LeeC-242 - Nissan Navara Bodywork Repair
"Alspray did an exceptional job of repairing my pickup truck that had quite substantial damage at the rear quarter. Alan went above and beyond to make sure the job was done to the best possible outcome, he even buffed out one or two extra scuffs without me asking! I would 100% recommend using Alspray for your vehicle repairs."
StG-1 - No paint dent repair
"Alan those repairs you did to my s-max were unbelievable. Recommend you anytime and at a very reasonable price."
MichaelR-110 - Fantastic job done
"Yet again Alspray has done a fantastic repair job for us. This time on our 10 month old Ford Ka, it needed the door and rear side panel repairing as they were badly dented. It looks as good as new and as usual Alan was very helpful."
"Many thanks Mike Ridley-Smith"

"My son's car was vandalised (spray paint on bonnet) and I called Alan mainly as he has more reviewers on Yell than anyone else. He couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. He stopped his booked-in work and sorted out the car and luckily was able to avoid a very expensive re-spray by managing to get the paint off for a very reasonable cost of £20. Top man!!"

"Excellent repair and respray job on my Jaguar XF. Pleased with quality of work and done on time. Alan showed photos of the work at various stages and showed me previous repair work, that I didnt know about that he uncovered. Cost very reasonable."

mark886 - VW Beetle
"Alan is very helpful & knowledgeable on all car body repairs. He has repaired a damaged rear bumper to our 2006 Beetle. The workmanship is fantastic & the colour match is flawless. I would recommend anyone with with a damaged vehicle give Alspray a visit before you go anywhere else-you won't be disappointed. Thank you again for the superb job."
touslecoq - Highly recommended!!
"I've used Alspray several times over past few years for respray work, spot repair and machine polishing. You can rely on an honest recommendation, very reasonable prices and a superb quality finish. I've seen everything from prestige sports to family saloons come out of his workshop and all with the same exceptional finish."
MattF38 - Saved by my local body shop!
"Having been let down and disappointed in the past getting bodywork repaired to my vehicles, I googled a small body shop local to me in the North East called "Alspray". And I'm so glad I did. Alan took me through everything I needed done to my Passat - and the end result was better thank I expected. Completed on time and at the price, which was way below prices quoted by others. Alan is a competent operator with many years of experience, that gives you the confidence to know, that you are in good hands and as such i would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. A+++."
"Good advice and excellent quality repair to dent and scratches on rear bumper and wheel arch of our Black BMW Z4. Alan also identified other scratches on the car and was able to machine polish the affected areas to a high standard. Friendly, professional service and no hesitation in recommending Alspray."
“We were recommended to come to you by Cllr Marc Donnelly when we needed some work done on our vehicle. We are delighted with the work you have done and will be happy to recommend you in the future.” Pat and David Hillicks
“I paid more than twice as much for my 350Z than I did for my last car, my pride and joy. Then a bump by a colleague at work and an insurance job to repair it. Not a bad job (their insurance) , bet it was expensive though. Then disaster, within 3 months I over rubbed a scratch on my bonnet. Just kept getting worse and worse the more I tried to correct it. Proper mess really. Took it to Alspray and he proved to be just what the testimonials’ said. Done with care and polished to a beautiful mirror finish. Good job, I'd say the better one, first class human being too. Thanks Alan, got my pride and joy back didn't I. Another very satisfied customer. Malcolm Clark
“I wanted to register what a good job you did on my Subaru, the back bumper had been badly dented and I’d been to lots of other garages to get quotes including the Subaru specialist garages, all of which said the job was impossible and a new bumper bar had to be ordered and re-sprayed. You saved me a couple of hundred pounds today, the repair is immaculate. I can’t tell where the repair was! Thank you for a great job.” Ben
”I have used Alspray for three of my cars to be repaired in the last 4 months and have to say that the standard of work is nothing short of superb. 1. Fiat 500 rear panel needed a fix after a trolley hit it in Asda - Alan had the car for 3 days and it came back as good as new. 2. VW Tiguan with a dent on the front door, right on the crease, to be honest I thought new door skin. Alan's magic had it fixed within a couple of hours, great job done. 3. Finally my very precious 72 year old classic Ford needed some spray work - bonnet, boot and running boards. He has done a wonderful job. The cost of all these jobs has been very reasonable, particularly compared to other firms. I have nothing but admiration how Alan can achieve such fantastic results with as good as, or even better than, the factory finish - thank you so much.”
Mike Ridley-Smith (An extremely happy customer)
