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.

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.

Save Money on Car Body Repairs

June 3, 2012

Even though using a mobile car body repair service saves you money on your car body repairs you can still save more. This can be achieved by having more than one repair carried out at the same time. Yes the price is greater than having a single repair but cheaper than having two areas of damage repaired on separate occasions.

How this works

If you have a bumper scratch on your car and you have this repaired in one visit by a mobile smart repair service the price will be fixed and little if any discount will be given. Where if you have more than one area of damage on your car and have them all repaired on the same visit the margin for a discount will be much greater. This is mainly down to the reduced overheads, for the smart repair technician is already on site therefore no additional fuel charges or call out and it costs much less to make up a larger quantity of paint once than multiple smaller amounts. Not only are the overheads lower but it takes less time repairing multiple repairs in one visit than in separate ones given the technician the ability to fit in more jobs within the day.

Save money on your car body repairs

You could save lots!!

So if you have more than one type of car body damage like seat burn repair, panel scratch, bumper scratch or dent, try and have these all repaired at one visit for it will not only put your car back in to showroom condition but also save you money in your pocket to.
