What our customers think?

“Finding the right car body repairer is not always an easy task. Chartwells are about as good as it gets. My first visit to Chartwells was to obtain a quote for the damage done to my car. The building did not appear to be a body shop repair centre. However, when you enter through the glass doors and see Ferrari and Porsche in the show room you think you are in the wrong place. The place simply oozed professionalism. ”

“Providing a pleasurable experience throughout the repair process. Continual updates from the most professional of advisors culminating in the highest standard of repair and paint. I wouldn’t use anybody else. ”

“I shouldn’t have bothered looking elsewhere because the care and attention that is provided by Glyn, Sarah, Ed and Dan is second to none. ”

“Outstanding Service, Attention to Detail and Care. I have used Chartwells once before and I was delighted with the service then. The team delivery first class service and I drive especially from Leicester to have my car repaired following a hit a run on my car. ”

“There quality and high standards cannot be matched the staff are all fantastic and a credit to the company. Just wished others would learn to drive so i didn’t need to return so often ”
