Back at Work

We are back in full swing here at J A Ward Panel & Paint, and we have all the appropriate health and safety procedures in place for Covid-19 Level 2. If you are in need of vehicle repairs, now is a great time to book in, just give us a call.

Covid-19 Notice

In line with government requirements, J A Ward Panel & Paint will be temporarily closing as of 5:00pm Wednesday 25/03/2020. We understand that this will cause some inconvenience for our customers, and we do apologise for this. The decision to put quarantine restrictions on the country was not taken lightly by our government, but is the best way to slow the spread of this virus and to save lives.

We look forward to reopening as soon as restrictions are lifted, and hope you will contact us then for any panel & paint requirements. In the meantime stay safe and look after yourselves and each other. We wish you all the best during this difficult time.

Christmas Holiday Hours 2019

J A Ward Panel & Paint would like to thank all of our valued customers from the year. Our technicians will be taking a well-earned break from Friday 20/12/19 until Monday 06/01/20. We wish you all safe and happy holidays, and a prosperous New Year.

Congratulations Rob!

Huge congratulations to our panel beater Rob Busson who has worked hard to earn his I-Car Bronze Recognition Repairer status. It’s a massive achievement and we’re all very proud of him.


Huge congratulations to our apprentice painter who is an apprentice no more! Ashleigh has now gained her National Certificate in Automotive Body Refinishing. Well done Ash!

YOUR vehicle, YOUR choice of repairer

Sometimes our customers report being pushed by their insurance companies to use a panel shop from their ‘preferred repairer list’. We would just like to remind everyone that all of our work is fully guaranteed, and that you have the right to take your vehicle to whichever panel shop you choose. We strongly suggest that you check out the reviews from other customers and make an informed choice for yourself.
