  • Car Detailing
  • All of the above on large vehicles (buses, trucks etc.)

How We Work

Efficiency –We don’t release any projects that we aren’t 100% happy with, and take advantage of the time we spend with our customers, getting to know what they need, so that as a body shop, we deliver correctly the first time, every time.

Honesty –At David Taylor Spray Paint & Panel Beating, we invite any of our customers to visit us at any point in time during opening hours to check on the progress we’ve made with their vehicle. On our bigger projects, we photographically document our work before, during and after the work has been completed – and provide our customers with these on a USB when the job is completed.

Affordability –We don’t cut prices at the cost of quality, however with the highest quality in the market as our benchmark, we leverage our decades of experience working with suppliers, vendors, our own processes etc. in order to make our services as affordable as possible. The team of professionals at our body job spend the time to find out about your time and budget restrictions, and do our best to work within these.
