Scuffs & Chips
Bumper scuffs, cracks, chips and scratches are both unsightly and have an impact on the value of your vehicle.

Smart & Go can eliminate the need of you using a conventional/ traditional bodyshop by offering a fast, safe, cost effective and high quality alternative. Which can take less than 1 hour to repair…how that’s for starters. This is backed up with our manufacturer approved paint schemes, allowing us to guarantee accurate colour matches. Paint technology has improved significantly in recent years with Automotive Repair Systems using the latest paint and auxiliary products resulting in the very best in Repair quality.
Alloy wheels are now on 98% of all cars and although in appearance they are appealing, they are more susceptible to damage, scuffs, scrapes, kerbing and pothole damage and corrosion than any other part of your car. With our team of highly trained SMART technicians, we can provide a hassle free, professional and cost effective remedy to bring your alloys back to their former glory.
Let’s Talk Diamond
The repair process involved for a Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel / Diamond Polished Alloy Wheel finish is aptly named due to the Diamond tip used to cut the face of the wheel. First of all in the repair procedure is the wheel is primed and painted; we then probe the face of the wheel to map it out on the computer. “With more and more manufacturers opting for Diamond Cut Alloys /Diamond Polished style of alloys, don’t panic they can be repaired” This mapping allows the lathe to cut away a very fine slither exposing the bare metal, thus producing a 2 toned effect. The wheel is then powder coated in lacquer and baked to a super hard finish. We can match any colour and can even invent colours if you so wish! This can be done during your Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel Repair.
Using your Air Conditioning…whilst we make sure that our vehicles receive a regular service our air conditioning systems are often forgotten. Over time, the air conditioning system in your vehicle needs to be serviced and recharged to continue to work to its optimum level.
Your car air conditioning works all year round to keep you and your passengers comfortable whilst also filtering out dust, pollen and minimizing condensation levels to help you enjoy your journey. Whilst continuous use can help your vehicle air conditioning work more efficiently, it needs regular maintenance the same as any other component on your car.
Maintaining your air conditioning system is essential, not only for the personal comfort of the driver and passengers but for your health too. Air Conditioning units, especially in older vehicles are subject to spreading bacteria as this builds up in the vents, so it is essential to ensure your air-con is working safely and cleanly.
Ensuring your vehicle is aligned correctly is critical to not only your vehicle’s performance and handling, but also the life cycle of the tyres. Ever noticed or been told that one tyre is scrubbing or worn out on the inner edge, where the opposite site tyre is perfectly fine?
