Car Damage Repair with John Bee

It’s incredibly frustrating when something minor happens to your vehicle but still leaves it damaged. A crack in the rear bumper from a misjudged parking attempt, a cracked wing mirror from a careless driver, or even scratches from a pedestrian who perhaps got too close. 

These problems are not worth notifying your insurance company over, as that will only push up your premiums for no reason, but they still need sorting. In such cases, you’ll need to find a car damage repair garage which you can trust to not cost you a fortune. 

Although they can be fixed relatively easily, they all need to be treated swiftly as ignoring them could result in further problems down the line. This is especially true of car scratch repair, necessary for the bodywork of the vehicle, especially if left to the elements. If untreated, rust can form in the scratch and eat into the metal, this can be expensive to repair as the rust spreads.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does It Cost To Repair A Damaged Front End?

We estimate that the average cost of front-end damage to a car can be between £200 and £12,000. You ought to consider the type of car and the extent of the damage when weighing up your options for repairing a damaged front end. Repairing a damaged front end can be very expensive, as it is the area where the engine and steering is housed. The bonnet of the car is also the hardest to buff, meaning that any work carried out will incur more labour costs. 

Is It Worth Repairing Minor Scratches to a Car? 

Yes, minor scratches can often let water into the metal panelwork of a car, causing rust. Any scratches to the body of a car can allow moisture to get into the metal and cause weak, rust spots on the panelling of the affected car. Having these spots repainted is often cheaper than having the panel replaced once it starts to rust.

How Do Professionals Fix Car Scratches?

Minor scratches can be buffed out by using a rubbing compound. However, If the scratch is too deep, we may need to buff the surface using a car polisher buffer. This removes the scratch and the surrounding area. We then repaint and rebuff the surface.
