Car Body Repairs in Tunbridge Wells | Covering Sevenoaks and all Locations in Kent

Hillary’s Coachworks first started out in the 1800s as a family-run company of carriage builders. We are still family-owned and family-run today, but our methods have changed somewhat to combine the best in modern car body repairs with a classic car restoration service that’s unrivalled in Kent. We are one of the oldest coach builders in Southern England, but we also offer everyday services like plastic bumper repairs.

Our company works out of premises in Royal Tunbridge Wells and we have formerly held a Warrant to make carriages for the Royal Family. Accident repairs or classic car repairs, we have Crowborough, East Grinstead, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and all surrounding locations in the Kent area covered.

Attention to detail and heritage are the cornerstones of our business, and we apply both to assure you outstanding results from some of the region’s most skilled engineers.

About Hillary’s Coachworks

The company started trading around 1810, building horse-drawn coaches. Near the turn of the century, we began making bodies for horseless carriages. We were a small business then, and we are a small business now, so we know a thing or two about the important personal touch. Combined, we have 240 years of staff experience. With an established reputation in classic car repairs and classic car restoration, Hillary’s Coachworks excels in customer service and quality of workmanship.

While tradition means everything to us, we still have a modern outlook on car body repairs. Our workshop in Tunbridge Wells has innovative facilities including a low-bake oven. This means we can perform accident repairs on classic cars or contemporary models with the promise of fast turnaround times.

Our customers come to us from the surrounding Crowborough, East Grinstead, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge areas, and from all locations across Kent and Southern England.

Hillary’s Coachworks uses modern paint and colour matching systems so, even with single panel and bumper repairs, we can still promise an excellent match. We only use original parts and for classics, we can have bespoke parts manufactured.

Our Business Credentials

We extend a warm welcome to customers from the private sector, and to fleet managers and members of the trade. We also undertake repairs and restorations for classic car enthusiasts and club members. Importantly, we are members of the National Body Repair Association (NBRA). All staff working for our company are seasoned professionals, and each of them have served apprenticeships for their respective trades.

We carry appropriate levels of insurance across all categories including premises, public liability and road risk. Your car is always protected while on our premises.

Our staff use quality 3M products and consumables.
