Welcome to the CL Panelcraft Website
If your vehicle has been in an accident and needs repair then we can help you. We’ve seen all manner of scraped, dented and crumpled vehicles over the last three decades and we know exactly how you feel. You want your vehicle back to pristine condition, with a guarantee of the workmanship and you want it done timely with as little fuss as possible.
Don’t be pressured by your vehicle insurer to use their appointed repair agent, you don’t have to, let us take care of everything. We can collect your vehicle, leave you with a loan car and have your vehicle repaired at our professional repair centre.
We’re based in Braintree and operate throughout Essex and beyond.
