Massive thank you to Martin and his team at Underwoods bodyshop Sudbury for doing an amazing job on the repairs to my car after an accident. Martin sorted everything out for me with my insurance company regarding the claim and what repairs were required, he made the whole process as stress free as possible. He got my car in the workshop and repaired very quickly. It now looks brand new again. I would highly recommend Underwoods for all your motoring needs, new car, servicing or repairs.
