We invest in the latest training, equipment, and technology available to the industry, so your car is repaired to the highest standard.

The company name Sommerville Smash Repairs was purchased from a small repairer in Southport, back in 1994. From these humble beginnings with just two staff, they slowly outgrew their workshop over time and relocated to 12 O’Shea Drive Nerang in 1999. Chris continued with his passion for repairing cars, focusing on the Industries challenges whilst managing quality, cycle times and cost-effective repairs. In 2015, Chris seen an opportunity to expand again, taking ownership of the adjoining factories at 14 O’Shea Drive in Nerang.

The business was continuing to evolve, as to its employees so it was inevitable that the need to look at further acquisitions would come sooner than anticipated. In 2021 the expansion continued with taking possession of 16 O’Shea Drive giving Chris & Shari Agnew one of the largest privately owned footprints in the country, employing over 35 personnel.

We are committed to achieving best practises and outstanding results by providing good leadership, personal development, and training to our team. Inspiring our team to achieve the highest standard of work with a culture of respect, trust and support for one another. Giving back to the community by nurturing and aspiring the youth into our industry of good work ethics, that’s our vision & aspiration.

I had a P plater reverse his Hilux into the back of my car when I was parked at a servo. & my insurance company use Sommerville & I can honestly say. They handled everything smoothly. The ladies on the desk were so kind & polite. Very informative, they organised my hire car from hertz. Such a pleasure to deal with. They had my car for two days & called me when it was ready to collect. I now have a nice new bumper & tail lights. & I am so very great full that they washed & vacuumed my car, that was totally unexpected & greatly appreciated.
