Hi Scott and Brett, We just wanted to say thank you very much to you and the team for restoring our new baby car to her former glory! You have done a great job and we have already recommended you to our neighbour! Kind regards Adele and Bernard Mathieu

Adele Mathieu

Fantastic job – so lovely to see my “old lady” back and looking as good as new! Once again, many thanks to Scott and his team for a job well done and with courtesy throughout.

Christine Bowman

This is the first time I have used fairlight coachworks and I can truly say it was the best experience of any garage I have dealt with previously.
Scott and his colleagues were lovely, straight-talking and patient in explaining everything I needed to know.
My car looked brand new after the repairs were completed, just an amazing all round service, so I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Kat Matthews

Very pleased with the repairs and very very pleased with the service made everything easy to understand. A very helpful company will highly recommend. Many thanks to scott aswell.

Mrs Bonniface

Great service throughout, very professional and easy to talk to. They used a great accident management company that completely took all the stress away. Hopefully I don’t crash again but if I do I’ll defiantly know where to bring my car.

Luke King

Dear Scott and Team, a huge thank you for sorting out the body work on my car following a complete bodge job from a previous garage. Right from the start when I asked you for a second option on the work that had been carried out on my car to collecting my car today the service you provided has been excellent, the workmanship is fantastic. I wish I had come to you guys in the first place.

Can I just say a huge thank you to Scott and the team for such a high standard of work that you have completed on my car. I had the ultimate disaster, crashing into the back of someone in my Hyundai Kona 64kW full electric brand new car!!! This is Hyundai’s first full electric model with a big waiting list for it, so getting parts for mine to repair the car must have been a nightmare. It basically feels like i have picked this car up, brand new, twice!! The quality of the finish is perfect, your progress communication to me was much appreciated and I am extremely grateful, thank you. I will be contacting my Hyundai Dealership to let them know. Cheers Mike

Hi Scott and team, just wanted to say a huge thank you for an excellent repair on my Mitsubishi L200. Brilliant job excellent service from you and everyone involved from a speedy start to finish.

Roy Hillman

Very pleased with the service I have received from Fairlight Coachworks. My new-to-me car was only 6 days old when it was damaged in a car park, when parked and unoccupied – the other driver was still there and admitted liability. The insurance company (Aviva) made the whole process quick & easy and offered my a choice of 5 repairers – I chose Fairlight because they were nearest and had good reviews.
I booked the car in on line for Friday – on Monday Fairlight called to say they could fit it in sooner & I dropped it off later that day. They have kept in touch and rang me yesterday to say the car would be ready today, and rang at lunchtime today to say it could be collected at 4pm.
The repair is excellent and my car is as good as new. All the staff have been friendly, pleasant and helpful.
Highly recommended.

Barry Stockford

I would like to say a massive thank you to Scott, Brett and his team. From beginning to end the process was seamless. Scott & Brett were extremely helpful and efficient.

I was recommended by a friend to use this company after needing some bodywork repairs. When the repair could not be completed in the time slot Scott telephoned me to advise me of the problem and my car was ready as promised the next day.

Thanks again Scott for your professional expertise…..

Stay safe’n’well during these uncertain times – please…..

When I picked my car up yesterday, I was most impressed with the excellent quality of workmanship. From the reforming of the body work, to the matching and the application of the paint work, and to the final finishing. I was kept regularly informed as the work progressed, and additional items were happily included, despite how busy you are. A great achievement by a great staff.

Christopher Nightingale

A big thank you to you all. Excellent work, very professional from start to finish. Even dealt with my insurance company for me. I was kept informed throughout, would certainly recommend.

Anna Napolitano

Very good service and helpful. Car looks stunning after completion. Very clean and tidy. Excellent repair – Am amazed. Thankyou to everyone involved, appreciate the lifts to and from home also.

Jessica Taylor

Thank you too Scott and team at Fairlight, they did an excellent job getting my Dacia back on the road!! Job could have cost an arm and a leg but they sourced an alternative and saved me a shed load of money! Communication was excellent and job was done quickly. So a big thank you!!!

Sonia Page

Dear Scott I am delighted with the latest work you have just completed on my car, particularly the top door trim which you kindly included at no extra cost. You tend to treat a customers car as though it were your own, and seem genuinely pleased when it looks god. I must add that your personal attention did not go un-noticed. I felt like a VIP having a new courtesy car bought to me ready to drive away and similar treatment when I came to collect mine. I mat decide to ask you to clean up the last few bits of trim after the holiday as it now looks almost like a new car.

Richard Handyside

Nice people who know what they are doing, put at ease straight away. They took care of everything to do with the insurance etc. They also did a great job. Brilliant job Fairlight

M Tester

An excellent job and service, so I would thoroughly recommend and use again in the future.

Brian Breeds

Have to say it is nice to deal with a professional company for a change!!
Just excellent service!!

Sue Bagshaw

I had a tiny little dent on rear passenger door caused by a careless passenger opening the door of another car, parked ajacent. The repair done by fairlight seemed a little extensive (the whole side, bar the front wing) but I was advised this was better than a smart repair and
I must say the finished job is excellent.

Mr J D Allen
J D Allen Heating & Plumbing

Very courteous staff and friendly. Excellent results. Would recommend to friends and family
