Common Questions and Answers About Smash Repairs

How much do smash repairs cost?

Most car smash repairs are unfortunately quite expensive as there is extensive labour and materials involved in removing parts, repairing them, respraying the paint to get a factory finish and then refitting the parts back on. In many cases paint blending on surrounding panels is also required so the smash repairs are not noticeable when compared to the surrounding panels. The extent of damage and where it’s located on the car can also impact the cost. On average we see smash repair costs between $250 to $500 for each damaged panel and each additional surrounding panel that requires paint blending. That being said it’s our mission at DingGo to find you the best smash repairer at the best price. Why not let us find you the best price for your panel beating?

Mascot Smash Repairs
The team at Mascot Smash Repairs were excellent to deal with. Communication was brilliant - we had to reschedule drop off due to a public holiday and they called me well in advance to make sure I wasn’t inconvenienced. They also completed the work earlier than anticipated. The new parts were perfect - my car has never looked so good. All in all an easy experience. Highly recommended!
