Alloy Wheel Refurbishment -- Mobile Service Vs. Traditional Body Shops

Patricia Lanford

If you have alloy wheels on your car, you know just how much style they add. It's also an investment in your vehicle and will help increase the car's overall value. However, when those wheels become dented, dinged, or scratched, their value decreases. In addition, those once beautiful wheels can become an eyesore.

It wasn't too long ago that you had to simply replace alloy wheels that were damaged. That has changed. Today, alloy wheel refurbishment allows specially trained technicians to repair the damage on alloy wheels. Most of the companies that offer alloy wheel repair are mobile services. With fully stocked mobile workshops, the technicians come to your home or place of work. The repair is done right in your driveway or parking lot. It takes about an hour to repair each alloy wheel. The process is not simple and should not be attempted by anyone who is not properly trained. When done correctly, your alloy wheel will actually be stronger than it was before the repair. However, if it is done improperly, the repaired area will be visible and the wheel may not hold up to any further abuse.

Alloy wheel repair requires that a technician use a specially designed grinder to remove the damaged area. Next, an epoxy is used to fill in the spots where the grinder was used. This is what makes your wheel so strong after the repair. The epoxy is allowed to dry, and then it is sanded flat with the rest of the wheel. Finally, the wheel is painted and the repair is complete. What is nice about the mobile alloy wheel repair services is that your wheel stays on your vehicle. It's what saves you time and money in the repair.

Most of the alloy wheel refurbishment companies provide free quotes for their services and usually offer a wide array of other services, as well. Some of those services might include dent and bumper repair, car seat repair, and minor paint repair. There are often specials for those who request two repairs at once, which can end up saving you even more money. Alloy wheel repair costs about half of what it would cost to replace a damaged wheel. You don't have to leave your car at a repair facility, either, and wait for a call to tell you the repair is done. These are just a few of the advantages that mobile alloy wheel refurbishment has when compared to traditional body shop repairs.

Are your alloy wheels damaged, dinged, or dented? Alloy wheel refurbishment is the fasest and cheapest way to get your wheels looking fantastic again. Newport alloy wheel refurbishment can take care of your wheels' imperfections. Check out alloy wheel refurbishment Newport today!
