At Charles Ware's we have been restoring and maintaining classic cars for over 45 years.

How to get started restoring your classic car with us.

Give us a call on 0117 3003 754 to arrange an appointment for us to carry out a structural inspection. 

We offer:

Verbal estimate; we can roughly tell you what essential repairs will be needed for your car. We will road test your vehicle and give a sound overview of its condition and inspect the chassis.

Detailed written estimate; this costs £125 +vat and is a detailed report covering all aspects of your car.  This estimate will be divided into two sections; Essential repairs (Chassis, body, and mechanical) and Desirable repairs (Upgrades, trim, paintwork). When preparing your final report we will take the following into consideration,

  • The existing condition of your vehicle
  • Your expectations
  • Your budget
  • Your pattern of use

We will then put together a package that will suit you and your budget!


If you are unable to visit us,

We have provided a detailed QUESTIONNAIRE with instructions on how to fill it in.

You can email it to us at along with photos of your vehicle.

alternatively, you can post it to us and we will reply within 7-10 working days of receipt and discuss its contents over the telephone.  Any photos and other info is always useful.
