Aluminium Repair

With car design becoming ever more complex, manufacturers are looking towards lighter materials. Aluminium is being used very extensively as it is lighter, and when impacted absorbs twice the energy compared with that of steel. Many modern cars have Aluminium panels which require specialist repair methods and equipment. Audi, BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes are just a few of the cars on the road today made using Aluminium. As your car is valuable to you, it is vital to ensure it is placed with a repairer who has invested appropriately to repair aluminium effectively and guarantee their work. We are proud of our investment in these facilities and welcome our customers to talk to us about how we repair to a standard that helps maintain the value of their investment. We have separate Aluminium work bays to prevent cross contamination from the steel to aluminium and even seperate tool boxes and equipment.
