Why Choose Thorn Coachworks?

What our customers are saying

  • Great care and attention to detail, highly recommended Mark and David took on my classic Volvo at short notice and performed a near total respray within a few weeks, I was kept informed throughout, provided with a courtesy car when needed and the end result is fantastic. I’d not hesitate to recommend Thorn coachworks to anyone, the quality of the work is really very good and they’ll bend over backwards to accommodate you. 5 stars all round


    Absolutely fantastic After my car got hit whilst parked, the damage left behind was a large dent and large and deep scratches. This place was recommended by a neighbour and so I checked it out and then made arrangements to have it fixed. Picked it up after 2 days to find the scratches and dent non-existent. Also the price was cheap especially as it included VAT too. Definitely recommend this company, their work is phenomenal.

  • Bloody brilliant If you’re looking for a top paint job at very competitive prices, thorn coach works is for you.They completely resprayed my black Hilux after and awful paint job was done. The guys did a fantastic job can’t believe how good it looks, they also treated the underside to stop rusting and repaired any dents or damage they saw, looks brand new. Real nice friendly guys, genuine blokes. I highly recommend to anyone and I will be using them for any vehicle paint work I require in the future.Thanks again Thorn 👍


    Delighted. .thank you. Delighted with the work carried out. A genuine business run by genuine folk. This project was important to me for personal reasons… They were also very understanding when I couldn’t collect the car on time due to unexpected illness. Thank you David and Mark and I wish you well for the future. Good to find genuine hardworking folk who deliver an excellent result. Regards Paul.


    A great new coach works firm. Top quality work We were recommended to Thorn Coachworks and having mainly dealt with larger firms, I was initially concerned at their ability to do concourse standard work. I’ve just collected my Pininfarina Spyder and am delighted with the quality of the work, which is of show standard. It’s a small business recently started with both Mark and David enthusiastic about what they do, which shows in the end product. I’ll be having all my future car and bike paint/bodywork done there in the future!
