SMART is an acronym for ‘small to medium area repair technology’, but what really makes this repair method so smart?
You may know that smart repair technology is a modern high-tech method for repairing cosmetic damage to vehicles, including dents, scratches, and scuffs. You may even have heard that it can help maximise the value of a car. But how exactly does it work, and what are its benefits?
Not only do SMART repairs allow for the repair of damages without affecting or replacing entire parts of the car, but the technology often allows repairs to be carried out swiftly at any location. Because of the targeted, mobile nature of the service, it also saves customers a lot of money compared to most body shop repairs, often without affecting the vehicle warranty. Smart repairs further allow customers to avoid making claims on their insurance while still carrying out necessary repairs and maintenance.
Target a Specific Area
SMART repair methodology is ideal for external vehicle damage like dents, scratches, and scuffs, because it allows technicians to carry out work on localised areas. This means they can avoid repainting entire panels and replacing whole parts, while still restoring the car to its original factory finish. Specialists are able to do a lot without paint, but can also match paint colours perfectly
Many SMART Repair providers, including East Anglia Smart Repair, offer mobile repair services. This means specialists can be called out to any necessary location, and repair vehicles using a mobile workshop. This is ideal for auto retailers with short turnaround rates, as well as private customers with a busy schedule, who can have their cars repaired at home or at work.
Hours Instead of Days
The targeted approach of SMART car repairs doesn’t only mean that vehicle owners can avoid unnecessary large-scale work and driving out to an auto shop, but it also significantly reduces the time needed to refurbish a vehicle. The technology allows for small to medium repairs to be completed within a space of hours instead of days. Minor damages can disappear miraculously in less than an hour, given the proper tools and expertise.
Great Value for Money
You already know now that SMART car repairs significantly simplify the repair of dents, scratches, and scuffs. This means the method costs significantly less than traditional bodyshop repairs. But does a lower price mean lower quality? Not at all. Depending on the scale of the damage, many smart repairs will leave no trace of accidents or subsequent works. In other words, it will be like nothing ever happened. This also allows sellers to maximise the value of cosmetically damaged cars without investing more than it’s worth. The lower cost of SMART repair methods also means that many customers can avoid making a claim on their insurance, saving more money in the long-term by keeping their no claims discount.
In conclusion, smart repairs provide an excellent (and often more sensible) alternative to traditional auto-shop repairs, while ensuring vehicles are finished to original factory standard. Ultimately, they are convenient, accessible, and exceptionally effective. To find out more about various smart vehicle services or what we can do for you, get in touch with our friendly team today!
