What is SMART repair?

The SMART in SMART repair stands for Small and Medium Area Repair Techniques.

These innovative systems were introduced over a decade ago and have developed to the point where they now provide a cost effective alternative to full-scale bodyshop repairs.

Previously, even minor car repair work needed to be carried out in a specialist bodyshop. Damage such as a scuff, scratch or minor dent required extensive work – often involving the repair or replacement of entire panels, plus the time and expense of large-scale paint work.

The affordable alternative


Now, minor damage can be repaired quickly and easily using SMART car repair techniques. For instance, the area of a small scuff or scratch can be treated in isolation without impacting the rest of the panel.

Specialist technicians simply focus on the scuff or scratch, using specialist tools, paints, materials and methods to repair and repaint damage – producing a good-as-new finish.

The same applies to minor bumps and dents. Whereas previously, such damage would require a lengthy visit to a bodyshop and the expense that goes with this, our technicians can instead manipulate the damaged area back into shape quickly and effectively. Stoneacre minor repairs include;

Small Dents – Usually removed using specialist technology with no paint repair required.

Scratches – Minor paintwork damage can be fixed quickly without complex repair work.

Stone Chips – Stone-chips to windscreens or paintwork can be repaired without replacement.

Bumpers – SMART repairs quickly fix dents and scuffs to front and rear bumpers.

Wing Mirror - If the mirror case is intact, a minor repair is possible.

Single Panel Damage – Finds out if damage needs an insurance claim, or a minor repair costing less than your excess.

Frequently asked questions


Q. Do you need to tell your insurance company if your car needs SMART repairs?


A. No you don’t. It’s often cheaper to have one carried out than to claim on your insurance – the cost can often be lower than your excess. Our technicians can assess the damage and let you know the cost of minor repair work.

Q. Do you need to book your car in for any SMART repair work?


A. All Stoneacre branches offer SMART repair work but your car will still need to be booked in before any minor car repair work can commence. However, because these repairs are often carried out quickly, your car may not need to spend as much time with us.

Q. How can you be sure the minor repair is as good as traditional body shop work?


A. We only ever use SMART repair tools, materials and methods to carry out minor car repair work. This enables us to deliver a good-as-new finish you can trust.

Q. If paintwork is damaged, will the car need a substantial respray?


A. Minor repair technology enables us to focus our repairs on the area of damage and colour-match new paint with the rest of your car - you’ll be amazed at the results.
