About HJ Bosch & Sons

HJ Bosch & Sons Panel Beaters is a family owned business with a legacy dating back to 1969. Our top-quality service has established HJ Bosch & Sons Panel Beaters as a leader in the industry and we are proud to be a preferred supplier for the all major insurance companies. We aim to restore vehicles, protect our customer’s investment, and to provide them with personalised service throughout the process.

We employ the most skilled and qualified journeyman in the area and some of our key employees have been part of our team for more than 20 years. We use the latest technology and the most advance equipment available to ensure that each vehicle is repaired to its factory specification. The quality of our workmanship meets the standards required by the insurance companies and motor manufacturers, but perhaps most importantly, the expectation of our customers.

With 50 years’ experience as a premier panel beating workshop in Gauteng, we know the ins and outs of the auto repair industry.

In addition to growing our national footprint through the business format of franchising our growth strategy includes expanding our business into rural areas where there is a shortage of insurance approved panel beaters.

All our franchisees are 100 % Black owned enterprise and therefore Level 1 BEE contributors. While insurers are focused on providing volume-based deals to a small number of repairers, with the promise of cost saving, the challenge for the Motor Body Repair Sector is to find synergy between its current industry models and practices and the vision and efforts of government to drive economic transformation.
