One day Car Paint Repair Essex

RS Scuff ‘n’ Buff are car paint repair experts in Essex. Scratches and paint damage are not only unsightly, but will reduce the resale value of your vehicle. Furthermore, ignoring the need to undertake a scratch repair on your car’s paintwork can lead to rust problems– meaning you could needlessly incur extra, but avoidable, costs in the future.

Previously, the only options for your car paint repairs Essex were expensive body shops or claiming on your insurance, but now using the SMART repair method, there is no excuse to leave those car scratches unattended.

    A very fast and efficient service Rob was very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. I had a few scratches to my back bumper which he has made good as new. My car is back to showroom standards.

    Took my car in to Rob after I managed to reverse it into a wall and couldn't be happier with the work he and the team carried out. It's as good as new and all completed in the timeframe he estimated and at a great price too. Professional, courteous and helpful guys I really couldn't recommend them more highly

  • Had a repair done to my Kia sportage today. Great service quite a deep area of paintwork damage done and was done within a few hours after dropping off. Was quoted over £1000 by an acccident repair garage in Braintree referred by Kia who said I needed a new bumper etc etc and Rob did a great job for £200. Would highly recommend. Thanks

Frequently asked Car Paintwork Repair Questions

What is the process to repair a scratched car?

If the panels which have been scratched have broken the paint and cannot be polished out then they can easily be repaired. The scratches are sanded down, filled (if needed) primed, resprayed, and blended as far as is necessary, again only painting the damaged area.

How much does car paintwork repair cost?

We can’t give you an estimate unless we see the vehicle, either in person, or by photos. The colour of the car and location of the damage will determine whether we have to blend the paint and lacquer into the next panel, and this all affects the cost.

How long will it take?

This convenient process is performed usually within one day. We ask for the cars to be dropped off between 8-8.30am, and would then call you in the afternoon when they are ready for collection.

Can you match my car colour?

We never use stock paint, which is almost never the same batch of paint that was used in painting the vehicle, and could, therefore, be visibly a slightly different colour. We use computer assisted mixing on-site to create a paint to match the panel we are painting, ensuring the best possible colour match.

My car is a 3 stage colour can you repair it?

Unlike many other repairers, we can and do provide repairs to metallic, pearl, mica and combination effect finishes.( 3 and 4 stage) .
