Cat S Repair of a Jaguar F type 18.11.20 George Mackey

"My MK2.5 Focus ST was starting to show it’s age and required a degree of work to virtually every panel to get it back to it’s former glory. I’d had a quote from a national SMART repairer, which seemed really expensive for just blend ins and touch ups so I visited DC on a recommendation from a friend. Nick inspected my car and provided a fair and comprehensive quote for the work to be done properly. My car now looks absolutely fantastic and I also have the peace of mind that the work will last. It’s great having a decent body shop like DC close by, I’ll definitely be back as and when I need more work done. Many thanks to Nick, Kirsty and the team!"
Paintwork correction and spraying of multiple panels including the front bumper 04.10.20 Rys Bendall

" I wanted to say thank you to Nick and the rest of the team at Dunmow Coachworks. After a bad experience at another body shop I contacted Dunmow and they were happy to talk to me. Nick was super friendly and was happy to chat to me about spraying my BMW front bumper. It was obvious there was years of experience there, super efficient and I was very pleased with the quoted price. The bumper came out great, like new. I will be recommending them to everyone I know for bodywork, I will be coming back to Dunmow Coachworks for all works in the future. Thanks again!"

"I could not be more pleased with the work carried out on my vehicle. Absolutely fantastic job at a very competitive price. I was impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly service that I received from all the staff and would not hesitate to recommend DCM to others."
Porsche bumper scrape and wheel arch damage 17.07.19 Peter Rix

"Once again, superb service from the team at Dunmow Coachworks in repairing damage to the rear bumper of my Mercedes cabriolet. From start to finish, DC were (as always) totally professional and friendly, and the resulting repair is absolutely undetectable. What’s more, the cost of the repair in the end was less than the quote which illustrates DC’s integrity and honesty. This is the third time I’ve used DC, and I would not hesitate to highly recommend entrusting your vehicle to them. "
Repairs to Mercedes E350 Cabriolet rear bumper 04.07.19 John Cartwright

"I bought a Mercedes SLC without seeing it from a dealer who described it as having a light scrape. Jason (Dunmow Coachworks) did a fantastic job of not only repairing the bodywork, he replaced airbags and straightened the bent chassis, bent subframe the dealer forgot to mention. I wish I had asked Jason to look at the car before I paid the dealer. A1 plus for Jason and Kirsty who kept you well informed on the work. Highly recommended. Looking at the car you would not know it had been wrecked."

From getting the quote, right through to picking the car up today, the DC team were so friendly and professional. And the standard of work is absolutely stunning. They even cleaned the car. I would not hesitate to use DC again, and highly recommend them"

"These guys repaired my damaged Porsche Cayman which I purchased a few years ago. They maintained communication over the phone as I lived 300 miles away and they definately went the extra miles despite what problems the vehicle threw up. I cannot thank them enough the work was first class and even other bodtwork centres could not tell the vehicle had been repaired . Would definately use again they are excellent"
Repaired damaged Porsche Cayman 13.09.18 Colin Heslop

"Many thanks to Jason, Nick and Kirsty for the excellent bodywork restoration recently carried out on my 1996 Jaguar XJ6 (X300). The standard of finish of the paintwork and the detailing is of the highest quality and I am extremely pleased with the final result, which amply demonstrated the skill, care, attention to detail and overall professionalism you brought to the task in hand. As well as your outstanding technical abilities, as amply demonstrated by the quality of the work, your dedicated support and the high standard of customer service you provided, both in sourcing hard to find parts and ensuring that at all times I was kept fully aware of the level and cost of any additional work (which is inevitable in a project such as this) were exemplary. It was a great pleasure to be able work with all three of you during the restoration project. Thank you again and rest assured I will be back should the need arise at any time in the future."

Repaired Jaguar F-Type insurance write off 06.08.16 Conrad Bossomaier

"Thanks for a great job on repairing the sills on my 1985 Porsche 911. This is a common problem on these cars and the results you achieved were better than I could have imagined. The way you blended new panels into the existing to keep its integrity and correct look. It will eventually need further remedial bodywork repairs in the future and, to quote Arnold Shwarzenegger, I'll be back! Thoroughly recommend these guys."

" I never knew this company existed until a couple of weeks ago.I'm so glad I have now. Nick and his team were a very friendly bunch from the word go.

