Excellent services. In constant contact with Patrick was collected and return as stated. Price quoted was the final price. Patrick also touched up a couple of chips on the door edge and a smaller scrap on the back bumper ( within the quoted price). Totally satisfied with the finish and the expertise of the company. Would totally recommend them.
Great garage! Good guys who are professional and efficient. Will definitely return and recommend to everyone.
Very competitive price, handy location for me. Patrick is very nice fella, very helpful, sourced good quality (Bosch/Brembo) discs and pads. Job was completed speedily. Would whole heartedly recommend ACS. Came across this site and ACS only via google search. Very glad I did. Would use again next time I need garage.
Superb experience: very helpful, friendly, fast service and good price fixing a wing mirror. Highly recommended.
Very helpful staff
Very well run and trustworthy garage you have no worries with being ripped off one of the best garages IV used will be back again.
Yes they are honest and they offer an excellent service
Convenient service, issue discovered and fixed quickly. Would recommend to a friend.
Exactly as quoted, quick and efficient and very good customer service. Would highly recommend this garage.
Excellent service, no waiting at all, job done on time. I will come back.
The price was more because they discovered that the starter motor was faulty. They did a very good job and kept me informed about progress.
The price was higher than the initial quote as I requested extra work on the air conditioning system. Work was finished on time and everything is working fine.
Amazing customer service and workmanship.
Booked my son's car for a full service with this garage, good job again guys Keep up the good work Thanks again Mike the taxi
Hi just a review of how well this garage did, I'm a taxi of the local area and need to be on the road, I booked it in the morning and in the afternoon all was done. Well impressed with price and service, needed a new sump plug as old one was worn they changed it and never charged me. I will recommend them to all my family and friends. THANKS GUYS See you in 30.000
Great service. Fast and friendly.
A fantastic service, excellent results would recommend this garage. The hubs look new ! I bow to those who can avoid wheel hub damage after 3 years!!!
Excellent service. Was prompt at collecting the car when they said they would. Also called me to inform me of advisories. Was also able to pay by card using the portable card reader. Very polite and good mannered
Exceeded expectations. Honest and authentic specialist mechanic. Customer service 9/10/
Great service and great price!
Very friendly, efficient and explained all the extra costs
Really good, I'm really happy!
Mike was polite very customer focused and has a lot of pride in his work and I would recommend Sphinx vehicle repairs to everyone I’ll definitely be recommending them to my friends and family
The service was just as advertised. A price including car pickup cost was agreed over the phone. Mike picked the car up from the house on the Thursday night, leaving his car, as agreed. He performed the MOT on Friday morning and called me to discuss the advisory points. He dropped the car off on Friday afternoon. The one improvement I would recommend is that the communication could be better between the job being accepted and the appointment date to give the customer peace of mind that they haven't been forgotten. That said, this appointment went well and I would definitely recommend and use his services again in future.
Great service, very knowledgeable personel. Would definitely go back if needed. Thank you Mike
Michael was brillant quick to the point and easy to understand. Highly recommended and will be using him for life
very helpful and poilte gentleman
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.
