Car scratches and scrapes in the paintwork can be horrible things to happen to your vehicle. No matter how they occur, scratches and paint damage are unsightly. They can drive down the resale value of your car and untreated scratches can lead to further damage at a later date. Left unrepaired, scratches can lead to exposing the body of the car, escalating into potential rust problems later on down the line.
By getting your car scratch repaired you can make sure you not only solve the immediate problems of unsightly damage, but you can also avoid additional costs in the future.
Originally, the only options for a car scratch repair would be to go into your local body shop or to use insurance premiums, both of which can be inconvenient and expensive. Here at Adept, we offer a mobile car scratch repair service where we come to you, meaning that we can complete your car paint repair at a convenient time and place of your choosing. Now there is no excuse to leave those car scratches unattended.
Here at Adept, our specialists use a method of car paint repair called SMART repair. SMART stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Technology, and is a technique used for repairing small areas of car bodywork damage, focusing strictly on the area that needs to be repaired rather than needing to repair or replace an entire car panel. Using this method means that we are able to provide car repairs that are much quicker and cheaper than those using traditional car repair techniques.
Adept can complete car body scratch repairs conveniently, cost-effectively and to an extremely high standard. Our specialists can fix a range of damage including car door scratches, keyed car scratches and stone chip repairs no matter where they are on the car.
SMART car scratch repair is proven to provide better results than store bought methods. With deeper scratches, store bought car paint repair kits and paint restorers can leave an inconsistent and patchy finish, leaving the car vulnerable. The SMART method ensures that your scratch is not only fully repaired but that the previously damaged area is protected against the elements. SMART offers a full car lacquer repair as well as fixing the scratch, as well as fix any body paint car damage.
The great news is that, at Adept, we are able to help you you with any deep car scratch repair that you may need. Whether the scratch is just light and in the clearcoat layer of the car’s surface, or whether the scratch permeates the base coat or primer, we are here to help.
If you have any questions at all about the SMART repair method or about any of our services – you can contact your Adept professional or call us on 0770 305234.

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions around the car scratch repair process.
SMART Repair is a process that allows for us to focus solely on the area of the car that needs repairing, without needing to repair a larger area than necessary.
We start by cleaning and drying the damaged area, to remove any dirt or wax that may interfere with the repair. We then carefully mask off the neighbouring panels and sand back the damaged area. We can then repair the damage layer by layer; this is then cured with an infrared lamp. The whole area is then expertly primed and resprayed in thin layers to create a high-quality colour matched finish. Finally, the panel is polished and buffed, so the paintwork looks as good as new.
Here at Adept we match the colour to the manufacturers Paint code in order to precisely match the colour of our repair to the natural body colour of your car.
All colours are mixed and matched on site before the repair starts, it is possible for us to precisely replicate that colour and make sure our repair seamlessly matches the colour of your car. This means you shouldn’t be able to see the damage once the repair has been completed.
Once the repair has been completed, theAdept specialist will buff and polish the area to protect the repaired area with specialist car scratch polish. After that, to protect the area further, we do not recommend polishing or waxing the car for five days to allow the paint to fully cure. Once those five days are over, the car can be polished and waxed as normal.
At Adept we specialise in economic and convenient repair that is designed to place your needs first. Due to our SMART repair method, we can fix a car scratch at a fraction of the cost of a tradition car repair. How much a precise repair costs will depend on the extent of the damage to your car.
Our minor bodywork repairs are usually cheaper than your car insurance excess, meaning that you don’t need to make a claim.
