John Grose DS Accident Repair

At John Grose we know that having an accident is never a pleasant experience.  We aim to make dealing with your vehicle repair and your insurance company following an accident trouble free, plus to return your vehicle to its pre-accident condition and getting you back on the road as quickly as possible.


We offer car and van repair whatever the make and model, we are approved by most major insurance companies and we have been awarded bsi. ‘The British Standards Institution’ Vehicle Damage Repair KITEMARK, which means we exceed the industry standard for vehicle damage repair.  We’re very proud to achieve bsi. KITEMARK status as this is only given to repairers who have the technical competence, management systems and procedures to operate and perform to the highest standards.

‘It is a little-known fact that even if your insurance company recommend another repairer, you can still choose where your vehicle is repaired.’

If you decide not to go through your insurance company, or you have a minor scratch or dent you would like repaired, we offer individual customers the same high level of service and are happy to deal with you direct.  Getting rid of that annoying scratch or dent could cost less than you think, contact us for a quote today.
