Chip repair - Solihull/ West Midlands area

Hi, can anyone in the Solihull/West Midlands area recommend a paint repair shop? 
I have a few of small stone chips, one on the  rear bumper and a couple on the front bumper of my sapphire blue metallic 991.2. 'Chips Away' have declined to attempt the job, the paint is ceramic coated.

Hi Maser
I think you're going to struggle with this due to the car having a ceramic coating. I guess the coating was applied on top of the chips? (Or maybe it wasn't). Either way the ceramic coating would probably need removing first via sanding then the chips repaired, then have another ceramic coating. You're probably best chatting to a professional detailer about your options, give John at Velocity Car Detailing ( a call and ask for his thoughts.
