  3. Priming: Next, we apply primer and meticulously smooth it off before allowing it to dry.
  4. Spray Booth: The repair then moves to our smart repair spray booth, where we apply the base coat colour followed by a lacquer clear coat for added protection.

Factors that affect the cost of car body repair

When it comes to bodywork repair, there’s no one-size-fits-all cost. Several factors come into play when calculating the expenses. Let’s explore the most important factors:

  1. Severity of Damage: Naturally, repairing minor scratches costs less than addressing severe dents.
  2. Location of Damage: Where the damage is located on your vehicle can significantly impact the repair cost.
  3. Make and Model of Car: The make and model of your car can influence repair costs, especially if specialised parts or labour are required.
  4. Age of the Car: The age of your vehicle can affect repair costs due to factors such as parts availability and condition.
  5. Labour Costs: Labour expenses vary depending on factors like the complexity of the repair and the expertise of the technicians.
  6. Insurance Coverage: If your repair is covered by insurance, the overall cost may be higher due to specific requirements for restoration.

Understanding these factors is essential for accurately estimating the cost of your bodywork repairs.
