About Us

WHAT IS SMART REPAIR

Smart Repair (Small to Medium Repair Technique) is a series of fast, cost-effective cosmetic car repair techniques. Our Dubai Smart Repair Centers in Dubai and Abu Dhabi along with our mobile smart repair vans offer our customers a “one stop shop” solution for all paint, dent, interior and wheel repair in the Dubai and Abu Dhabi area.

Historically, damaged vehicles have been sent to traditional car repair bodyshops for all cosmetic repairs such as dents and car scratches – no matter how small.

 

Smart Repair offers customers a “repair not replace” philosophy via a series of innovative repair techniques that focus on small, economical and quick repair solutions to your car.

 

Smart Repair work, such as scratch repairpaint repairalloy wheel repair or dent repair, are typically no larger than a sheet of A4 paper and can be completed in approximately one hour. Each Smart repair is optimized for size and minimal material consumption therefore offering customers a significantly cheaper and faster repair option.
