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.

Car Scratch Repair Cost

December 30, 2012

To work out an accurate price for a car scratch repair depends on what panel or panels that need to be repaired, the severity of damage and size of the area that needs to be sprayed. If you send us a photo of your car scratch damage we can work out a cost and get back to you within 24 hours. You can do these 3 different ways.

1. Email. Take a few photos of the affected area, a close up to give us an idea of severity and then a wide shot so we can see the size of area that needs to be sprayed. Then send them to sales@carbodyrepairs4less.co.uk you will have a reply within 24 hours.

2. SMS. Take the photos as above then text them to 07966799721. This method is the quickest, we can reply to you within an hour.

3. Fill out our form. You can fill out our Car Body Repair Form and upload your photos from there. We will contact you within 24 hours on receipt of your request.

Our car scratch repair prices are as accurate as we can make them from the photos that we receive. In a very few cases if the photos are of poor quality or do not show the damage in its entirety, then the cost will be revaluated on site.

If you have difficulties in using the suggested media types to send us photos laid out above then you can always just give us a call on our free phone number 0800 0778832 and when we are in or near your area you live we will pop round and give you a quote on the car scratch damage in person.

There are some instances when car body repairs 4 less will not be able to repair s scratch such as:

1. The scratch is the full length of the car
This can be a problem for we use a SMART repair technique which means that the area we can repair is limited to a size.

2. The scratch is on a bonnet
Most bonnet scratches no matter how small will probably need the entire bonnet sprayed to blend in the paint due to the size of the panel. This being the case a SMART repair would not suffice and only a body shop would be able to repair this.

3. The scratch is on the roof
It’s the same with the roof as is with the bonnet.

How To Prevent Scuffs While Parking

July 23, 2012

When there’s not much room to park your car and manoeuvring is difficult it is sometimes inevitable that you might scuff it. It’s usually the bumper that gets scuffed first then the wings. Most car body scuffs are caused while parking and not from collisions on the road, it’s when someone misjudges the width of their car or that of someone else’s when accidents like bumper scuffs can happen. It’s virtually impossible to prevent a scuff from occurring we can only reduce the possibility of an impact.

How to prevent bumper scuffs

80% of scratches on bumpers are caused by parking so try and park in areas away from everyone else and in larger spaces, it might mean an few minutes’ walk to where you are going but will save you money in the process. If you have difficulty when parking in your garage and always seem to catch the bumper, try and place old bits of carpets on the walls or areas where you usually make contact with, this will help prevent the bumper from being scratched.

If you have tried all the techniques above and still seem to get damage then you are either very unlucky or a magnet for trouble. The only fool proof way of preventing scuffs that are self inflicted would be to have sensors fitted to both the front and rear bumpers these give you ample notification of an objects distance and proximity to your car.

If you do get a scuff and need it fixed you can fill out our car body repair quote form for a free no obligation quote.
