What is a SMART Repair?

SMART (Small, Medium Area Repair Technology) is the process of repairing a car using specialised tools, paint and materials to give a ‘good as new’ finish on a localised damaged area – and not the whole panel like traditional body shops.

But technological advances mean that damaged areas can be repaired in a matter of hours instead of days which in turn dramatically reduces the cost customers can incur using traditional bodyshop repair processes.

Types of damage that are suitable for SMART repair include:
