Car Craft is the longest established organisation of its type in the motor body repair industry in Australia

In 1987 Car Craft Panel & Paint Ltd was formed in Western Australia by a small group of body repair business proprietors with a vision to establish a network of professional businesses to lift standards in the body repair industry. The company trades as Car Craft Accident Repair Centres.

There are now Car Craft Accident Repair Centres Nationally providing consumers with quality workmanship, excellent customer service and professional business systems.


The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) is the peak body representing the interests of these employers in the retail, service and repair sectors of Queensland’s automotive industry. Sommerville Smash Repairs are current and active members.


I-CAR operates as an industry based Not for Profit organisation and has a worldwide presence including the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

While each country operates independently and serves the needs of its provincial inter-industry, the vision remains the same:

‘That every person in the collision repair industry has the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs for the ultimate benefit of the consumer.’

This remains at the core of each partner’s mission.

I have taken several of the family cars here for the past several years and without exception the experiences have been outstanding.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants
great service, honest value, and really great people.

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.
