Small scratches and dents can be really frustrating, but the cost of repair may be off-putting. SMART repairs allow small and medium areas of bodywork to be repaired much more cheaply. Find out how Liam Kenny can help with your minor dings and scrapes.
SMART stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology. Instead of replacing entire panels, SMART allows just the damaged area to be repaired.
SMART repairs are ideal for small scuffs, scratches and dents that have a cosmetic impact, but have not fundamentally damaged your vehicle. Because only the damaged area is repaired, the cost for parts and labour is much lower than with traditional repair techniques. This means that your vehicle can look as good as new for relatively low cost. Despite the lower cost, the finish of our SMART repairs is always of the highest standard.
SMART repairs are ideal for smaller areas of damage on bodywork and alloy wheels. These include:
SMART repairs are typically used for minor damage such as car park bumps and scrapes, kerbing, reversing into posts or vandalism such as keying. SMART repairs may also be appropriate for minor accident damage.
SMART repairs are an alternative to traditional panel beating and bodywork techniques. At Liam Kenny Motor Body Repairs we are experienced in both approaches, so we are happy to advise on which is the most appropriate for your vehicle.
Because the SMART approach aims to repair only the area directly affected it offers a range of benefits over traditional methods.
Rather than replacing complete panels, SMART repairs involve repairing, buffing or painting localised areas of bodywork. This means that the repair can be completed more quickly, the parts cost is also much lower. This makes SMART repairs a cost-effective way to get your car looking its best.
Because the cost of SMART repairs are often lower than insurance excesses, they are often paid for out of pocket rather than by making a claim. This means fewer claims on your policy, reducing your insurance costs in the longer term.
At Liam Kenny Motor Body Repairs, all of our technicians are fully trained and qualified in their fields. When you come to us for your SMART repairs you get the same level of expertise and the same high quality finish at a much lower cost.
