AutoRestore increases mobile repair capability

Mobile repairer AutoRestore can now repair at least 30% of all accident damage after creating a system to repair damaged horizontal panels.

The system means a single technician can remove, paint, dry and refit a bonnet or boot, as well as repairing further damaged panels, in a day.

It works by enabling each technician to attach a specially adapted support stand to the damaged panel allowing it to be swivelled into a vertical position during the painting and drying process.

AutoRestore estimates that it will increase the potential scope of work that they can undertake by up to 10%, meaning that overall, AutoRestore can now repair at least 30% of all accident damage on a mobile basis, and in many cases that number could be substantially more.

The system was developed by Melvin Rolling, AutoRestore’s technical director, in response to customer requests to increase the scope of AutoRestore’s mobile repair capability.
