Highly professional, arrived within an hour and had the car running beautifully the same day. Explained everything in full detail, showed me all parts old and new, couldn't be grateful enough. Thank you Adam, you went above and beyond, I will definitely be in touch in the future should we need it.
Good bloke quick and efficient
Thanks to the lads who done the work on the cam belt and got it spot on.spotless and clean, very friendly staff thanks again will come here again quality work well done
Excellent service. Collected and returned my car - very convenient. Thankyou!
Very quick service.
The service was efficient with the car collected and returned on time. The dent to the bumper was removed effectively. We were disappointed with the colour match as there was a slight difference in shade. We queried this and were advised that the colour on the car had probably changed due to exposure to sunlight.
Amazing service. My car was picked up and towed from my house, and had the clutch replaced for the price quoted with no extras. Will definitely use again.
Good price n work which he did was good.
Adam, was prompt and efficient. Excellent service
100% trust Adam very honest and knows his stuff, polite good prices really happy with his work.
as very happy with job
very happy with service provided, although brought wrong part to carry out job, but did not charge any extra for having to go back to supplier and replace part so would recommend this mechanic.
It looks like a run down arch garage. The garage is dark and looks offputting but dont be larmed. Sam has the correct tools for the jobs which is rather surprising for a small garage. Having the correct tools means you wont end up with a botch job. Sam answers his phone promptly. Is polite and informative. Car was seen to without delay. His prices are for labour only as I was mistaken thinking its parts and labour. Did not notice any refreshment machines but who cares. Im happy with a quality job and save a few quid in the process. Thank you
Great guys, speedy service
Good feedback on the process
Great work, my car was ready before the agreed date! I'll be back :)
Great service, fixed the car in a timely manner and were very professional, would recommend
Small garage... first look confused me... but mechanic deserve to be famous. Knowledge, experience, more than professional. Great skills and incredible art of work Definitely Recommend!!!!
The best garage for custom,prices and service in London. Absolutely fantastic service.
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.
