Price was higher, due to my own fault asking for timing belt instead of timing chain. excellent service and great communication, highly recommended.
Without a shadow of doubt from start to finish perfect As a 1st time customer the communication was perfect car was picked up on time perfect communication through out the day with updates car dropped off earlier looking like it came out of a show room. Told me exactly what was wrong and what the recommendations are really felt at ease Perfect gentleman All I can say is a big big thank you and will see you again soon 10 stars all the way highly recommend
I needed my Cam Belt changing after being let down and it needed doing like yesterday. Kens garage quoted me £250 and considering I was desperate I accepted. I provided the parts and they picked up my car. Once there I got the call that my discs and pads were really really shot and was quoting another £250. Although expensive, I had no choice but to accept it ( not because I was forced to, far from it, it was for safety). They promised to have the car back to me within 24 hrs and I was disappointed that they arrived 1 minute late! Overall I'm more than happy. They helped me out greatly and had the car back to me as promised. Slightly expensive, but they did collect and drop off the car to my door. Great comms throughout and a very friendly guy to deal with. Would definitely use again without hesitation.
They were brilliant, they picked the car up as soon as they could and got it back to me within 24 hours. Good to know i have a good garage if i need one - they are hard to find!
I needed a clutch fitted to car and was advised not to go to Mr Clutch by two independent mechanics. I went with Kens, as a second quote. I used them as they were the quickest to respond to me, and promptly came and collected car within 30 minutes of calling them. Was slightly more than I wanted to pay, but this was because other work needed doing. No stress, no fuss, they delivered car back to me once complete, so I didn't have the hassle of waiting around. Would definitely use again. The other independent mechanics got back to me 2-5 days later and even received a call 2 days ago, way, way to slow. Spoke to Mark from beginning to end and car seems to be running fine. Car was finished within 24hrs.
Excellent service. repaired the scratches on my Mercedes brilliantly at the lowest price on here. Even picked and delivered the vehicle back to me the next day. Highly recommended
These guys are simply great. Picked up my car from my flat in Clapham and dropped it off in evening, all within 12 hours! I had an initial quote of a bumper respray and a couple of other things which I suddenly sprung which they were fine about. When they dropped off the car they also explained that they can pretty do everything under the sun for you! My bumper respray was great and will always use CRS Auto's from now on for my 'go to' garage and they know what they're doing. Definitely recommend.
Very good with responding to messages. Very fast service, picked the car up and dropped it off and had the car back in a few days. Also the quality is as good as the service
Decent pricing and good customer service
Really pleased with the service they provided. Excellent price so I asked them to do the MOT too. They collected and dropped off the same day. Would use them again and highly recommend.
Service completed. recommended some other work that needed to be done, but not immediately mandatory.
A professional and quick service would 100% recommend this garage!
Garage did exactly what I asked of them Very convenient timing and easy access to leave vehicle at a time that suited me Would come back and would recommend
very disappointed! they fixed my car in May, I paid over £ 1000 for that. I paid them very quickly. one month later i received a parking notice, £ 80 to be paid because they didn't pay for the parking ticket. I called the garage and was told to pay for it and forward them the notice in order to be refunded. so i did it. I never received this money!!! I've been calling them every week, they said they transferred the money last week, but still no money in my account. I called them yesterday (today is the 28th August) and they said they were calling me back, of course this didn't happen. I find it ridicolous, I paid over 1000 pounds in 2 days and now I've been chasing them for £ 80, after 2 months they are still not refunding me. no reply to my emails, no calls back as promised, no money. will never and ever go back to them to fix my car.
Very poor job done. I asked them to investigate wiring issue and to look for damaged wiring ect. They barely looked at the car. They plugged the car in and told me it couldn't read the ecu!!! Well that's the exact reason it was down with you!! They told me possibly a whole wiring loom at the cost of hundreds. Turned out after having a second opinion it was just a broken wire and was fixed easily. These people give mechanics a bad name! I would not recommend this garage this website won't let me unstuck the box!!!!!!

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 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.
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.
Scratches and scruffs
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;
