A Brief History


Managed by Phil Merritt (pictured below), Smart Car UK has been carrying out car body repairs in the Swindon area since 2006.

In what is a relatively short period of time, its success has meant that Smart Car UK has had to find new and larger premises on two separate occasions, simply to be able to cope with demand.

In 2019 Smart Car UK settled into its modern, custom-equipped premises at the Hawksworth Industrial Estate in Swindon.

Smart Car UK’s business model is based on providing high-quality repairs coupled with a competitive pricing structure.

Another ingredient of its success has been its staff. Most have been with the company for a number of years now, and bring to bear a wealth of experience within the car body repair industry.

Our Customers

Smart Car UK’s success has meant that its customer base now extends beyond Swindon, and stretches as far afield as Marlborough, Lambourn, Lechlade, Cirencester, Malmesbury, Royal Wootton Bassett and beyond.

Smart Car UK does not restrict its repair operation to any one particular sector, and has seen its business grow across a number of areas.

At the present time, work is equally split between preparing cars for Swindon’s local car showrooms and dealerships, with the remainder being private customers, local fleet owners and insurance work.

So whatever your needs do not hesitate to contact us. We simply enjoy repairing car bodywork and having satisfied customers.

Why we're SMART

SMART is in our name and in our logo

The word Smart Car in our company name can often confuse people who think it has something to do with the small and versatile car of the same name. Yes, we do actually repair Smart Cars, but that’s as a close as the association gets.

SMART actually stands for Small to Medium Area Repair Techniques. These repairs cover vehicle damage at the smaller end of the spectrum such as dents, dings, scuffs and scratches, usually sustained to bumpers, bonnets, panels, wheel arches, wing mirrors and even alloy wheels.

SMART repairs also include your car’s interior trim and upholstery. This means we can restore vinyl or leather seats and panels that may have cuts, tears, stains or discolouration, trim that has lifted, and even cigarette burns.

Because of our specialist expertise with SMART repairs, and our fully equipped workshop, it means Smart Car UK can usually repair a car in a shorter period of time, to a higher standard and the work carried out for less cost, than a non-specialised car body shop.

and we're not just SMART either

And we don’t just limit our body repairs to those in the SMART category either. We often carry out much larger repairs.
