Paintless Dent Removal
We can quickly remove small dents and door marks on your vehicle’s body, often without the need to fill and paint. Dents can reduce the value of a car and can be a cosmetic concern, so work with us to eradicate them and restore the appearance of your vehicle. We have all the necessary equipment to complete the work on site under our highly-skilled team.
There’s often no need to replace a windscreen when it’s chipped or has experienced minor damage. We use a resin that’s been specifically created to fix window chips – it bonds to the glass to reinforce it and restore it to its original strength. Please contact us as soon as possible about chips, bullseyes and star breaks. Larger cracks can appear rapidly, meaning a new windscreen might be needed.
Alloy wheel refurbishment
Everyday driving can be hard on alloy wheels, with potholes on roads and kerb collisions causing damage. This can lead to uneven wear and prove dangerous when driving – plus it’s unsightly, spoiling the look of your alloys. Wheels are also prone to discolouration and corrosion over time. Where it is safe to do so, we can repair damage and restore the appearance of your alloys to make them look as good as new, so there’s no need to replace your wheels.
Chip and scuff repair
We can repair chips and scuffs to paintwork, whether they’re small surface scratches or deeper paint scratches. We have all the latest equipment and low-bake paint ovens on site, allowing us to carry out work ourselves under our own staff, who hold senior automotive technician (ATA) accreditations. We’ll use advanced techniques to repair everyday chips and make your vehicle look its best once again.
Car interiors are also subject to wear and tear, which can begin to age the vehicle and detract from the driving experience, reducing the value if you want to sell. We can repair damage such as cigarette burns, tears in the leather, and damage to plastics, as well as improving signs of general wear and tear. Our highly-qualified technicians make vehicle interiors as good as new again.
Cosmetic paint work
SMART services for paintwork involve localised processes that require minimal trim removal. We can restore small areas of damage by painting over them in situ, before blending the new paint and lacquer with the existing paintwork. Our skilled technicians will be able to carry out this service while you wait, restoring your vehicle’s paintwork back to its original condition.
