ChipsAway SMART Dent Removal

ChipsAway specialists offer a mobile car dent removal and repair service designed around your convenience. By using SMART methods of repair, our specialists can complete a dent removal and respray in just a few hours. This service is also available at our ChipsAway Car Care Centres, depending on where you are based in the UK.

Here at ChipsAway, we are experts in SMART repair, standing for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology. Where traditional body shops may need to remove entire panels of the car in order to repair the dents, SMART repair techniques allow for us to focus our repair so that we only work on the smaller areas with the dent that need repairing. Since, unlike traditional body shops, we don’t need to remove the entire damaged panel in order to pull the dent to remove it, our SMART dent removal will often result in a faster and less expensive alternative to traditional body shops.

We use specialist dent repair tools in order to help return your car to pristine condition. These provide a smooth and consistent finish, massaging your car’s bodywork gently back into position. Our repair and removal tools provide a professional finish and solve the issues often faced by store-bought dent pullers.

Car dents are often accompanied by scratches, and it may be the case that, as well as a dent, there is a scratch that cuts through the paintwork. If the dent has scratched and damaged the paintwork, then a scratch repair may also be needed. In these cases and depending on the size of the dent, ChipsAway specialists first sand down the damage to remove any rough patches and then fill the dent to repair it. The whole damaged area is then rubbed down before being resprayed, lacquered and polished. By the time we have finished our minor dent repair and scratch removal process your car will look ‘as good as new’.

At ChipsAway we use the car colour codes and a piece of equipment called a spectrophotometer in order to guarantee that our dent and scratch repair matches perfectly with the surrounding area. This means that the repair is no longer visible once the dent has been removed and the scratch repaired. SMART repair ensures that your dents and scratches are removed in an efficient way each and every time

Minor Dent Repair and Dent Removal FAQ

Below we have listed a few of the most frequently asked questions that we get asked around minor car dent repair and removal. You can visit our full car dent FAQ here.

What Kinds of Minor Dents Can ChipsAway Repair?

Our ChipsAway specialists are able to repair and remove a wide variety of dents. Whether an unexpected bollard has impacted your door panel, or a surprisingly high kerb has dinged your bumper, our experts are able to return your car to fantastic condition.

How Long Will It Take to Remove a Dent From My Car?

How long a removal or repair can take depends on a couple of factors, how deep the dent is and if the paint surface is broken. If the dent is shallow and if it doesn’t break the surface of the paint then it can be completed faster than a deeper and more damaging dent. If the paintwork has been scratched or damaged then we may need to use our SMART scratch repair technique, and this can take slightly longer. Either way, ChipsAway SMART repairs tend to take no longer than a few hours to complete.

Can My Car Be Repaired at Home or at Work?

Yes. We have based our dent repair service around your convenience. The majority of our specialists are mobile and can come to you to repair a dent wherever you are. This means that they can fix your car’s dent or scratch whilst you’re at home, at work, or even on holiday. We also have over 40 car repair centres spread throughout the country meaning that, in locations where there isn’t a mobile service available, there is usually a car care centre nearby that can help you with your dent repair.

Can You Repair Dents in Leased Cars?

Yes, we can repair dents in leased cars. If you return your car at the end of the lease and there is a dent within the body then it is likely you will be charged a fee for the car being dented. That fee can be expensive and can cost more than simply getting the car repaired. We offer cost-effective dent repairs on leased cars that help you avoid any unexpected fees. You can find out more about our end-of-lease repairs here. 

Do DIY Dent Removal Kits Work to Remove Dents?

Some DIY or store-bought dent removal kits can work for reducing the impact of a dent on your car. That being said, DIY solutions may not be able to completely remove the dent from your car. With a DIY solution (such as a dent puller or PDR kit) it can be hard to produce the perfect finish and, if used incorrectly, it can cause more harm than good. This can leave damage that is more costly to remove in the long run.

Here at ChipsAway, we provide a reliable dent removal service with a lifetime guarantee. Our experts work hard to remove your dent and return your car to pristine condition – each and every time. You can find out more about our repair guarantee here.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Dent in The Car?

The cost of a minor dent repair is dependent on the size, location and extent of the dent. That being said, we aim to be as economical with our repairs as possible and SMART repairs are often cheaper than your insurance excess. This means you won’t need to make a claim in order to get a dent removed or repaired.

What Is a PDR or Paintless Dent Removal Kit?

A paintless dent removal kit or PDR kit is a set of tools that enable the user to remove dents from a vehicle’s bodywork. The kit typically contains:

  • Lever hooks
  • Several types of bars (flat nose, flat and rounded nose) at different angles
  • Window wedges
  • Plastic punches
  • Door jams

Using the items in this kit, with the proper instructions, will enable the user to repair car dents quickly and efficiently without damaging any of the original paintwork.

Can I Remove a Dent Myself?

You can attempt to remove dents in your car’s bodywork yourself and people have been known to use a varied combination of plungers, boiling water, hairdryers and compressed air to heat, pull, and pop dents out of the bodywork to remove them. You may find some of those techniques work on YouTube with people having made them work for dent repairs and removal, there is however no substitute for professional help.
