This car came to us with significant damage to the driver’s side of the vehicle, not only was there damage to the driver’s door but also to the inside and underside of the door frame.

As well as this car’s door and the frame having a dent in, it was also severely scratched, scuffed and buckled.

This vehicle had a full inspection by to one of our estimators, and an estimate was given to the customer, as well as being sent over to the client’s insurance company for authorisation.

Once we were given the go-ahead by the owner’s insurance company, the car was processed ready for repairs to commence, and the repair process began.

We stripped the car ready for the panel department. The car required the use of our jig so that we could correct the alignment of this vehicle.

A new door had been sourced, and a repair to the rear door completed, with all repair to the body of the car, complete it was time for our paint department to prepare the vehicle for the spray booth. The car panels were colour matched and sprayed and left to dry in the oven, once dried the cars paintwork was polished as well as the inside having a valet.

It is possible to complete these types of panel repair with or without involving your insurance company; we offer a free estimating service  to book your car in please give us a call on 01268 816045
