What Is A SMART Repair?
Getting a scratch or dent on your car can be incredibly demoralising. When your vehicle gets damaged, for whatever reason, getting it fixed is usually a top priority. Not only does getting your car fixed ensure that the aesthetic of your car remains intact, but in certain cases (like deep scratches on car bodies) it can also help safeguard your car against future damage by ensuring the damaged area doesn’t get any worse. This is where SMART repairs comes in.
SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) is the process of repairing a car using specialised tools, paint and materials on a localised damaged area. SMART repair avoids the need to remove or repaint the entire panel of the car. Instead, by seamlessly blending the latest paintwork technology and fantastic process, the SMART technique allows us to focus on the damaged area.
Before SMART repairs, cars would need to be taken into body repair shops, often for days or even weeks at a time, for relatively minor damage. Now, with the benefit of technological advances in car repair techniques, SMART repairs mean that damaged areas can be repaired in a matter of hours instead of days. This dramatically reduces the cost of the repair compared to using a traditional body shop service.
Why Choose A SMART Repair?
The main benefit of a SMART repair is they are usually cheaper than going to a traditional body shop. The reason for this is because where, with a traditional technique, the simplest of scratches or dents would require completing the repair on the entire panel, SMART repairs allow us to focus on one area. This means that only a small area of the vehicle needs to be repaired.
The lower cost of a SMART repair means that it often comes in at under the excess on your car insurance. This means you may not need to claim on your insurance, so you can keep your no claims discount. That being said, the lower price doesn’t mean lower quality! All Paintless Dent Repair NI's SMART repairs are carried out to a fantastic standard.
Did you know that recently YouGov researched car damage and showed that 65% of Britain’s cars are carrying some form of blemish that can be fixed by SMART repair?
Here, at Paintless Dent Repair NI, we offer a service that is based around your convenience. Not only do we have a specialist Car Care Centre on the edge of Belfast, but we also offer a free customer vehicle collection and delivery service to Belfast and Lisburn.
What Can A SMART Repair Fix?
From scratches on car bodies to dents on bumpers, SMART repair can be used on a wide variety of different types of damage. SMART repair allows us to focus, providing a fast and flawless repair with a fantastic finish. No matter where the damage is on the car, Paintless Dent Repair NI can fix scratches, dents, scuffed alloy wheels and damaged exterior trim.
How Do SMART Repairs Work?
The SMART repair will be dependent on the type of damage to your car. If your car has a small dent, that hasn’t damaged the paintwork, Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) could be a fantastic option. This is where the dent is gently removed without the use of paint or filler, massaging it back into place.
SMART repair specialists colour match the paint to your vehicle, and keep the repair area as small as possible so there is no need to respray large areas of the car, which can be very expensive. For example a customer recently told us he had been quoted £3500.00 to repair minor bodyline damage to the front passenger door. The body shop told him he needed a new door and the entire side of the car needed resprayed. Paintless Dent Repair NI repaired the damage for under £500.00. (Read what the customer had to say below).
Each car will have a code to let the specialist know which paint formula to mix. Paintless Dent Repair NI can also use a spectrophotometer, which will create a formula to match, even if the paint has faded. This allows for us to flawlessly blend the repair into the surrounding area, providing a brilliant finish.
