SMART Paint Repair

What is S.M.A.R.T.? (Small To Medium Area Repair Technique)




In the last 10 years or so the SMART repair industry has taken off. SMART stands for Small and Medium Area Repair Technique. It has reduced the need to always visit a traditional bodyshop for light repairs. Some SMART repairs can be undertaken at a bodyshop, whereas others are done by specialist SMART repairers. SMART repairs can be used for range of problems including small dents, bumper scuffs, and panel scratches.

Why choose SMART repairs?

The benefits of SMART repairs are that they are usually cheaper than going to a bodyshop, because only a small area has to be repaired. Don’t be put off by the low price – it shouldn’t mean you get a low quality job; SMART repairs are just cheaper to carry out. There’s no need to pay for the whole side of your car’s body panels to be painted because of a dent in your door or a scratched bumper.

They are also usually quick, SMART repairs are always completed on the same or next day as they’re started.Another major benefit of SMART repairs is that due to the lower cost you  might choose not to make a claim through your insurance. This means that  you will not lose your No Claim Discount.

One time that you could make use of SMART repairs is when you’re selling your car. You might be able to live with a scuff or two but it can harm the resale value of your car. If a potential buyer spots dents or chips in your paint it might put them off.
