Car Body Damage in Edinburgh
Interestingly, statistics from GOVUK show that Edinburgh’s trunk roads and motorways grew by 30% between 1996 and 2004, but then fell back by 1.5% over the period 2004 to 2006. However, travelling by car is still the most predominant way for Edinburgh residents to travel to work and other purposes.
As Edinburgh is a city, it has a very high amount of traffic and congestion. Far more people in Edinburgh now have access to a car than previous decades, and they are also using their cars more frequently. This has also led to increased demands for parking in both residential and commercial areas.
Direct line group have named Edinburgh the 8th worst city in the UK for parking, where residents, on average, spend 27 minutes per week looking for a parking space. Around a third (31%) of you has also received a parking ticket at least once in the last 5 years and on average, Edinburgh residents have received 2.4 parking prangs in the last 5 years.
Due to the increasing size of cars nowadays and ever smaller parking spaces, parking prangs are costing UK residents more than £1.4 billion per year, according to Yahoo Finance UK! RAC Insurance research has found that a whopping two-thirds of British motorists have returned to their vehicle to find that their car was damaged in a car park, with an average bill of £2,050!

Testimonials from ChipsAway Edinburgh
“I just want to say what a painless experience it has been to have our car repaired by ChipsAway Edinburgh. The local car body repair specialist popped round punctually to give us the quote, explaining in as much detail as we needed how the repair was to take place. Although he gave us the quote there and then there was no pressure, and when we went ahead we quickly firmed up on a convenient time. The job its-self was carried out just as he had planned, and I must say we are very happy with the result – the specialist was at pains to make sure we got good value for money. I'm very happy to recommend him to our friends!" - Mr Hodgkinson
“The bad news is that I hit my garage door closing mechanism whilst reversing, leaving a nasty dent and some scratched on the wheel arch and bumper of a less than 12 months old Audi A4. The good news is that I sought help via your website from ChipsAway. My on-line enquiry prompted an immediate phone-call from the local specialist in Edinburgh who subsequently visited in person that same afternoon to assess the damage and to provide a firm quote. The work itself was carried out later the same week on my drive and at a time of my choosing. I am delighted with the finished result - the car really does look as good as new - and also with the price and the convenience of the service. I found the car body repair specialist to be extremely courteous and pleasant as well as highly professional. I will have no hesitation in using him again should the need arise (although I rather hope it doesn’t!), and I am very happy to recommend him unreservedly.” - Mike Turner
