Have you recently found a dent in your car’s bodywork? Unfortunately, this is a regular occurrence. No matter where you drive, there’s always a risk of suffering a minor dent. The likelihood only increases if you live and work in an urban area. Be it a stray shopping trolley, a car park mishap, stone impact, a slow-speed prang or vandalism, your vehicle can suffer superficial damage whether you’re behind the wheel or not. At R&P Accident Repair Centre, we complete dent repairs using time-served and innovative methods.
Based in Lingfield, a short drive from East Grinstead, our company provides accident repairs for motorists in Crawley, Horley, Redhill, Oxted, Caterham and the surrounding areas. With more than 180 years of shared experience, our team removes dents of any type and size.
If you notice minor bodywork damage, you must act swiftly to stop it from worsening. For example, scratches and dents often let water penetrate into areas it shouldn’t be. If left unchecked, this can turn simple, affordable dent repairs into something much larger and more expensive.
Aside from this, dents and scratches are undeniably ugly and drive down your vehicle’s value. If your business has one or more damaged vehicles on local roads, this creates a bad first impression.
R&P Accident Repair Centre provides a full range of services for accident repairs. We have the know-how to repair all car body dents, from small PDR (paintless dent repair) work to the removal of large indentations and complete panel replacement.
To discuss your own needs in Crawley, East Grinstead, Horley or the neighbouring areas, call us on 01342 832 511.
If your vehicle has a shallow dent that hasn’t ruined the paintwork, paintless repairs provide the ideal solution. During this process, our technicians massage and manipulate your dented panel from the inside. This method restores the panel’s original shape without damaging or cracking the manufacturer’s paintwork.
There’s no need for fillers or respraying. There’s no chance of runs in the paint or mismatched colours. Our paintless accident repairs result in permanent, flawless and environmentally friendly finishes.
Paintless dent repairs provide motorists in and around Crawley, East Grinstead and Horley with several benefits.
If we cannot access your dent from behind, or the impact has caused the paint to crack, we advise SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repairs instead. This approach is perfect for cosmetic and superficial damage.
During SMART services, our team uses specialist tools, materials and paint on localised areas of damage. This means we don’t need to remove or repaint the entire panel.
You can rest assured, we use the latest in colour-matching technology to ensure a seamless blend with any shade and finish. Starting with the manufacturer’s code, we identify the specific tone of your vehicle’s paint. From here, we can replicate the colour using a range of tints.
SMART services are ideal for accident repairs such as:
When compared with traditional accident repairs, SMART services use less materials and require less labour. This makes them an affordable way for motorists in local areas like Crawley, East Grinstead and Horley to undertake dent repairs.
This is particularly beneficial if you plan to pay for your repair work out of your own pocket.
