Are you finding it difficult to locate someone who can expertly repair car paint damage? Many of our competitors are really good at repairing tiny scratches or paint chips, but are not so good at repairing more significant damage. At Smart Finish, we spend most of our days repairing damage that is medium-sized. That is, we repair damage that’s about the size of the palm of your hand and no bigger than a piece of A4 paper. Here’s a brief guide to help you understand what we do.
Examples of Very Small Paint Damage – You Can Probably Fix these Yourself
Some customers call us requesting paint touch ups for the following items. And you’d be surprised how many of our competitors will charge full rates to come do this work for you. Instead, we advise you to tackle these small problems yourself. Rather than charge you to come fix them, we actually suggest you can fix them yourself with a small bottle of touchup paint applied with a toothpick or fine brush.
- Small stone chips (use touch up paint and a fine brush or toothpick)
- Light scratches (try use car polish and a microfibre cloth to manually buff the scratch away)
- Superficial scuffs (again, try the car polish)
Examples of Medium Cosmetic Damage – Call Us
In all of the following examples, if the damage size is smaller than a sheet of A4 paper, we can fix it.
- Cracked/Blistered Paint
- Heavy Scratches (the kind that break the car’s clear coat)
- Deep paint scuffs
- Damaged alloy wheels
- Cracked bumpers
In all of the above examples, we can use our SMART Repair process to strip back the damage and refinished the area, so it looks as good as new. Because we’re only doing cosmetic work (i.e. non-structural), we can do the work at the location of your choice. All we need is access to power and water.
Examples of Large Damage – Call a Body Shop
Although we receive many enquiries for repairs to accident damage – we can NOT fix this kind of damage. Anything that is structural MUST be repaired by a body shop or panel beater… preferably one approved by your insurance company. To say that again, if your car has been in an accident or collision, do not ask us for a quote.
- We don’t repair – accident damage
- We don’t repair – damage that is large scale
- We don’t repair – structural damage
