When driven around the streets of Orpington and Kent, vehicles can easily suffer from superficial damage to the bodywork which requires car scratch repair or bumper repair work to prevent long-term problems. When using your vehicle daily for travelling to work, cars may need alloy wheel repair when coming into regular contact with dilapidated road surfaces. Whether you require bumper scuff repair or alloy wheel refurbishment for kerbing or wear and tear which is out of your control, our technicians are skilled at fixing common issues.
Top 5 Car Issues Requiring Repair
1. FRONT BUMPER DAMAGE
One third of accidental damage experienced by Orpington motorists is from the front bumper because of the amount of impact it absorbs. Aside from head-on collisions, bumper repair is often needed for general wear and tear on the road. This can be due to obstacles, such as high kerbs, low walls and even ice banks, which can result in plastic or fiberglass covers requiring car scratch repair or bumper scuff repair from abrasions.
As the bumper is intended to protect the front vehicle components from serious damage, we recommend that bumper repair work is completed as soon as possible. This will prevent minor cosmetic damage from becoming costly if left unattended.
2. BROKEN HEADLIGHTS
Following bumper repair and bumper scuff repair, vehicle headlights are prone to damage. While the bumper serves to prevent serious damage to the lights, the rigid plastic material that encases them can require car scratch repair or replacements if cracked.
3. ALLOY WHEEL REPAIR
Orpington motorists will find that their wheels are susceptible to damage too. Wheels account for up to 15% of damage from collisions. This includes alloy wheel repair and alloy wheel refurbishment services. In addition to collisions, wear from debris on the road can cause chips, scratches and scuffs, such as loose stones and nails, plus contact with kerbs and uneven road surfaces. Alloy wheel repairs are typically limited to one wheel so the cost of alloy wheel refurbishments is extremely affordable.
4. PAINT SCRATCHES
Car scratch repair for your paintwork can be due to faultless accidents when vehicles are unattended in car parks or when parked outside your home in Orpington. These can also be due to carelessness when coming into minor contact with obstacles on your journey. Alloy wheel refurbishments suffer from scratches to the paint and alloy surfaces too.
The technicians at Smart Solutions can undertake a host of car scratch repairs at your Orpington location with our mobile services. S.M.A.R.T tools will restore small damaged areas that have been filled and coated with colour-matching technology for the perfect finish. To avoid wind-blown paint or rust from occurring, we recommend that any car scratch repair work, including alloy wheel repair, is carried out immediately.
5. BODYWORK DENTS
Like car scratch repair and bumper repair, dents can be resolved with S.M.A.R.T tools. Dents are commonly caused by loose road surface aggregates and pieces of debris that hit bumpers, wheels and the bodywork of your vehicle during motion. We can help Orpington clients with dents by smoothening the surface and applying premium-quality paint, which covers any visible damage to the shape and paintwork too.
