Our approvals

We are approved repairers for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Fiat, Honda, Hyundai, Isuzu, Jeep, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault and Subaru. These manufacturers have certain standards that must be met in order to maintain our approved status. We only ever use genuine parts and approved paint on our vehicles.


We specialise in repairing all vehicles, including prestige manufacturers. We have worked very closely with Porsche and many other high end vehicle manufacturers since opening in 1968 and maintained a strong partnership throughout.

We have the technology, equipment and experience to work on any vehicle and have offered an excellent service to our customers over the years whose cars include Mercedes, Jaguar, BMW and most other prestige manufacturers.


Our team has many years’ experience working closely with our approved manufacturers and prestige manufacturers and are trained highly within the required standards. Regular training and using the latest equipment means that we can deliver an outstanding level of service and quality across all makes of vehicles.
