Frequently Asked Questions
What areas do you cover?
Our mobile dent and SMART repair service operates throughout North West London, covering these postcodes: UB, HA, SL, NW, W, HD and HP. In some circumstances we may travel beyond these areas.
Will my car look as good as new after you’ve finished?
We promise you a high quality repair. Every bit of damage is different though so if, once we’ve seen it, we think we can’t repair the damage to a good enough finish we will inform you before the repair takes place.
How long will the repair take?
Every repair is different so we’ll need to see it before we can give you an idea of how long it will take.
Can you repair my car if it’s raining or windy?
Yes and no! Our team are used to working outside and most repairs can be done to the usual high standard during bad weather. We use a gazebo to keep the work area dry when it’s raining. If our technician feels that the weather isn’t appropriate for the repair, we will tell you beforehand.
Why does one of your vans say Flying Colours instead of A1 Dents & Smart Repairs?
Our SMART repair business is affiliated with DWV / Flying Colours, the UK’s largest smart repair network. We carry out cosmetic insurance repair work on their behalf using their branding, but you’re still dealing with us and our experienced team.
Shouldn’t car repairs be done in a bodyshop?
Our mobile service is for minor cosmetic damage – dings and dents, scuffs and scrapes, etc. All of these can be dealt with to a top standard by our mobile team. If you have accident damage, then you need a bodyshop. Once we’ve seen your damage, if we think we can’t repair it, we won’t.
Will one of your repairs void my warranty / lease / etc?
Minor cosmetic repairs do not impact your warranty or lease.

"Harley did a fantastic job on my BMW 1 Series, definitely saved me getting a big bill from a bodyshop would recommend." Kevin Rolfe, Camden
"I had a few scratches on my Mercedes A Class bumper which I bought two weeks ago. I gave Jordan a call who came out to my home and sprayed my bumper and brought it back to brand new. Jordan has done a fantastic job." Kelly Dpaul, Ealing
"A huge Thank you to Luis who has done a great job on my car. I would never have thought this dent could be repaired. According to my insurance it required a bodywork repair. But Luis just arrived to my work place and did a brilliant job; Quick and very professional. I'd highly reccomend." Aneta Dluglow, Hemel Hempstead
