Car repair services at Dick Lovett
At Dick Lovett, we can handle all types of car repair, from bodywork damage to removing chips and dents in paintwork. Some of our car bodywork repair services include the following:
Car dent removal
A dent or scratch on your car can not only be unsightly, spoiling the appearance of your vehicle, it can also affect its resale value. It’s often cheaper to get your car damage repaired than leaving it and selling it at a reduced cost.
Using the latest paintless dent repair technology, we’re able to fix small to large dents in your car. Paintless dent repair pulls dents out of cars by reshaping the panel, and because no paint is required, it can be an affordable method of removing dents from cars.
Our technicians are trained to remove dents, using special tools to pull them out of bodywork and reshape the affected area. Some dent repairs – like stone chips – will require paint, and we can do that, too. Prices start from £35 including VAT.
Alloy wheel refurbishment
Accidentally bumping or clipping a kerb, or driving over a pothole can cause alloy wheel damage, or structural damage that you can’t always see.
Our trained bodyshop technicians are on hand to repair any damage and carry out alloy wheel refurbishments quickly and without stress.
Refurbishing alloy wheels is significantly cheaper than buying new alloy wheels with prices starting from just £72 per alloy wheel, including VAT.
Diamond alloy wheel refurbishment
We also work with diamond cut alloys. A diamond cut alloy has all the painted surface removed to leave a shiny finish.
A lathe repairs the damage before the wheel is placed in an oven, cooled, then returned to the oven again. A clear powder coating is applied and cured, before the diamond cut alloy undergoes quality checks.
Finally, the alloy is returned to the wheel, before being balanced and weighted to ensure correct alignment. Prices start from £150 per alloy wheel, including VAT.
Car accident repairs
Being involved in a car accident can be a distressing experience. Whether your vehicle has suffered minor scrapes or major damage, you’ll want to get it repaired, restored to its best condition, and back on the road as quickly as possible.
Our bodyshop technicians are on hand to complete car repairs after accidents, and in accordance with insurance claims, using the latest technology and tools.
Dick Lovett Bodyshops carry approval for BMW, MINI, Aston Martin, and are also specialists in Ferrari, Maserati, Jaguar and Land Rover.
Our Swindon Bodyshop is a Porsche Recommended Repairer.
Car customisation covers anything from small bodywork modifications to a full-colour respray. We’ll undertake a variety of car personalisation work ranging from minor bodywork repairs to major restoration projects.
Whether you want to give your car a new lease of life instead of having to buy a new one, or just fancy a change from the usual appearance, body kits can provide you with a modern and unique look for your car without the cost of buying a brand new vehicle.
The car customisation and modification services that we offer include: roof colour change, wing mirror colour change, grille colour change, bodykit fitting, full car respray, alloy wheel colour change, brake callipers colour change and exhaust tip colour change.
Machine polishing and detailing
Over time, your car’s paintwork might lose its shine, due to a variety of factors such as swirls caused by improper washing, scratches from hedges, corrosion from bird droppings and even marks from the rain.
Machine polishing is a technique that Dick Lovett’s expert bodyshop team can use to improve the appearance of your car. It’s a more effective method than hand polishing, using a car polishing machine which can remove scratches from your car’s bodywork, and improve the overall appearance of your car by enhancing the shiny look of the exterior.
Having your car machine polished also keeps it cleaner for longer, meaning fewer trips to the carwash. Get in touch with us to tell us your paintwork issue, and our team can provide you with a customised quote.
Bumper damage is unsightly and can spoil the look of your car – not to mention affecting its resale or part exchange value.
There are many methods for bumper repairs, and our trained bodyshop technicians will advise you on the best method for your car.
Not all bumper damage requires a repaint. If it’s just a small dent or dink, we can repair the bumper without removing it from the car at all.
If you have a bumper scuff or bumper dent it might be possible for our body shop technicians to repair your car using a SMART repair (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology technique). Prices start from £95 including VAT.
