Classic Car Repair in Tunbridge Wells with the Traditional Accident Repair Specialist

There are very few companies in Southern England with as steeped a history as Hillary’s Coachworks. Our workshop, located in Tunbridge Wells, is a trusted name in the field of accident repairs and car body repairs. We’ve warmly embraced innovation but have never lost the traditional feel of a company that first started out around the turn of the 19th Century, and which is still very much around today.

While we excel in accident, car body and bumper repairs, many of our customers know us as a classic car repair and classic car restoration specialist. This is quite understandable.

Hillary’s Coachworks open its doors around 1810 and initially traded as a coach and carriage maker. At one stage, we even had a special warrant issued to build coaches for the Royal Family. Our services changed with the advent of the automobile and the classic car repair and classic car restoration jobs we see now were once a daily part of our working lives.

Today, we still work on classic vehicles and we have a passion for this field that will never die, but we also undertake work on modern cars, For motorists in Tunbridge Wells who need high-end accident repairs or car body repairs, we can help.

From single panel and bumper repairs, to complete restorations and resprays, the team at Hillary’s Coachworks does it all.
