Why Do I Need a Paint Repair?

You want your car to look its best and be able to take pride in its appearance.

Scuffed paintwork ruins that.

Not only that, but damage from stone chips and acidic marks from bird droppings can cause the paint to rust and drastically age your car. In some cases, this can cause larger problems with your structural integrity and lead to more expensive repairs.

If you have any scratches, scuffs or chips, a paint repair will improve the appearance of your car and increase its resale value.


When Do I Need to Book a Car Paint Repair?

  • The paintwork is dull or peeling
  • You can see the sheet metal underneath
  • There is some other paint damage, such as a scratch, scuff or chip


If you're experiencing any of the above, we recommend booking your car in for a paint repair near you as soon as possible.


What Services Can a Car Paint Shop Provide?

A car paint shop can provide many services. Which one you need depends on the damage you have suffered.

When you book your paint repairs through BookMyGarage, we ask you to first select your car's damage in our tool. This ensures the price estimates you'll see in the comparison engine are accurate. The technician will also use this information and their findings from the inspection to conduct one of the following services:


Paint Local

A paint local is designed to improve the appearance of a specific section of your car. If you have suffered a nasty scratch or dent, the technician will complete the repair and then apply a paint local.

You always receive a high-quality finish in a colour that's an exact match to the rest of your vehicle.

SMART repairers can conduct these localised paint repairs.



For more extensive damage, a half-respray may be required. If you have had an accident or fitted replaced bodywork parts that don't match your vehicle, a half-respray can solve your problem.

Parts that can be resprayed include door sills, wheel arches, bumpers or other larger body panels.


Full Car Respray

A full car respray can help restore the condition of your car or give you the freedom to paint it whatever colour you choose. A technician will safely strip the car back to the metal shell and respray the entire bodywork in a colour of your choice. If your vehicle has any rust patches or corrosion, they will repair this first.

A full car respray is the best way to express your imagination and personality through your vehicle or breathe life back into old paintwork.


The technician will always provide the best recommendation for your car based on the extent of the damage.
