Ford Van Body Repairs In Essex

S.M.A.R.T. repair is smart because it saves you money. Why pay to have whole body panels repaired for a single scuff, or have to order expensive replacement parts? Our range of services can tackle a wide range of common problems.

S.M.A.R.T. means 'Small-Medium Area Repair Technique'.

At some point, most vehicles pick up damage of some sort. It's pretty much unavoidable. Dents and chips in your paintwork can significantly decrease the value of your car in themselves, but worst of all, any kind of break in the paintwork will eventually lead to rust. The prevention of corrosion is in itself a solid reason to have damage seen to.

Repair Types

Bumper Scuffs

By repairing only the damaged area and not respraying whole body panels, S.M.A.R.T. repair is the ideal solution to scuffs on bumpers, wings and other minor damage which doesn't require panel replacement.

Scratch Repairs

In cases, where bodywork has become scratched, it is possible to fill the scratch with layers of paint. We then flatten, buff and polish the area. Depending on the colour of the paintwork, plus the position and severity of the damage, this will often produce a 60-95% improvement. While not invisible, this is a very cost-effective way of dealing with some kinds of damage and is a cheaper alternative to a full body shop repair.

Stone Chips

Stone chips are the most common kind of damage, especially for vans that do lots of motorway miles. Each chip in itself is usually so small that people tend to overlook this kind of damage and just accept it as inevitable. But having stone chips repaired with the correctly matched paint can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of your van, especially on dark-coloured paintwork.

Windscreen Chips

Windscreen chip repair works by injecting a hard, clear plastic resin into the chip under high pressure, then burnishing and polishing the resin flush with the screen. This will leave the area fully sealed and repaired.

If you get a chip in your screen, don't delay in calling us. Unless fixed right away, it can often get worse very quickly in cold weather. For the best results, the chip needs to be clean. So, if possible, cover the chip with sticky tape to prevent dirt getting into the chip.

Should your windscreen be excessively damaged and not suitable for a localised repair we do offer a full windscreen replacement service using original manufacturer parts and glass. Please contact us for further details.
