"KS Autos began its journey as a Motor Mechanic and as time went by the business began to outsource many of its Bodyworks clients, after several requests to have vehicles completed at our premises and according to our standards the business started to look at options. Initially with a standard spraying booth and technical staff we were able to do a better job than most of our near competitors.Our Aim as a company is to change the perception of Motor Mechanics and Bodyworks, we want our clients to feel comfortable whatever their background whether professional or manual. We aim to provide a clean enviroment for our clients and to keep our carbon emisssions very low.We aim to clarify and show exactly what works will be carried out so as to ensure no complications on our behalf and provide sufficient evidence to our diagnosis so there is no element of excessive work.Overall we aim to make our Clients so Happy they send all their Friends!Within the last year our bodyworks demand increased and we used this increase to help pave the way for a state of the art body spraying facilities that includes a High Standard Oven.Our Mechanical section also was boosted with further premises and ramps and more experienced Staff."
