Lifetime Quality Guarantee

only at Scuffbusters

  • The best quality repairs - We always aim for, and invariably achieve, perfect repairs. Until you're delighted, we're not. Simple.
  • That will stay that way - Our repairs are guaranteed for a minimum of 2 years if you sell the vehicle, or as long as you own the car, no matter how long that is. Ask others if they'll offer that confidence in their work, we've looked and can't find anyone. Anywhere.
  • We are often asked to cut corners on repairs, with comments like "I'm not worried about it looking perfect, as long as it looks better" or "I don't mind if the colour doesn't match perfectly, I can't afford for you to 'blend' the new paint across the next panel". It may sound harsh but we just don't take those jobs on, we get it right or we don't do it. Why? because although you may be happy that your repaired back door and the original front door are slightly different colours, but someone else will notice it and if they know the work was done at Scuffbusters they're likely to think that's our work quality. We work massively hard to maintain the great reputation we have for top quality work and aren't about to throw that away.
  • Our staff are highly trained technicians, with many years traditional bodyshop experience. We use the latest tools, materials and techniques to obtain results that withstand scrutiny by anyone. If anything 'goes wrong' with your repair at some point in the future, bring it back to us and we'll sort it out. No timescale limit, as long as the car is in the same ownership and you can produce a copy of our bill as confirmation, there will be no questions asked. We can count the number of instances this has happened on one hand. With fingers to spare.
  • So, with this quality & satisfaction guarantee, plus our Price Guarantee, Super Fast Turnaround and Free Courtesy Cars why wouldn't you use us?

If you’ve quite badly damaged a wing, quarter panel or perhaps a door has had a bit of a thump, no worries. If it’s repairable we’ll repair it. Trust us, we’ll happily return to perfection damaged panels that other bodyshops would immediately look to replace. We don’t think willy-nilly replacement is good practice, both from price and environmental impact perspectives.

Bear in mind also that often you’re likely to have less long-term issues with a good quality panel repair than with a panel replacement, which quite often comes under the ‘major invasive surgery’ category. Following that analogy through, we’re not ‘scalpel happy slash and stitch merchants’. If we can avoid going in deep, we will certainly do so, as long as we can get a perfect result. That has to be better doesn’t it?

If a wing, door, bumper or bonnet really is totally past being repairable, no problem. We’ll source and fit original manufacturers parts and do whatever is needed to get your car looking perfect again. We have the quality car body surgeon expertise and can use those skills when needed.

Take a look through some of the below pictures for an idea of the sort of work we’ve carried out.

A lousy ‘before’ photo from us, but this one is such a peach we just have to share it with you… Believe it or not, the local dealer had given this client an estimate for just over £6000 for this job (yes, really, that’s SIX THOUSAND POUNDS), as they reckoned that in addition to a new bumper and light cluster, the whole quarter panel needed replacement. To be fair, that ‘before’ picture doesn’t really show how bad the car looked before we started on it. Ok, we did need to fit a new part of the bumper but the main section was repairable. And the light cluster price was unavoidable, but even with those very expensive BMW parts prices and a huge amount of time making the panel good (and no, the filler wasn’t 2 inches deep, only a thin skim was needed), our bill was still under £2000. We think that a £4k saving is probably our best ever…

The owner of this Ford Focus had been told that this quarter panel needed replacement, an extensive cut & weld surgery job, ‘estimated’ at just under £1000. We disagreed and after skilled panel beating and only a small amount of smoothing filler we’re all good again. Our bill? £360.

We see these every day of every week. An easy 2 day repair for Scuffbusters and around £300, approximately half what the main dealer would want. Note that with repairs like this, to get a good colour match we have to ‘blend’ the new paint across onto adjacent panels, otherwise the price would have been only around £200…
