We use a computerised paint mixing system guaranteeing perfect colour. The data measured on the body of the vehicle is gathered, then transferred to special 'colour search software' called Standowin, which then searches the massive database for the correct mixing formula. Regular updates from both the car manufacturers and paint providers, is constantly downloaded, keeping the exact specs up to date.

However, the final say comes down to our resident auto spray-paint specialist Matthew, who does not want to rely on technology alone. As a result, the final match is tested on spray cards, and meticulously scrutinised by eye to ensure the perfect match for you car.

In addition to our crash repairs services, we also offer mechanical services and NCT / CVRT mechanical and bodywork repairs.

Dont forget, we have secure off road parking and all vehicles receive a complimentary valet as standard.
