Perfect Autobody has been operating in Canterbury for over 30 years. We’re dedicated to providing the safest repairs and best customer experiences in the industry.
We invest heavily in training and equipment to maintain our status as a market-leading facility, and are a proud member of the New Zealand Collision Repair Association. In 2020 our commitment to excellence was recognised by the NZCRA when we were awarded the “Overall Best Shop” Award for New Zealand, an award we also received in 2009.
We place great value on our relationships with insurance providers and will work with you and your insurer to deliver a repair experience that exceeds your expectations.
Committed To Sustainability
At Perfect Autobody, we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. Our industry has a reputation for being dirty, dusty, and messy - and we want to change that!
We recycle wherever possible, and consider our carbon footprint across the business. Where the cost difference is negligible, we prefer to repair rather than replace.
The use of the latest water based paint technology and ‘Low Energy’ clears and primers ensures our material selection and usage matches our business ethos.
The NZCRA recognised our commitment to sustainable practices as past recipients of the “Environmental” award and finalists in the same category two years in a row. We are committed to making ongoing improvements in this area.
Our business is built on trust and relationships. We have a broad client base and long-term associations with a range of entities.
Insurance Companies and Brokers
Perfect Autobody is a recommended repairer for all major insurance companies including AA Insurance, AMP, IAG (Gold Repairer), State, Lumley, Lantern, NZI, Monument, Toyota Insurance, National Auto Club, and Zurich.
These insurers trust us to look after their customers, and we take that responsibility seriously; it’s part of why we’re so committed to high-quality results and excellent customer service.
Lease Companies and Fleet Owners
As a recommended repairer for Custom Fleet, we service company vehicle fleets of all shapes and sizes. We recognise that downtime costs money, so we provide a flexible service and a quick turnaround.
We welcome enquiries from customers who don’t wish to make an insurance claim or are simply looking to maintain the standard of their car. Every repair is different, and we’ll do our best to work to your budget.
Perfect Autobody has a vast array of supply partners, including material and consumable suppliers, dismantlers and recycled parts suppliers, new vehicle franchises, equipment and machinery suppliers, and our paint supplier.
Our partnership with Axalta Coating Systems, one of the world’s largest paint suppliers to the repair industry, has developed into an important strategic alliance. Specialist management training and industry benchmarking have been extremely beneficial to our business, and have directly contributed to the levels of excellence we have attained.
Technical training and ongoing staff development are vital to the future of our business. Our apprenticeship and post-trade training programmes - which involve MITO, local polytechnics and I-CAR New Zealand - ensure that our staff are fully equipped to manage the latest technology.
As a proud member of the NZ Collision Repair Association, we’re up to date with all industry-related matters, best practices, and legislative requirements.
