I was very happy with the service especially that of Greg Zeelie, his willingness to help and after sales service was really good.


In November last year I was looking at buying a new Vehicle, when I had a rather silly accident trying to drive into my Garage with a bike still on the Roof Carrier. The bike was pushed out the carrier and came down on the roof of my car leaving a couple of serious dents on roof and door. This was not the best thing to happen while in the process of looking at new cars and trying to trade your car in. I contacted Brent Strydom at C & G Bodyworks, where I have had excellent service in the past, and explained my dilemma. Without blinking an eye Brent had me bring my car in straight away for a quote and assessment. They dealt directly with my Insurance and the assessor and got everything finalised and vehicle booked in in double quick time. Brent also organised his own vehicle as a loan vehicle as having a 3 month old baby meant I could not be without a vehicle. The C & G team fixed my Vehicle in record time and knowing I was in negotiations for a new car went the extra mile by touching up some other road rash and minor damage followed by a professional buff. My car looked spectacular, like the day I bought it again, never the less I ended up keeping my Vehicle and am still enjoying its brand new look. Many thanks to Brent and team at C & G Bodyworks for the prompt efficient manner in which they handled my case and the excellent work they did on my vehicle. They really went the extra mile and I would not hesitate to recommend them to family and friends!

I like to take this opportunity to thank C & G Bodyworks for the excellent workmanship that was carried out in repairing the car park damage done to my car. Further the computerized paint matching is just as impressive, one cannot see the car has had body repairs done.

East London companies are not well known for great service, but the service I received from C & G Bodywork was five star! When I dropped my car off the staff was friendly and helpful and I felt that it was in good hands. My car came back looking better than when I bought it! It had been repaired perfectly, cleaned and polished on the outside and inside and it was even delivered to my house when they were done. The owner (Brent Strydom) phoned me that afternoon to tell me exactly what they had done and to check that I was happy with everything. They went above and beyond and I would happily go back for future repairs. I would recommend this company to all of my family and friends.

From the date I brought in my car in for a quotation, up to the completion of my repairs I can attest without any hesitation that all the CG staff excelled in terms of the services that were provided to me. This was further demonstrated when I collected my car and unfortunately I had a hick up with my EFT system. CG allowed me to take my vehicle and make the payment the following day without any hassles. I appreciated this gesture as I had an extremely bad experience once at a competitor and the level of professionalisms displayed this day far exceeded my expectation. The quality of their workmanship and the way my car looked at collection date also far exceed by expectations. I need to commend the management and staff of this effort and urge them to keep up the good work!!!

I would to take this opportunity to Thank one of your staff member by the name of Ishmail , It was the first time I came to C & G body works but the service I received was EXCELLENT, He treated me with integrity by being respectful, by being professional at all times, by being disciplined, by being passionate and committed to what he is doing. He is a good asset in your company and also the good reputation of your company, because of the service I received from him I will recommend your company to my friends and colleagues.

I have just taken delivery of my repaired vehicle, and I’m so pleased with it, that I want to congratulate you and all those involved, including the very good natured ladies who cheerfully and politely have answered my telephone calls from time to time.

I am particularly appreciative of the commitment and effort that Andrew, Ismael, Leroy and their colleagues made, to source many of the parts from the non-agent suppliers, thereby keeping the cost down to an acceptable figure. This swayed the insurance company to repair the vehicle instead of writing it off. Looking carefully at the vehicle today, it is obvious to me, that the mind-set and philosophy of all at C & G is “let’s go the extra mile”. This of course means that I’ll have no hesitation in recommending C & G to anyone who requires a premium repair job. From a very grateful octogenarian, who now still has his own vehicle.

Firstly I really want to extend my appreciation to you and Ismael for the time and effort spent on my vehicle. I have visited other body shops but I have never experienced such professionalism and hospitality. You have been of great assistance in identifying defects that were not easily noticeable, Please keep up the good service.
