Kind words from our customers


I have been a customer of Laycock's Collision Repairs for over 25 years, entrusting them with work on a variety of cars with various levels of repair skills required. Their standard of work and service has always met exacting standards and the business has always lived up to its well earned and lengthy reputation as eminent Canterbury collision repairs.

Thank you very much for a job on my Honda well done. Your co-operation in getting me to and from work each day was appreciated.

Thanks so much for doing such a great job on my car, it is very much appreciated.

Thanks again

Having collected my Ford Laser (TS 8734) from your premises last Friday following a relatively small repair job, I just feel prompted to drop you this short note of thanks.

It is all too rare these days for us to take time out to thank anyone for good service, but on this occasion I wish to do so and I hope my appreciation can be passed on to the person or persons who worked on my car. Firstly, of course, the repair work was carried out to a very high standard, but I was completely taken by suprise to find that someone had taken the trouble to vacuum and clean the interior of the car and this was so much appreciated. The finishing touch with the packet of sweets was a very nice touch - thank you again for a job well done.

We always hope it is not necessary to call on your services, but at least if the need arises I know where to come.

Yours sincerely

I just wanted you to know how impressed I was with the service that Laycock's delivered. We organised for someone to take me back to work, rang within an hour to say that they had located the leak, what it would involve to fix it, and the cost. To top it off he then organised for someone to drop the car to me, and I'd take them back to work.

I've not had service like that for ages.

Thanks for doing such a great job on my car and for returning it in such a great condition, and smelling so good. I really appreciated it, so my thanks to all the team.

I just wanted to send you a brief note to thank you for your recent help with panel and painting work on the Fire Engine.

Your efforts were truly appreciated by me on behalf on AMI, I would like you to accept this Smoke Alarm as a tangible recognition of your efforts. I trust you will find a suitable place to install it in your home, and that it will give you a feeling of additional security and protection for your family.

Kind regards, John

A note of appreciation for the repair work done on our Ford Escort Station wagon.

This is the first time we have had to engage the services of a panel and paint shop. We are very pleased with the service that Laycock's provided through such an inconvenient time. Special thanks to Ronnie Shields whom gave me the initial advice as to the procedure to follow to enable a trouble free claim to be processed. To all the staff involved pass on our thanks and we would have no hesitation recommending your firm to anyone that has the misfortune of needing repairs to their motor vehicle.

Yours faithfully

Just a quick note to say the work on the car looks even better in daylight. A job well done.

With thanks again, keep up the good work.

On behalf of the Barnett family, I would like to thank you all for you efficient friendly and professional service, that we received recently with the repair of our car. Your prompt and considerate assistance was greatly appreciated, and the extra care taken in presenting the car back to us, was impressive.

We will certainly recommend your services to others and rather hope we won't be requiring our car to see you!! (again!!)

Yours Sincerely
Clare Barnett

I am writing to express my gratitude at the customer service I received. My car was in to have a rear bumper bar replaced and due to the lousy weather on Friday I requested that I be picked up from The Civic Offices in Tuam Street. I wish to thank you very much for the service and to the Czech guy (sorry...I didn't get his name) who picked me up.

This was my second visit to Laycocks and I will be recommending your high level of service to others. Keep up the good work!

Kind Regards
Bronwyn Wyatt
P.S. The new bumper bar looks great too!

A small note to say "Thank you" for the effort you have put in to my Mirage. In today's "business world" there are few places that I feel truly realise the importance of customer service. I am pleased to say that; although at first I was not 100% satisfied - I now feel more than happy with the result. More than that, I believe you & your team went "that extra mile" with myself & my vehicle and I just want you to know that in the future I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires the services you offer (and in my field of rental vehicles there are quite a few of those people!).

Yours sincerely

I am writing to thank you so much for your help with my wee Mazda. The service was fantastic and I am telling everyone I know to use Laycocks. I will give you guys a call to have my tyres changed in the next two weeks.

Thanks once again for making a horrible day not so horrible.

Yours sincerely

Please accept our warmest thanks for the excellent work done under extreme circumstances to repair the Holden Calais of our General Manager yesterday.

The car suffered extensive frontal damage whilst being returned from a car grooming company. I believe that there is no other Panel Repair Company in Christchurch able to match the service given by Laycock's to repair, replace the damaged parts, and get the vehicle back on the road with the bumper colour matched in under four hours. L.S. Laycock's have now repaired three top executive vehicles belonging to Dunlop (all with as new results). I would have no hesitation in recommending your service to any body requiring a top class panel repair. Please feel free to use this letter or contact me direct for a verbal recommendation.

Our thanks go to you and your staff.

Kind Regards
