How long are quotes valid for?

Do you carry out insurance repairs?
Yes. We will need authorisation from your insurer to be able to proceed with the work. If you have been asked to collect quotes for repair work by your insurer, we will be pleased to assist.

Will the repair be noticeable?
No repair will be identical to an automotive factory finish, which is machine-sprayed to tolerances beyond human capability, however we ensure a high quality, bodyshop standard repair with a lifetime ownership guarantee.

Will you get the colour right? Do you use the manufacturer’s paint?
We use the world’s most respected colour matching system and use computer-assisted mixing to create the original paint colour, ensuring the best possible match.

When is the car ready to drive?
The car is ready for ordinary road use and weather exposure immediately after we have completed the repair.

Do you guarantee your repairs?
All bodywork repairs have a lifetime guarantee whilst ownership of the vehicle is retained by that person. Alloy wheel repairs are guaranteed for 12 months.

How do you accept payment?
We can accept payment by debit card, credit card (subject to a 2% charge) or BACS transfer. Our office team will contact you to take payment once your vehicle has been returned.

How should I look after my bodywork repair?
We advise you not to wash, polish or wax the repaired area by hand or automatic machinery for a minimum of 5 days.

How should I look after my alloy wheels repairs?
Please allow 1 week before the first clean and ensure you use mild soapy warm water to clean the alloys regularly. Avoid car-wash wheel-cleaners, as well as jet/pressure washers as they can strip the lacquer and paint from stone chips or kerb damage on the wheel. Whilst there are dedicated alloy wheel cleaners available some may contain acid based chemicals which can erode the finish in the long term, whilst giving a good result in the short term. We would recommend you only use non-caustic based alloy wheel cleaners. Sadly we are unable to repair diamond cut alloys.
