Some examples of our repairs

Budget repair VW Golf Mk5 5 door

This family car was damaged on a narrow lane and the owner was horrified at the potential repair cost. Our approach was to carry out a high quality repair on a very tight budget by reducing the area to be painted. Rather than repaint both doors, a professional dent pull was carried out on the rear door leading edge, the scratches machine polished off the front and rear metal door skins and then finished with minor touch ins. The door strips were then flatted and repainted, then the sills received a simple coat of filler and a repaint The finished job can be seen in the photos and cost 25% of a traditional workshop repair-as well as being carried out same day during office hours. The owner simply wanted it tidied up as cheaply as possible and was amazed with the results.


Paint repair Toyota Auris

This otherwise pristine brand new car suffered minor damage on the very low leading edge of the front bumper and the owner wanted a high quality repair as quickly as possible. The car was repaired the same day to new standard in under two hours for around the cost of a tank of fuel. The owner was surprised it could be done properly and quickly for a low price and was very appreciative.


Spectrophotometer Paint Matched Panel repair: Renault Modus Dynamique

This car was purchased cheaply off ebay with some panel damage and needed work to the offside panels.

Being nine years old and an unusual colour, the standard paint colour as per Renault specification was an entirely different to the actual colour on the vehicle, so the digital paint reading spectrophotometer was used to create a perfectly matched batch of paint. The finished job is invisible: this simply would not have been possible using the paint code shown on the vehicle as the car had faded over nine years of use.


Retail preparation, paint matching and machine polishing: Citroen 2CV

This 27 year old car was showing its age and had been badly repainted in places. With the wings and one door fully repainted and a few detailing jobs carried out, the car was treated to a full machine polish and hand wax and it sold immediately.


Bumper replacement Vauxhall Vectra Diesel

This car had sustained some severe damage to the lower bumper which necessitated complete replacement, along with a number of associated parts; grilles, foglights, fixings etc. Through our extensive contacts we completed this job by sourcing a mix of salvage, pattern and genuine Vauxhall parts, expertly matching the paint colour then fitting and testing all replacement parts. The final bill for all parts, painting and labour was considerably less than the cost of just the parts from a main dealer. The great saving was passed on to the happy owner.


Panel repair: Audi A5 coupe

This car was hit while parked and the owner did not want to make an insurance claim or take time out of a busy schedule. The wing was in a poor state, being badly dented in several places and a new panel was discussed but a repair to a reasonable standard was possible at a price to suit the owner, with the works carried out during one day whilst the owner"s work carried on uninterrupted.


Bumper scuff repair: Audi A3 TDI Sport

This minor repair to this very new Audi was carried out to a high standard during the owner's working hours and the car then delivered to their place of work four hours ahead of schedule. A similar job on the next door neighbours three week old car followed after they inspected the workmanship seen on this car.


Machine polish and bespoke paint: Peugeot Warwick AutoSleeper Motorhome

This luxury camper needed some detailing, so the owner chose a full machine polish to make it look new again and after discussing the options, chose a new colour for the front panel to make it look more up-to-date and sharp.

By repainting the front surround in a more dynamic metallic dark grey, this outstanding pre-owned six year old vehicle was made to look like this years brand new model - much to the owner"s delight.


Bumper plastic repair: BMW 1 series

This car was hit while parked and the owner wanted the repair to match the original BMW quality.

The dent was pulled out after heat treatment and expert use of tools, then the panel was repaired to a high standard and repainted using the best materials. The owner could not fault the finished job and was surprised that this result could be achieved without traditional franchise bodyshop facilities.


Bumper scuff repair: Ford Mondeo

A minor scuff on this car was dealt with cost effectively and quickly at the owner"s home in a few hours. The owner was delighted with the finished job - especially the matching of the paint colour.


Budget bumper repair Vauxhall Vectra Estate

This estate car had unsightly damaged to the rear which was very noticeable but confined to the topcoat lacquer. With some expert flatting and polishing and a couple of minor touch ups, this repair was carried out cheaply and in less than one hour to the delight of the owners.


Crash repair using salvage parts: Ford Focus 5 door

This car sustained front end damage requiring a substantial repair, for which a traditional bodyshop repair quote exceeded the value of the vehicle. Our approach was simple and cost effective; to find an identical matching vehicle with rear end damage and use that as a donor vehicle for all the parts needed. Within 48 hours of quoting, the donor vehicle was located, the parts swapped over and the repair completed. As well as being less than a third of the bodyshop price, the repair was carried out extremely swiftly with the car collected after office hours, repaired overnight and returned the following day at lunch time.


Paint repair: Audi A6 Avant

This lease car was due for return and needed to be perfect for the end of lease inspection, so the busy owner booked the repair to fit in with a time he was working from home. The repair was carried out to Audi standards, using the best possible materials at the home address and the owner was pleased with the excellent results.


