An Insight into Dent Repairs
Motorists often think the processes used will be the same as those employed for major accident repairs. Most of the time, this simply isn’t the case. While larger dent repairs may need a fresh panel or skin, smaller impacts tend to be less of a problem. Wherever possible, we provide paintless dent repairs (PDR), which involves massaging the panel with specialised rods. In many cases, our car body shop can deliver a swift fix for your East Grinstead, Crawley, Horsham or Redhill vehicle without changing the paintwork at all.
Based on the point of impact, we may use a localised repair system. In such cases, the dent will be repaired in a more traditional style using a dolly and flip, or body filler. Once primed and flatted, dent repairs are completed by blending colour on the damaged panel itself, without touching the adjacent ones.
Most bumpers are made of plastic, which means they tend to crack easily. Insurers often overlook repairs in favour of replacements, but this can make your premiums higher. Our body shop can repair your split or broken bumper using a progressive approach, and without having to replace it entirely.
For drivers in Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham and Redhill, we perform the necessary work using low-cost plastic repair systems. This makes the repairs less costly and often results in a more resilient bumper overall.
