Welcome to MOTOR LAB









Motor Lab




Welcome to the MOTOR LAB Group of Auto Body Repair facilities. We are the home of automotive excellence in Johannesburg, with branches around the city, equipped and authorised to work on all makes and models. MOTOR LAB is trusted by thousands of motorists to give their vehicles the professional touch.

Passion is built into everything we do. We take pride in adhering to manufacturer-level standards of workmanship that is world class. Employing the same care and precision and many of the same technologies utilised by vehicle manufacturers themselves. Technical excellence and unwavering attention to detail is engineered into every aspect of our operation.

Whether you drive a premium luxury motor model, or a fleet of hard-working commercial vehicles, MOTOR LAB is equipped and authorised to return all vehicles to pristine, safe and roadworthy condition. Restoring your confidence and pride in your vehicle at the same time.



MOTOR LAB is a proud member of the RMI (Retail Motor Industry) and subscribes to the AA(Automobile Association). All our facilities are monitored and audited on a regular basis by manufacturers to ensure strict quality and safety standards at all times.

MOTOR LAB utilises only the finest materials to complete every repair. We fit only genuine replacement parts or insurance-industry-approved alternative components where appropriate. All replacement parts carry the correct manufacturer warranties and all workmanship carries a one-year warranty.

Through established relationships with excellent partners such as leading paint suppliers, we are able to deliver a product that is consistent and quality assured. Which is why we offer a lifetime guarantee on all paintwork.

In addition, waterborne paint products are utilised in order to reduce the impact on the environment. Reducing the volatile organic compounds that are released into the environment and helping to reduce the environmental footprint of our workshop.



At MOTOR LAB the quality of our workmanship reflects our passion for our craft. We’re car people. Each repair that rolls off the workshop floor bears the hallmarks of a team that cares about the little things.

The automotive world moves fast. New technologies and innovations are introduced every day. Keeping up with this relentless progress is part of the challenge for MOTOR LAB team. It takes experience and technical knowhow to understand and work with complex body structures comprised of different materials, from steel to aluminium. In addition, networked car electronics that control active and passive safety systems require not only knowledge of the correct procedures for repair but also the proper workshop equipment.

That’s why we invest heavily in the ongoing training of our technicians and in the latest in technology that allows us to perform high precision repairs. Subscribing to technical information on all models, and participating in regular technical training sessions is all in a day’s work for us. And every member of our team must adhere to our exacting standards of competency and efficiency.

That’s why you can rest assured that when your vehicle is with us, it’s in the right hands.



In every MOTOR LAB branch and in every department, MOTOR LAB strives to offer a service that puts the needs of the individual first. We understand that South Africa has a strong car culture and we depend on our vehicles to give us freedom, to be an extension of ourselves, to be a source of pride and to ensure we can work and thrive. That’s why the importance of restoring vehicle safety, reliability and performance can never be understated. Which is why we pinpoint safety, quality and consistency as non-negotiable in every vehicle repair.


First, a team of expert assessors goes over your vehicle with a trained eye. Looking with microscopic detail at both cosmetic damage and assessing structural components for damage. This is the critical first step that ensures the vehicle is returned to the road in a safe condition and performs to the expectations of the manufacturer. It is also the stage that we assess the most efficient and cost-effective repair, ensuring correct manufacturer-approved replacement parts are available.

As your vehicle progresses through each area of the workshop our stringent quality controls are maintained by a dedicated team of experts. The latest information technology systems monitor and log every task as it is completed. The attention to detail of our trained people ensure safety and integrity of the vehicle is maintained. They are also on hand to keep customers updated and informed about the status of the vehicle on its journey to full restoration.
