Our Services

Mobile repair service at your home or office

We offer an individual quote for your repair and then book a convenient time to come to your chosen location, be that at work, home or site of your choice to carry out the works chosen.

By fitting in with your routine or repairing the car while you are working, there is no need for a courtesy car and the repair is carried out within the same day to minimise disruption.

Our repairs are carried out to a high standard using the very best equipment and materials to match the factory finish and return your vehicle to showroom condition.

For further details or the repairs available and the process involved, please see repairs.

Emergency repair service

We are unique in our area in offering an "emergency repair service" and can work out of hours to repair the damage urgently to prevent the embarrassment, strife or financial penalty caused if it got noticed by the wrong person.

Examples of where this service is relevant:

  • Damaging a partner’s or family member's car and not wanting them to know
  • Returning a hire car with damage and having to pay a large penalty
  • Damage caused to a sold car due to be handed over to the garage or new buyer shortly
  • Damage to wedding, funeral or chauffeur driven vehicles
  • Damage to a company vehicle which would lead to problems at work

One example is a car with bumper repaired between 6pm and midnight before leaving on holiday at 4am the next morning. What started as a crisis, was sorted and did not spoil a long-awaited holiday!

Budget repair service

Many customers simply want to get the damage less noticeable and weatherproofed to prevent it getting worse, rather than having a full repair carried out.

Popular with owners of older, lower value cars, pensioners or those on a tight budget, the budget repair service is offered as a cost-effective solution to minor damage and offers a good fix which is a far superior alternative to a DIY repair, prevents further damage or corrosion and costs less than a full paint shop repair.

Even when a seemingly large area of damage looks awful, by cleaning the area, securing loose trim and then polishing out any scratches, sometimes only a minor scuff or break in the paint remains. This can then be accurately colour matched and touched in by hand as a cheaper alternative to a job involving full preparation, priming, colouring and lacquering. This type of repair makes a big improvement to the overall appearance of the vehicle but may be noticeable upon inspection as opposed to a full repair which is identical to the original finish.

By carrying out this repair, the appearance can by greatly improved and further deterioration prevented, at a price closer to DIY repair than bodyshop rates.

We will happily discuss the options and advise what results can be achieved by this type of repair.

End of Lease / Retail preparation

An overall refreshing of the vehicle is popular with clients with a well used car either wanting to return it to showroom condition to be proud it for years to come, get the very best sale price or to avoid end-of-lease penalties for wear in addition to the lease companies “fair wear and tear” policy.

This may involve repairs to a number of areas, such as full repair in one area, a number of budget repairs and touch-ins and a thorough machine polishing to undo the sign of years of use.

Once done, a very tired and worn out looking car gets a new lease of life with the fresh appearance of a vehicle ready for retailing.

This service is what a car dealer carries out to get the best price for their part exchanges, a typical example being a Vectra purchased for £600 at auction offered on the forecourt for £1795 after full retail preparation and a mechanical service.

Savvy car buyers can save money by cutting out the middle-man, snapping up a bargain on the internet or at auction and using our service to return the car to perfect condition.

We offer a bespoke all-in package deal based on a number of repairs carried out at the same time, please ask for a quote. This service is usually very cost effective for our clients who go on to achieve a much higher sale price for their car or avoid a heftier penalty of returning the car damaged to their company or leasing firm.
