Vandal Scratch Repair in Ware Hertfordshire

This customer had a vandal scratch on the rear of his BMW. He had parked his car in a supermarket and on his return found that someone had keyed a deep gouge in the rear wing just above the wheel arch area. He had taken the car to an Accident Repair centre that wanted to spray the entire side of the car in order to blend in the paint. As you can imagine the cost for such a job was way over £750 and he would have had to lose the use of his car for at least a week. We quoted nearly 75% less and the job was completed within 2 hours outside the customer’s house. So no need to paint the entire side of the car we just painted the area where the Vandal Scratch was on.

Vandal Scratch in Stoke Newington

This poor customer took his newly purchase BMW 1 Series to Bournemouth for the weekend with his family. What he was expecting was a couple of nice days in the sun, not a 4-foot vandal scratch down the side of his car. The damage starts on the front wing and continues to the edge of the front door. The damage is difficult enough to fix let alone the colour of the car which is a bit of a nightmare to blend in. The customer was understandably worried about the outcome of the job. Once we finished he was as pleased as punch, see for your self.

Car Scratch Repair Bishops Stortford

The scratch on this VW pickup is on the rear tail gate near the off side end. The damage was caused by bins that had blown over during bad weather conditions. As you can see the scratch is down to the primer  and had to be painted. The rear of this vehicle is quite large with no real curves or corners to blow the pant around. So we had to spray a larger area to blend in the colour. As you can see the results are amazing.

Dean did a de-rusting job on my beloved 14 year-old Peugeot 406 a few weeks ago. Excellent job, done with real care and attention and far more perfection on the tricky paint-matching job on the bonnet than I was looking for. All this, and a bubbly, warm character too. Heartily recommended. Paul Tilson
