We will do a superior job in getting your vehicle back to its optimal condition. With our panel beating and spray painting work, once the job is finished you will not be able to tell your vehicle was ever damaged.

What parts do you use during repairs?

There are two kinds of parts we can use to repair your vehicle. They are either OEM parts, which are original manufacturer parts. Or we use aftermarket parts, which are manufactured by third parties. We always try to use OEM parts but you can rest assured that any aftermarket parts are the best quality available in the country.

Will your spray painting match the original colour?

Yes, our spray painting is done with exceptional equipment, machinery and techniques. There will be no way of telling that a section of your vehicle was spray painted due to body damage, scratch marks or the paint peeling off.
