Ade was very informative, done a good job, and the customer service was great
Bodywork required whereby a dent on the side needed to be popped out, and then having the whole side repainted (original paint sourced from main dealer by the garage). Overall, on inspection, a fantastic job done by the guys at a reasonable price, whereby i cannot even tell a dent had ever been made on the car, like nothings happened!
Took to long to fix car
Ade was good. Price was reasonable but guess it could have been better. The only problem was with the time commitment. It was not delivered when it was initially promised and I feel they could have given a longer timeframe and delivered quickly than promising a shorter delivery time and taking longer.
Excellent job, really please with the resprayed bonnet. Would highly recommend! Even gave my little car a clean inside as well! Thank you
Carl and the guys did a great job repairing my damaged bumper. They even repaired a loose fog light and a creaking driver's door as part of their service. Highly recommend!
Had clutch replacement done at an affordable price. Good friendly mechanics.
Carl is a wizard. Did an amazing job on my ford focus. Stupidly I scratched the rear passenger side door when parking. Now it's as good as new. Dropped car off Wednesday morning and picked it up Friday evening. Highly recommend this garage and will recommend to friends (and use again should i need their services). Many thanks!
Professional and helpful, repair result nearly perfect.
The guys unexpectedly had a load to do on my car. Called me every day with an update and were patient and professional throughout. Would recommend.
One of the beat. friendly family run garage honest trust worthy will be a regular garage for me to go to
OMD garage did a good job of replacing my clutch at a very competitive price. They also collected & delivered my car which made the process so much easier
Discovered other work that needed doing and carried it out in a professional and timely manner
Absolutely brilliant service. Thoroughly professional, kept me updated throughout despite being during the Xmas period. Work was immaculate on the car. Would 100% recommend to anyone.
Great service. They kept me informed the whole way through. Cleaned inside and out. Would definitely recommend.
They did a great job and car looks like new. Pick up and collect too which was a big reason why I chose them. Very satisfied.
Great experience! I wanted to repair a stone chip and bonnet dent and Ray was a friendly chap answering any questions I had. My request was dealt with very fast and the repair process was explained very well and the job was complete within 4 days. I also had 3 other smaller stone chips which was also repaired too without me asking so now the bonnet looks completely new.
Very pleased with the job Ray and his team did. They had a very competitive price and the customer service was one of the best I have seen across several sectors. They work around your schedule rather than having you to move your schedule to their availability (something I have noticed with several other garages). Great job done with my car. They even delivered my car back to my house.
I wasn't disappointed. I initially thought the price to good to be true when compared to others, initially I discounted this garage, but on reading the reviews I changed my mind and I'm pleased I did. Mosses was very clear in his communication, reconfirmed the price upon seeing the damage. The job was done in two days from dropping it off and if i didnt know where the damage was it would be impossible to tell, as Mosses said "that's what we do".. Very impressed and I would certainly be recommending his services to other in future. Top Job and a big thanks to Moses and his team. Only problem is locating the garage initially.
I had scuffs and a crack in the rear bumper of my 5 Series. Moses did an excellent job and the result is immaculate. I took the car in the morning and it was ready before closing. Good communication, good price, professional and a nice guy. I would thoroughly recommend this company for your bodywork.
Great garage 5 star's very friendly done a great job on my car for a good price.
Excellent service - Highly recommend!!!!
Moses did a fantastic job on the car. Great level of service, and thoroughly nice guy. Would definitely use again and recommend to all.

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 avaliable.
However the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the serivce 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.
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!
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.
