Amazing service, very competent mechanic (Michael), and a very helpful owner Adam. The work required for my car was quite technical but these guys went about it very nicely and got it done on time. I am going to be a regular customer now:)
Fixed my initial problem on car, they even collected it from my house as I was at work. Cost me around 30 pound, one problem was my car mats were covered in grime afterwards I don't mind the car exterior coming back dirty but the original mats are stained and I found a food box half eaten left in the rear passenger foot well. If you don't mind cleaning up food and grime stuck in your cream floor mats then this is the place to use.
Very good smart repair on bodywork of my car
Great service, booked through website first thing in the morning, car was booked in and fixed with two hours! Very friendly staff and very helpful, got me back on the road in no time. Thank you very much!
Contacted Hayers motor repairs through web-chat on whocanfixmycar.com and received speedy responses to my enquiries on a clutch replacement. They were the cheapest even after I requested a specified clutch. Customer service was honest and timely. The garage did exactly what I asked and the Job was sorted with a full explanation of work completed and faults found. Couldn't give a full five-star rating as I didn't know if my car was secure overnight for parking due to lack of carpark and the garage was full and busy inside. I would recommend this garage.
Friendly staff ,did an excellent job and very reasonable price
I am very happy with the service provided by this garage, they were extremely helpful and did the rear and front brake pads for me,and all done in a couple of hours.
Picked my car up and had it fixed the same day
Excellent customer service. A good 'old school garage with wealths of experience. Kept in the loop the entire time and they took care of.my vehicle as if it was their own. No scratches anywhere. I've spent years looking for a reliable honest service from a mechanic and I've found it. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Very happy.
Excellent service, booked me in for the work very quickly. Friendly and polite. All work done as requested without any extras being added on. I would highly recommend. Thank you.
Very friendly service and highly competitive prices. Usually when you take your car in for a service they want it for the whole day( to service it at their convenience) but here I could book a time slot and collect again in 90 minutes-brilliant. I've had some "dodgy" mechanics of late, but feel I can totally trust this garage to do a good job and at a fair price. I know where to go in future when I need more work done.
Out of the 3 garages I chose Autotrics due to its location and reviews. Although all 3 garages had reasonable feedback. Autotrics checked my car and told me it didn’t need as much work as stated on my MOT fail report. They carried out the work needed within a morning as agreed. Fantastic result. Very friendly team and honest as I wouldn’t have know what exactly was needed or not! Definitely a team I would use again and recommend to family and friends. So glad I used whocanfixmycar.com and Autotrics
Nice freindly people. Job done.happy.
Great garage, friendly staff, great knowledge and help , would recommend. Thank you
Brilliant service picked my car up fromBbirmingham 8.30am kept for 2 days new clutch plus service great price. Did it 4 months ago waiting to see how it went no problem would recommend.
Had my clutch replaced on my Cleo here a few weeks back now and couldn't really fault their customer service. Original quote was £260 which I was very sceptical about, considering Halford wanted nearly £800 off me which was a definite no. In the end cost £400 because a couple of bits were worn out as well which considering you're getting a quote without anyone actually looking at the car it's expected to go up a bit.but in the end new clutch and a service and everything works perfectly 3 weeks on.drives like a brand new car and they managed to do it in a day even with me forgetting to give them the locking nuts so they couldn't start the work till 11 and I had the car back at 4.very happy with all the work and service done.would recommend completely!
Good service, very pleased
good service price was right I will be using them from now on
Very helpful, they listened and advised. I would recommend these 100% polite. I will be using them in future
Great job ...just minor laqour oversparay which isn't really visible but only to a trained eye. My brother had his Audi resprayed and they did a excellent job.
Excellent workmanship, very patient guys. Stored my car whilst I sourced the parts. Experts at panel alignment, dent removal and resprays. Definitely would recommend. 10/10 Thank you!
Friendly competent staff , good price for work
GREAT JOB! Can't believe the car looks like new. Both Dany and co were very polite and kept me informed every step of the way. Big job only took a couple of days. No question would recommend to any and everyone! Cheers Guys!!!
Good service. Just they didn’t give me receipt for the whole repair. I need to go there and ask for receipt as I need it for tax assessment.
I would recommend this garage. excellent customer services and Badar waited after closing hours for me to collect my car.
I can not recommend the service, speed and value enough. I will be using ‘The Mechanic ‘ in the future.
Very friendly and courteous. Prompt service. Got you back on the road in a reasonable time.
