About Us

We are A1 Dents & Smart Repairs, a long established family business operating in and around North West London.

Having started out over 20 years ago as “one man with a van” repairing just dents, we have grown to a team of eight technicians and we also repair minor body/paintwork damage (aka “smart repairs”) and alloy wheels.

We take a real pride in our work, whether we’re working on a Ford Fiesta or an Aston Martin.  We work with lots of the area’s franchised dealerships together with the country’s largest provider of cosmetic vehicle warranties.  

We are fully mobile so we come to you in order to save you time and money, we can do the repair at your home or work.


Our Story

Back in 1996, our founder Luis Perez joined a little known business called DentMaster and learned a brand new technique for repairing dents called “paintless dent removal”.  This is a highly skilled process whereby dents are pushed out from inside the vehicle using special tooling.  What could previously only be repaired in a body shop (at great expense) could now be repaired by a mobile technician in a much shorter space of time.  As word got out in the motor industry, demand for these services boomed.

After mastering the whole process, Luis setup on his own as A1 Dents 20 years ago in 2000.  During this time he built the solid reputation upon which the business still stands, building up a network of customers throughout the North West London area.

In 2010, struggling to meet demand, Luis looked to expand and looked no further than his own son Harley.  As one of the top dent repair specialists in the whole country, Luis trained Harley to operate with the same skill and dedication that he was renowned for.

In 2016, Luis’s other son Jordan joined the family business – not repairing dents, but doing “SMART repairs”.  This is a process by which minor cosmetic paint damage like scuffs and scratches can be repaired by a mobile workshop.  This is a win win for the busy customer, they save time and money.

In 2019 we employed experienced vehicle paint technician Mark Loftus to meet demand on the SMART repair side of the business.

Throughout 2021 we took on more technicians and expanded our areas covered beyond North West London.  We are now approved to work on electric and hybrid vehicles.

We are now a team of eight:  three highly skilled dent technicians and five top class painters, all working together throughout London and the surrounding areas to keep your vehicle looking as good as new.
