About Us - Shepherd & Kime Christchurch

In 1966 two young panel beaters, Gary Shepherd and Errol Kime, put their talents and knowledge together to open their own Collision Repair Centre, naming it Shepherd & Kime Ltd. They quickly made a reputation for high quality Panel and Paint repairs in Christchurch.
Their Motto – The Best For Panel And Paint -  And Shepherd & Kime have never looked back.

There has been huge changes to the Panel industry over the years and their business stepped up to the challenges,  always mindful of their customers requirements.  Due to demand, the business expanded with the opening of a second branch in Antigua Street and together employing 45 staff.

In 2006 both Gary and Errol retired and the businesses new owners Gerard Kime and Dave Kennedy, offer the same commitment and services to their customers.  They believe The Key is to work alongside the customer so they know what is involved in the repair process and are kept informed of progress.  Panel and paint repairs are a service, and it’s the attention to service that makes the difference for our customers.

In 2008 a third branch, Shepherd & Kime 2008 Ltd, was opened offering all services to business and private vehicle owners in the Airport / Burnside area.
