About Kynaston Auto Bodies

The Kynaston’s group started from small beginnings in 1971 when Paul Kynaston (managing director) set up what was then known as Kynaston’s Coachworks in a single bay garage on the Quay in Exeter.  The main bulk of work was body work carrying out accident repairs and resprays. He later moved to King Edward Street for 21 years, the company then relocated to Marsh Barton in 1988 where they took on their current name of Kynaston Autobodies.

By 2009 the reputation for fantastic customer care and service had grown and we opened Kynaston Auto Services.  A dedicated mechanical repair site able to cope with the volume and variety of modern cars.  We very quickly made use of our new larger site gaining local contracts with large national companies like UPS.  Our can do attitude towards our work means we can cater to the individual customers family car or national fleet operators commercial vans.

In 2013 as part of the Repair centre’s  refurbishment, Kynaston Autobodies  relocated to a 28,000 sq. ft. centre to accommodate their growing business demands, allowing their previous site to become specialised in commercial body repairs.

Paul Kynaston has been involved in both modern and historic rallying since 1970 and has been successful in winning many championships in his various rally cars over the years. In addition to his passion of rallying, restoring and driving his private collection of classic cars, Paul has most recently embarked on other projects to restore classic motorbikes and tractors.  Paul remains very hands on with the business and can regularly be found in his overalls on the shop floor.

Took my car here for an mot. Friendly staff and brilliant service.

My beloved T5 was nurtured back on the road by all at Kynaston Auto Services and I couldn’t be happier. It was a really big and extensive job but the professional expertise of the staff got her back on the road.

Really pleased with this garage, reasonable cost, excellent service. Have already recommended.

Very happy with the work that took place and the feedback from the staff. Excellent communication.

Very pleased to have found Kynaston though the RAC. I have been looking for a local garage to use for my car and pleased to have found such a good garage with friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff at a reasonable price. I would recommend this garage and the RAC Garage Compare website.
