A family team with over a dozen experienced engineers and mechanics have been setting the standards in adding, modifying and completely face-lifting the look of cars for over 30 years.

From light automobile conversions to installing full-blown sensational body styling kits to cars, all of which is insurance approved, the team at JR Autobodies knows how to enhance curb appeal for any motor.

The team run a tight workshop, which boasts over 11,000sqft of workspace. Armed with the latest technology and customising gear, the garage has worked on everything from write-offs to Ferraris and Lambos that have come through the doors.

Over the last three decades, the Leeds company has been providing MOTs and bodywork repairs for drivers across the region and has fast become one of the country’s most renowned independent garages.

It was in 1982 that brothers, Ajmare Riyat and Jasmer Riyat, first set up the business with their father after realising a need to provide quality MOT services in Leeds.

Starting life in humble beginnings, the business began operating out of a ‘shack-like’ building, just big enough to fit one car – a complete contrast of operations now.

Today, the business is booming, with JR Autobodies growing into Yorkshire’s largest independent body shop and MOT Centre, undertaking insurance approved repairs to custom and bespoke styling to meet their customer’s desires.

Their onsite MOT point has been classed as green light, a high standard mostly only achieved by leading main dealer workshops.

Meanwhile, a team of engineers and mechanics can provide any bodywork refinish job needed, with the highest quality re-sprays and vehicle jigging service available at the most competitive prices.

Whether it’s refinishing your paintwork back to the new factory finish or making your car stand out from the crowd, with limitless custom designs and colours it’s possible at JR Autobodies.

All work is guaranteed to bring your car back to the original factory finish- which very few can achieve.

For all insurance work booked in, a free courtesy car is also provided by the garage when required, to ensure minimum disruption to their customer’s daily routine. Likewise, if an accident is not the driver’s fault, a like-for-like vehicle is also provided for the duration of the repair.

Big alloys, full resprays, and bringing old models back to life is a passion of JR Autobodies. Make them your first choice when it comes to looking after your motor.
