What an amazing Job completed today by James of Up to Scratch. The bonnet which had scratches from a car wash looks as good as new. The handle on my rear window hatch is completely gone and the new paint job looks great. The solution to the deep scratch on my rear bumper has worked a treat too. And just as important the cost of all of this work was extremely reasonable. Very pleased with all of this work I can highly recommend James to anyone needing some scratch repairs done on their car.

James made a simply excellent job of sorting out a carelessly acquired bumper scuff on my otherwise shiny new Volvo SUV. He is a most friendly and helpful gentleman and something of a perfectionist in this line of work, so I would recommend his services unhesitatingly.

What a brilliant job James did came to do a bumper and ended up doing my sons alloy as well which looks like its new. Texted the night before to let us know what time he would arrive which is very polite. Very nice chap and a great trader was here from 8.15 to 3.15 what a grafter. Will be passing his number on to friends and family as he's mobile as well which is great. Thanks a lot James.

Fantastic from James. I contacted him on Thursday as someone had scuffed my wife's car. James came out to us on the Saturday and completed all of the work. Standard of the work was exceptional and I also found James to be a very pleasant and amicable person. Great job!

James was given photos by myself of a few indents, deep scratches, cracks in my paintwork and light washer jet on my bumper. He said yes I can sort that for you matey. Not knowing what to expect, I left my car with him for 4 hours while I went to work. Feeling a bit anxious all day not knowing what to expect as my bumper was in a mess, I was delighted when I got back later that day and seen what he has done. There is only 1 word that can describe what I seen... Perfection! Bumper looks like new.... no cracks... no indents and paint work is perfect. Cant thank him enough and I shall be passing his number on with as strong message to say I wouldst recommend anyone else.

What can I say about the work James has just completed on my vehicle - absolutely faultless! He arrived on time and is such a nice guy, so polite and helpful and even offered advice on how I can further protect my vehicle, how great is that? James is a perfectionist and his work shows this! The car now looks brand new again. I will be recommending James at Up to Scratch to everyone I know and he now has a customer in life right here as I could not be more thrilled with his service! Happy customer indeed!

Cannot fault the repair carried out by James. We agreed a price and date for the repair and I received a text the day before to confirm the time of arrival. James carried out the work to an excellent standard that would have cost far more in a repair shop. You would not believe it was possible to achieve the quality of work when it had been carried out on a driveway.

I had 3 alloy wheels repaired on a 10 month old BMW M2. Was told my another company they couldn’t repair them due to the type of alloy wheel (Diamond Cut). Up to scratch however had no problem at all with this type of wheel and they look as good as new now. Great workmanship and very punctual, friendly and professional.

James has done work for me a number of times from small dents to larger cracks and scrapes. I’ve always been delighted with the quality of the work. On each occasion the car has been good as new, you would never know it had been damaged. He is overwhelmingly positive and proactive and offers fantastic value for money.

James from Up To Scratch, went above and beyond when working on my car, the rear of my car was dented and scratched quite badly. He only came to repair the scratches on my car and another car that I had work on. I came out to find, not only was he repairing the scratches, but trying to get the dent out of my car too (which he did a great job)! I was very happy with the service received, he is a genuinely nice person. He spent most of his Saturday on my drive in the freezing cold and did an exceptional job. I will be contacting him in the near future to get a few more scratches repaired!

Split bumper and paint damage repair

Rear bumper split repaired and bumper sprayed due damage from a low speed shunt. When I called James he answered immediately and was very polite and courteous, he explained what he did and how the repair would be completed. He supplied a quote within hours and booked me in to complete the repair at my home for convenience. James was punctual and explained how he was going to repair the bumper. The work took several hours and was completed to a very high standard, I could not see where he had completed the repair and assumed he had painted the entire bumper not just the damaged area. I cannot recommend him enough... Up to Scratch was professional, honest and completed the repair to a very high standard.

I had a repair done on my wife's car by Up To Scratch Repairs and the job was nothing short of superb. The wing on the car was badly damaged but the workmanship was outstanding, in fact you wouldn't have known at all that there had been an accident. I have also used James on other occasions and being a perfectionist he is very particular about all aspects of his work. His service is both highly professional and very friendly. Look no further if you want an outstanding job all round.
