Southside was one of the first bodyshops in the country to achieve BSI Kitemark accreditation, this gives our customers the piece of mind that their vehicle is in good hands and is being repaired by a team of fully trained technicians.

As we all know times have not been easy for anyone in the recent years and it’s very easy for our vehicles to become a victim of this!

With insurance XS’s getting higher and the result in having a claim and losing your no claims bonus can be very costly for your future policies.

At Southside we have tried to come up with a way that we can combat some of these problems, if you hit the Budget Quote tab we think you will be surprised at how little you can get some repairs done for if we knock off all of the extras, ie courtesy car, valet etc. you will still get the same guaranteed repairs.
