Unfortunately, you will eventually end up with a scratched car; maybe from a branch sticking out on a country lane, misjudging a wall or even someone intentionally damaging it. Before SMART repair, your only option was to go to your local bodyshop and leave it there for a few days for them to repair your car. Now you have the option of SMART repair from North West Express Bodyshop, we can repair scratches on your car at a low cost, in a short amount of time.
There are many different ways for us to remove scratches on your car depending on the damaged area and how bad the scratch is. Sometimes with light scratches, we can use our machine polishers and our special polish formulas to polish out the scratch however at other times, we need to mix the correct paint and spray the damaged area.
THE RIGHT PAINT COLOUR
The most common question we get asked is ‘will the paint match?’ We understand why we are asked this question, as many car bodyshops look at your paint code, make a call to a paint factors and order in some paint. The paint factors will mix the standard shade and send it out. The body shop will then “blend” the colour to lose the variant difference. With some paint codes having up to 13 variants, we can see why some cars get painted the wrong colour.
We have invested a lot of money in our paint scheme and actually mix the paint for your car on site in our express bodyshop. We look up your paint code, check the different variants and mix the correct colour for your car – our aim is to keep the repair area as small as possible and to do this it is important we mix the correct colour.
We want all our customers to recommend us to their friends so it is highly important to us that your car looks great and the colour is right.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WATER BASED PAINTS
As with any industry, products evolve and the old cellulose paints which used to be industry standard are no longer a product we are even allowed to use. We use the latest water based paint products to give an excellent colour match which are environmentally friendly. Water based paints are now the industry standard in car refinishing.
Stone chips are probably the most common cause of paint damage; especially for cars that do lots of motorway miles. Cars such as BMW’s seem to attract them more than most. Some people overlook this kind of damage and just accept it as one of those things, however, those of us who care about the appearance of our cars know that this can significantly effect the car’s value.
The other common cause of scratches on cars paintwork are key scratches, normally caused by vandals. We are approached by many people who have had their car keyed and we offer a low cost, fast, efficient service to repair these scratches and make your car look great again.
