Car Body Repairs in Hitchin

Covering Barton-le-Clay and the Surrounding Areas

At Bowles Garage, we believe that an accident should never be given the chance to become a crisis. If you and your vehicle are involved in a collision, or if your pride and joy suffers superficial damage because of a wayward supermarket trolley, an adjacent parked car or even your own keys when fumbling for the lock, we can help. Our workshop in Hitchin can undertake cosmetic and car body repairs on any model.

Private or insurance work, Bowles Garage welcomes customers from nearby Barton-le-Clay, and from all locations in the surrounding North Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire areas.

If you weren’t at fault in an accident, we can manage your claim and liaise with third-party insurers, and with their assessors. This means that you don’t have to go through the trials and tribulations of getting work approved, or your insurer trying to make your have car body repairs undertaken at a bodyshop in their own approved repairer network.

It is ultimately your own choice as to where you have your car repaired. It is not the choice of your insurance company.

Modern Bodyshop Facilities

We have excellent facilities at our workshop that enable us to undertake car body repairs to a high standard. Bowles Garage has a low-bake oven that reduces VOC emissions, controls airborne contaminants and reduces paint drying times. We also have an integrated paint mixing scheme that allows us to match colours perfectly. Colour matching is the biggest concern most motorists have when they leave their cars with us for repairs.

This is never a problem for our valued customers in Hitchin and Barton-le-Clay. We have advanced computerised equipment in place that helps us to achieve an accurate match on every job.

Bowles Garage has skilled panel beaters and paint sprayers, and the facilities required to turn out a significant number of finished car body repairs every week. All work completed goes through a strict inspection process. We never hand back the keys to your car until we’ve restored it to pre-accident condition and achieved the perfect showroom finish.

Our workshop has the following systems in place:

  • Modern car body and chassis alignment system
  • Mixing room with branded paint tinters
  • Booth extraction to keep paint uncontaminated
  • Low-bake oven for faster drying times
  • Workshop extraction to keep your car clean
  • Cutting and polishing equipment for a mirror finish

We urge you to never give up on your right to have car body repairs completed at the garage of your choosing. Just because an insurer wants to centralise work to a faceless bodyshop you know nothing about, it doesn’t mean you have to comply. Your car means your choice. We advise motorists in Hitchin, Barton-le-Clay and the surrounding areas to always remember this.

Your satisfaction could depend on it.
