WHO ARE GARRETTS BODYWORKS?
ALL ABOUT GARRETTS BODYWORKS – PAST & PRESENT
Garretts Bodyworks Ltd. is a family owned and run company, established 30 years ago to provide customers with an informative claims help/repair service, and insurance companies with a professional and competive estimating/repair facility, rare in those days. We were instrumental in the provision of courtesy cars and our customers were among the first to be kept mobile whilst their own vehicles were undergoing repair.
We have grown to a 30,000 sq.ft. repair centre, using state of the art technology, and skills, to repair 100 vehicles, up to 7.5 ton per week.
The Kitemark is the UK’s most respected and coveted certification mark. To achieve and retain the BSI Kitemark BS10125 Vehicle Body Repair standard, Garretts staff have had to go through the most vigorous examinations, practically and theoretically, to become ATA accredited (Automotive Technician Accreditation). This involves a comprehensive examination of their skills (in the case of panelbeaters – over a period of 4 days) at a nationally appointed test centre. Therefore, in order to be awarded and retain the Kitemark, our technicians must be fully qualified and ATA accredited in their specified field.
We are appointed as approved repairers for many major insurance companies and links to these companies are provided below:
