About us

Over 35 years ago, in 1984, Peter Hilton started the body repair business from his parents’ double garage which later became The Hilton Group as you know it today. 

The driving force behind the business has always been to provide a service that is second to none and it’s our passion for quality and excellence which has allowed us to become the largest manufacturer-approved repairer in the UK, approved by over 20 of the country’s most prestigious automotive brands. 

It’s taken years of hard work to build our reputation from the ground up and we constantly strive to become better, investing in the future to ensure we can grow in line with our plans – to welcome both new customers as well as those customers who return year after year.

A big thank you to Kyle and the team at Hilton for all their efforts this week. I popped in Monday late afternoon needing a scratch repaired by Friday. They managed to get my car in Wednesday evening (offering me a loan car) and had my car back to me by 2pm Friday. The work completed is fantastic it looks like new again. The team were very professional and accommodating! An easy process from start to finish. Thanks Hilton!!
The whole experience was good. The initial assessment of the damage was done quickly, and the car was repaired within 2 weeks to a very high standard. Joe kept me in touch with progress and made everything very easy. I would definitely recommend this company. Thank you!
Had my car reversed into so needed new door and rear panel, Dougie at Hilton Coachworks managed to arrange everything for me including the collection and delivery of my car so was completely stress-free. Works are amazing and car looks good as new.
