Personal Profile

Having had a fascination with all things mechanical from an early age I knew I wanted to work in the automotive industry.

At the age of 14 an opportunity arose to work for a local Body-shop part time, the company specialised in custom and bespoke motor conversions and ignited my passion for specialist paint and repairs and I was hooked.

I completed a traditional 4 year apprenticeship resulting in a City & Guilds Panel Beating and Spraying qualification and now have 27 years experience in the motor repair trade, working in large and small bodyshops, smart repair and paintless dent removal, plus Estimating.

Due to the recession and the ever strengthening grip of the insurance companies, work decreased. Therefore I took a managerial position at a small body shop in London. I disliked the commute, long hours and my home life suffered, so I gave it up and became temporarily unemployed!

It was then that I decided the time had come to put all my previous experiences to good use and combine them to offer a good quality reliable repair service, without the cost of bodyshop overheads.

Auto Body Corrections was established April 2012.
