So impressed. Saw me straightaway. Helped fix a dent in the door - gave me good advice and a competitive estimate. 100% recommend.

Had some scratches on the FNS 1/4 panel and a mark caused by an overhanging bramble right down the N/S of my car. Both these were done shortly after buying it new 3 yrs ago and whilst I'd T Cut them to reduce their visibility they could still be seen fairly easily, particularly in bright sunlight. Got fed up looking at them so took the car to trader and they certainly lived up to their name. Both imperfections removed quickly and completely at a very acceptable price. Now the bad news, 2 days later, I again badly scratched the car on the same FNS panel as before and also included part of the vinyl bumper as well! Back to trader and once more they worked their magic and also gave me a discount. Can't recommend them highly enough. They are now in New Street, Chelmsford.

Many thanks to WhichLocal and to the reviewers for pointing me in the direction of K. Achillea. I had quite a big panel beating job to be done on my car. This was done very professionally and quickly, including matching metallic paint. I will certaainly use him again if the need arises.

Rob Nay uses specialist tools to remove dents in cars where the paint is unbroken. I sent pictures of the 2 dents in the door of my sports car and he provided a very reasonable quote - much cheaper than having the door filled and re-sprayed. He came over on the day / time agreed and despite finding an unexpected difficulty (a reinforcing strut overlapping the dents) he completed the job perfectly and to the price quoted. Amazing! The same technique can be used on larger dents as long as the paint is unbroken.

I obtained at least 4 quotes and trader although not the very cheapest were much cheaper than the top 2 quotes. They had good facilities including a baking oven. There were 2 other cheaper places but their facilities seemed limited with not much space for cars.

After being given an eyewatering estimate by the franchised dealer to repair a damaged bumper, I took the car to MD Motors near Palmers Green. Marek, who runs the show, has done a terrific job - the bumper is as good as new, the colour matching is excellent and and he also fixed several other blemishes which needed attention - and all on time and at a very reasonable price. I am glad I went there, would definitely use him again, and I am very happy to recommend him to others .

Can recommend. Garage is a tiny backyard in a small side street, next to a Vespa shop. K Achilles is a very reasonable guy, price was fine, remained unchanged and work was carried out really well.

As with all the other comments, Mr Achillea did a minor repair promptly and to my eyes the (small) damage was invisible. He was also nice to deal with and helpful.

Mr Achillea did a small repair to my new Honda Jazz which is indistinguishable from the original. It was finished promptly and I was very satisfied with his work.

Marek is friendly and does an excellent job at a very reasonable price. He has moved his business to the North Circular Rd next to the Jet petrol station in Palmers Green but we were able to contact him via the published mobile. We had body work repairs to the driver's side of my wife's Prius and now it looks new! Wish I had known about him 7 years ago when I last needed car body work done.

trader did an excellent job fixing my car. The people who work there are friendly and helpful, particularly Richard, Brian, Martine and Tony. Hope I've got your names right guys! You have been a pleasure to deal with.
