SMART CARE - COSMETIC DAMAGE PROTECTION
HELPING KEEP YOUR CAR IN SHOWROOM CONDITION
It’s hard to beat that new car feeling — the first time you drive a pristine and unmarked motor on the road for the first time. Sadly though, with the real world, it’s hard for any car to stay perfect forever. Potholes, cramped car parks and busy roads can leave our new cars with dents, scuffs and stone chips at the least.
In the past, you may have paid to take your car to the body shop or made an insurance claim. But what if we can show you a way of keeping that showroom feel without having to pay, or risk losing your motor insurance no-claims bonus for a small repair?
If you wanted to sort any of these out before, you may have to make an expensive trip to a body shop or claim it on your insurance. But now, with Yeomans SMART Care, you can keep your car looking as good as new without breaking the bank.
SMART Care is a ‘Small and Medium Area Repair Technique’ and makes use of the latest paint technology, alloy wheel refurbishment and paintless dent removal processes to restore your car to its showroom shine.
It only takes one call to arrange for expert repairs which usually take less than a day to carry out, meaning you can quickly get back on the road. It is the ‘SMART’ way to help keep your car in immaculate condition, protect your insurance no claims bonus and maximise its resale value when you’re ready to move into a new vehicle.
