For many of our customers in Southampton and Hampshire, a car represents a considerable investment that only comes second to buying a home. This explains why accidental damage can be heart-breaking and inconvenient in equal measures. Our friendly workshop performs bodywork repairs to bring the panels of damaged vehicles back to an original condition on a private basis, or accident repairs for major insurance companies as part of a claim.
For those in Southampton who are looking to finish a project such as a colour change, we offer a full car respray service using a combination of water and solvent-based materials.
Salek’s Motors utilises the talents of time-served body fitters, panel beaters and refinishers, all of whom work as a part of our ever-expanding team. As anybody with an insight into the trade will testify, the key to professional bodywork repairs is solid preparation. That’s why we use modern processes that not only get the job done to a high standard, but which also reduce the spread of harmful volatile organic compounds to protect the environment.
When you book in for cosmetic and accident repairs at our fully-equipped garage on Wilson Street in Southampton, you do so under the care of a caring and considerate company. Please contact us on 02380 335876 to arrange an estimate or come and visit us personally.
We have the facilities and the experience needed to cover everything from partial bodywork repairs on the corner of a plastic bumper to a full car respray. Our Southampton workshop makes use of low-bake oven facilities to keep the spraying area clear from airborne debris, to reduce the amount of overspray produced and to shorten drying times for a faster repair. Where required, we blend into adjacent panels to achieve a perfect colour match.
Most modern bodywork repairs see damaged panels restored by a skilled tradesman or completely replaced. Once prepped, the car respray process sees water-based paint applied to form the colour and solvent-based lacquer used to create a protective gloss finish.
In the case of accident repairs, we liaise directly with insurance companies and assessors to alleviate much of the stress some of our Southampton or Hampshire customers experience after a collision. In the case of non-fault accidents, we provide a full management service and keep you updated on the progress of bodywork repairs. Upon completion of the agreed work, we clean and valet your vehicle before handing it back to you in showroom condition.
Our operatives cut and polish full or partial car respray finishes to eliminate any minor imperfections. A manager inspects all repaired bodywork to ensure it meets company and industry standards, and we never pass a car back to a customer if we aren’t 100% satisfied with our workmanship. This assures the customer of the best repair and paint finish.
Our facilities in Southampton house a modern 3D wheel alignment system with LASER assistance to ensure cars drive straight and safely after large-scale accident repairs.
