Scratch Repair in Loughton Essex

June 24, 2016

Colliding with a low bollard in a supermarket car park caused this light scuff on the lower front bumper corner. The damage on the off side lower bumper is only slight and covers a small area on that section. This customer was based in Loughton Essex and could not afford to lose his car to get it fixed so he called us. We came to the customer’s house in Loughton Essex and carried out the repair work on his drive. The job took a little under two hours and looked like new once completed.

While we were there we also touched in a few stone chips on the bonnet and door edges free of charge. The results of the bumper repair were nothing short of perfect and the customer was very pleased with his finished repair.

Bumper Scuff Repair In Ware Hertfordshire

March 19, 2014

This scuff on the front section of a BMW in Ware in Hertfordshire was caused by a large van that got too close to the front of the customers car while parking. The damage looks worse on the photo than it actually is, most of the scratches on the corner are superficial with only a few deep scratches on the edges. The colour is a nice grey which blended in easily and with the weather being nice and warm for a change the job was completed within 2 hours. The customer could not believe the finished result and said she would recommend our services in a heart beat.

Bumper Crack Damage Bishops Stortford

April 29, 2013

This crack on the rear of a Mini was caused by the customer reversing into a post which split the rear bumper plastic and slightly deformed the panel. As you can see from the photo below the crack is quite severe and requires a fair amount of attention to bring it back to showroom condition.

The crack first needed to be sealed back together and any distortions corrected with different heat techniques. Then any scuffs or scratches filled then the whole thing painted and lacquered.

Bumper Damage and Repair

April 5, 2013

There are more cars than ever on the roads today, consequently the amount of accidental collisions have increased as a result. Whether it’s parking your car or driving on roads, it’s difficult not to sustain a knock or too whether it’s your fault or not, its part and parcel or owning a car and an unavoidable part of driving in the automotive environment we live in today.

Modern cars are designed and built to cope with these types of collisions with bumpers on the front and rear of vehicles that can compress and fracture protecting the rest of the car from the main force of the impact. Replacing these panels can be costly especially with the increase in metallic and pearlescent paint that is needed to re-spray the part to match the rest of the car. So without replacing the entire panel, is there an alternative method of repair which is more cost efficient? The answer to this question is yes, a mobile car body repair service.

Mobile car body repair services such as http://www.carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk have the ability to fix most types of damage on bumpers such as scuffs and scrapes as well as cracks and holes. There is however a limit to what a mobile service can repair for if the panel is falling off or the hole is too large then it would have to be replaced at a much higher cost. This type of service is much more cost and time efficient than a static body shop for they only repair the damaged area and not the whole part which in turn saves time on the job and cost for the service.
Another option would be to use a static body shop. This type of service is more expensive than the one mentioned above but are more capable in handling larger impact damage such as split bumpers and panel replacements.

As you can see from the information above the repair options available all depend on the type of impact, fits a light scuff or small hole or crack then a mobile repair service will do but if it’s a heavier impact then only a body shop could fix the damage.

DIY Mistakes

January 7, 2013

Most jobs that we carry out are straight forward and simple such as bumper scuffs, scratches, dents and chips, on the occasion we do get to repair more varied types of damage such as in this case of a DIY job gone wrong.

This customer lived in north London and had a scratch on the door edge of his silver car, he decided to repair the scratch himself.  The filling and prep work had been done to a good standard (but that’s the easy part) but the hardest part (painting blending and lacquering) was yet to come. Without all the correct equipment, materials and training it’s virtually impossible to paint and lacquer the repair to a satisfactory finish which he found out. He eventually admitted defeat and called our mobile scratch repair service to come to North London and fix what he had done. Below are photos of the damage and the subsequent repair.
