Vehicle repairs are our life. The importance of keeping your commercial vehicle on the road is paramount and we recognise this fact by providing you with the one-stop shop that will enable you to return the vehicle to service with minimal downtime.
Commercial Bodyworks Ltd was established in 1997 and the current directors Andrew Carver and Graham Smith took over the business in 2002. Commercial Bodyworks along with Fleet Commercial Services, a sister Company, provide mutually beneficial services to fleet operators where cost, minimal downtime, quality repairs and maintenance are paramount.
As part of the Directors’ strategy they understood the importance of providing the one point of contact for all repairs for not only HGV trailers but also HGV trucks. With this in mind they set about gaining various partnerships with trailer and truck manufacturers and were subsequently honoured to be awarded the Top UK Service Partner for Schmitz Cargobull.
This then developed into providing not only workshop accident repairs for trailer manufacturers and our customers but also to roadside assistance 24/7. Commercial Bodyworks carry out these repairs to a high standard using trailer manufacturers’ approved methods of repair ensuring retention of the structural warranty. We up-keep these methods of repair by regularly sending our Bodyshop Technicians to the manufacturers to be trained in the latest methods of repair.
In one area of specialised HGV trailer repair we have achieved recognition for our expertise in refrigerated truck and trailer repairs. Now many customers rely on us to carry out these specialised repairs, as they now recognise the importance of maintaining manufacturers’ structural warranty and thermal properties.
Commercial Bodyworks operates from a large 3 acre site and is strategically placed at the A14 / A1 interchange near St Neots in Cambridgeshire, on one of the busiest road networks servicing the industry and ports of the East / South East and industry in the Midlands and the North. Commercial Bodyworks provide coverage from Nottingham to Heathrow (in the North and South) and from Norwich to Daventry (in the East and West).
Commercial Bodyworks site has over 25,000 sq. ft. of workshop space providing over 12 bays for trailers (double deck and standard height) and trucks to be repaired, a 60ft spray booth that can accommodate double deck trailers as well as car derived vans.
One of the key points to a successful commercial bodyshop is not only the facilities but also knowledge and the retention there-of. Taking an internal view on the Company it was noted that we have over 240 years’ experience in the commercial vehicle / trailer industry so we are more than capable of providing the support and care required to return customers’ trailers to the road with the minimal of downtime. Alongside the experienced staff we have employed apprentice trainees to ensure that the knowledge is not only maintained but shared with the up-coming youngsters of today.
We pride ourselves with continuity of personnel where you, as the customer, can often contact us and speak to the same person each time. Most often customers will not only have direct line of contact with the management structure but also to Andrew and Graham, the Directors.