Lease return: Ford Focus 5 door

This car was due to be returned to the hire company after three years of hard use and the owner would have suffered a large repair bill if it had not been sorted out. The car had minor damage to virtually every panel, plus had sustained a fairly heavy impact to the rear and the owner was very concerned about the astronomical prices quoted elsewhere for rectification. We were given a very tight budget to return the car to new standard and were still able to fully repair every area of damage to the delight of the owner. This was done by sourcing a matching boot lid from an identical car and being able to carry out economical localised repairs using SMART repair techniques to all the other damaged areas. The car was repaired, polished and returned within one weekend to a very relieved owner.


Budget repair/scratch removal: Vauxhall Zafira

This car had deep hedge scratches to both sides and a scuff on the wheel arch. Working through our abrasive papers, pads and polishes, the scratches were removed and the wheel arch was improved greatly-without need for respraying-and for a very low price. The car was hand waxed and returned to a very pleased owner who had put off the repair as it looked like it would be expensive-but with just two hours and for less cost than a tank of fuel, we transformed this family car.


Budget repair: Skoda Octavia vRS

This car was damaged by a third party who contacted to ask me to carry out an urgent repair. The job was carried out the same day and our professional techniques and specialist equipment saved the client a huge amount of money and the car owner from suffering any inconvenience-the repair was carried out at their choice of time at their own home. We were able to remove very deep scratches from the headlight and panels and this saved the very high cost of replacing the complete Xenon headlamp unit and the cost of respraying any paintwork. A fast, cost effective repair which pleased both parties-without the need for an insurance claim or courtesy car.


Crash repair using salvage parts: Vauxhall Corsa B 5 door

Our common sense approach and ability to sort a problem with the minimum of fuss can be seen in this repair where damage occurred after a third party collided with the Corsa in a car park. Due to the age and value of the car, an insurance assessor would have deemed the car "beyond economical repair" for this minor repair as the cost of new parts, bodyshop labour and the cost of the claim processing and courtesy car would have exceeded the "book" value for the Corsa, so it would have been written off as a total insurance loss. The owners were attached to the car having had it from new and wanted to keep the car, so had a quote from a bodyshop, which was way beyond what the third party would reasonable pay for. After meeting with prangFIX, all parties agreed that using a matching wing off a salvage vehicle to carry out a repair appropriate to the car was the best option. All parties were well pleased with the outcome: the owners had the car returned in pre-accident condition (the repair work took less than two hours one evening when the car was not needed) and the third party paid less than a quarter of the cost of the bodyshop repair and had no insurance costs to pay.


Crash repair using salvage parts: Renault Megane hatch

This car had damaged sustained from a post and the plastic wing had been structurally damaged and had pieces missing. We assessed the vehicle and sourced an exact match part in perfect condition and in the correct paint colour, online via our sources and had this delivered. Once inspected, we undertook the job and an this outstanding repair was completed in under one hour, including replacement of the flasher unit and some re-alignment of the bonnet and nearside wing shut lines to give the factory fresh look. This method of using a genuine Renault salvage part sourced from a car of the same colour and build year gave a far superior match than would have been achieved by buying a new part and trying to match new paint to the adjoining paint which had endured nine years of sunlight and wear. It was also a cost-effective solution for the owner who was delighted with the result.


Crash repair using salvage parts: Ford Focus 5 door

This customer had their car door skin was badly damaged by an unknown party. By using our commercial Ford software, we were able to source an exact replacement door from the same production run, so replaced the complete door giving an excellent repair. We spent time sourcing the correct part, yet once booked in the removal and as refitting took less than two hours (compared to the three-four days required by a bodyshop to repair the damage) which fitted in around the owner's working hours. The cost was also less than half of a repair to the door.

We have a large number of contacts and the ability to source and match many original external parts to factory standard.


Parts replacement service: Mini Cooper R56 diesel

This Mini had some corner damage and the owner wanted an economical repair without going through the insurance company. Using our contacts, we ordered the parts direct from BMW as in this instance salvage sourced parts were expensive. We visited the client's property at a time that suited them and carried out a sensbily priced repair in under 3 hours, which included touching in the bumper and various chips and scratches plus polishing out some minor marks around the car.

Damage Repair: Parts Sourcing and Replacement, Panel Repair, Decals: Mini Cooper S R56

This car had frontal damage from being kicked by a spooked horse. The owner of the horse wanted to pay for the repair rather than claim on their policy.

The owner of the car wanted the car back to perfect condition, but wanted to be fair with the other party and had taken time getting numerous quotes for the repair, before being given our number by a friend who had used prang-FIX twice on their own cars.

Our quote was less than half the price (and half the time) of the other companies and both parties were happy to proceed. Rather than paying new BMW parts prices, we sourced the correct BMW parts through our salvage contacts, quality checked them on arrival then arranged to start the repair which was carried out efficiently without any need for a courtesy car.

The result can be seen in the photos and both parties were absolutely delighted; the owner had a first class repair using genuine BMW parts in record time and the owner of the horse saved a large amount of money by paying half the price and not having to cover courtesy car costs for the repair duration as quoted by the workshop. By using this approach, a fast sensible solution was reached and everybody felt they had been treated fairly.
