Award winning service

Everything we do is built around the same philosophy – to repair your vehicle and return it to its original condition – with the least amount of inconvenience to you.  We value all of our customers and actively encourage your feedback because your opinion matters.

Shorade have won an eclectic mix of awards and accreditations since we were established in 1968 because of these values from local ’Best of Business’ awards to Manufacturer awards such as ‘Bodyshop of the year’ – Porsche and more recently ‘Overall Bodyshop of the Year 2012′ – Volkswagen Group.

For our satisfaction process to be 100% effective we ask every customer if they are happy with the quality of experience and standard of work we have provided and if they believe we can improve in any areas. After all…… you are the reason we do what we do! Once you have received your vehicle back and have had time to asses everything we have done for you, our team will call you and ask three questions:

  • Were you satisfied with our customer service?
  • Were you satisfied with the work undertaken?
  • Would you recommend us?

We use an independent company to keep this completely objective.  Our scores are always very high – but even so, we’re always looking to improve in any way that we can so please let us know if you have any suggestions.  Any enquiries from feedback are responded to immediately and general feedback is reviewed monthly by the team.
