Do I Need a Specialist Mechanic to Repair My Car’s Bodywork?

When the bodywork of your car is damaged, it’s best to hire a specialist to undertake the repair of any scratches, bumps or dents. As well as ensuring that everything from easing-out dents to refinishing bodywork paint goes according to plan, a specialist bodywork mechanic can keep costs down for you and make sure your car looks its very best by the end of the job.

While it might be tempting to leave a dent or scratch in your car’s bodywork and ignore it, wear and tear over time can exacerbate this damage if it’s left untreated. A little scratch can become a bigger scratch if it’s left without a bodywork refinish

What Does a Car Bodywork Repair Specialist Do?

A car bodywork repair me specialist is an automotive mechanic who has trained in the cosmetic restoration and repainting of bodywork. They commonly handle accident and scratch repair, as well as paint spraying to refresh a car’s exterior. Some of the duties they perform include:

  • Smoothing out dents: Dents in the bodywork of your car can cause it to crumple. Specialist repair involves smoothing out those bumps and dents by carefully manipulating the sheet metal. If it is not possible to smooth out the dents completely, a specialist might replace a panel of your car’s bodywork to ensure it’s looking as good as new.
  • Refinishing paintwork: Scratches and nicks can really affect the look of your car and impact your ability to sell it on when you want to. Specialist bodywork repair involves carefully matching the exact shade of paint used on your car’s exterior, and then applying a new coat so that any damage is covered, leaving your car looking its best.
