ChipsAway Scratch Repair Process
Since each scratch is so different and paint types vary across every car make and model, we are conscious that every repair is conducted with a precision based process. After viewing the damaged area we can use our SMART – small to medium area repair technology – to repair small areas of the cars bodywork without impacting the rest of the vehicle.
We pair this technique with our professional colour matching function which is another key element in our repair process. By matching the paint with the manufacturer’s original code specification, we only need to repair the damaged section rather than painting the whole panel. As a result, we are able to offer a cheaper and faster service than traditional car repairs.
Long-term Benefits of Scratch Repair Work
While you may want to avoid paying to repair the scratches to your cars paintwork, ignoring the damage can have consequences that will cost a lot more to rectify – if they can even be fixed. When paint is removed the metal underneath is left exposed to the elements leading to issues such as chronic and escalating rust.
However, if you act fast and see to the damage in a timely manner with the relevant repair work, you will be able to stop the rust in its tracks and reduce the risk of additional damage.
Repairing scratches will also help improve the resale value, as the next owner won’t have to worry about incurring a cost for repairing the scratches themselves.
How Do We Determine the Cost
Like all of our repair work, our experienced technicians work on a car by car basis to ensure the cost reflects the size of the damage, rather than using a one size fits all approach. Therefore the cost of the scratch repair is dependent on a number of elements like; size, depth, area (does the scratch span over one or two panels) and the coats of paint affected.
