In life, accidents happen. We can’t avoid every bump and scrape life throws at us, but we can be proactive in how we respond to them. At Al-Futtaim Lexus, we understand that most used cars have the occasional sign of an accident here and there. Our bodywork and repair technicians are skilled in using the latest techniques and processes to make those signs virtually disappear. Let’s take a quick look at how a Lexus workshop can provide you with expert accident and body repair services.
The most obvious sign of an accident, even a small bump or scrape, is damage to the bodywork, particularly the paint. Sometimes, the only way to remove the signs of an accident is to return to bare metal.
At Lexus, our state-of-the-art 5* ESMA-certified facilities use the latest equipment to repair damaged panels and paint. Three key services are offered: Agency Repair, Paintless Dent Repair, and Smart Repair.
Suppose you have been involved in an accident, and your insurance company is required to authorise repairs. In that case, you must insist that Al-Futtaim Lexus is the only option to carry out repairs on your Lexus, whether it's a brand-new SUV or a Pre-Owned sedan. At Al-Futtaim Lexus, we only use genuine replacement parts, and our specially-trained technicians follow the manufacturer's recommended repair methods, including paint matching and body repairs.
As a result, you get a perfect paint match and body repair that makes any sign of an accident vanish, restoring your vehicle’s condition and retaining a much better resale value. While any major repairs will appear on the car’s history, the fact that it has been done by Al-Futtaim, the only authorised body and paint repair agent for Lexus in the UAE, will ensure that its value is not compromised. All paint and body repairs carry a two-year guarantee for total peace of mind.
It's also worth noting that having body and paint repairs carried out at a non-approved Lexus repair shop could invalidate your warranty.
SMART, or Small and Medium Area Repair Technique, is a clever way of making those smaller bumps and dents vanish without respraying or painting. SMART repairs can be used to tackle scuffs and scrapes, too, including those annoying kerbside mishaps that can scratch your alloy wheels. Technicians can carry out SMART repairs using specialist techniques, usually on the same day.
Because these are very minor body repairs, there is often no need to make an insurance claim. Because the repair is also superficial, it will not appear on your car's history and will not affect its value. That also protects your No Claims Discount with your insurance company – yet another reason to choose Al-Futtaim Lexus to carry out your minor bodywork and paint repairs.
PDR is a way of removing small dents in the bodywork of your Lexus without the need for respraying. As long as the paint surface is intact (often the case with a minor dent), the blemish can be 'pulled' out without compromising your vehicle's finish. PDR can be used for various issues and can be applied to steel and aluminium, making it practical and applicable for nearly any body panel on your Lexus. The shallower the dent, the better the chance that PDR can restore your Lexus to its original condition without extra bodywork or spraying.
If you’ve had a minor incident that has blemished your Lexus’ smooth lines and sleek profile, contact Al-Futtaim Lexus today and let our expert technicians use the latest techniques to get your Lexus looking flawless once again.
