WHEN a chip to a car's paintwork or an urgent body repair is required then it makes sense to use a specialist service like ChipsAway.
An appointment at the car care centre in Corby can bring a vehicle back to its pristine best and put a smile back on the owner's face.
The centre in conveniently located South Folds Road is operated by Jeremy Lines who heads up a team with more than 35 years' experience. The combination of their know-how, attention to details and access to specialist equipment can make a real difference at a fraction of the cost of traditional body shop repair methods.
Jeremy took over the franchise just a year ago after working at the centre for a number of years.
"We get all sorts of jobs at the workshop and believe in offering a cost-effective service to a very high standard," said Jeremy, who said they have worked on anything from a vintage car to a vehicle straight off the forecourt.
Services include paintwork scratches, bumper scuffs, alloy wheel damage and minor dents. The colour matching is made simpler thanks to a spectrometer, a hi-tech scientific instrument that can quickly analyse the make-up of the paint.
Jeremy said: "The equipment certainly makes our job a lot easier and enables us to make the perfect match."
Customers come from across the area from Market Harborough, Oakham, Kettering and Oundle to make full use of the workshop's service. ChipsAway, since being set up more than 20 years ago, has grown into the largest network of repair specialists in the United Kingdom. Regular assessments are undertaken to ensure each car care centre is maintaining its high standards.
Jeremy said: "It is important to us that ChipsAway is seen as the place to call by anyone with a vehicle that wants to get rid of a scratch or scuff without making a dent in their pocket."
