Company info

Creative Cars vehicle body repair specialists are based on the Dorset/Wiltshire border and are able to repair any type of damage to any type of vehicle from large impact damage to small dents and scratches. At Creative Cars we are also happy to undertake and offer advice on any project you may have from full restoration projects and re-sprays to custom vehicle modification projects.


Established in 2000 by father and son Mike and Chris Laidlaw, Creative Cars combine over 50 years of experience in the motor industry with some of the best products available to achieve top quality finishes at competitive prices. 


Creative Cars offer a free no obligation quotation service to all our private and trade customers who can contact us by telephone or email and arrange an appointment for us to assess the damage to their vehicle. Customers can either bring their vehicle to us or if it is not driveable we are happy to come to them.


Below is a list of our Services. For an initial quotation, or to discuss other work you may require, please call Creative Cars or email us.


Accident Damage - Creative Cars can cater for all types of accident damage you may have to your vehicle, from a small scratch on a bumper to a full body shell rebuild


Smart Repairs - For smaller repairs such as bumper scuffs, door mirror cover scratches or minor alloy wheel kerb damage where blending to an adjacent panel is not needed, these are classed as smart repairs and we aim to have these repaired in the same day.


Alloy Wheel Refurbishment - From kerb damage caused to one spoke or full refurbishment of a corroded alloy wheel, we aim to have these repairs carried out to a high standard finish from one to four days.


Jig Facilities - If your vehicle has had hard impact damage to the body shell our jig can pull almost all of this damage out to within one millimetre of how it was when it was built


Total Re-sprays - From a bare metal re-spray to a colour change or just a fresh coat of paint to rejuvenate a dull looking finish we can cater for whatever your requirements


Headlight lens lacquering - If your headlight lenses have faded we can lacquer these for you which is a lot cheaper than having to buy and fit replacements. Faded headlights can seriously affect your visibility while driving a night. If this affects the pattern of light coming out of them they may fail an MOT. By lacquering the headlight lenses they are crystal clear again as they would have been when they were new


Courtesy Car Available - We can provide you with a courtesy car fully insured while your car is being repaired by us. Please ask for more details when booking in.
