Fixed the problem over bank holiday weekend with no fuss. Nice guy. Recommended
Fantastic service nice guy
Top notch, professional highly recommend.
Quick, efficient and friendly. Got more from the diagnostic than expected. Would recommend.
The gentleman did all-in-all check for everything and provided detailed report with photos and a phone call, I didn't even need to be present. He fixed a fault himself and pushed the showroom to change break-pads and sort out couple of issues. I'm happy with the service. Price changed to have the plug-in check and test drive included.
They were nice and helped sort out my problem
Speedy response, changed alternator belt and power steering belt, adjusted clutch, tyre pressure set, advised on need for oil filter change and leak of oil in gearbox. Very pleasant and did not feel pressured to accept job, would use again and would recommend.
Excellent repair and friendly service

We had a very very good experience with this garage. Gary is an affable person, welcoming, efficient, fast. We received a very good price and they carried out the full service in some two hours. Very competitive rates compared to other garages.
Can't recommend this garage highly enough manager was a top bloke really helpful and got my air con blowing cold again also the good thing about it is it's right next to portobello road so while works is carried out you can have a look about instead of just sitting about waiting .
Car was picked up on time from my house and was dropped off at my work in time for me to drive home, paid exactly what the quote was and they even went the extra mile and replaced a bulb that had blown and also checked tyre pressures and fluid levels without any extra charges. Will definitely be using this garage again!!! Thank u !!
Fantastic garage. Very close to me and based in Notting Hill, this little garage was a right find. They opened on a Saturday just to do this job, the place was immaculate. Gary said that the car would take an hour for the service and it took exactly that, while it was being done I had a wander around Portobello and then sat in the waiting room using the wifi provided. He even did a free diagnostic check on my car. When I asked about other things I wanted do e on the car he had relevant model specific pictures on his laptop and talked me through the choices and costs. Very impressed, nice guy, lots to do while you're waiting, very knowledgable and fast service - already booked another job in with him.
Was delighted - great service, super easy to deal with Ade and Olu by text and phone, and car looked great after. Thanks guys! :)
Great service. Communication was excellent . The job was completed on time and at high specifications. Definitely recommend.
Excellent and fast service - all damage repaired fully. Very good people to deal with, and would recommended them fully. Great service.
Genuinely excellent. Bob and his son did an immaculate bodyshop job on my BMW in quick time and at a very reasonable price. Very friendly and always there to answer calls. I would certainly recommend them and will be using them again.

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;
