Mobile Bodywork Repairs Watford
Its one of the largest and most densely populated towns in the county of Hertfordshire. Watford is part of North London, Hertfordshire and borders onto Middlesex. It’s an area we service for mobile bodywork repairs and has one of our busiest customer bases.
We provide mobile car bodywork repairs in Watford to the trade and public on alternative days throughout the week, if you live in the Watford area you might have spotted our van a few times running from one job to the next. Within Watford there are 3 main areas where most of our work comes from, they are North Watford, Central Watford and Bushy.
The most difficult aspect for carrying out mobile repairs in Watford is the traffic. Most of our jobs in this area have to start early to take full advantage of the light that is available, especially in the winter months when it gets dark around 3pm so the earlier the start the better. We are based in Ware a small town north of Hertford just up the A10, when we commute for a 8am start in Watford we have two choices:
- Travel down the A10 on to the M25 then either south on the A1 or M1 depending on which area.
- Down the A10 and cut across Hertford on the A414 to the A1 or M1 depending on which area we need to get to.
Both of these routes listed above are constantly bogged down with traffic and frequently are magnets for road traffic accidents, which slows down the travel time immensely. I would usually start my commute at 7am to get to an 8am job in Watford, some times I get there 15 minutes early other times I’m 45 minutes late, its all in the lap of the road Gods I’m afraid.
I aim to be on time or slightly early for all my first jobs wherever they are but sometimes no matter how early I start my journey, there is no telling what my arrival time would be especially in areas like Watford. So instead of giving a precise arrival time in hard to reach areas I suggest to customers an estimate time like between 8am-9am. This way if the proverbial hits the fan on route I still have some contingency.
The most popular type of mobile bodywork repair we carry out in this area is a bumper scuff. It seems with the amount of traffic that’s on the roads, the tight car parking spaces and narrow streets it’s almost unavoidable. Most of the bumper scuffs we fix are from parking in the busy shopping centres that are dotted all around this area. Below is some example of bumper scratches we fixed for customers in Watford.
Another popular type of mobile bodywork repair in Watford we carry out is panel scratch. When I say panel scratches I mean intentional vandal scratches like when someone walks past a car and scratches a cars side panel on purpose. People are very territorial and when you get a stranger parking outside a house where someone else usually parks and there is nowhere else for them to go some people take great offence and feel the need to vent there anger by vandalising the car in question (like it’s the cars fault?). This unfortunately is the result of city life especially on streets, which are close to commuter hot spots such as train stations and bus terminals. In Watford there are 3 train stations and 2 main bus terminals all with residential parking within 200 meters. Parking at the train stations is extortionate so people are always trying to ram their cars in tight spots as close to the train stations as possible. By coincidence these areas are where I carry out most of the panel scratch repairs in the entire Watford area. Below are some examples of panel scratch repairs carried out in the Watford area.
