They will also ensure that you do not have to pay your policy excess. In addition, the accident management company can pursue compensation for personal injury and out-of-pocket expenses if required. We deal with your insurance company direct and handle all the formalities concerning inspection, authorization and payment meaning less time and hassle for you.

Pre Purchase Inspection

If you are considering purchasing a vehicle, new or second hand, you may need assurance from a professional source that the vehicle is exactly what it appears to be. Our extensive experience in vehicle repair and paintwork can be used for a pre-purchase inspection and report. We will endeavor to find any previous accident repairs that have not been carried out to a satisfactory standard which could affect the price or, indeed, the safety of the vehicle. Call for details for our Inspection Report prices.

Small To Medium Repairs

Minor vehicle damage like dents, scuffs and scratches to panels, bumpers, wheel arches and interior trim are inevitable in today’s driving conditions. Broken plastics, spoilers, grills and headlights are extremely expensive to replace. In the majority of all cases, using our specialist plastic welding and finishing techniques the need for replacement is eliminated.

MOT Welding

Both major and minor repairs carried out, guaranteed to pass MOT inspection regardless of prior damage. MOT inspection/test can be arranged before your vehicle is returned to you.

SMART Repairs

SMART repair solutions limit the repair to the damaged area only and not the complete panel. Using specially formulated paints, finishes can be restored giving a near perfect job. The restored repair area is undetectable from the original factory paint finish and is completed in hours rather than days thus providing significant cost savings and time savings to you the valued customer.
