"For over 30 years the Sandy Reid Elgin MOT Centre has been providing a valued service to customers.

It is a classic example of a good family business with Sandy who has been in the motor trade himself for over 40 years.

Sandy is now taking a back seat, leaving the day to day running of the business in the reliable hands of his son Douglas, who has worked alongside his father for years and is a fully qualified mechanic and MOT tester.

Daniel is also fully qualified mechanics with the business.

Our main priority is our customers, when we are working on their vehicle we always keep the customer informed as to the progress and price of the repairs.

We not only want the customers to come to us but would like them to return again and again.

We believe word of mouth is the best form of advertisement."

Panel Beating in Elgin

Below we continue with more in-depth FAQ’s which look at the specifics of panel bashing in Elgin. If you have a dent or have suffered damage to your car then you might think that you have to replace and entire panel such as a door. However with the right tools and expertise a mechanic can reshape metal and get it back to its original shape.

Panel beating is a traditional method of repairing metal panels with the use of such tools as specialised metal working hammers, ‘dollies’ (metal forming tools), tin snips and body files.

No longer quite as popular due to the modern manufacturing methods and materials, panel bashers are still highly skilled and important members of body repair shops. Whilst the main skill lays in the reshaping of the metal panels, they are just as adept at any other mechanical work on the car, often having to disassemble the car to remove panels.

Can I do the panel beating myself?

It is very unlikely that you’ll have the tools or the knowledge to successfully repair a panel using traditional panel beating techniques. Understanding the structure of the metal is just as important as knowing the technique; a bad repair could lead to stress fractures and further damage to the metal.

When do I know I need a panel beating?

Simply put, any damage to the metal panels on your car will need specialist repair with a panel beater. We wouldn’t recommend trying to repair any type of damage yourself.

How much will panel beating cost?

As with all repairs, the cost is entirely dependent on the level of damage and work involved to fix the damage. However, panel beating is a skilled job and needs a wide range of expensive equipment to finish a panel professionally.

Can mobile mechanics offer a panel beating service?

It is entirely possible to get a mobile panel beating service, although it would usually be called a mobile body repair. The level of damage to your car would dictate whether it is suitable for a mobile body repair or if it would need to go to a repair shop.

Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we've simplified the process.
