How much are car scratch repairs?

The cost to repair car scratches and scuffs really depends on the type of scratch and where on the car the scratch is. Scratches come in different lengths and sizes, how severely they are will dictate the repair cost.

Typically, there are three main layers to your car’s paintwork: the undercoat/primer layer, the base coat layer which is the colour part of your car and then the protective layer of clear coat.

Shallow scratches, or clear coat scratches, are the least serious scratches and easiest to repair.

If the scratch goes beyond the clear coat layer, the only way to repair this type of scratch involves repainting the area.

If the scratch goes down to the bare metal (substrate) of your car then the area is open to the elements and at risk of rusting. We would advise that this type of scratch be repaired at your earliest convenience to avoid long term damage.

So what is S.M.A.R.T. repair?
S.M.A.R.T. stands for “Small to Medium Area Repair Technique” and means that we don’t normally need to remove or replace parts of the car to carry out repair work to scratches and scuffs. S.M.A.R.T. repairs are a highly focussed fix, blending the repair into the surrounding area.

In order to seamlessly blend the repair, we use a fantastic machine called a spectrophotometer which cross-checks our repair against the manufacturers original colour code specification. This allows us to perfectly match the shade of paint to your car, ensuring the colour and texture of your car are restored perfectly.
