Pleased with the service. Will recommend. Turned up on time. Completed the job with no fuss
i have to say good job on the team that repaired rust of my car, very busy team but im very impressed with there job id recommend anybody to these guys trustworthy
What lovely boys! Did a great job!
Dave and Steve are professional, efficient and knowledgable ! They worked days and nights (literally !) to fix my car. This is probably the best service in the area. My door was badly damaged (dented and deeply scratched) and they were able to fix this in less than 6 days ! I will definitely be using them in the future.
Dave and Steve replaced both front dampers and fixed the flapping belly pan, throughout the whole process both where a pleasure to deal with and went above and beyond with the courtesy car and trying to get the warranty company to cover the cost of the repairs. I will definitely have any further repairs done by then and would highly recommend them, their level of service is second to none!
Really good price and fitted efficiently. Nice guys at the garage too obviously know their stuff and honest with you.
Very happy with the work carried out, excellent customer service and advise, would highly recommend. Not many garages would do the work needed done but this one did at an affordable price
The BEST garage I've ever been to, hands down. My brake pads and plates took longer than expected because of some other problems they found. It took them 3 hours to sort out but they didn't charge me extra and they did an amazing job. Car is as good as new! Would recommend every time and will definitely be using again.
Really friendly and professional. Good value for money and I will definitely be a returning customer!
Had a full service as well very good service
VRS did a fantastic job within 24hrs and at a reasonable price
VW T5 clutch and dmf replaced excellent service from these guys very friendly and helpful would definitely recommend this garage
Very professional and friendly staff. The guys did a fantastic job. Very good price. I'm very happy. Highly recommend.
Great garage with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fixed my seat belt in a jiffy. Recommended if you want things repaired and not just replaced.
Fantastic garage! People were friendly and most helpful, were able to accommodate my request of fitting genuine Mercedes parts at short notice, very reasonably priced. Will be going back for further work and couldn't recommended them enough!
Honest service that is reasonably priced. Would recommend and will use again. Also fixed a pre existing problem for a good price.
Got the part on short notice and fixed the problem. Very good service and good value for money.
Was very pleased that they check my car for free. Very professional and quote was reasonable for the problem
Amazing service from AVS! Got me booked in very quickly for a suspected rear bearing replacement. I dropped my car off and they gave me a lift back home. While at work, they sent me a video of a leak they had found in one of my rear brake cylinders, with a quote to fix that as well. Both rear bearings were replaced and the leaking cylinder. Mechanic then picked me up from work in my car and drove me back to the garage to pay and pick up. Very impressed, I will be using them again soon to fit my new clutch as well. Thanks AVS!
Picked car up and offered to bring it back free of charge. Quick completion of work done and kept informed. Will definitely use again.
I cannot say enough good things about the service received. Local garages wanted £30 to transport my car to their garage but AVS collected it free of charge and were happy to return it after the work was completed. Communication was excellent throughout especially when informing me that there was a problem with the flywheel casing and nothing was too much trouble. I have no hesitation in recommending and will be using them for all my car requirements in future.
He diagnosed the problem with no fuss. Super job!
A1 service.....would highly recommend.......no job is a problem
Good mechcanic. Needed job doing at short notice and was fitted in nice and fast.
Mr Singh originally quoted for a head gasket replacement (self diagnosed with the help of the Internet). Upon thorough investigation Mr Singh believed that the fault lay elsewhere and regarded replacing the gasket as an unnecessary expense. The fault has now been fixed and, as a consequence of Mr Siingh's diligence and honesty, saved me over £800 from the original quote.
Professional, fast and very competitive service. Replaced my alternator in no 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.
The specific jobs included in this type of body work are;
