What a good guy Glenn is. Also his team are great. My insurance company wanted to write my car off as the quote with their recommended repairer was too high. I really wanted to keep it. Glenn worked with me to bring the price down to a level the insurance company agreed on for repairs (their quote was WAY over the top) Glenn really looked after me and ensured I knew how things were going along the way. I saved a ton of money and felt like I mattered while dealing with GM Smash Repairs. My car looks fantastic, the colour match was great and I couldnt be happier, highly recommend Glenn and his team.

Whether it's insurance or private repairs, Glenn and Co must be one of the finest there is. Not only did he give a great quote for both the insurance and private repairs on my car, and provide a loan car for the entire period, but also he and his guys did a beautiful job on my smashed up Mazda within the time frame quoted. It's just like new again! I have nothing but the highest praise for the professionalism, integrity and fine workmanship of Glenn and his repairers, and do not hesitate to thoroughly recommend him. Extremely happy. Cheers mate!

Collected my car from GM Smash Repairs this morning after having some decent rear end damage repaired through insurance. I chose not to use the insurer’s recommended repairer and went with GM instead based on their reviews. I wasn’t disappointed. Glenn was quick to reply to my online query about booking an assessment. He made the whole process so easy. I was provided with a courtesy car and the car was ready in the timeframe given. The staff are lovely and the workmanship is second to none - my car looks amazing! I can’t recommend this business enough and should we ever need repairs done again, I know where we’ll be going!Cheers, Jodie

Glenn has repaired my car twice. Both times he did an excellent job. My car was always ready for collection at the agreed time and was clean and shiny. Both times I was provided with a courtesy car which was so convenience. Any concerns I have with my car he always has the time to talk and offer advice. Always friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this smash repair shop to anyone who wants a good job done at a fair price.

Glenn runs a great business. Had severe damage on the back of my car from it being reversed into a pole. Brackets were damaged and everything was unaligned. Had received quotes for upwards of $5000!! Which was as much as the car is worth. Found Glenn and so glad that I did, the job was done perfect, like new and for less than half of other quotes! Glenn even had a loan car available for me to use for less than 2 weeks and him and his team worked hard to get the job done before Easter holidays! Unfortunately a few weeks after that, my car was hit from behind 😤 and now needs to be fixed again, already received a great quote and it won’t take Glenn and his awesome team long, to have my car on the road, looking like new... again! Thanks GM 😊

Glenn gives great service, he even offered a free replacement vehicle. Upon pick up, I asked him for a quote on our other vehicle, which had some scuffs on the side panel and the roof. He had a look at it and then fixed it very carefully with some paint thinner. All for free and on the spot. I then asked him about headlight bulb which all my mates had found impossilble to change. Without any smart remarks, he popped out the old one, found a new one lying around the workshop and replaced it all for just $10, (these bulbs cost over $30 at Super Cheap).As far as the smash repairs on the other vehicle, I was very happy with the quality of the work. Highly recommended and will return if I ever need to.

Can I Choose My Own Panel Beater With My Insurance?

CAN I CHOOSE MY OWN PANEL BEATER WITH MY INSURANCE? Insurer Preferred or Choice of Repairer? It’s in our nature as human beings to always want to do the right thing. This is why when we end up getting into trouble with our automobiles whether an accident or a pranged car, we make it a

No matter how we take care of our vehicles, incidents seem inevitable. Whether it’s a road collision or an object as inconspicuous as a tree branch falling on your windshield, cars can get damaged in one form or another. This is why it’s important to know how to keep calm and collected in the heat of the moment, and know the exact steps to get the professional car repair services that you need.

When getting your car fixed, it’s important to know that where you get your car repair services is just as important as the type of repair that needs to be done. Choose professionals who have the skills, license, and equipment to restore your vehicle to its best state.

Each type of car repair or repaint work needs competent professional skills to be done properly. And more often than not, each car model demands a specially crafted series of procedures to be effectively fixed. The panel beaters you choose must, therefore, be able to pinpoint what type of repairs need to be done on your car, and know exactly how to do them.


Road collisions can easily turn into an ugly mess. Vehicle damage can range from a slight bump on your fenders to massive engine damage that requires a professional fix. In the case of car collisions, prioritize your physical health and give careful consideration as to who you turn to for car fixes.

If you’re living in Brisbane, there are many smash repair shops that offer high-quality car repair services. But among these shops, make sure to choose panel beaters who have the proper license and a long-standing reputation of providing exceptional work.

At GM Smash Repairs we have a team of qualified panel beaters who specialise in smash repair services for all types of vehicles. We can work on your vehicle and restore it to its factory state.

Whether your car needs expert panel beating, chassis repairs, or wheel repairs we guarantee to give it the professional care it needs to restore its former glory.


A well-painted car is one that looks brand new and well-maintained. Whether you need total repainting to give your car a fresh new look, or partial painting to repair areas that need paint reinforcement, we can give it to you.

We offer to touch up jobs, partial and total respraying, and custom paint job to cover all your car spray painting needs. We use 2 Pac automotive paint that is expertly utilised to ensure a good amount of coat and perfect finish.

We also have two full downdraft baking ovens in our workshop to ensure that whatever the weather, your car paint will come out looking brand new. If you’re looking for a highly personalised look for your car, you can get custom spray painting from us. This way, you can guarantee that your vehicle will look unique and stand out on the road.


At GM Smash Repairs, we also offer high-quality plastic welding services that guarantee that any cracks or damages on the surface of your car are properly fixed. We have high-quality plastic products that are maneuvered by the expert hands of the specialists in our team.

We use hot air tools and thermoplastic welding rods to ensure that the plastic is smoothly incorporated in your car’s surface. Whether you’re looking to fix your bumper or panels, our team will ensure that your car comes out in the same physical and internal state as it was when it was released from the factory.

Our team is made up of experts in panel beating who carries years of experience in car spray painting and repair. We can tend to damages of various degrees, whether it’s a small dent or a major post-collision that demands professional fixing.

Apart from that, we also offer insurance panel beating repairs for car collisions and other incidents. Simply ask your insurance company the requirements needed for you to get the pre-requisites for you to get a claim. We’ll make sure to give your car professional care to get you back on the road.

Apart from our smash repairs, spray painting, and plastic welding, we also cater to smaller car repairs. Our team is made up of experts in welding and metalwork but can also carry out basic jobs such as changing oil or re-torquing the tires of your vehicle. We can also do inspections and run diagnostic services should these services be needed.
