Fantastic service, picked up and dropped off same day. All fixed within a few hours, unbeatable prices would recommend!
I was really worried when I had damaged my car side panel and door that it was going to cost me thousands of pounds to repair. I went to local garages who were all quoting me roughly £3,000 to repair. I thought for sure I was going to have to claim on the insurance because all the garages were saying it needed a new panel and door. However when JJLux messaged me saying they could do it for a fraction of a price I was very pleased. They said they could do it without replacing these, the results are amazing you really could not tell that the car had ever had damage. I would highly recommend the service and they have a great portfolio of their work on Facebook which is the main reason I chose to go with them.
What a fantastic job. The service was impeccable from collecting my car to returning it. No trouble, and the finish on the car. Means I have to wash and wax the rest of it to fit in with the repair WELL DONE GUYS I WILL RECOMMEND YOU ANY TIME THANKS AGAIN BOB PAYNE RUNCORN
Very highly recommend!! Price was the same as quoted plus a very small fee for picking the car up and dropping it off. Looks as good as new and even fixed my side door when another garage tried to charge an extra £800 to replace it!! Excellent work, very very happy
This garage is amazing, after searching high and low to try and find away to repair 2 badly damaged doors on my corsa with no luck with the exception of quotes for thousands of pounds. JJ Lux sent me a quote through at more than half the price any where else had quoted though wefixanycar.. I had a look at their reviews and could see these guys Do an excellent job so was confident they could make my car look great again and they did not disappoint. Car collected and brought back 2 days later looking brand new. I cannot thank them enough for the work they have done. I will most certainly be recommeding this company to Everyone one. Weldone and thank you so much. Cheers Lee
Best experience I've had with a garage ever. Really open about the repairs that need doing, but also he shows you and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand giving a feeling of trust. Taking my cars in for any diagnosis or repairs has always left a feeling of unease, and and expectation that I'm gonna find out my car has multiple problems and the bill be suddenly hundreds with no real understanding of what is wrong. Completely opposite experience here, will completely trust and use this garage for everything from now on. Felt like I'd had a lesson in how my car runs when I left and didn't have a hole left in my pocket either.
5 star service. Would highly recommend
Great service, car taken on Sunday night and returned Monday evening with work completed to a high standard. Would highly recommend and would definitely use again
Brilliant job very helpful would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a good mechanic
Absolutely brilliant, honest and reliable service and by far the best garage about. Craig picked my car up and returned it the next day after fitting a replacement clutch as I work late which made my life very easy. Always the best price and always a first class job. Couldn't of asked for more and was kept updated throughout. Will definately use again for all my repairs and would definately recommend this garage. Thanks.
Price was for a service and full exhaust fitting. Can't knock the service. Thumbs up.
I would certainly recommend this garage.
Job turned out more complicated that expected, and rather than a 2 hour job it ended up near 7, despite this mark worked through the rain got the job done and didnt try adding any extra chrges. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYBODY
Absolutely excellent service - definitely recommended and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again
Friendly service, quick lead time for job completion and job done in a good time while I waited. Great price
Great service. Really helpful and honest
Excelent Garage picked up an dropped off same day. Job done an i do recommend this Garage to everyone. My car now feels an drives like new Thanks Cowley Hill service.
Top quality, honest and reliable garage. I was told that I needed a new dual mass clutch as this was affecting my starter motor by my previous garage, so I shopped around. Vee from Cowley Hill sent me a quote but also followed it up with a phone call to explain that he had spent time researching to see if it was in fact dual mass or not as his suppliers said it wasn’t. He went direct to a Citroen dealer to confirm that it wasn’t. Which was a relief, expensive wise. Vee picked my van up one evening and brought it back the following evening. When they checked it over there was nothing wrong with my clutch. The fault was with a cheap, not very good quality brand starter motor. They replaced the starter motor with a new quality brand, also new brake pads and discs and a full MOT. Vee was honest and reliable and the price was very reasonable. I wouldn’t go to any other garage now.
Excellent garage. Very helpful and fully recommend. Fitted me in for an mot for a great price.
Service was provided fast and in good quality. Recommending.
Best garage we have been to, very friendly people, car was ready in about 35 minutes which was a bonus! Will 100% be back here next year.

I did not take my car there.
Excellent service. To save me waiting around in the room, he said it is my next job, so it will be about 2 hours before I can look at it. I will give you a call in two hours and let you know how it is getting on. He phoned 2 hours later and said the job was done which was a pleasant surprise!!! Have already recommended to someone else.
So happy with the work done on my car. Was quoted a ridiculous price from arnold Clark to do the work - Andy done the same work for literally a tenth of the price! Highly recommended will return anytime my car needs anything!
Andy was brilliant and we were very pleased with the repairs carried out. I would definitely use Andy 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;
