Smart Repair: Little effort – great effect

The repair procedures for minor damages are eliminating the conventional methods of repair that are often preferred. Without having to lose quality, plastics, including their surface structure, push out smaller dents in the sheet or quirks in the paint – making the paint almost invisible. This repair type has the technical name “Smart Repair.” But beware: Depending on the type of damage, the present materials and the quality of work of the company, this repair may not be right for your damages. We give you a recommendation on an individual basis: This will save unnecessary costs.
