Our priority is to maximise customer satisfaction through service excellence, efficiency and precision.

Competitive advantage is one of the aspects that provide TAVA with a leading edge amongst its competitors, as the company is equipped with measures based primarily on customer- orientation. This simply means that we believe that the customer is 'king' regardless the situation. A greater focus is placed on the customer in all aspects of the way in which we do business, this being in our philosophy, goals, vision, customer support and marketing strategies. This therefore places TAVA Panelbeaters on a superior platform regarding the 'know-how' of this industry, the experience the employees possess, strategies put in place to achieve optimal success and the exceptional service which is guaranteed.
Carlos Tavares commenced this initiative in April 1996; he obtained a qualification in panel beating and spray painting in 1985. He gained a vast amount of experience in this industry, as he previously owned Franco Auto body and this gave him the self-assurance, buoyancy and determination to open TAVA Panelbeaters. Co-owner of TAVA Panelbeaters, Tony Tavares, joined Carlos in partnership in 2000. Through his array of experience gained, he is now a confident, poised and assertive director of the company. TAVA Panelbeaters has since then flourished and proposed into a high end and up market panel and autobody shop. In 2002 the workshop was refurbished, providing an original ambience to the work environment. This was also done to make provision for the up-surge in market demand for services offered. This soon promoted TAVA's culture; to set a standard of excellence for its clients and to instil an excelling approach, in its' employee's frame of mind.
