Car Body Spraying: Make Sure You Get It Right

Posted: 3rd August 2017
Type: General

Our role as a car body spraying specialist comes with a number of responsibilities, and one of them is making sure that you make the right decision before you commit to respraying a vehicle.

It’s all too easy to simply go into a respraying garage and tell them that you want to repaint the car, and there are a few garages out there that would simply accept that.

However, you need to make sure that you’re making the right decision; whether that is financially or physically for your car. Make sure that you consider the following points:

Do You Need a Specific Colour?

Now the bulk of most car colours are easily available, however, a lot of car enthusiasts enjoy adding their own personal touch to their vehicles.

In most cases this usually includes a specific colour scheme, both internally and externally. Although, there is the possibility that some vehicle manufacturers prefer you to use a brand and quality of paint approved by them.

For example, if you own a BMW, it may be a good idea to contact a BMW service centre in Milton Keynes to see if they have a list of pre-approved colours that you can use.

Alternatively, your best bet would be to contact a local dealership.

Is The Garage Locally Based?

If you’ve decided on a final colour, the next thing to do is to find a local garage with plenty of experience in spraying cars.

A lot of car body spraying companies start up because they think its an easy way to make money – its more complicated than that, and if you want to be good at it, you need to be able to commit to it and offer a reliable service.

Using a local company will keep your costs down. Having to travel great distances will only contribute to your final costs and that doesn’t even include finding a way of travelling back if the garage is unable to offer you a courtesy car.
