    I've used my local one, awesome.

    However, it all depends on the chaps skills where you are.

    Contact them and pop over to see some work they've done.
    If your not 100% happy, find somewhere else.

    Look in your local Yellow Pages under bodywork repairs.

    There'll be the address for you local Chipsaway place.

    Pop over and he should be working on a car. Ask the chap if you can see some of the repairs he's done.

    Any repair specialist will be proud to show off their work.
    If they refuse, ask yourself why.

    You pay so much per panel, 1 chip or 100!

    I don't know, when you go to your Chipsaway Mr. He'll know tho.

    Because they are a franchise, results vary greatly between each person. As mentioned above definately ask to see some of the guys previous work.
