Mill Road garage in West Wight is a small independent garage that undertakes general mechanical work and repairs, MOT's and has a body shop with spray booth.
I have just been employed by Mill road garage body shop as a panel beater to join the existing painter/panel beater and we are keen to run it as a classic car restoration company.
We both have lots of experience with Mini's and enjoy working on them so the body shop would primarily specialize in the restoration of classic mini's
As we are on the Isle of Wight, we understand that this limit's our customer base somewhat so are discussing a collection and delivery service from the mainland. we would also plan to visit the car in person prior to this to prepare an estimate.
As well as this, the whole restoration process would be documented here on the forum in the projects section so that the customer can see exactly what is being done and this would be updated daily.
We can offer anything from a few small repairs to a major restoration and everything in between. Our painter can offer partial re-sprays right through to full resprays in standard colours or full custom paint jobs.
I take a lot of pride in my work and would treat any car as if it was my own and no detail would be left out.
We will be offering a payment plan so big jobs would be split down into sections and each set of jobs would be billed as they are completed to ensure that the customer is happy with each job as the restoration is carried out.
This is still very much early days. we have the premises, the facilities and the staff but just need the work to get it off the ground.
If anyone is interested in discussing any work or has any suggestions then please do get in touch.
I will update this thread as things progress and hope to see some of you soon
All the best
