Here are just a few of the nice things they have to say about working with Genius of the Lamp

“Well! What can I say? Off the chart…next frikkin’ level, insane attention to detail. The guys who taught me “do it right; do it once” - Over the last two decades, I’ve travelled the UK filming with, and seeking out, what can only be considered THE very best skilled craftspeople we have to offer in the automotive restoration world. There is no doubt in my mind, that GOTL are the GOAT….(greatest of all time). In this business, like in any other, you pay for what you get. If you want a cheap flakey job that will peel off / blister / not last, then find your local Trevor to do it. If you want to be better than OE factory then go with Genius of the Lamp. Your call.”

— Tim Shaw, Car SOS

“ As a car restorer, technical and restoration secretary of several Vintage car clubs, I have dealt with Genius of the Lamp from its earliest days and can honestly say I do not think there is, or could be, a higher quality lamp restoration or plating company. Every single job I have taken there has been nothing but faultless, all done in the most pleasing and friendly way. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

- Tony Smallbone, Vintage Austin President

They have always gone well above and beyond in delivering their excellent restoration and plating services no matter how big or small the job."

- Alistair Chandler, Antiques Roadshow Horologist

"The team at Genius of the Lamp are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and professional, and without doubt they are the very best in the field of lamp restoration, polishing and electroplating services. Like the team at Genius, we work to tight deadlines and extremely high standards. Genius enables us to provide our customers with exceptional award-winning restorations of historic horse drawn carriages and early motor cars."

Alastair Flanagan 

"Expert and pragmatic advice, flawless workmanship and as near perfect a result on my 100 year old headlamps as possible. I can’t thank you enough.”

Tom Westley - Car Collector 

“I have been using Genius of the Lamp for many years now - they are excellent - using modern equipment and really helping to deliver the very best quality in a timely manner.
They have helped me with a full set of lights for a 1930s car which look absolutely fabulous.
I can also recommend “Concours Plating” excellent quality - you get what you pay for - I have never been disappointed.”
