We promise to only have skilled craftsmen working on your car, and to always have a complete range of services available.

From minor body repairs to full car resprays, we have the needs of our Tunbridge Wells, Crowborough, East Grinstead, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge customers well and truly covered.

Should you need us for insurance work or accident repairs, the team at Hillary’s Coachworks is here to help with those too.

Our ability to repair and restore classic models of any age is a major benefit to choosing our company, but we can take on car body repairs on models from any era. It doesn’t matter to us if your car came off the production line just a day or decades ago; we’ll still treat it with the same levels of care and respect we’ve shown since starting out around 1810.

First-Class Car Body Repair Facilities

One of the biggest concerns our customers normally have is how well we can match the colour on their cars. Body repairs require us to either remove paint to deal with dents, to restore damage to the paintwork after a collision, or to refinish new panels if we replace an old one. It makes sense that an owner will have worries. Some repairers don’t even have a mixing scheme onsite and order in paint by code.

We have a modern mixing scheme installed from ICI, one of the world’s biggest and best-known automotive paint suppliers.

Hillary’s Coachworks also has a low-bake oven to help us produce faster, cleaner paint finishes. We can match older period colours on classics just as easily as we can match the modern metallic finishes on cars from the current age.
