Scratches and Bumps

Looking to tidy up my wife's car before we sell it. Would be great to get recommendations on mobile repairers for:

- Bumper scratches
- Gutter Rash (can they fix this mobile?)
- Minor body scratch over wheel arch

Location North Shore Sydney.

Thanks

I took the car to their factory in castle hill. You could also use any panel beaters, their always keen for small cash jobs. Merv newby smash repairers in rydalmere are good.

I actually signed up with a company called The SMART Guys. They have a membership style, kind of like insurance (but they call it warranty). It cost $595 for a 3 year membership. Everytime you get a bump, dent, scrape, curb rash etc you can make a claim for each one which costs $50 and they'll come to your house, work wherever to fix it. You get unlimited claims within the 'warranty' period.

I had a rear bumper scrape fixed which had gouged deep through the paint and into the plastic. He came to my work, sanded it down and repainted it.

The only issue is that it was really windy on that day so there's speckling in the clear and some dust in the paint job. They have a warranty on their work though so I can get it redone anytime, I just haven't been bothered because it's impossible to tell except on close inspection.

Text him and he'll probably get you to email him with some photos of your damage, he'll get back to you the same day with a quote unless the damage is unusual.

So lord of the dings - 500 if he can pop the dent without having to remove the paint. 750 if he has to do bonnet and bar.

Vescio - 1000 bar n bonnet.

Will give tate a ring.
