Maintaining this expertise for many years with an ongoing investment in tools, technology, equipment and training means that no matter what vehicle you drive you’ll receive outstanding service.

As a family run company, we know how important professionalism, respect and friendliness are to both our customers and staff and we live by the philosophy of treating every vehicle as if it was our own.

Local Community

We have been part of the Caversham Community for nearly 40 years and have been integrated into Abingdon since 2016. In both of the communities where we trade, we believe it is important to support local causes and to always be good neighbours.

Over the years we have lent our support to many events and causes, from supporting youth football, drama groups and schools to funding apprenticeships; we know the value of giving back to our communities.

Football Team Sponsorship

Outdoor exercise is important for the mental and physical health of young people, but sadly many youth teams find the cost of kit to be prohibitive. We’ve therefore helped a number of local clubs over the last few years.

“Your generous support meant we were able to provide the girls with new football kits, which they really love, including a set of away shirts. The girls are so proud of their shirts, which have made them look like a real team. Thank you Caversham Coachworks, it wouldn’t have been possible without you.”

James Wilson, Coach, Caversham AFC Swans U11s.

Choose Caversham

As our home for many years, we are proud to part of the Choose Caversham initiative, working with and supporting independent business, encouraging people to shop local and to make the most of the incredible facilities on their doorstep.

Supporting Local School Fayres

We support three of our local schools, as well as Caversham Park Theatre, with donations for raffle prizes at their regular Summer and Christmas Fayre’s as well as advertising in their programmes.


The vehicle industry has traditionally been wasteful and responsible for harmful products entering the environment. However, at Caversham Coachworks in both our Reading and Abingdon locations we now take multiple steps to ensure that we are as green as possible.

Proactive measures include recycling of metals, plastics, lacquers and oils, using environmentally friendly waterborne paints and coatings, and investment in the latest air-conditioning system using the revolutionary R1234yf gas.

What Our Customers Say About Us…

I have to extend my gratitude to Caversham Coachworks for their fantastic service.

Not only have Caversham Coachworks been able to fix my car at short notice, work to my budget AND provide me with a replacement vehicle, they did it swiftly and with, most importantly for me, excellent customer service. From Mandy at reception to all the engineers, my experiences at Caversham Coachworks have been superb and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is having car troubles.

Amanda Aldred The Big Yellow Self Storage Company

They did the bodywork (paintwork) and a few repairs on my Audi Q5. Honestly, they were so friendly and professional. My car came out looking brand new. If I could add the before and after pics I would. I highly recommend and know where I will be going when I have any car issues. Thank you, team.

Harlie Gaming Audi Q5

I was grateful that you were accommodating when I may have needed to change the booking. I was also very appreciative that the car was done when you said it would be. Thank you.

Susan Thomas Audi A3

Fab! Collected car and returned it, all work carried out to a high standard. They even valeted my car before returning it

Bethany Rozzier VW Polo

Excellent customer service. Acceptable alternative vehicle. Nice paintwork and finishing. Got my car before the scheduled date

Akhtar Ali Seat Arona

From initial contact with Caversham Coachworks to arrange collection of the car and picking up after the repairs had been carried out, I was kept up to date with the progress of repairs. The repair works were carried out to a high standard, and the car handed back valeted, which was an added bonus

Mark Chenery VW T-ROC

My experience with Caversham Coachworks (Reading) was absolutely first-rate from start to finish. I had a minor accident in the process of moving house, so was already a bit stressed from that. Caversham Coachworks made the whole process easy; they were excellent with their communication, keeping me informed at all stages and letting me know how the work was going – in fact they were so good I asked for some additional work to be done at the same time. The work on the vehicle itself was outstanding – it had rather a nasty scrape along the whole side and looking at it now you can’t tell at all. If I needed further bodywork for my Audi, I wouldn’t hesitate to take it back here.

Matthew Taylor Audi A6

Very pleasant and straightforward to deal with. No hassle booking process. Excellent communications throughout. Really impressed overall.
