Dents and Scuffs is a local independent business based in Colchester and owned by Stewart Dryburgh.  It was originally started in Ipswich by the late Alan Hobbs with the help of the Prince’s Trust in 2000.  With Alan at the helm the business grew from a small car valeting and touch up service into a workshop based car body repair service. Dents and Scuffs is now based in Colchester and was purchased by Stewart with the help of enterprise agency NWES.  Stewart’s dream was to offer a cheaper and more convenient alternative to the traditional body shop in the Colchester area and NWES helped Stewart to turn his business idea into a reality.  Since Stewart purchased the business he had introduced Hydro-dipping and Hydro-chrome to his portfolio.

Stewart says, “After considerable research from the public and from the local trade, it appeared that there was a need for a mobile service to repair scuffs and minor dents as quotes from body shops were just too expensive... didn’t want a franchise as this restricted me to what services I could offer and what products I had to use. I wanted to provide the best quality repairs and use quality products so being an independent gave me a huge advantage."

Stewart has the bonus of also leasing a workshop for larger jobs and for during bad weather so that he can offer a service all the year around.  He also provides a collect and return service if required (please ask for a price).

Dents and Scuffs is a small local business and does not charge VAT so you are instantly saving 20%. Stewart specialises in minor repairs, mostly completed within a day! “Why repaint an entire bumper when there is just a scuff on the corner, with my computerised paint matching system and specialist micro spray guns, I can achieve a very accurate match and blend in the repair so only the damaged area is repaired".

This saves the customer money as less paint and materials are used and less labour time wasted” says Stewart. Metallic and pearl paints are no problem with this system.
