Meet the owner

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. 


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!


Can't thank you enough. Immaculate repair, immaculate customer service and we've never known any business to be so speedy with their communications. We're so impressed we have already booked in a second job.

Simon and Tina Bailey

Amazing job, car looks brand new again. Also really quick and very friendly service. Would definitely recommend!

Katherine Bradley

Ryan and Charlie were extremely pleasant, polite and very professional in their approach to their work and it was a pleasure to meet them. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to family and friends. They are most definitely a credit to your organisation.

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.

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.


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.


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

Luke Keavney

Did an absolutely fantastic job on my Focus ST highly recommended will be going back to get couple of scratches repaired too

Krystal Appleby

Ryan and Charlie, 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 the time that they anticipated needing it. Very many thanks for another super job.