"After 28 years and a hit and run my 928 s2 was looking very tired and secondhand. As a list member of i had already seen Nick & Jason's work before i took my car to them and knew what i could expect. I can only say that i was delighted with the work they did on my car, the finish they achieved and their attention to detail. They are really nice guys to deal with, and their work first class. I cannot recommend them highly enough." Paul 928 S2 (now nice and shiny and looking very smart) 

"Just a note to thank you for the great job you carried out on my audi A3. I was particularly impressed that you treated bits that weren't part of the job. I have told the person who recommended me to you and I know he will pass that on to his many contacts in the area." Chris Moor

"Picked up my GTS from Dunmow Coachworks this week after a full respray. Old paint was tired, hazed and the laquer was peeling in many places, and after 5+ years of supremely enjoyable 928 motoring I decided that it was time to reward the old girl with some cosmetic fettling.

I can't recommend Nick Matheron and his team strongly enough. Nick is a fellow 928 owner, and they know their onions. The car looks absolutely fantastic, and not only had they done a super job on the outside, but the inside was also cleaned better than it has ever been before (my priority is driving, rather than cleaning, my 928).

Great guys, good value and superb workmanship. No affiliation, just a very happy customer." Phil'93 GTS

"Having only owned my Clio for 10 days somebody 'kindly' smacked my rear quarter. The guys at DC were sympathetic, and very friendly...nothing is too much trouble. On return (2days later) i couldnt believe the work done, it was car was even cleaned for me on collection!! 
GREAT SERVICE, GREAT GUYS! Hope i don't have to see them again too soon :)"

"BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT ! Nick and Jason of Dunmow Coachworks (DCW) are the most amazing and wonderful guys you could ever meet. Words cannot express how I feel; these guys should be famous in the automotive industry or even GODs of paint and body repair, Magic ….
I brought my extremely damaged 2005 PORSCHE CARRERA S 997 GEN-1 to DCW after a very favourable recommendation. I also did my own research on the company and everything was good about them and when we met THE GUYS for the first time it was 'Wow' ! They made us feel very welcome and we knew in our hearts the car was in good hands, and a safe place to do the work, and it just got better and better from there.
Very very friendly people and would bend over backwards for you if asked -nothing is too much trouble for them to do; good old fashioned Workmanship and Customer Service - very rare in this day and age. 
They quoted a price for the work, but as sometimes happens, the workload was greater and more complicated than expected, but they kindly stuck to the quote, which they were well within their rights to ask for considerably more money. 
They went above and beyond the call of duty when other people would not have bothered. I had some mechanical & electrical issues from the conversion to Gen-2, and nothing to do with DCW, totally my responsibility to fix this, but Jason took it upon himself to go the extra mile and resolve it for me, at no extra cost. 
And when it came to deciding the colour for the car, Nick went out of his way to spray samples to take away and think about, and steered us in the right direction and away from a huge mistake in colour choice and potential disaster from my fiancee's suggestion! (Never go with pink or spectraflair). 
I am extremely particular about quality and finish and I couldn't fault the end result. Jason and Nick produced an outstanding car - even better than the original from Porsche; today the car is a brand new 2011 Gen-2, head-turning work of art, which we are absolutely delighted with. 
If you've ever seen USA MTV 'Pimp-My-Ride' and the before and after of the Customer dropping-off and then picking up their car, and their amazement at the transformation, that was us! 
If we ever again needed a body repair or paint finish, they are our first port of call. DCW being based out of London might put some people off, but it's absolutely worth it, for the finish and service you will get - don't waste your money elsewhere. 
Think of all the best and most complimentary words Fantastic, Wonderful, Outstanding, Beautiful, Exciting….etc etc and these still wouldn't sum up how we feel about the Craftsmanship shown by Nick and Jason. 
They made the whole process a genuine pleasure for us and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. 
(If you're still not convinced you're welcome to contact us via Nick and Jason - we have no affiliation to DCW but will happily buy shares if they ever went public!)" Ron & Sham with a fabulous PORSCHE 997 GEN-2 RON and SHAM from LONDON TOWN ​29 April 2011

"​I just wanted to share how delighted I am with the full repaint of my Porsche that Nick and Jason carried out. Absolutely top-notch workmanship and the car looks as good as the day it rolled out of the factory, if not better. I can wholeheartedly recommend Dunmow Coachworks and will certainly be using them again for any bodyshop requirements. Well done to them for creating a successful business through quality and customer service in these difficult times." Joel Hopwood
