What is Panel Beating?

For those who are new to the world of vehicles and auto body repairs, panel beating may sound like a strange type or repair (if it even sounds like a ‘repair’ term). However, for vehicle owners who have undergone auto body repairs or collision repair in Marickville or any other area for that matter, panel beating is a pretty common term.
Put simply, panel beating is the basic process of repairing, restoring, or refurbishing a dented or damaged vehicle panel and is employed by many reputable Inner West smash repairs shop or any other smash repairs in Balmain and other areas. In other countries like the USA for example, this same process is referred to as auto body repair, and is performed by auto body mechanics or panel beaters or trained individuals who literally ‘beat’ the dented or damaged steel panels of a vehicle to restore it to its pre-accident condition. The job of a panel beater may also include making general improvements on the vehicle’s overall aesthetics. Thus, panel beaters also dabble with repainting, sanding, filling, and buffing out damaged on uneven surfaces after they have been beaten back to their original shape.
In many cases, panel beaters will also work with insurance companies in order to determine the costs and coverage of the repair and the damage, as is the case with YOUI insurance repairs, A&G insurance repairs, and GIO insurance repairs for instance.
