Using the latest refinishing technology and employing qualified personnel, we are able to repair most accident damaged vehicles.

What we do:

Specialising in automotive refinishing and spray painting, the core function of our business is the restoration of accident damaged vehicles to pre-accident condition.

How we do it:

Most vehicles damaged in an accident follow a repair process similar to the following: 

  • All damaged and undamaged components necessary to effect the repair are removed
  • Alignment work if required. Chief precision straightening and laser assisted targeting equipment is used to ensure that perfect factory specified measurements of the vehicle are achieved
  • The removal and replacement of damaged body panels is done once the vehicle is aligned to ensure the precise alignment of new panels
  • Painting - vehicles are painted using the latest waterborne paint technology available from Glasurit. This ensures accurate colour matching and factory finish paintwork when the vehicle is painted
  • The removed damaged components are replaced with original OEM components* as well as other undamaged parts removed during earlier stages
  • A final polishing and cleaning stage finishes the process with show room condition results 

*The use of OEM components is subject to insurance companies’ authority.

Warranties and Guarantees:

  • We offer a Glasurit Lifetime Warranty on all Paintwork done. This covers paint defects such as pealing, cracking or fading
  • Our Workmanship carries a 3 year warranty
