We started as a small garage near Dunstable in Bedfordshire. In the beginning, we offered only classic car maintenance and servicing. We were driven by our founder’s passion for classic cars and all things mechanical who was unimpressed with the finish of the classic car restorations brought to us for mechanical repair. He believed we could do better, and so the current full classic car restoration services business AV Classics was born.
Over time we have expanded to having our own classic car body shop, engine rebuilding facilities, paint shop, classic car trim and electrical work. This allows us to have complete control over quality, time and costs whilst delivering the best possible finish and service. It also allows us to offer a range of services that can be selected individually or combined to deliver full restorations. In July 2017, we moved to larger premises in Bedfordshire, this gave us the opportunity to create our own space, invest in infrastructure and to increase capacity and output.
Today a significant proportion of our business is brought to us by customers who return with a second, third and even a fourth car! Our reputation is paramount, we strive to be the best, we expect to be judged against the very best in the business and are confident that we can compete with them. But we are not arrogant – we appreciate the testimonials of all of our clients who help us feel we are on target to fulfill our ambition of becoming one of the leading classic car restoration shops in the UK.
As a small business, we pride ourselves on our family feel and on being a responsible company that strives to respect and balance commercial demands whilst providing an environment for our staff that both challenges and rewards them. We are always happy to invite customers to visit us and get to know our team – ultimately, they are ones that will make your ideas and automotive desires a reality.