Panel beating is a job carried out by specialist bodywork technicians who are able to utilise specific tools and techniques to reshape the metal on the body of a car.
If you are involved in an accident, it will often be the body that takes the brunt of the damage as panels on a car are designed to absorb impact and reduce the force of a crash by cushioning the blow.
Even though a car may have suffered a huge impact, it doesn’t always mean that the panels need to be replaced.
Panel bashing involves using a huge variety of tools to manipulate the metal and get it back to it's original shape.
Depending on the extent of the damage, the amount of time and money spent will vary, however the cost is likely to be less than replacing an entire panel.
Getting a respray is a quick and easy job which most specialist body shops will be able to carry out.
Depending on the facilities at the body shop you choose, the time the job will take will vary.
Some specialists will have state of the art spraying booths and work with classic and high end cars, these facilities will be able to deliver the highest quality of respray work as the paint and delivery system will be the best avaliable.
However the job is likely to be more expensive than a conventional body shop.
The time taken and cost of the serivce will depend on the type of paint and the size of the area requiring respray.
Wrapping a car can help protect the paintwork from weather, chipping and rusting as well as UV rays which can fade the paint on your car.
Furthermore if you happen to scratch or scuff your car, the wrapping will take the brunt of the damage and so protect the underlying paint.
You can have your car wrapped to display specific graphics if you are interested in changing the aesthetic of your car. If you want a stripe on your car or other shapes, you can make the request from a specialist who will provide you with a quote.
Before a vinyl wrap is applied; all of the lights, door handles, trims and badges will be removed from the body of the car.
Special car wrapping surface cleaner will then be applied to your car before the wrap is applied.
Welding is an important part of bodywork car repair as it is essential for fixing different pieces of metal together.
Welding is a highly skilled job and should not be attempted unless you are a trained professional.
There are a huge amount of uses for welding on a vehicle as new parts can be created and existing ones can be repaired.
Many different parts of a car can be repaired with the help of a welding expert so do not think your car is written off if something falls out of the engine!
Rust removal can be a job completed without the need of a mechanic, however it depends on the extent of the damage and the area which is affected.
Rust forms when an anode, cathode and electrolyte combine.
The metal in your car acts as the cathode and anode which reacts with water (the electrolyte).
Even if your car is under cover, rust will form as a result of these elements coming together if the climate is humid enough.
You can buy specific products online which can help remove rust which are effective at repairing damage, however its effectiveness will vary on the extent of the damage.
The cost of a rust repair will once more depend on the extent of the damage.
Getting a scratch or scruff is common for cars in the UK however they can be perfectly removed with the right technical knowledge, tools and materials.
It’s important to remember that even if you have suffered from extensive scratching or scuffs, a trained professional has the ability to remove them with precision.
Removing a scratch is far cheaper than having an entire body piece replaced like a bumper so always check with a body shop to see if they can remove a scratch before replacing anything.
On average it doesn’t take too long to have your body work repaired when it comes to scratches and scruffs.
It’s important that you get a car scratch removed as soon as possible as it may get worse over time and the value of your vehicle will reduce!
Having a scratch removed by an expert is the best option unless you are a trained professional, as there are a variety of materials and techniques involved in the process.
The cost and time taken to complete the work will depend entirely on the extent of the damage to the body work so make sure to get as many quotes as possible to avoid paying over the odds.
The mechanic will apply the paint to the car scratch, or car scuff, as part of the bodywork repair. The Paintwork repair required for removing car scratches and car scuffs shouldn’t vary in time or cost greatly, from garage to garage.
The bodywork required on a car restoration will be significant as whole panels are likely to require replacement and the ones which stay as part of the original vehicle, will need to be welded, have rust and scratches removed.
A full restoration make take years and they often do, as mechanics and hobbyists use their spare time and money to build their own cars.
A huge amount of car body work will be required on restorations as all of the components will be required to be removed and fixed back into place during different stages of the work.
Dent repair is one of the biggest parts of body work repair and is essentially the same as panel beating or panel bashing which is covered at the top of this guide.
SMART repair (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is a type of service offered by mechanics which is includes the use of specialised tools, paints and materials to provide your car with a good as new finish on an area which may be damaged.
Before the technology existed, if a panel was damaged, the entire piece would have to be replaced meaning more money and time would have to be spent on car maintenance.
The advances in technology mean that the speed and effectiveness of body work repair is significantly improved.
According to YouGov research, 65% of cars in the UK are carrying damage which could easily be repaired using SMART repair.
