Chaplane is a family run business that was established by Alan Chapman in 1968 and continues to go from strength to strength under the direction of his son Paul.


We are approved repairers for Alfa Romeo, Audi, Chrysler, Fiat, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Jeep, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault, SEAT, Skoda, Subaru, Volkswagen and Volvo. We are specialist repairers for Porsche and were proud winners of the Porsche Centre Approved Body Repairer Bodyshop of the Year award in 2008 and 2009.

The overall benefit to the customer is that our repair methods are continually checked against the manufacturer's standards - ensuring that your vehicle is just as safe after repair as it was when it left the showroom.


As an independent and family run business we can deliver a personal touch to our customers often missed by a large group of bodyshops. Customer service and satisfaction are at the heart of everything we do.


We believe this gives our customers complete confidence in the quality of Chaplane.