”A combination of a previous owner's botched paint repair, coupled with my own poor attempts to repair it myself, left Alan a difficult job to restore the paint finish on my Chevrolet Corvette. However Alan did a superb job in very good time for me to proudly show off my car at a local car show. Thanks very much Alan and I wouldn't hesitate to use your services again. ” David Robson - Audio Visual Technician, ISS - AV Services, Newcastle University
“Just had 2 annoying dents removed from my Astra, car looks perfect again. Service was faultless and repair time less than 90 minutes. Will definitely use again and recommend to anyone for quality workmanship at an affordable price. Thanks Alspray.” Paul Greenfield
“Thanks very much for the superb job you did in respraying the rear n/s door and rear quarter panel on my 2008 metallic silver Qashqai during August 2009. The paint match is fantastic, the price was half that quoted from the dealer and the car was ready for pick-up within a couple of days. A very professional service from a very nice person who I would recommend to anyone and would definitely use again. Very high quality workmanship. Thanks again from a very satisfied customer.” Graeme Hood
“I recently bought a new car, a really sporty silver Mercedes, and was devastated when on only the second day managed to get a dent in my driver’s door when the wind blew my wife’s car door wide open on my driveway. I was gutted and took it to a well known body shop in Gateshead to have it repaired. The damage was not much, it was a 3 inch crease under the mirror on the drivers door. The quote to repair was nearly £300 and again i was gutted. I did some trawling on the internet and found this company by chance and noticed they carried out 'Paintless' body work repair. Alan had the car fixed in under an hour and at a fraction of the cost.Excellent work, will definitely use again and recommend to friends.” Paul Hewson (Satisfied customer)
“I recently took my 11 month old car to Alan to have him look at some damage to the front offside wing, (damage that I had caused myself). I had thoughts of having to replace the entire wing. Alan worked his magic and within two hours of my dropping the car off, not only had he removed all the dents from the wing he had even repaired the odd scratch elsewhere on the car. When I returned the car looked immaculate and at a cost that I could not believe. First class workmanship from a very helpful and pleasant man. I won't go anywhere else in future. 10/10.” Barry Foster (A VERY satisfied customer)
“Just collected my SAAB from Alan and what else can I say apart from fantastic service and a great job. Went to get quotes from other body shops and they said they could not fix it and would have to replace the whole boot and bumper. Visited to Alan for a quote and after having my car 3 I have my car back as good as new with some additional work carried out free! The paint match is spot on and there is no evidence of having a fractured bumper and dented boot at all. Would certainly recommend Alspray to anyone who's car needs some tlc, very satisfied with the quality of the work carried out! Will definitely use him again.” Adam Williamson
“I have used Alspray for a number of years and he has repaired various vehicles on my behalf ranging from Porsches, BMW’s, and Range Rovers.The level of professionalism from Alspray has been superb. All the cars that have been repaired by Alspray have been finished to an immaculate standard. Alspray now do all the repair work for both my family's cars and the business cars. Alan delivers a personal, professional service and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any repairs to any vehicle.” Malcolm Graham - Partner /sfm legal services TVTE
“Just a quick note to pay testament to the quality of the work you did on my GT3. When I brought the car in there were many of the usual stone chips all along the front, some of which had evidently been poorly touched up before, as well as stone marking behind the front wheels on the bottom of the sills. I wasn’t expecting miracles as I was keen to avoid the cost of a full front end re-spray but have to say I was hugely impressed with the amount of work you performed for the price and the overall high quality of the finish. All sign of the stone chips, both new and old had completely gone and the colour match was perfect! I’d thoroughly recommend your services to anyone looking for the specialist care provided by an independent and the exceptional finish of a true paint repair expert.” Chris Walker - Accenture
“I have been a client of Alspray’s for the last three years and they have successfully helped me with a series of repairs over that time. Alan is very helpful in diagnosing and identifying issues and his work has always been to a high standard. Alan has always done his best to ensure that my vehicle is returned to me on time, within budget and often with a number of additional improvements made at no extra charge. I recommend him to others and hope that those reading this testimonial will have some reassurance that he will if given an opportunity deliver a first class service.” Julian Ringer - Managing Director, SEQM Ltd
“I have used Alspray for over 10 years to repair damage to my range of classic and performance cars. The work on every occasion has been meticulously executed and invariably has cost me much less than I would have paid elsewhere. I would not consider going anywhere else. Alan also does a superb job of machine polishing undamaged cars to give them that "new car" look.” Brian J McGurk - Collingwood properties uk
