About Our Company


Established in 1971, we provide the Watford, Rickmansworth and South West Hertford areas with high-quality accident repair, car body repair and car insurance repair services. As a small, family-run business with more than 35 years in the industry, our team started out preparing rally cars. Since then, we have developed our repair and refinishing skills to include modern car damage and modern paintwork damage repair techniques.


We now work on most manufacturer makes and models including many prestige marques.


Our company specialises in car body repair work for modern vehicles using state-of-the-art equipment, such as JIG alignment and LASER wheel alignment systems, to meet the required standards of all major car manufacturers.

Autoprep Ltd Accident Repair Centre


If you’re a Watford, Rickmansworth or Hertfordshire car owner who has been unfortunately involved in an accident which wasn’t your fault, you can rely on our professional team to process a car insurance repair claim on your behalf through our selected accident management services. We manage your non-fault accident from start to finish and liaise with the third party’s insurance provider directly to settle your claim.


Subject to approval from your service provider, we’ll carry out the required car insurance repair work, which could be anything from a small car dent repair to major crash repair work. The cost of a car insurance repair will usually be covered by the third party’s policy.  You will be provided with a free courtesy vehicle, comparable to your own wherever possible, until your own vehicle is repaired and roadworthy again.
