Repairs will take around 24 hours to carry out. For example, if the vehicle comes in at 9am, it will be ready to collect around lunch time the following day. We will give you an estimate of the time to repair when we provide the costed estimate. If the repaires are minor, and only a machine polish or touch in (like stone chips) is required, then we will only need the vehicle a couple of hours.
With more and more people opting to run lease vehicles, there is an increasing demand to ensure that vehicles are returned at the end of term in the agreed condition as set out in the contract agreement - we are happy to carry out assessments to ensure that the vehicle condition meets the requirements of your individual provider; where there may be any damage or imperfections that may fall outside of what is agreed, we are happy to provide a quotation to rectify these, again at a fraction of the charges that may be made by the lease company
We do need to see your vehicle in order to give an accurate cost. We are happy to provide an estimate from any images that you send to us, but this is subject to receiving the vehicle as there could be damage that was not visible in an image. We will always provide costs before commencing any work, and where undisclosed damage is found (damage that was not obvious at the time of the quote or on removing parts etc) then we will contact you during the course of repair to advise these additional costs.
On every vehicle there is a chassis plate and on this is a simple code for the paint. We take this code and put into our laptop where we get the formulation directly from the paint manufacturer who created this for the vehicle manufacturer. We then mix this exact formulation in our fully equipped mixing room.
It is recommended that you leave this for 72 Hours. Whilst the paint is touch dry it will still be curing for a little while longer. Avoidance of moisture and pressure washers is strongly advised to help prevent any faults occurring. It is advised however, that no polish or waxes should be used until 30 days after the repair to ensure that the Lacquer has fully cured.
We do a form of plastic welding however the bumper must all be joined (i.e. not in 2 or 3 parts) We do advise that in some circumstances the vibrations can reopen the crack at a later date depending on the severity of the damage.
