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.

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.

Bumper Scuff Repair Wickford

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.

Cheap Car Body Repairs

February 29, 2016

At Car Body Repairs 4 Less we are not only local, efficient and friendly but also cheap. We provide Cheap Car Body Repairs for Hertfordshire Essex and North London. If you have any minor collision damage such as a bumper scuff, key scratch, seat burn, stone chip or a dent that you need fixing and your not prepared to pay over the odds for the repair at a body shop, give us a call. We provide a mobile service that is cheap efficient, friendly and local to you.

A great example on how we can provide such a cheap car body repair service is that we are mobile so very low overheads, a typical bumper scuff would cost around £120 and can be fixed within a couple of hours, while a body shop would charge you near on £400 for the same repair.

The key to us being able to provide this cheap car body repair service is all down to the ability to spray small areas. What I mean is that for a standard scuff on any panel a body shop would spray the whole panel and even up the adjoining panels to blend it in regardless if it needed spraying or not. They make up huge amounts of paint use lots of lacquer and take a long time to complete the repairs which all adds to the cost. What we do is only spray the effected area and not the whole component. By doing this we dramatically reduce the materials we use and keep the repair time down to a minimum so saving costs on both fronts. If you think that all this cost saving would have an impact on the final result, then take a look at the examples below of completed jobs.

Bumper Scuff Example

We only needed to spray a quarter of the bumper to blend in this one.

Key Scratch Example

Mobile Dent Repair Ware

February 8, 2016

The customer reversing into another object while trying to park caused this dent on the rear tailgate of a ford focus based in Ware Hertfordshire. As you can see from the photos below the dent is located on the off side rear tailgate between the window and rear wing.

Mobile Dent Repair Ware

Dent on Tailgate Ware Hertfordshire

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.
