Harratts SMART Repairs

Shortened time and reduced costs

What is SMART Repair?

SMART stands for Small and Medium Area Repair Techniques.

This is the process of repairing a car using specialised tools, paint and materials to provide a cost-effective alternative to full-scale Bodyshop repairs. Over a decade ago a minor car repair needed to go to a specialist Bodyshop meaning a minor dent would require extensive work. SMART repairs have shortened the time and have reduced the price to fix minor damage.

How does it work?

SMART car repair techniques allow damage to be isolated and treated specifically without effecting the rest of the panel. Specialist technicians focus on the area of damage and use specialist paint, tools, methods and materials to ensure a good-as-new finish. Minor bumps and dents are also done as a SMART repair without disturbing the rest of the car. These would usually take a lengthy time to be completed and with a large expense.*
