Woodland Bodyshop

Why Use Us

We formed Woodlands Bodyshop, our independent Body Repair Business, in December 1995, by expanding our existing Car Sales Business Woodland Autos which was established in 1990. Woodlands Bodyshop has grown over the years, and now supports a staff of 15 highly experienced, industry qualified, and loyal employees. Our  Bodyshop Manager, Rob Denham has been with us since day one, and has enjoyed a full and varied career in the Body repair Industry since leaving school, qualifying as a Paint Sprayer and Panel Beater before his successful venture into Management in 1995.

We are extremely proud that almost 50% of our staff have been with us for 10 years or more. As a “Husband and Wife” team, we pride ourselves in the very high level of quality workmanship and customer care we are able to, and strive to offer. Using the latest advancement in body repair and paint technology, access to the up to date repair methods, computerised colour matching schemes and anti corrosion application methods and equipment, we are able to repair all makes and models, irrespective of age or condition, to replicate the finish achieved when the car was new.

We recently acquired a “Symach” Drying Arch, a state of the art piece of equipment which allows us to “Bake” the fresh paint applied to a panel in a matter of minutes, compared to almost an hour by the older technology. This not only helps our own throughput, but also achieves a much better and consistent paint finish. The paint is cured so hard in these short few minutes, it allows the newly painted panel to be polished and be exposed to the elements immediately, and ensures much better longevity for the repaired areas. This in turn adds value to the repair, by ensuring the “invisible” repair will mean better residual value for the vehicle when it comes to be sold.

Becoming a “Peugeot Approved” Accident Repair Centre in 2008, has allowed us access to the very latest technology, methods and systems employed in the modern motor car. We are able to transfer this knowledge to all the repairs we undertake, and this consistent high level or repair and customer service we achieve, is supported by the high number of repeat and referred business we enjoy.
