Localised techniques.

A traditional bodyshop will spray out the whole of the side of the car due to paint matching problems. Our system allows blending in the door, wing or bumper thats damaged saving considerable on time and cost. Our repairs are usually completed within a few hours - certainly within the day - weather permitting. Please bare in mind that from the beginning of November through to February / March weather conditions limit the type of work that can be carried out.

Check engine light and electrical problems.

We offer a fixed call out and diagnosis fee. NO DIAGNOSIS - NO FEE.

Did you know that many costly replacements of components ie: vehicle computer (ECM) or (PCM) is due to a wiring issue ie: bad earth, short circuit, incorrectly wired replacement, faulty component especially OEM products or broken connector ??

Buying or selling a used vehicle - take me along and I can check the vehicle for fault codes so you know what your buying or selling. Many fault codes do not always put the engine check light on or sometimes they have been cleared only to return again at later time. Fixed price could save you a lot of money !!

Where the fault maybe a broken wire or relatively easy to fix, we will endeavour to do so after quoting for the repair.

If parts are required we will offer to aquire the parts, at cost to you, and return as agreed to complete the repair.

Should the repair be outside our scope due to equipment required we would recommend consulting a dealer.

Currently we are unable to diagnose faults on some hybrid cars or EV Electric battery powered vehicles.
