The first step in the SMART Repair process is a very thorough A-Z manual and photographic check-in of your vehicle. For complete peace of mind, we remove all valuables and loose articles inside your vehicle for safekeeping in our secure storage room.


All painted panels are polished after final assembling to ensure the original factory paint finish.

At this stage all damaged panels are removed from the vehicle and our highly skilled and qualified team commences with the panel repair work using the latest top-of-the-line technology and equipment.  

After polishing is completed, our quick & efficient wash bay cleans & vacuums your vehicle.

Meticulous paint preparation is done on our state-of-the-art drive through preparation bay using high tech vacuum systems to eliminate dust and the latest infrared lighting to efficiently cure primer. Once we have washed & masked your vehicle, expert personnel carefully match each colour to each vehicle through a sophisticated computerised selection and mixing system. Forsman uses a waterborne paint system that combines easy application and safe use to produce excellent results and ensures the removal of dangerous toxins from the environment.   The final step in the SMART repair process is our quality control. A dedicated quality controller will put your vehicle through a final check to ensure the repairs was done meeting the strict repair standards set by motor manufacturers. Once our quality controller is completely satisfied with all repairs, polish and cleaning the client is contacted for collection.
