  • What is a SMART repair?
    SMART repair is an acronym for ‘small to medium area repair technique’. While there is no formal definition of what ‘small’ means in this instance Revive! specialise in minor repairs up to and including a single panel.
  • How do you achieve quality repairs outside?
    Technicians are trained to the highest standards and are used to working outside in most weathers.  They will make an assessment of the conditions they are expected to work in and will only take on repairs that can be completed to a professional level.
  • How do you match paint colours?
    Colours are mixed and matched on site using the same tinters and systems that are used in top bodyshops, but in smaller quantities.  This allows for a precision repair and at the same time is much kinder to the environment.
  • Do you remove dents?
    No – small dents can be filled but we do not use methods to pop dents out.  We do however have associates across the country who can complete paintless dent removal (PDR) and we can liaise with them if required.
  • Do you have someone near me?
    Revive! is one of the largest networks in the UK and covers the vast majority of the country. Click on our ‘Find my nearest technician’ link to see your local repairer.
  • How much does a repair usually cost?
    While estimates can be given from a distance, full damage assessment can only be carried out on viewing a vehicle. What you can be certain of is that the repair cost will be substantially lower than any quote from a traditional bodyshop. Click on the ‘Quick quote’ link and identify the area of your car that is damaged for a quick and easy way to get a rough assessment of what your repair would cost.
  • Are your methods safe?
    At Revive! we comply with all health and safety and environmental legislation.
