When your vehicle is damaged, you want it fixed.

It really is that simple.

You’ve had a bash or a crash, or your vehicle (or fleet of vehicles) needs professional paint and panel repair. You probably don’t even care how it gets done, just so long as you’re not inconvenienced in the process.

Without even thinking about it you already know what the process should look like: professional workmanship, quality products, cost effective, loan vehicle, fast completion. Wouldn’t you hope that every autobody repairer in Christchurch could offer you that?

We are Harewood Panel and Paint, and we fix damaged vehicles.

How did we become a specialist autobody repairer?
It’s a good story…

When Jason Stevenson was a boy, his father was into motor racing. Dad and son would spend hours getting their race car ready for competition.

Soon enough, Jason was competing in a Mini Cooper, and working as an apprentice panelbeater. To pay for his motorsport hobby he fixed up cars after hours.

It didn’t take him long to build a reputation for quality restoration work on E-Type Jaguars. With more and more classic car owners entrusting him with their pride-and-joy, Harewood Panel and Paint was born.

The business branched into collision and insurance repairs, fleet servicing, and motorhome repairs. It moved from a farmer’s shed (with one employee) to a workshop behind a garage (with six employees) to our current purpose-designed location at 8a Sheffield Crescent, Christchurch.

We now have a friendly team of 16, one of whom has been with us since 1998! Another has received over 30 letters of gratitude from happy clients – we’re starting to think his mother is writing them. We sometimes get cake from delighted clients. We like cake.
