 Looking for a quality panel beater in South East Melbourne?

What is Panel Beating?

As the name suggests, panel beating is the process of ‘beating’ the panels of a car back into its original shape following a collision.

What is our Panel Beating Process?

Before any repairs occur we must assess the extent of the damage to check whether there are any major structural damage (Sometimes when there is and the cost of fixing it may be more than than replacing a car, in which case our technicians will advise the best option for you).

Generally speaking, our process is as follows:

Step 1

You bring your car in and our staff will look at the car and give you a competitive quote. (Won’t be more than 5-10 minutes) 

Step 2

We will give you the best advice depending on your budget and needs. (for insurance claims – read here

Step 3

If you decide to get it done, we fix your car and get you back on the road as soon as possible. (Loan cars available)

What is the Cost of a Panel Beater in Melbourne?

The cost of panel beating depends on the size of the job. It may be a couple hundred dollars for a few scratches on your front bumper to thousands if you’ve been involved in a more serious accident.

If you have comprehensive insurance and the damage caused was your fault. I.e. You reversed into someone else car. Then you are able to make a claim and the insurance will pay for the damages of your car but you will probably need to pay an excess fee. And it’s likely the other party will want to make a claim too. You can read more about insurance claims here.

Depending on the cost of damage and your insurance excess you may opt to get your car privately repaired, so you can keep your clean history and avoid premium insurance rates.

  • My car looks good as new!

    I had a very bad scratch and dent on the left front door of my car due to a reversing accident. Went to a few mechanics and they said they were not able to repair, but could only replace the whole door which would cost more than a thousand dollars. K1 Motors not only said they could repair it at a reasonable price, but did a very impressive job in repairing it! There are no signs of scratches or dents anymore and my car looks good as new!

  • Finished all in Only 5 days (including a weekend)

    I have taken 2 of my cars to this workshop and both times were absolutely satisfied. My car was hit by someone and needed to replace the whole front door. It was estimated to be done in at least 2 weeks. However, Alan and his team have finished all in only 5 days (including a weekend). That was amazing! 

    Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for an auto workshop due to its efficiency and dedication!

  • He explained the required repairs very clearly

    Alan repaired both our cars and did a great job at a reasonable price. He explained the required repairs very clearly and had the cars repaired much earlier than expected. Highly recommend
