A Long History on the Gold Coast



 Well established as the Gold Coast’s leading prestige motor vehicle repairer, we have operated from our purpose-built facility at Upper Coomera since 2009 but the company grew from more humble beginnings some thirty six years earlier.

Formerly known as Harvey Smash Repairs under the directorship of Heydon Harvey the company quickly earned a reputation for quality and integrity in the automotive community. At an early stage, Heydon and his team consistently delivered a level of service that ensured his name was associated with only the very best marques and motor vehicle dealerships. In the early 1990’s, he moved his business into new premises in Nerang and the company quickly became an icon for the panel and paint industry on the Gold Coast. Over the following 15 years the Gold Coast region was the fastest growing urban area in Australia and the Harvey name was recognised and respected by prestige car owners, dealers and insurers alike as the first choice for reliable and quality paint and panel service.

H Harvey Prestige has won the coveted ‘Autobody Repairer of the Year’ Award on a state level four times (2003, 2005, 2009 and 2012) and on a national level three times (2003, 2005, 2009).

A Partnership Unrivalled

In 2011 Heydon Harvey retired from the business and it was purchased by Colin Cowie and Mark Wells. The partnership in itself is built on the individual reputations and credibility of both owners.

With interests in other highly successful and long-established major panel shops, Mark Wells brings a level of experience and management excellence rarely found in the auto body repair trade. Colin Cowie’s lengthy association with many of the major auto franchisees in the region is well respected and known, both in the industry and in the community at large.

Together they are committed to ensuring they continue to provide the highest quality vehicle repairs complimented by an unrivalled customer service.
