With more and more vehicles becoming available and registered on the roads in the UK, its inevitable that more bumps, scrapes and minor incidents are going to occur. Knowing how to approach a body repair in that situation can save you a lot of money on repairs.

Understanding the repairs you need

Car body repair and paint shops are becoming increasingly popular and more and more motorists are using their services to get their vehicles back on the road.

After the bulk of incidents most vehicles will need a body repair of some kind, along with a paint job or complete re-spray.

Bodywork Repairs:

The majority of bodywork repairs that are brought into our garage are completed as a result of poor awareness when driving. A lot of the minor dents we repair appear because of motorists misjudging the volume of traffic at junctions, which inevitably lead to collisions.

Other smaller damages come to the lower half of the vehicles, including alloys, bumpers and side panels. These often become damaged when drivers do not observe the distance between kerbs and the car itself.

As a result, the front and rear bumpers become suspect to scratches, dents and punctures.

Paintwork and Re-Spraying:

Naturally over time, cars and any other vehicle as a matter of fact will start to collect some minor cosmetic damages such as surface scratches on their bodywork. This is the most common reason for larger vehicles coming into our repair store.

However, occasionally, some drivers will attempt to use a car spray paint to cover up damages themselves without going through the correct process, which will eventually lead to long term damages and corrosion.

And finally, when we complete a car body repair, we will typically also provide a full re-spray too. This is only ever completed when we repair a vehicle that has been involved in a large incident on the road, but deemed repairable and safe for future use.
