Superb work and finish to repair my VW Golf in midnight blue metallic . Ryan and his team were incredibly professional and helpful in every way. I would highly recommend them.


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.

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.


Ryan, had my Mercedes in today to repair a scratched sill. The car is 16 years old, the paint match is fantastic. Top job, completed quickly and at a reasonable price. Many thanks. Highly recommended!!


Ryan and Charlie provide an excellent level of expertise and customer service. I was nervous having anyone work on my X5 as its my pride and joy with very large alloys and trick paint but their work was exceptional - highly recommend them.


Can't praise Ryan and his team enough. Only had my Citroen C4 for a few days when I caught the front bumper on my neighbours fence post which pulled the bumper away from the bodywork and deeply scratched the bumper. Tried the Citroen agents who said it could be an expensive repair. The next day, Saturday, I took it to ChipsAway. Ryan looked at the damage, gave me a very reasonable price for the repair and told me to bring it in on Monday morning and he would provide me with a courtesy car completely free of charge. This I did. Delivered the car to him at 8.15, was given the key to a courtesy car, returned home and got a call at 2.45 to say job completed. Went straight along and found my car waiting for me. The repair was perfect. Absolutely no sign of the damage and looked as if it had just come off the forecourt. Very very pleased with the repair and the cost. Will be recommending him to everybody I know. Thanks Ryan to you and your colleagues.


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.


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


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


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!
