I received my C43 back. The car has been repaired perfectly and I wish to thank the staff and Michael for the usual high standards of work. Many Thanks

Dr. E.K Wong

I have used Killen's at least six times in the last 40 years. Everything from hail and accident damage, to towing and rust repairs. Most recently with panel repairs to an old Porsche. Every time, panel repairs and colour matching were perfect. Great to have them in Armidale. (5 star rating)

Peter Brown

A huge thank you to all at Killens. My car repairs experience was made hassle-free and pleasant, thanks to your friendly, professional staff. I truly appreciated the timely communication and prompt service. I highly recommend Killens for a top quality job. Kind regards,

Louise McKinnon

Jack Arnold

I just wanted to say what an amazing job you did on the Kluger and thank you very much it looks like a brand-new car it’s nice to know that there are no bits not connected to other bits which it seems you discovered When you were looking at fixing the lights for the four-wheel-drive all wheel drive. Anyway I just wanted to say thank you very much and what a professional job you have all done and we have a clean beautiful looking car. Till next time

Fiona Simmons

Thank you, Michael and your team for recently repairing my Mercedes Sprinter Van/Motorhome back to it's pre-incident condition! Traveling gravel roads over the weekend was a pleasure as no dust appeared to enter the interior of the vehicle. When on parts of the newly completed coastal motorway the vehicle seemed to 'purr' along, without rattles. The sprinter is, as always, a pleasure to drive! Thank you all, for your courtesy and professional attention to detail. Best wishes,

Keith Fleming

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for taking care of my recent kangaroo damage, to my most loved car! Your help, driving me to and from AVIS car rental and the quick repair was truly appreciated! The girls on the front desk were amazing too! Nothing was too much trouble! Warm Regards  

Megan Marchant

To the Killen’s staff, I really appreciate your help which was so generously given yesterday. Thank you so much. I can assure you that whenever I have any say in the matter, I will certainly pass any work in the future to your company. Sincerely,

To whom it may concern, My experience with Killen’s Smash Repairs has involved my car being repaired after a minor accident and the painting of my Vintage motorcycle, I am impressed with the professionalism from start to finish. The dedication and enthusiasm with the 1947 Indian was impressive and the finished product is impressive.  

Peter Allomes

Killen’s Smash Repairs is New England’s and Armidale’s longest serving smash repairer having been established by Paul and Gwen Killen in 1970.


Killen’s Smash Repairs is a family owned business and is New England and Armidale’s longest serving smash repairer. Established over forty years ago by Paul and Gwen Killen in 1970, the business is now operated by their son, Michael Killen and overseen by Gwen. Killen’s is proud to remain a family business and has developed into the largest repairer in the Northwest/ New England area. After completing his apprenticeship at Hardmans Garage at the age of 16, Paul Killen went into business in 1970 with David Reid establishing ‘Killen and Reid Smash Repairs’ located in Ohio Street. The small business eventually gained two apprentices, one learning panel beating and the other spray painting who stayed with the company for over 20 years. In 1975 Paul and his wife Gwen decided to continue the business by themselves and purchased Killen’s current site, 246 Mann Street and renamed the business ‘Killen’s Smash Repairs’. Since then, surrounding land has been purchased as the business has expanded and in 2004 the whole shop underwent a complete renovation. Read more
