Craig was really helpful and went far and beyond the call of duty. The clutch went on mi 2006 mini on the Thursday night and he had quoted on Thursday night and collected the car on Friday morning and returned by Saturday Morning. Really impressed with the service and speed of the work. Price was £200 cheaper than my usual garage!
Excellent service. Price quoted was the price I paid. No hidden extras once the car was finished. I would recommend this garage.
Thus price was for mot aircon regas and service a tyre front bearings and bulbs and wiper blades I got a fast and spwwst service kept me up to date with calling me will definitely use this company in the future all staff I spoke to were polite
Very good service provided, more expensive due to brake pads, brake rotors and a rear exhaust box that had to be replaced, all of which I was aware would need replacing during the service.
24/7 Auto Repairs were the quickest to quote the job and the cheapest. To my surprise, they were able to book my daughter's car in for a clutch replacement early the next week and told me it would be ready the same day. I delivered the car to them the previous day so they had the car ready for the morning. By lunchtime on the booked day they had rang me to tell me all was done and the car was ready for collection. When I arrived to pick the car up, I was presented with the bill, exactly the price stated, no extras. Very pleased, great work, fast service, great value. I would defintely recommend them.
The garage was excellent when it came to communication. I did not end up getting this job done as the car was scrapped.
Great friendly garage. We weren't sure what the actual problem was, but wanted it checking. They offered a courtesy car for the afternoon, which was great as we would have been stuck. They couldn't find a problem with the car, but topped the oil up which seemed to help.
A good job done without any problems. The receptionist is very bubbly and great for the company. I would use them again.
Very courteous very efficient only one thing that stopped me giving it 5* was there was one advisory which if I had been contacted before collection they could've done, I now have to book my car back in to get it done.
Good garage, straight and down to earth guys. Good level of customer service - my only comment would be that they left calling to advise the status of the car until the last minute (presumably too busy fixing it and getting on with the work). Otherwise very happy and will come back again.
Rung me a few times to let me know what needs doing. Great help
Very professional and polite service
Very professional and friendly service; good prices; I got a text when the vehicle was ready - very handy. Thorough service and no nasty surprises. Appointment booked quickly, would recommend!
Excellent service and work completed. Kept me up to date on work being done and car was ready as agreed. Would recommend and definitely use again. Many thanks.
Very quick response and swiftly fixed the problem.
Very quick response. Got the car in as soon as possible. Clear with pricing etc. and very helpful over the phone. Took the car in and job was done quicker than expected. Very efficient and no messing about. I will be using them again in the future. Thank you
The work was reasonably priced and Dave only did the work that was necessary after fully discussing with me first. I will be recommending this garage to friends.
Friendly and helpful. Dave found and fixed the problem the same morning. I am very happy.
They did a great job! Very professional and only took a couples of hrs so I could have my car back later in the day! I will definitely recommend this garage!
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.
