Some examples of our work…
The proof is in the photos… We’re lousy at remembering to take shots of our work, but here’s a few BEFORE and AFTER pics of recently completed repairs.

Scuffbusters will have you back on the road in hours or days, never weeks!

Why do other bodyshops want your car for weeks? Scuffbusters don’t.

With our Quality Guarantee and our Price Guarantee, you might expect that we want to hang on to your car, van or bike for a week or two whilst we carry out your car body repairs. Other bodyshops do.
Not a bit of it. Simple repairs like Paintless Dent Removal of a scraped bumper will be turned around in an hour or two or maybe 1 day. The largest panel repair jobs rarely stretch to 2 or 3 days. Isn’t that a refreshing change?

And don’t forget we can always keep you mobile with our Free Courtesy Cars.

Scuffbusters not only get your car looking great for less than anyone else, we do it faster too.

Preserve your Insurance No Claims Bonus with Scuffbusters

Had a minor scrape? Don’t Panic!

  • Detailed Check
  • With our Quality Guarantee and our Price Guarantee, Free Courtesy Cars and our Faster Turnaround make sure you call us before your insurers.
  • Oh, and don't forget, even if a claim in unavoidable, Scuffbusters can still help, see our Insurance Claim page.
  • Insurance Excess £500? - That can cover some really quite nasty 'encounters'. For example, damage to a bumper, with a nasty scrape through a wing and 'blending' into an adjacent panel to ensure that perfect colour match could be undertaken for less at Scuffbusters.

We are very often able to fix those minor, or not so minor scrapes for less than your Insurance Excess level.

  • Insurance Excess £100? - Our Paintless Dent Removal wizard can magic away quite significant dents in your panels for less than this amount.
  • Insurance Excess £250? - We can fix nasty bumper scuffs or cracks for well within this figure, even damaged doors, wings, bonnets or other panels are repairable for less than this.
  • Insurance Excess £500? - That can cover some really quite nasty 'encounters'. For example, damage to a bumper, with a nasty scrape through a wing and 'blending' into an adjacent panel to ensure that perfect colour match could be undertaken for less at Scuffbusters.
  • Protected No Claims Bonus? - Great, but these usually only allow for maybe one or two claims over a certain period. Many drivers choose to avoid making a claim for smaller repairs to ensure that any future 'big one' is still allowed for. And also, don't forget that protection is only valid if you stay with your current insurer. If you ever want to shop around, that claim will come back to bite you...

Firstly we’ll just say that even if a claim is unavoidable, Scuffbusters can still help, see our Insurance Claim page. But hopefully that won’t be necessary…

With car body repair rates as low as ours, a large proportion of our business is from motorists who have had a minor scrape, want to get their car back to perfect, but don’t want to claim on their insurance.

As you will probably know, insurers impose an excess figure on most policies, which means that you are liable to pay that first amount of any claim, and they will only cover whatever runs over that.

In these days of sky-high premiums, many drivers choose to have a higher excess level in return for a lower annual premium. In essence you are accepting more of the risk for a lower price. Basic economics.

But with typical bodyshop prices meaning that even minor scrapes can cost a small (or not so small) fortune to fix you may well think that an insurance claim is your only option. In some cases of course you will be right, but – depending upon your excess level – there will be many other instances where we can repair your car perfectly for less than this level. So no insurance claim. No penalties for making that claim. No unnecessary premium increases.

Scuffbusters work closely with your Insurers

Need to make a claim? – insist on using Scuffbusters

But what if my insurers insist on using their repairers?

The choice on who repairs your car is yours. By law. but…

  • Firstly, please see this Know Your Rights leaflet
  • Secondly, according to The Financial Ombudsman Service, "After Payment Protection Insurance, Motor Insurance is the most complained-about insurance area, with the quality of repairs being the most notable area." See here for more details. When we see some of the work undertaken by others, we're not surprised.
  • Insurers usually have a vested interest in using their 'Approved Repairers', they have often negotiated very favourable rates that can help them keep their costs down. As Scuffbusters' rates are invariably far lower than other bodyshops however we are usually able to reach agreement with them so we can carry out the repairs to your car.
  • Insurers can sometimes try to make it difficult not to use their repairers, here are a few of the reasons you may hear;
  • "We can't provide you with a Courtesy Car" - Well we will. See our Free Courtesy Cars page for details.
  • "We can't guarantee the work quality" - We will, we think our Quality Guarantee is unbeatable in the business.
  • "Our Repairer will collect and return your car" - OK, we don't usually do that, but we are open on Saturday mornings for drop-offs and collections if that helps, and can usually accommodate any other needs by arrangement. What you may not realise is that the 'Approved Repairer' may not be local. Or even close to local. We know of one insurer who tries to get everything through their workshop in Yorkshire! How do you suppose that works if you have any issues with the repairs at some later date? Most of our clients are local and we're always here to help.

So you’ve had an ‘incident’ and need to claim on your insurance for your car body repairs? (check our Keep your No Claims Discount page first!) There are a whole host of reasons why you should insist on Scuffbusters to carry out your car body repairs:

Our work is fully guaranteed. For as long as you own the car. – To our knowledge nobody else offers that degree of confidence in their work. Check out our Quality Guarantee page for details.

We guarantee your satisfaction – No dodgy repairs or poor quality standards, Scuffbusters aim for 100% satisfaction. Until you’re delighted, we’re not. Make sure you visit our Quality Guarantee page and learn how other ‘Approved Repairers’ may not be so fussy..

Our prices can keep your premiums lower – One of the first things an insurer will consider when giving you a premium is your claims history. The number and amount of any claims you make can have a direct influence on the premium they quote. Higher claims levels mean higher risk and higher premiums. Our Lower Rates can help keep all those figures down.

We’ll keep you mobile – With our Free Courtesy Cars

So, using Scuffbusters is really what they call a ‘no brainer’ isn’t it?
