Rain water leaking into a car car ~ The Renault Clio is well know for leaks, usually it's the sun roof, but this example had a different problem. We set about trying to find why water was leaking into the car and soaking the carpets.
What to do when you have spilt paint in your car ~ Using wet towels to keep the paint from drying will make a clean-up easier. Once the spilt paint has dried everything becomes so much harder, parts may need replacing and these could take a long time to arrive.

Either way if you bring your car to us we will get to work straight away meaning you will get your car back far more quickly than you would making a normal insurance claim.
D.I.Y. Car Paint Spillage Clean ~ If the paint is water based emulsion, then it is possible to clean up a paint spillage by mopping up, then slowly diluting and vacuum up the paint.

Car Scratch Repair We can remove all kinds of scratches from those light swirl marks, to deep gouges on the corners of bumpers. Some scratches polish out, while others need filling and painting, but rest assured we have a service to remove your scratch.
Chip Repair Cars that do lots of motorway miles can pick up dozens, if not hundred of stone chips. Each chip in it's self is usually so small that people tend to overlook this kind of damage and just accept it as inevitable. But having stone chips repaired with the correctly matched paint can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of your car.
Chips can also lead to rust which can be the beginning of the end for your car - so even one should be viewed as a problem that needs addressing - read our stone chip article.

Valeting & Car Care Trade secrets - Tip of the Day
Car Survival Kit - The chances of being trapped in a snow drift for several days are pretty slim in Britain, but a car survival kit can help protect your car from bargains! Are the kind of person that pops out for a loaf of bread and comes home with bedding plants and a gazebo? If you are, the we strongly recommend that you find space in the boot of your car for the following items: a couple of black bin liners, some plastic sheeting, an old towel and a travel blanket. It seems that on the first few hot and sunny days of the year, lots of you rush down to B&Q and buy yourselves house paint or fence paint, and this is when disaster strikes for a great many people! Paint tins are not vacuum sealed, they contain air, and you take the tin from a cool air conditioned building and place it in a hot car. The air and paint expands and there is a good chance that the lid will pop off before you manage to get home. During the spring and early summer, we see as many as 3 cars a week with boots or foot wells full of paint, varnish, lacquer and wood stain!
