We are an established business that has been repairing minor bodywork damage for  both domestic and commercial vehicle owners throughout Devon.

Based in Newton Abbot, we offer repairs to minor bodywork damage and a full range of services to many clients from Torquay, Paignton and Brixham and across South Devon.

“What type of damage can you repair?”

We offer a fast and affordable repair service for minor to moderate damage. We can repair damaged bumpers (body-coloured or textured), paintwork scratches or vandalism, small dents, scratches and scuffs on bumpers or wing mirrors, alloy wheel repair, stone chips, car park dents.

We can even fix previous poor damage repair attempts.

“Do you offer a mobile service?”

No. Our services are too in demand to be limited to one man on the road. We have a fully trained team, the latest equipment and technology, all based at our large workshop on the Decoy Industrial Estate.  We are easy to find and accessible for clients from all over South Devon, including Newton Abbot, Torquay, Paignton, Brixham.

We have a courtesy car available if necessary.

How long will it take, can you do the repairs whilst I wait?”

Good work takes time! Whilst a bumper scuff or alloy repair can be turned around within 1 working day anything larger will require us to have your vehicle for 2-3 days, but remember we have a free courtesy car whilst your vehicle is with us.

How much will it cost?”

There are many factors that affect the price of a repair including the size and colour of the vehicle, as well as the damage involved.


As all repairs differ greatly, we really need to see the damage to be able to give you an estimate. There is no need to waste a day driving round for quotes or phoning lots of different centres, just take a quick photo of the damage and send us the details via our quote request form, we will promptly get back to you with a price.

Alternatively pop in to our workshop in Newton Abbot, and our technicians can assess your vehicle in person.

Will I need to claim on my insurance?”

That depends on your insurance excess, it may be more cost effective to ask us for a price first.

If you do need to make a claim however, you should always remember, it is your car and your choice of where you have it repaired.

The Office of Fair Trading, Association of British Insurers and Financial Services Authority all agree that its your right to choose who repairs your car.

Are you able to repair / replace windscreens?”

Small chips in your windscreen can produce secondary cracks if not repaired quickly. This can affect the integrity of your windscreen and potentially become dangerous.  Windscreen repairs are a preferred solution, rather than windscreen replacement, for saving moey and time. We work with expert windscreen repair technicians who will, wherever possible, repair your damaged windscreen. If the windscreen is beyond repair, then we can arrange to fit a replacement windscreen, as well as side or rear windows.

Here at AutoArt will arrange and organise everything for you so you are still only dealing with us, we have made it as simple as possible for you.

“Can you match any colour?

We can match any factory colour, your car will have its own paint code reference, which is located somewhere in your car.  We use this reference with computer aided paint mixing, which allows us to match the colour of your vehicle.

“My car is a lease car, and has a couple of scratches, can you fix these before I have to return it?

If you return your vehicle to the leasing company with any minor damage, it is likely that you will be charged for the repairs. These charges are generally at an inflated premium and may have a minimum charge, regardless of the damage. You can get your car repaired by us for a fraction of the cost before you return it and avoid the charges!
