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

Mobile Dent Repair Ware

The car was a lease hire vehicle that was due to go back the following week. The customer did not want to pay the £500 excess to get it fixed through his insurance so he gave us a call. We were local to Ware and got to him within a week. After assessing the damage we quoted him just over £200 to fix the dent damage, he agreed and the job went ahead.

The hardest part of the repair was getting the curved shape back from the window edge to the edge of the tailgate closest to the wing. After a lot of banging and clattering and a smidgen of filler the desired shape was achieved. All that was left was painting and lacquering.

The photo below shows the finished article. As you can see the dent is almost perfect, and passed the lease car inspection with flying colours.

Mobile Car Body Repair

January 21, 2016

This damage on the front wing of an 8-year-old Ford Focus was the result of another car reversing into it in a shopping centre car park. As you can see from the photos below the damage is quite severe, most of the front wing has been badly dented and warped as a result of the collision. This sort of car body repair damage we would not normally take on, it’s at the limits of what we can repair. But the customer had already been quoted over £600 by a few different body shops and couldn’t warrant paying that sort of price, especially when the car is as old as it is, so he contacts us.

This job was probably our trickiest to date, and considering we have been in the industry for over 12 years that’s saying something.

To fix the massive dent is not just a case of slapping as much filler in the dent as possible, but using as little filler as you can. This was achieved by reshaping the wing with plenty of brute force with a variety of different tools. Once the basic shape was achieved then it was time for the filler. Only a skimming of filler was required for we managed to remove most of the dent and panel distortion first. Then paint and lacquer.

As you can see from the completed repair photo, the damage has all gone and only took us just under 4 hours to carry out the car body repair.

This customer lived in Buckhurst Hill in Essex. If you live within this area or any others that we service like Hertfordshire, Essex or North London and you need a similar job carried out on your car, give us a call on 08000778832 or email us a photo to sales@carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk

This customer contacted us after she had scraped her car while trying to park next to a brick wall, as you can see from the photo below the rear wing has been dented and scuffed as a result of the collision. The damage itself is on the verge of being a body shop repair due to the severity of the impact, the customer had been quoted over £500 to have it fixed at a body shop. We quoted her under £200 to repair the rear wing on her car, she accepted and off we went.

Dent and Scuff Repair Enfield

May 21, 2013

This scuff and dent on the rear of a ford focus 2002 was caused by a relative of the customer who reversed into the back of her car while trying to pull out of a school car park. As you can see from the photo below the damage is quite extensive. This customer contacted http://www.carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk for a quote by texting us a photo of the affected area. We responded within 1 hour with a fixed price for the repair which was accepted and a date and time booked.

As you can see from the damage above the dent is located on the rear near side of the vehicle.  The dent could not be pulled out fully due to its location on the panel, so a mixture of PDR and filling had to be used.

The whole job from start to finish took a total of 3 hours and was drivable straight away. The customer was very happy with the result.

Large Dent Repair Harlow

July 11, 2012

This dent is located on the front near side wing just above the bumper. This customer had someone hit his car whilst he was parked outside a shopping centre in Harlow Essex, and left no note. He immediately thought about going through his insurance but realised his excess was high and that he didn’t have protected no claims discount and didn’t fancy going back to being a 17 year old first time driver again. He got a body shop quote which was quite high at £650, they were going to replace the wing and spray the whole bumper, and he wasn’t too concerned about the scuff on the bumper he just wanted the dent fixed which the worst bit was. He found our details on the internet and sent us a photo via email. We had a good look at the damage and quoted him £150 to repair the wing dent, he was needless to say amazed with the low cost and immediately decided to go with us to carry out the repair on his Audi.

As you can see from the photo the dent on the wing has crossed the contour line that runs parallel with the wheel arch and has been scuffed on the wing too.

The repair time for the car body damage took 3 hours to complete and involved removing the dent the best we could by using a slide hammer then filling in the remainder to bring back the original shape of the Audi wing. As you can see the dent and scuff on the front wing is invisible to the naked eye and well worth the £150 paid by the customer.
