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.

Large Dented Scuff Repair Hatfield

September 20, 2013

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.

Rust Repairs Wickford Essex

August 28, 2012

Severe rust damage can be difficult and sometimes impossible to remove for a mobile car body repair service, it’s always best to have the rust fixed as soon as you see it raise its ugly head. The only 100% way of removing severe rust would be to cut the section out and re-weld a new one back on, unfortunately our mobile service is not capable of this type of repair, we can only remove light rust damage and anything more should be taken to a body shop or an accident repair centre to be remedied.

Below is a photo of some rust damage that a customer had on his BMW on the rear wheel arch, it’s at the higher end of what we can fix and if left any longer would have to be taken to a body shop to get removed.

As you can see from the photo the rust spot has not yet flaked off and is situated on the inside of the wheel arch. This customer lives in Wickford in Essex and contacted us via email, he sent us through some photos from which we gave him a quote and possible date and time for the repair.

The repair took 2 hours to fully complete, not only did we repair the rust damage but also the dent too that can be seen to the left of the rust on the first photo. The customer was very pleased for he originally had the car booked in with a body shop for three times the cost of what we charged him.

Olympic chaos

July 27, 2012

This summer the greatest spectacle on earth comes to London, the 2012 Olympic Games. It’s due to officially open on Friday the 28th and set to run over a number of weeks throughout the summer period. With the increase of traffic around the Olympic site and venues across London, driving to and through some areas of London to carry out car body repairs will prove to be impossible, especially with the reduced amount of lanes on some main roads which have been recently designated to official Olympic  vehicles only.

So if you live within London and require our body repair services then please take this into consideration. We will still cover all the areas in north and east London for car body repairs but it might take us slightly longer to get to you. If you can wait till the end of the games then that would probably be your best option but if it’s something that needs to be repaired ASAP then give us a call on 0800 0778832 or send us a photo of the damage sales@carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk and we might be able to help.

During this period we will not be able to offer our quote on visit service in some parts of London, this is due to the time it would take to get into and out of the area. Sorry for any inconvenient this may cause.

Enjoy the Olympics, Come on Great Brittan!

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.
