SMART Scratch Repairs
Small to Medium Area Repair Technology (in short, SMART) car body repairs entail that scratch repair services are done mobile, at the convenience of your home. We can carry out the scratch repair without needing to remove or paint the entire panel, focusing our efforts on the damaged area.
Our expert technicians will be able to accurately blend the repair and to guarantee an excellent, accurate result. Our artisans have over 500 years of cumulate experience and will cross-check the colour they use against the manufacturer’s original colour code specification to guarantee that the colour matches perfectly.
The combination of our artisans' skills, along with a trialled and tested technique for scratch repair will ensure that the colour and texture of your panel be restored back to its original condition.
How to Fix a Scratch
Step 1 - Clean the affected area
The technician will need a clean area to be able to repair the scratch properly. This is required to ensure that any paint scratches are clear from dirt and visible.
Step 2 - Masking and Prepping
Once the affected area is cleaned, the repairer will isolate the scratch from the rest of the panel by applying a mask. This ensures that only the scratched panel will be affected by the repair, and will avoid the repairer having to paint the entire panel.
Step 3 - Sanding
The technician will use various grades of sanded paper to remove paint from the affected area. This process ensures that the scratch is effectively sanded away and the affected area can be painted to match the rest of the panel.
Step 4 - Apply filler if needed
For deeper scratches the technician will apply a special filler that will allow them to smoothen the affected area and completely remove the damage.
Step 5 - Paint and Cure
Once the filler has cured, the technician will proceed to sand the affected area, apply the base paint and finish the car with a final coat of paint. Nearly all modern vehicles use a two part, base coat/clear coat paint system, with the base coat needing a clear over the top of it to produce the proper sheen and protect it from UV rays from the sun.
Scratch Repair FAQ
What is SMART repair and how does it work?
SMART Repair is a process that allows our technicians to separate the scratched area of a panel from the rest of the panel, and only repair/paint the affected area. This technique allows for more cost effective and more eco-friendly repairs. Take a look at the How To section for details on the process.
Will my colour match?
Since the technician only repairs a portion of the panel, a concern for most clients is whether they will be left with a car scratch repair that does not match the colour of the rest of the panel. Axioma repairers all have years of experience working with car paint repairs. They will use the manufacturer's paint code, a special tool called a spectrophotometer and their artisanal experience to ensure that the affected area is blended into the rest of the panel.
How do I care for my scratched panel after its been repaired?
We recommend to wait about 5 days before washing the affected area or polishing it. Your expert technician will be on site to give you their exact suggestions depending on the situation.
How Much Does a Scratch Repair Cost?
We don’t provide a pricing grid, however, for bumper scuffs / scrapes you are likely to pay between £130 and £180 depending on damage and location. Panel damage will typically range between £160 and £230 depending on location and severity.

"Fantastic job on a Mercedes C43 AMG. Dent and scratches fixed to perfection. Brilliant customer service from Alex and unbelievably professional job done by Rob. Great price too. The quality of service and job provided well outperforms the price that is about 50% cheaper than competitors as I have had several quotes before I decided to use Axioma. Highly recommended."
"It was quick, easy and affordable. I uploaded the photos and they quoted me for a fraction of the price that my local bodyshop gave me. Tommy came after just a few days of booking and repaired the dent and scratches silently and voila! It was like there wasnt anything there!"
"Cheaper than other quotes I received, followed up with a professional, trust-worthy and thorough service on a scratch and dent on my car. Very happy."
