Dent Removal Repair Hertfordshire and Essex

December 11, 2017

As a mobile service we come across all sorts of dents from large football shaped ones to tiny pin sized door dents, all can be fixed by us no matter what shape or size they are. As long as there is no internal structure problem or high impact crash repairs there is hope. We are a mobile Dent Repair Service based in Hertfordshire and cover Essex Herts and North London.

Most types of dents can be pulled or pushed out using a PDR (Paintless Dent Removal) technique, but that is not always the case. Sometimes you might have a dent that can’t be removed or repaired by the PDR technique so we have to resort to other methods. This mainly consists of getting as much of the dent out as you can with traditional PDR, then skimming in and repainting. Painting a dent can sometimes be frowned upon but if the paintwork has already been damaged as a result of the impact that caused the dent then a certain amount of painting will be required to get rid of the scuff. If done correctly you would never know the paintwork would have been done.

The hardest types of dents to fix are the ones that are slightly bigger than a tennis ball and are on a contour line like a wheel arch or door curve, and if there is no access behind the dent as well as it being scuffed. This type of dent is more common than you might think. Below are some photos of dent removal and dent repairs that we have carried out over Hertfordshire, Essex and North London

As you can see from the images above dents can be removed or repaired without the need to go through your insurance. If you have a dent on your car and have been quoted a huge sum by a body shop to get it fixed give us a call on 08000778832 or email us a few photos sales@carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk. We aim to reply within 12 hours with a quote and an estimated repair time.

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

After multiple applications of filler and primer we managed to regain the panel shape and then all that was needed was to prime, paint and lacquer both the front and rear doors.

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.

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.
