Harwoods Aftercare

SMART Repairs

Here at Harwoods, we know how important it is to return your vehicle back to its showroom condition after bumps, scuffs and accidents.

Our expert Technicians are highly qualified with many years’ experience using specialist technology and we only use genuine parts and paint. This means you can be sure that your vehicle will be restored back to its original factory condition and you’re back on the road as quickly as possible.

Most people are not aware that in the event of an accident it’s your legal right to choose where your vehicle is repaired. Your insurer may promote a particular repairer in order to keep their costs down. However, this can mean that your vehicle does not receive the attention and care that it deserves. It is important to know your rights so that you can insist that your vehicle is repaired by a reputable, quality, manufacturer approved repairer.

Our Services

In the unfortunate event of a bump, scuffs, dents or damage from an accident, our accident repair centres are insurance approved, with the latest tools and equipment to return your much-loved vehicle back to its former glory.

Your vehicle will be carefully examined by our highly skilled vehicle damage assessors. The damage will be assessed with photos and vehicle details taken to ensure an accurate estimate, which is FREE and comprehensive, detailing parts, materials, labour and processes.

Hybrid and Electric cars are growing in popularity, and this is only going to increase as demand for environmentally friendly, economic vehicles is soaring. From a minor knock or scuff right through to major accident repairs, we are fully trained, equipped and approved to safely repair your hybrid and electric vehicles.

Alloy Wheels

Our vertical alloy wheel lathe uses state of the art technology to create a top-notch finish, removing any curb damage or those tiny imperfections or just to get your alloy wheels to look the part. With that diamond cut finish, works carried out by our skilled technicians, our team have the expertise without compromise.

Parts & Paint

We only use genuine parts and approved materials. Our high-tech, in house mixing system has the ability to create the perfect match. We achieve accurate paint matches with our state-of-the-art colour camera allowing us to colour match to any formula using genuine brand specific paints.

What are SMART Repairs?

SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) is the process of repairing a car using specialist tools, paint, and materials on a localised damaged area. SMART repair avoids the need to remove or repaint the entire panel of the car. Instead, by seamlessly blending the latest paintwork technology and process, the SMART technique allows more focus on the damaged area.
