When cars are involved in accidents and not written off, they need to be fixed and that is where panel beating comes in.
What is Panel Beating?
It is essentially the professional skill and craft of repairing a car’s body using various techniques such as metal work, welding, planishing and putty filling. Depending on the amount of work, a panel beater might have to repair or replace the damaged parts of the vehicle altogether.
Are Panel Beaters necessary?
Very necessary. They do some very specialized and highly skilled work that you and I cannot do, no matter how good we may think we are with cars. Panel beaters spend years learning this craft and then they do practicals to put into practice all the theory learnt in the classroom.

If you’re involved in a car accident and your vehicle is not damaged beyond repair, meaning it’s not written off. In that instance, calling a panel beater would be the wisest thing to do.
It is important to check first for efficient and reliable panel beaters in your area before making a final decision. This is someone you’ll be entrusting with fixing your car, so you better make an informed decision.
