A. Alloy Wheel Refubishment completed at our Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Centre in Bromley (Kent) is the full package. It is not a temporary surface repair, which is what a mobile repair limits you to. Cosmetically a mobile repair is ok at the time of repair, although (depending on the size of the damage) it is essentially a masking processs, akin to “papering over the cracks”. Over time, the difference will be told. Our process is a stringent process which includes, stripping the wheel from all previous coatings as part of the preparation; shot blasting and powder coating. The level of repair and finish you can get from a mobile repair in 30-45 mins is incomparable to the 2-3 days of meticulous work that goes into the workshop wheel refurbishment & painting process.
A. On-site 2-3 days to fully strip, blast and paint. Mobile: Usually 30-45mins per alloy wheel depending on size and damage.

A. yes we do need access to a power supply so we can plug in our extension lead , we have around 50-70 meters of cable

A. It does help us assess the damage better when the wheels are clean, but its not essential.
A. We say try to leave them for at least 2 days and there’s nothing better than a bit of soapy water. (Avoid using acid based liquids)
A. If your wheels have metal valves and tyre pressure sensors we are generally able to remove and refit them if they are in good condition and not damaged or corroded. However if they require reprogramming or remapping we are unable to do this, and you will need to have this done by a specialist. We will take reasonable care when handling these items but we cannot accept liability for any damage during the repair process.
