Our Approvals


Approvals and accreditations are at the heart of everything we do here at Aylesbury Panelcraft.

We undertake work for many insurers, motor dealers, fleet companies, businesses and members of the public. In order to ensure we can carry out this varied work on many different makes of vehicle, we have to ensure we have the skills, the processes and the methods in place to get the job done.

Our approvals mean we maintain, we improve and we develop our standards as we strive for the highest possible quality of workmanship and service.
