Smash Repairs is a broad term used to describe the act of smash repairing automotive vehicles, like cars, vans, trucks, bikes or even boats, that have been damaged in an accident. Usually, this is some form of collision, which leads to another similar term for smash repairs, ‘collision repairs’. If that isn’t confusing enough the formal name of the people that are qualified to do smash repairs and collision repairs are called panel beaters, and you guessed it, the third term for the exact same thing is called
panel beating. In short smash repairs, collision repairs and panel beating are effectively the exact same thing, and all involve the process of repairing your car after an accident.

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?
