Small scratches, scuffs and dents are not only unsightly, but have a negative effect on the value of your car. In the past, cars in need of cosmetic repair would have been sent to a conventional body shop, meaning that you would be without your car while the repair work took place, and potentially facing a large bill. Thankfully, many small scratches, scuffs and dents can be repaired using SMART techniques.
The SMART repair concept was originally created to offer the motor industry a fast, cost-effective solution to assist in the cosmetic repair of used vehicles. SMART Repair Insurance now lets you take advantage of this new solution to ensure your vehicle looks as good as new by repairing minor bumps and scratches as they happen. SMARTPlus will also cover your alloy wheels, should they be accidentally damaged through everyday motoring.
SMARTPlus Insurance will pick up these costs for up to 36 months, up to a maximum of £3,000 for bodywork repairs, and up to £1,500 for alloy wheel repairs.
All amounts quoted are inclusive of VAT.

YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW…
A SMART repair is one where the technician can typically complete the repair within two hours and will be to best endeavours. Where a SMART repair cannot be achieved, the vehicle will require a bodyshop repair which is not covered by this insurance policy.
All aftermarket repairs vary from that of an automotive factory finish, which is machine sprayed to a degree beyond that achievable by human capability.
