When getting quotes, don’t always go for the cheapest quote; find a balance between good reviews and pricing. You know the saying – ‘you get what you pay for’. Most companies offering very cheap quotes won’t do a good job and you’ll find the paint on your car starting to peel away after 6 months.

Scratch Removal repair costsCar Scratch Repair Costs

It’s not just cosmetics; scratches lead to rust and rust destroys your car. There’s good news! Scratches are typically quick and easy to fix – and won’t cost you a fortune, either.

Clear-Coat Scratches

If the scratch is only in the  clear-coat and doesn’t take any of the paint off, it’s a clear-coat scratch. These scratches are the easiest and cheapest to repair. Typical costs are £35 – £60 per panel and the time is 30 to 60 minutes per panel.

Paint Scratches and Scuffs

Car keying repair costs

Deeper than just the clear coat, these scratches take some paint with them. No matter the size of the scratch or scuff, once the paint is off the entire layer needs to be repainted. That typically takes the cost to anywhere between £120 and £180 and the time to 2 to 3 hours.

Deep Paint Scratches

Once you see metal or plastic, it’s no longer just a scratch. It’s deep. While these are the most expensive to repair, they are also the most important to repair. Once the base is exposed, it will rapidly corrode or rust. Typical repairs cost between £180 and £240 with time of 3 to 5 hours.

Car Bumper Repair Costs

Bumpers aren’t there just to absorb damage. Built into bumpers on today’s automobiles are a variety of sensors and safety features. From lights to reversing sensors, everything needs to be taken into consideration when determining prices. Because of the complex features behind bumpers, the amount of time taken to remove them varies. The typical hourly labour rate for bumper removal is £60 per hour.

Of course, if we’re taking the bumper off, it’s probably because it needs to be fixed. Pricing varies depending on the repairs needed. From cracks to dents, we’ve got you covered. After the repairs are made, the bumper typically needs to be sanded, cleaned, and painted. Typically, this takes three to four hours, with an hourly rate of £60. Costs of miscellaneous materials used in the repairs, from sandpaper to the paint itself, need to be allotted for as well when determining the overall cost.

If the bumper is damaged beyond repair, the replacement generally costs between £300 and £700 (part only). However, if components behind the bumper are damaged and need to be replaced, this will raise the cost further. Potential costs range from £600 to £1,320 and the time is 2 to 3 days.

Car Dent Repair Costs

The cost of dent repairs varies depending on the location of the dent and its size. Some areas on the vehicle are easier to repair than others. Because of this, sometimes the cost of repairing a small dent in a difficult position can be more expensive than the cost of repairing a large dent in an easily repairable position. Paint-less dent removal starts at £90 per dent and time of 1 hour, but goes up depending on the size and position of the dent/s.

For dents that can’t be repaired via paint-less dent removal, you’d be looking £280 to £450 per panel. Time, 3 to 7 hours.

Alloy Wheel Repair CostsCar Alloy Wheel Repair Costs

Alloy wheel repair costs vary depending on a variety of factors. For painted wheels, if the wheel has a light scratch around the edge, repairs cost between £120 to £200 per wheel. If the wheel is damaged along the face, the typical repair cost is £120 per wheel.

Machined wheel repairs typically cost £160 per alloy wheel.

A set of 4 diamond cut alloy wheels fully repaired cost £500 and require 3 to 4 days.

Powder coating 1 alloy wheel typically costs £150.

A set of 4 powder coated alloy wheels cost £400 and require 2 to 3 days.
