“Thank you for your good service fixing our daughters car. I could not fault your service from the time we called in for a quote and having received the loan car to when we picked up her car. The attention to detail was excellent and we were kept informed about how things were progressing. The car was ready on time in pristine condition. An excellent job all round.”

I just wanted to say thank you very much for the wonderful job Brighton Panel Works did in fixing my car. The price and the service was fantastic. Warren was wonderful in keeping me up to date with the progress of my repair and was able to provide me with a loan vehicle straight away for which I was very thankful. I can’t thank the staff at Brighton Panel Works enough.
