Service Details

We provide a high quality static paint repair service in and around the Colchester area. Your car will be repaired to the highest possible standard by a perfectionist!

No over-spray guaranteed and a repair that will last the lifetime of your car. Please check out our customer comments page to see what  customers have to say about us.

Most cars will get minor damage at some time in their life. This can be anything from a light scuffed bumper, to a scratch in a supermarket car park, to even vandalism. We are often approached by customers who have been asked by their insurer to get 2 or 3 quotes. Due to our expertise and repair techniques, we are often up to 50% off the cost of going to a main dealer.


Selling your car?

If you are selling your car and want the best possible price for it, it may be worth considering having any minor damage repaired. This is best done before you put the car up for sale. If your car is in very good condition you will get a quicker sale and at a higher price.  If you were buying a car, you would probably expect it to look as good as it can. You may just want to tidy up your car to sell on, or return to the leasing company.

We can add value to the car and make it easier to sell (or live with), not to mention the money you can save compared to having the body shop do the same repairs.

Don’t let the lease company charge you extortionate penalties to have damage repaired!

If you return your car back to the leasing company, beware that you may receive penalties to have minor damage repaired. Penalties that can sometimes add up to a lot more than getting the car prepared for return.

We offer a prep for return service. We will inspect the car, which must be clean. The car will be inspected in the same way it would by a leasing company. The damage will be written down and then options will be explained. Most leasing and contract hire companies will allow fair wear and tear, so we may be able to tidy up the car to get it to an acceptable condition. Using our service, you can have your car made to look like new again in just a few hours. We can repair most paint damage using our PCR (Paint Chip Repair) System.

This enables us to be able to repair cars that have stone chips that would otherwise need repainting.

High mileage cars often get peppered on the bumper and bonnet due to stone chips. These chips are often exposing metal or primer that MUST be sealed to avoid rapid corrosion.

The only way Body shops do this is to carry out a costly re spray of the panels affected. We use a different approach. Not everyone wants or can afford this traditional type of repair. We can carry out a professional touch up service at a fraction of the cost of a re-spray. A touch up will be 70 – 90% improvement on the appearance of the damage and in some cases, entirely invisible. (Remember, Stewart is a perfectionist!)

It is often not possible to make the damage 100% undetectable, however, we can guarantee that the professional touch up technique will look much better and will be far better protected from rust and corrosion.

Happy Customers

"I am writing to compliment you on your skill and workmanship and to say how pleased I am with your repair – the removal of quite serious rippled dents in the rear passenger door of my car. I am reckoned to be something of a perfectionist, and I can only wonder how you managed to remove the dents without damage to the paintwork and consequently make the repair to the door impossible to see. Once again I compliment you on your skill and thank you for a first class job."

Richard Morgan


"I recently purchased a 7-year old BMW 523i black estate. For a car of that age it came with the usual knocks, scuffs and some minor rust. I can honestly say that your service converted it from what it was to a near brand new vehicle. I am so pleased with its looks and I will without doubt recommend your services to my family, friends and acquaintances."
