Crack on Rear Bumper Letchworth Garden City

November 11, 2016

This crack on the rear bumper of a Vauxhall Corsa was caused by the driver reversing into a solid object. As you can see from the photo below the crack is situated just alongside the rear-blanking cap and is around 4-5 inches long.

This customer was based in Letchworth Garden City, which is on the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire border area. He contacted us through a neighbour who had used our services before. He had originally been quoted over £800 for a new bumper from a body shop that was local to him. As we are mobile and have the expertise for localised repairs such as a cracked bumper we were able to offer him a much-improved price for the repair (£180).

The job was carried out at the customer’s home address and took slightly under 3 hours to fully complete the repair.

The customer was very please with the final result and gave us an unexpected and much appreciated tip for our efforts.

Dented Front and Rear Door Repair Muswell Hill

October 11, 2016

Most people think the a SMART Repair service can only fix small little knocks and scratches but we at Car Body Repairs 4 Less can fix more than that. Since we started the business in 2003 the types of repairs we are capable of fixing has continually increased from small scratches and dents to large panel dents and full side resprays. This job below is an example of the more complex sort of jobs we are capable of taking on.

This customer had parked his car outside his house in #MuswellHill and overnight someone decided that they would drive into the side of it for him. The damage was quite severe, it was an elongated dent that ran from the front door to the rear door on his #BMW. The car was over ten year old and he had no wish to put it through his insurance and was not prepared to pay the £1200 that a body shop had quoted. He contacted us and we agreed to repair the damage for him for just over £300.

As you can see from the photo below the dents were quite severe and a fair amount of filler had to be applied in order to reshape the panel. It’s not the first large repair we have taken on in the last 13 years for more photos of before and after jobs we have carried out see http://www.carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk/Car_Panel_Repairs.htm

Basic Bumper Scuff Repair Stevenage

August 31, 2016

This customer was based in Stevenage in North Hertfordshire. The car had been scuffed while this customer was in a well-known supermarket car park. When they returned to their vehicle they found that someone had gone into the rear bumper and scuffed off the paint.

As scuffs and paintwork scratches go on bumpers, this one is quite basic and a straightforward repair. Most repairs on bumpers generally go down through the plastic and require some kind of heavy filler in order to get the shape back, but this one has only had the paint grazed off. Due to the dramatic difference in the white colour of the scratch and the black colour of the car it looks worse than it actually is.

The photo below shows the damage on the rear bumper, as you can see the near side section on the rear would need to be painted in order to blend in the colour.

The repair was a quick one taking just over an hour and a half to completely repair the damage. The photo below shows the final result. As you can see it looks like new and as if it was never there in the first place.

Warped Bumper Repair Saffron Walden

July 14, 2016

 

Most of the time if you manage to scuff your bumper the only type of damage you would normally get is a few scratches or a scuff over the impact area. In this case the customer caught her bumper on a low protruding post that latched it self on to the rear bumper corner wheel arch edge and warped and twisted the bumper plastic. Its one of the most hardest types of repairs to carry out for its not just a case of filling and spraying but also reshaping the warped part and getting the angles right for the next stage of preparation.

As you can see the far edge of the bumper has been badly pushed in and a large amount of plastic has been ripped off the edge of the panel.

This customer was selling her car and had been quoted over £300 for the repair, which we carried out for £120. This Audi was ready to put up for sale as soon as we were finished putting it back to showroom condition.

This customer was based in Saffron Walden in Essex near the Cambridge boarder. We had previously carried out work for another customer who lived in the same road so it was a recommendation that got us this job.

We arrived nice and early to carry out the work and within 2 hours the job was completed.

Bumper Scuff on Ford in Barnet North London

July 7, 2016

 

Another driver not watching where he was going, at a set of traffic lights caused this scuff on the rear of a Ford Focus based in Barnet North London. The resultant collision caused the paint to be scuffed and deep cracks created on the rear plastic bumper panel.

This customer had been quoted over £450 to repair the damage by a body shop and he would have lost his car for nearly a week. Instead he found our Mobile Paint Repair service on the Internet and sent us some photos of the damage for a quote. We charged him £140 to repair the damage, which is nearly a third of what a body shop would charge. He was happy to go ahead and a date was arranged for the repair.

The hardest part of this repair was reshaping the bumper where it had been warped. Getting the shape right at the preparation stage is key to a good finish so extra care and attention was taken to get the right angles when filling the panel with plastic padding.

The total time taken from arriving at the customer house in Barnet North London and finishing the repair on the Ford Focus took slightly over 2 hours in total.

Smart Repair on a Ferrari

May 22, 2016

We carry out Smart Repairs on all types of vehicles but this has to be my favourite. It’s a bumper scuff low down on the front end of a Ferrari F149 California. This customer lived in North West London and scuffed his car on a high kerb around the corner from his house. He had originally taken it to Ferrari for an estimate and was shocked to find out that the repair was over £850. We were recommended to him by one of his close friends who we had carried out work for previously.

The damage was not as bad as Ferrari had made out, you didn’t need to replace the bumper, which Ferrari had advised, it was just a simple scuff repair like those we carry out on a day to day basis on every other car. Luckily the customer had adequate cover for it had been raining and was pretty windy most of the day.

The job took us just under 2 hours and just required a small amount of finishing filler for some of the deeper bumper scratches.

Bumper Paint Repair Stevenage

May 14, 2016

Some car colours can be harder to spray than others, yellow and gold are possible the hardest to match and the hardest to blend in. Even a brand new yellow or gold car that has been sprayed at the manufacturing plant can look slightly different from panel to panel so just imagine how hard it is for a mobile Smart Repair service to try and blend the paint in on the same panel.

This customer in Stevenage had scuffed the car while getting it valeted. The damage couldn’t be in a more difficult place, right on the edge of the bumper joining the rear wing/wheel arch. What made the position of the damage so difficult is that there is virtually no room for us to blend the paint in on the top edge of the bumper. So we had to finish the paint and spray right up to the panel’s edge. We didn’t want to spray the paint and blend over the rear wing so the colour match had to be near enough perfect to keep the repairable are small and on the same panel.

The colour match couldn’t be more perfect so spraying the bumper corner was all that was required. The finish of the bumper scuff repair was back to showroom condition and looked like it never happened in the first place. The job took just under two hours to complete.

Bumper Paint Repair Essex

March 9, 2016

This customer was based in Wickford in Essex; he had his car damaged while shopping in a well-known supermarket. He returned to his vehicle to find the paint on the front near side bumper corner scuffed and scratched. Whoever had scuffed his bumper did not leave a note or contact details so he had to either go through his insurance or have it repaired privately. Using his insurance was not an option due to the high excess he had to pay and the quotes he was getting from body shops were extortionate. He found our details on the Internet and sent us some photos for a bumper repair quote. We quoted him £120 inclusive of all charges to have the scuff repaired and he was over the moon, a date and time were set for us to come over to him and carry out the repairs out side his house.

Scuff on near side bumper corner

As you can see the bumper paint has been scuffed off over a wide area of the bumper corner. The scratches required some filling due to their depth. The hardest part of the bumper repair was blending in the paint. Silver metallic can be quite tricky especially the older the car is, but with over 12 years experience behind us we made light work of that one.

Repair took around 2 hours to complete at customers house

The Paintwork repair on the front bumper took us just under 2 hours to complete and looks like new. The customer was not expecting the result to be as good as it was. He thought that where our prices are far less than body shops the final result would not be as good.
