great bonus too – no need to take time off work. Thank you too for removing an additional dent near the door handle – I had been advised by a body shop it wasn’t possible to remove it so that was a great bonus. The cost of the work was all agreed before starting so no hidden costs and I paid a fraction of the price quoted by a body shop. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you 10 out of 10 for professionalism and standard of work.


It was good to meet you last Friday (4th April), when you and your colleague repaired the nearside wing of my Volkswagen Caddy van. I say a repair, but after you had finished it looked like new. I am really delighted with the job you did for me and I wanted to thank you personally. Not only did you take care of my vehicle but was very careful not to affect any other vehicles that were nearby. I had not used the "Chips Away" service before, and would certainly not think twice at contacting you again should the need arise. Needless to say I would also recommend your services to friends & family. All the best.

Just wanted to say thank you for the repair you carried out on our car. We are very happy with the job. If I accidentally bump into another post (hopefully that won't happen!) I know who to call!

Just had my bumper done after an embarrassing ding? Great job, looks really neat. A lot of work for what seemed so little damage but such are modern bumpers these days! I'll be coming back to you for the other half's car shortly.

Thank you for the efficient job you did on our car on Friday. My husband has tried in vain to find fault with the repairs to the dents and scratches you fixed. We will be pleased to recommend you to our friends and family should they at any time in the future require any car body work repairs.

Thankyou Tony for a professional job on my BMW. It looked perfect before I backed into a tree and it is looking perfect again now. All done in a morning in my driveway. I am very happy with your punctual friendly service and an excellent job at a very reasonable price. To be recommended.


Hi Tony, just a quick e mail to say thanks for the work you completed on my C Class Mercedes this week. The bumper, wing and door look fantastic, scratches and dents all fixed! The paint match and blending in are superb you can't tell it has been painted! Thanks again I will be in touch about a wheel refurbishment shortly!!

A very big thank you for the repairs to my Zafira. This was the first time I have used your company but decided to do so after many recommendations. I must say I'm delighted with the finished repair and would like to add that it was 1st class service from start to finish, from the estimate to paying the final cost, also the communication was excellent. Whatever car you own, if you are unlucky to have to get a repair done you will not get a better job than from this operator and a really nice lad to go with it, many thanks Tony.
