The car was restored to good as new in exactly one week

10-01-18 - My Skoda Octavia Estate had sustained considerable crash damage, and GA authorised Eastend Coachworks to repair it. The car was restored to good as new in exactly 1 week, and a nearly new Fiesta supplied as a courtesy car during this time. Easy to get an update on progress. When I left the premises, a warning light came on. On returning to reception, they identified this as a blown headlight bulb and fixed it immediately FOC- even though this was a totally separate issue to the crash repair! Great service, my car back as if accident had never happened.

Car returned good as new!

19-11-17 - Car with complex crash damage was repaired as good as new in one week. Easy to contact, and obtain update on progress. When I departed with the repairedcar, an unknown warning light illuminated immediately. I took the car back, they recognised it as a blown light bulb, which they fixed FOC, even though it was nothing to do with the crash repair. No complaints at all, and courtesy car was a very new Fiesta.

Service was second to none

13-02-18 - After unfortunately having a collision with my vehicle Eastend Coachworks provided a first class service from start to finish very courteous and helpful staff. There was a delay in a part for my vehicle and had to wait a lot longer than I thought for my repair to be completed but have to say when the part did arrive the speed of service was second to none. I have my car back looking like new. Grateful thanks to these guys for their professional workmanship.

The repair quality was excellent

16-08-17 - I recently was unfortunate enough to have damaged my Audi A3 and my insurer initially directed me to their own repairer. But after talking to some friends, I was recommended to Eastend Coachworks and subsequently chose them although I came up against some opposition from my insurers. I am glad I listened to my friends as the repair quality was excellent, I admit I am obsessed with my car, but I could not fault them, thank you for the excellent service. Joe Ferry.
