Bodyshop Services by Peterborough Trim Repairs are always happy to look at your vehicle and give free impartial advice and estimates as required. We are sometimes the least expensive, but ALWAYS the best.
We can now repair your car, paint & body from a minor chip to a full respray. Smart repairs where possible we repair rather than replace and will give you various options. We always like to keep your costs to a minimum.
Paintless Dent Removal & Stone Chip Repair
Small to medium sized dents can mostly be 'massaged' out without the need for repairing and painting.
Parking dents ... we all get them. Inconsiderate parkers opening their car doors into your car can cause little dents which can totally spoil the look of your car. The body-shop answer to these dents is to rip off the paint, fill the dents and often paint the whole side of your car! This costs a great deal often resulting in an Insurance claim. But even worse, it means that you may lose not only your No Claims, but the originality of your paint. You could have colour match or paint flaking problems. Also unless the repairs are absolutely perfect when you come to sell your car, it will be spotted, thus depreciating the value of your car!
Paintless Dent Removal or PDR means that if we can get the dents out without resorting to using paint and filler the repair cost will be miniscule and your vehicle will be kept original. Typical costs are usually around the £40 to £50 per panel!
Obstacles - sometimes because of obstacles inside of body panels PDR is not possible. For example Crash Bars. On occasions we may be able to greatly improve a dent especially on larger areas. We will discuss each case before we repair and give you a 'worst case' scenario. After all we do not want you to refuse to pay because we oversold what we could do! We are always happy to advise and estimate your repair free without any obligation.
Where possible we will Flat & Polish out scratches if the damage is not too deep and a typical cost per panel is around the £20-£30 mark.
We have a computerised Paint Mixing System and can mix up to 8500 colours to match your car exactly. Generally the damage we repair is to low speed or parking damage. A typical repair would be scuff on a bumper or wing. We try to paint the minimum area to keep costs reasonable and retain originality.
Whenever possible we will 'flat + polish' minor scratches. Where paint has gone dull and faded we can often restore without re-spraying you vehicle. For larger areas and the jobs that are that bit bigger for example where we have to repair and paint the whole side of a vehicle, we will use our Body Shop Spray & Oven facilities.

By repairing rather than replacing we actually throw away very little! We use top quality Sikkens Water based Paints which are 2007 compliant and keeps our solvent emissions very low.
Typically if you visit the body shop with a scraped, cracked or dented bumper they will want to replace the whole bumper. We repair over 90% of the damaged bumpers we see! Cracks, Dents and Scuffs can mostly be fixed. We will be happy to estimate fro free. Do not confuse our repairs with those done by most smart repairers. Our repairs are done using the best quality materials and are sprayed in the latest low bake oven. This assures the durability of the repair.
ready to spray ...
We can repair and paint any vehicle up to 8 meters long and 3.1 meters high! We have the latest repair technology to actually repair rather than replace most panels. A good quality repair is generally better for the structural integrity of your vehicle.
Spraying & Oven
We have installed the latest technology oven to deal with the spraying and baking of ECO Friendly water based paints. The oven is 8 meters long by 3.1 meters high, so it is capable of taking the smallest of cars to the largest of vans.
Miracle Repair System
This enables us to repair metal panels which most body repairers would wish to replace! Thus saving not only time, but money! It will also keep the vehicle body integrity as originally built, without the need of "Cut + Welding" of replacement panels.
