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. 


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.

I phoned ChipsAway after seeing their advertising in the local paper and the same day I had a call from Ryan in Herne Bay, he sent one of his employees out to me and no more than an hour later I had my estimate carried out. To cut a long story short, great service, fair price and more than I expected as the repair was perfect. Definitely 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.


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.


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

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.

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!

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!! :-)

Paul Alan Creed
