Quick, efficient,great service thankyou
My car needed the Clutch replacing plus some other work. Great service and very good price. Booked me in as soon as he could. With Phil Going out of his way to get my car fixed with some other problems arising which phil sorted in a professional manner keeping me updated every step of the way even working late on a Saturday to do it for me. Can't recommend these guys enough.
Staff were really friendly and did a great job fitting my break panels, disks, and new tyres. They didn't take too long at all and it was a great price for how much they did.
Prompt collection and delivery Work carried out to a high standard Talked to Mp before the work and added an additional requirement which they were happy to carry out The diagnostics needed resetting after the work was completed which they did but meant I had to go over to them the following day. Thats the only reason it's not a 5 star review All the best Phil going forward Cheers Alan
Great job,very nice people to deal with.
Excellent repair and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
A small nothing fancy place, but they provided the quote quickly and were really easy to communicate with, answering promptly and with required detail. The work was done well and in reasonable time, the price was significantly cheaper than in some other fancier places. They also polished my car really well removing some hard to remove scratches, which I'm really grateful for. I only give 4 stars (would give 4.5 if I could) because they don't have automatic courtesy cars. It is understandable for such a small garage but for me it meant that I had to hire a car which completely ate out all the price difference with the more expensive garages.
Looks as good as new, good work. Would go back again if I ever needed repairs
Good price and competent job done
Car took longer than expected to do but I appreciated their honesty when they called me to say it wasn’t right and they couldn’t give it back to me. Got it back dinner time the next day and was more than impressed with the service. Would defo recommmend.
Brilliant, can't complain!
Prompt efficient service. Pleased with the work done. Great competitive price. Would definitely recommend.
Very good and knew what he was about.
This is a gem of a garage just behind Peartree Road, Normanton where I had my clutch repaired. Carl"s quote was the lowest by far and the job was done very quickly with no messin" about. I recommend this garage.
They did an amazing job, the car was picked up, the work was done and documented with pictures and videos, the car was cleaned and delivered back to me. Can't fault their work, would highly recommend them to friends and family. The communication was a bit slack at times but I think that was due to it being a busy period.
Happy with the service. Great value for money. Just remember to take their number and leave yours.
Did great work!
Done a good job will be using again will be recommending to friends and family just booked to service my car

Excellent service, offerred more work, extremely satisfied.
A very friendly and professional service and I would certainly recommend this garage and mobile response unit to anyone and will use them again myself.
Adam diagnosed the problem with my S Type within 5 minutes. Ordered my the sensor from Jaguar and repaired my car , very pleased with my experience with Mello's,and Adam did a cracking job, highly recommended.
Cheap, garage with a good quality finish, could do with a upgrade in courtesy cars. Cause my car kept cutting out and stalling on its own. But apart from that, good value.
I was extremely impressed with the standard of work and all the staff I had dealings with. I am a carer for my husband and although we live in Derby, and the Company are in Nottingham, they both collected and delivered the car. Knowing the car was needed for Sunday, even though not totally finished, the boot open light was visible, it was delivered back on Saturday with the promise the light would be sorted out when the technicians returned after the weekend.
Hopefully our FAQ section has answered some of the questions you may have about bodywork repair. However, if you would like more information, we have the produced the following guide to help you understand the subject in greater detail.
Body work repair covers a wide range of job types which means the cost will vary greatly as well as the length of time it will take to carry out.
Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best available.
However, the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the service will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore, if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car.
If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
The car wrap will can then be applied to the properly.
Once more, the time taken to complete the work depending on the size and shape of the piece.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
If you have been in an accident, we hope you're ok!
When it comes to having your car fixed after an accident it can be a toss up as to how much it will cost and how long the car will take to be repaired as the extent of the damage will be completely different from one to the next.
It's can be impossible to understand the extent of the damage to your vehicle after an accident so it's vital that you get more than one quote, as the cost could vary by hundreds of pounds from one garage to the next.
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair.
The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
