Accident Repairs and Dent Repairs in Sittingbourne | The Difference Between an Auto Body Shop and Auto Mechanic Shop Explained

To some drivers, an auto mechanic shop and a body shop sound like the same thing. While they are similar and services may overlap, there are often key differences that separate them. Prestige PanelCraft & Servicing Ltd in Rainham specialises in car body repairs and crash repairs, delivering a stress-free experience for all insurance approved car repairs. Whether you need accident repairs after a smash on the Sittingbourne roads or require dent repairs after parking outside a store, we deliver a high-quality restoration service.

Call us if you notice a scratch or need crash repairs in the local region. Otherwise, read on to see what sets an auto repair shop apart from a car body repairs workshop.

Dent Repairs | What Is an Auto Body Shop?

By understanding the differences between the two, you will know who to contact if an accident happens in the Sittingbourne area. This also applies to drivers looking for someone who can remove the strain from insurance approved car repairs.

A body shop like Prestige PanelCraft & Servicing Ltd can fix any problem relating to the exterior, as well as any non-moving components. The most common repairs we perform for drivers from Sittingbourne include:

• Crash repairs and accident repairs
• Scratch, bumper and dent repairs
• Panel repair and replacements
• Windshield replacement work
• Alloy wheel refurbishments
• Paintwork for an ‘as new’ finish

The best body shops will undertake car body repairs and accident repairs using traditional panel beating as well as SMART repairs and paintless dent repairs (PDR). Our crash repairs team carries out insurance approved car repairs, delivers specialist work for Hyundai vehicles, and also performs car servicing with vehicle diagnostics that plug directly in your car’s ECU.

Auto Mechanic Shops

Mechanic shops will typically undertake regular maintenance and car repairs, more specifically for moving parts. Their work may include brake repairs, exhaust and engine repairs. They will also provide oil and filter changes when servicing vehicles to help keep them running smoothly. Much like our car body repairs team, they need specialist skills to ensure the best results for your Sittingbourne vehicle.

Contact Prestige PanelCraft & Servicing Ltd

Our technicians in Rainham offer a comprehensive bodywork service for all the accident repairs, dent repairs, and insurance approved car repairs that you need. Unlike similar body shops that may serve drivers from around Sittingbourne, we can provide you with a free courtesy car and manage the process with your insurer when undertaking crash repairs.

Beyond car body repairs, we also perform car servicing, which reduces the need to visit another workshop each year. If you’re still unsure of the services we provide, reach out to a member of our team with your questions. As a family-run business, we will be happy to hear from you.
