A re­li­able point of call for cars

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

CARS – they’re our pride and joy, our trans­port from A to B and they’re re­lied upon by many lo­cals.

But when some­thing hap­pens to your car and it needs to be fixed, the ques­tion arises of where to get it fixed.

Look no fur­ther than Air­lie Beach Smash Re­pairs.

The team cov­ers all ar­eas of mo­tor ve­hi­cle re­pairs such as smash re­pairs, in­sur­ance work, restora­tions, cus­tom body work, rust re­pairs, rust­proof­ing, fi­bre­glass re­pairs, plas­tic weld­ing, lead wip­ing, file fin­ish­ing and spray on ute lin­ings.

Lo­cated at 3/8 Wil­liam Mur­ray Dr, Can­non­vale, Air­lie Beach Smash Re­pairs is a lo­cal, fam­ily owned busi­ness, fo­cussing on high qual­ity re­pairs and get­ting driv­ers back on the road as quickly as pos­si­ble.

What started as a hobby many years ago, soon turned into a pro­fes­sion for the fa­ther and son team, Russell and Chris Ross, who to­gether have more than 50 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the in­dus­try and are fully tick­eted and qual­i­fied.

Their ex­pe­ri­ence cov­ers a broad range of clas­sic cars, mo­tor ve­hi­cles, boats, trucks, he­li­copters and aero­planes. Their com­bined pro­fes­sions of panel beater, spray painter, automotive TAFE teacher and NRMA as­ses­sor have ticked all the boxes to be a lead­ing smash re­pairer in the Whit­sun­days.

Re­nee is wel­com­ing in the front of­fice and her back­ground is also quite ex­ten­sive in the mo­tor ve­hi­cle in­dus­try.

Since open­ing in 2012, the team have worked on a large range of jobs, from mo­tor ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dents, restora­tions, carpark dam­age and scratches, kan­ga­roo and en­vi­ron­men­tal dam­age, rust re­pairs or tidy­ing ve­hi­cles up for sale.

Air­lie Beach Smash Re­pairs also works with all in­sur­ance com­pa­nies and their asses­sors.

They stock the lat­est and high­est tech­nol­ogy such as au­torobot align­ing and mea­sur­ing sys­tems, vac­uum dust­less sys­tems, elec­tronic paint spec­tro, a com­put­erised paint mix­ing sys­tem and a low bake fully down-draft spray booth.

The team prides them­selves on their strong re­la­tion­ships with clients and sup­pli­ers and em­brac­ing new tech­nol­ogy and tech­niques as a way of mov­ing forward.

The busi­ness of­fers free quotes, full or half restora­tions, mo­bile es­ti­mat­ing by ap­point­ment, off-street park­ing, con­tracted tilt tray for pick-up of restora­tion work and pref­er­ences to lo­cal in­te­rior trim­mers, mo­tor me­chan­ics, parts sup­pli­ers, wind­screen re­pairs and tint­ing ser­vices.
