Even the best drivers occasionally have an accident and need their car repairing – that’s just part of driving.
But Keighley Kicks’ latest supporter offers a top-quality, value-for-money service to relieve the stress of having your car body repaired.
Whether it’s dents, scratches or stone chips or major vehicle restoration, Skipton Body Repair Centre Ltd has the expertise to ensure a top-quality repair.
Visit the centre in Engine Shed Lane, Skipton, or call 01756 792412 for a free estimate.
For emergency work and advice, there is also a 24-hour number you can contact – 07710 412591.
Co-owner Tony Piotrowicz, who is also the manager of Bradley Football Club, said: “We run a complete car accident repair service to help take the stress out of any accidents you might be unfortunate enough to have.
“Although that is our main source of work, we do all types of body work.
“We also repair and refurbish alloy wheels and sell tyres, as well as fitting rear parking sensors.”
Alloy wheel repairs are an increasing part of the business and the specialist equipment needed meant they could branch out into selling tyres.
Tony and his team can get any make or size of tyre, normally within half-a-day.
Rear parking sensors can be fitted and painted for £200 plus VAT, although there is a 20 per cent discount if fitted while the vehicle is in for repair.
But it’s not all about making money. Skipton Body Repair Centre is proud to offer good old-fashioned service.
“We give advice freely and often that means a customer doesn’t actually have to spend anything at all,” said Tony.
“But they do remember how helpful we have been and come back in the future when they do need work doing.
“It’s all about giving a good service and our reputation spreads by recommendations and word of mouth. Most of our trade is return business.”
With more than half a century of experience between the repair team, nothing fazes them when it comes to body work, whether it’s a cherished family saloon or a works van.
“There’s seven in the team in total,” said Tony. “It means we’re small enough to care but big enough to cope with any car accident repairs professionally and efficiently with the minimum stress for our customers.”
The centre is open six days a week but on call 24-hours a day every day of the year and celebrate their 20th anniversary next April.
Skipton Body Repair Centre was set up by Tony and business partner Peter Watson in 1993.
They started doing body repairs only but the business has grown from there with a major expansion of the size of the premises to include two huge ovens for baking the paint after the vehicles have been resprayed. One is large enough to fit a large van, Sprinter size.
The centre contains all the latest state-of-the-art technology, with a wide range of paints and computer-matching equipment to get a perfect match for any vehicle.
And it is environmentally friendly with water-based paint used.
“We give a good friendly service – we’re the repairer that cares,” said Tony.
“I’ve been in this trade all my life and spent almost 12 years at Vale Lane garage in Haworth before setting up here.
“Most of our work comes from within a 25-mile radius and includes Keighley, Bradford and Burnley.”
Handily placed on the outskirts of Skipton, the centre has seven courtesy cars available to keep hassle to a minimum while the customer is without their usual transport.
The bulk of Skipton Body Repair Centre’s work comes from insurance claims and they are skilled at helping people through all the claim.
“We are proud to boast we offer more personal service than the main dealers,” said Tony.
“We are constantly striving to progress and adapt to industry change and are always one step ahead of the game, investing in the most up-to-date hi-tech equipment.
“Although always highly-professional in all we do, we pride ourselves on our ‘non-pushy’ relaxed attitude to all of our customers.
“We offer third party accident assistance and will gladly lead you from start to finish of your insurance claim.
“We understand how stressful an accident can be and that’s why we take our entire accident repair and car repair jobs very seriously.
“We take pride in restoring your car back to its pre-accident condition (and better in many cases!), making sure any accident repair jobs are carried out with the utmost professionalism.”
And it’s not only vehicles the centre looks after, they are also proud to be supporting youngsters in the community.
As well as getting school leavers into employment via an apprenticeship scheme, they also welcome work experience pupils.
