Essex SMART Repairs and Car Body Damage in Essex

South Essex shows the most car crime, which is partly due to its close proximity to London, which AOL ranked the worst city to own a car in due to the high amount of car crime, vandalism and dangerous driving.

The worst affected regions for car body damage in Essex are West Thurrock and Romford, with a very large amount of car crimes being recorded in this area. Car crimes only starts to decrease until you reach the outer limits of the M25. However, there are still some significant areas of car crime away from the London area, such as Basildon and Southend-on-Sea. The safest districts in Essex are in the rural north, with Frinton-on-Sea and Saffron Walden recording the lowest amount of car crimes.

In terms of the most commonly targeted cars, Mercedes-Benz are most at risk, with 395 offences per 10,000 vehicles. This is closely followed by Fords, which claimed 252 offences per 10,000 vehicles.

  • Really great service, so pleased with the outcome! They worked late Friday night and early Saturday morning to get the car finished… Can't say enough good things about them, would definitely recommend to friends and family.

  • Brilliant service from Rob from the minute I contacted him for an estimate to when the job was finished. Rob gave me an estimate after working hours and was emailing me regarding my estimate up to 11pm that same day/night. It was because of this service I booked in with Rob. Arrived for 9am at the door and ready to start straight away. A brilliant job, the car is back to as good as new after an inconsiderate van driver hit my car and drove off. Although frustrating, it wasn't so bad after a good price and excellent service from a fantastic professional!

  • Highly recommend the Team at Chips Away Laindon/Basildon. My car was covered in dents, chips, scratches and scuffs. I collected my car today and it looks brand new. They kept me up to date throughout the job and provided such an efficient, friendly and impeccable service. I'll be sure to use them in the future and recommend to friends and family. Thanks again.
