Small to Medium Area Repair Technology (see below) car body repairs entail that the body repairs are done mobile, at the convenience of your home.
Our expert technicians will be able to accurately blend the paintwork repair and to guarantee an excellent, accurate result. Our artisans have over 500 years of cumulate experience and will cross-check the colour they use against the manufacturer’s original colour code specification to guarantee that the colour matches perfectly.
The combination of our artisans’ skills, along with a trialled and tested technique for mobile car body repairs will ensure that the colour and texture of your bumper restored back to its original condition.
SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) car body repairs are a series of car body repair techniques that provide a cost-effective, quick and sustainable way to repair vehicles.
The SMART repair technique entails masking and isolating the affected (damaged) area of the panel, and blending the finished paint to match the rest of the (undamaged) panel. Instead of having to respray the entire side of a car to fix a door scratch, for instance, the repairer will simply isolate and repair the affected area. This avoids having to repair or replace the entire side of the car.
Using the same body shop quality paints and materials, infra red drying, and specifically designed spray guns, the damaged area is repaired and blended into the undamaged area.

SMART repair stands for ‘Small, Medium Area Repair Technology’. It’s the process of repairing a small area of your vehicle to make it look as good as new again, without replacing a whole panel. The SMART Repair service is made to make your life easier and to cut cost.
We can repair most dings, dents, scratches and scuffs in car panels and bumpers. Our expert technicians have years of training in body-shops and can repair most damage provided there isn’t any heavy, structural damage to the car. We are an environmentally-friendly company and will always try to repair rather than replace parts. You can take a look at the full list of car body repair services we provide here.
Our repairers need space for their van (at least 3ft on either side of the car) and access to electricity to be able to carry out the work. If you don’t have access to an electrical outlet, please let us know and we’ll arrange to send a repairer fitted with a generator (please be mindful of the fact that not all repairers carry them so this is subject to where you are).
This really depends on the extent of your damage. Bumper scuffs and light panel scratches will typically take 2 to 3 hours to fix.
During the car scratch repair process, an accurate colour match is obtained using a Spectrophotometer, matching the manufacturer’s finish. We can then replicate the colour with our specialist range of tints. So, whether you need one car wheel arch scratch removed, or multiple bumper scuffs repaired, the work can be undertaken in a relatively short amount of time, restoring your car paintwork to a high quality.
Here are the steps we take to repair scratches and scuffs:
Clean and dry the area to remove dirt and waxes that may interfere with the repair
Carefully cover neighbouring panels and details like lights, badges and moulding to protect them
Sand back the damaged area to reveal paint and primer layers – we rebuild the colour layer by layer for a high-quality finish
Prime with a grey base and cure with an infrared lamp or blower
Apply the paint in thin layers with a spray gun, heating it to dry between each application
Cure the entire area with an infrared lamp or blower
Allow to cool, then remove any paint nibs with extremely fine grain paper
Polish and buff the panel
All of our paintwork comes with a lifetime guarantee.
PDR is a type of car repair that removes minor dents where the paintwork is not damaged. It involves accessing the back of the damaged panel and using special tools to ‘massage’ out the dent. We do not carry out these types of repairs as we cannot guarantee the quality of the repair.
We don’t provide a pricing grid, however, for bumper scuffs / scrapes you are likely to pay between £130 and £180 depending on damage and location. Panel damage will typically range between £160 and £230 depending on location and severity.
