About Us

Yaxley Coachworks has built up a reputation of being synonymous with high quality repairs and painting and a prompt turnaround to customers’ expectations.

The business was originally set up some 25 years ago and grew to be one of the country’s most renowned CV body-shops, catering to a diverse and distinct customer base.

The current Directors, Graham Smith and Andrew Carver, purchased Yaxley Coachworks in late 2012 with a view to continue to develop and grow the business, coping with today’s dynamic and continually changing business sector.

The name arises from its early days location in Yaxley, Peterborough which was quickly outgrown and in 1995 a new impressive site was constructed right in the heart of Peterborough Eastern Industry.

This site still serves as the cornerstone CV repair agent to many of the original customers although some have changed names due to amalgamations and takeovers.

The workshops are based on a 4 acre hard standing site capable of storing over 60 semi-trailers with a 9 bay bodyshop and 6 bay paint preparation shop. There are 2 modern EPA compliant 50ft paint ovens that are maintained and serviced by the manufacturers to enable us to provide you with a paint finish second to none.

Yaxley Coachworks prides itself with the finish of the paintwork and if a Formula 1 team have been satisfied over the years then you can be assured that quality is of paramount importance.

There are many specialist services we are able to offer such as:

  • shot blasting – in our purpose built shot blasting bay,
  • chassis and cab straightening – utilising our integrated JOSAM jig,
  • complete GRP / refrigerated trailer side-wall / roof replacements etc.

By continuing to employ seasoned staff that attend the latest training programs we are able to boast over 280 years of experience. This coupled with our in-house apprentice development program will allow us to continue to share this knowledge with the upcoming youngsters of today.

We pride ourselves with continuity of personnel where you, as the customer, can often contact us and speak to the same person each time. Most often customers will not only have direct line of contact with the management team but also to Andrew and Graham, the Directors.
