Each and every repair undertaken is done so using some of the most advanced tools and methods available; meaning you can rest assured that you are getting the best available care for a fair price.

At ChipsAway Carcare Stockport we have established a proud and enviable reputation for rapid work turnaround by utilising the latest materials with express curing properties. In many cases we can complete in hours what a main dealer body shop would complete in days.

Our promise to you is that each and every repair is carried out in the most professional manner and we strive to provide you with the best customer service in the business.

Experienced Staff

All of our employees possess the experience required to provide an exceptional service for every aspect of vehicle repair work. We also recognise the need for good customer service, which is why we like to engage in communication with each and every customer we meet.

The Best in Quality

Whatever the task of repair, ChipsAway Carcare Stockport has the best solution available in the industry. Using the very best paints and spray equipment, we are able to provide our customers with the highest quality of finish possible. And for dents and bump repairs we use high end equipment that helps us get the job done to the optimum level.

Price and Value

By choosing to work with us you could be saving up to 50% in comparison to other body repair centres. We believe in providing excellent value to and the savings that we make through the design of our Carcare Centres, we are more than happy to pass on to our customers.

Saving You Time

Given that we are able to fix many repairs on the same day, it means less time waiting for your vehicle to be returned to you. Therefore we make things convenient for our customers. We recognise that being without your vehicle for any given period of time would be far from ideal, which is why we conduct our repairs in a timely and efficient manner.

 

Services we offer 

We have a custom designed drop-in Carcare Body Shop in Hazel Grove consisting of specialist repair garages, a paint shop and the relevant heat and servicing equipment.

Our Carcare Body Shop has been setup in the most cost effective way, which means our customers benefit from the savings we make. Our centres are not designed like the traditional body repair shops and we do not repair vehicles with major crash damage. Therefore, what this means is that our overhead costs are less, which enables us to reflect such savings in our prices.

Another reason the ChipsAway Carcare Body Shop helps us provide continuous low prices to our customers is that we are able to undertake various repairs at the same time.

  • Small, Medium and Large cosmetic repairs
  • Steel, Aluminium and Plastic Multi panel repairs
  • Small Accident Insurance repairs
  • Removal and/or replacement of ‘Bolt-on’ panels
  • ‘Paintless Dent’ removal (therefore there is no need to re-spray)
