Arron Shaw - New Again
Accident Clean up
Fire & Flood Damaged Vehicles
Arron is the newest member of our team having been with us since 2007, before which he was in property development and management. He has brought skills to the job which he has put to good use managing project cars, especially those damaged by fire and flood which is rapidly becoming his specialty.
Arron is also involved with lease return inspections.
Geoff is very experienced in all forms of Smart Repair technique -- he used to teach the subject! Like many of our experts, working on cars runs in the family and Geoff is the son of a coach trimmer, and has been involved in vehicle repair most of his life.
The area where Geoff really excels is in the repair of scuffs and scrapes on vehicle exteriors and this is what he'll be answering questions on. So please send in your photos.
