Pleased with the service. Will recommend. Turned up on time. Completed the job with no fuss
i have to say good job on the team that repaired rust of my car, very busy team but im very impressed with there job id recommend anybody to these guys trustworthy
What lovely boys! Did a great job!
Dave and Steve are professional, efficient and knowledgable ! They worked days and nights (literally !) to fix my car. This is probably the best service in the area. My door was badly damaged (dented and deeply scratched) and they were able to fix this in less than 6 days ! I will definitely be using them in the future.
Dave and Steve replaced both front dampers and fixed the flapping belly pan, throughout the whole process both where a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond with the courtesy car and trying to get the warranty company to cover the cost of the repairs. I will definitely have any further repairs done by then and would highly recommend them, their level of service is second to none!
Excellent service, booked on monday, they collected on Tuesday morning, fixed it and then drove me to the garage Tuesday afternoon after the repair! Checked and topped up all other fluids on car, checked and balanced tyre pressure. Excellent service would highly recommend and use again!
Great work from Josh. He called during the work to keep me updated, and even looked at a small issue on the car that I hadn't reported! Definitely use these guys again!
Josh was very helpful and friendly. He came and picked the car up and brought it back which was very helpful as I work shifts. He also kept me up to date on what was going on with car. I was very pleased with the service and would definitely use Josh again in the future.
I felt that Josh who sorted the bodywork on my car was extremely accommodating. He turned up with the courtesy car on day 1 and arranged dropping my car off at a convenient place for me when the work was completed. He took great pride and respect in his work and the repairs to my damaged car are flawless. Chloe is also an invaluable asset to the company, she kept myself updated with the car even when we had issues with snow and road closures. I would highly reccommend the company for anyone who needs bodywork repairs done on their vehicle. The price quoted is the price I paid and I felt happy to pay to a garage for a good honest days work. Thank you!
Excellent service by JR Vehicle Services. Josh was extremely polite and professional at all time. We have had a few anctious weeks after the head gasket failing on my daughters 207 but now carrying out checks after the works being completed but all is absolutely fine with no further water loss or oil contamination into the header bottle. Excellent service and will certainly use again.
Collected and returned my car , great service would use again
He diagnosed the problem with no fuss. Super job!
A1 service.....would highly recommend.......no job is a problem
Good mechcanic. Needed job doing at short notice and was fitted in nice and fast.
Mr Singh originally quoted for a head gasket replacement (self diagnosed with the help of the Internet). Upon thorough investigation Mr Singh believed that the fault lay elsewhere and regarded replacing the gasket as an unnecessary expense. The fault has now been fixed and, as a consequence of Mr Siingh's diligence and honesty, saved me over £800 from the original quote.
Professional, fast and very competitive service. Replaced my alternator in no time!
They did everything they said they would. Very happy and overall good experience at a reasonable price!
A little bit late turning up but really fast and efficient on the job. Would definitely use again.
Punctual, tried their hardest to get the car going but unable to
Excellent service. Arrived on time to do the diagnosis. Have us good advice about sourcing parts and returned very quickly to complete the repair once the parts arrived. Clean and tidy job and massively impressed. Will certainly be using this service and this mechanic again.
Pleasantly surprised. Came to the house, did the job whist I was working on other things. Also took the car for its MOT. Less hassle than taking the car to the garage. look forward to getting my other car done in the future.
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.

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.

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 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.
