How we do what we do
Our process helps reduce time from initial claim right through to returning the car to you…
Claim is allocated to ASG
Depending on the size of the event, the assessment and the strategy your insurer employs to manage the storm, will determine whether ASG contacts you directly or if your assessment is booked by your insurer.
If you are unsure, please contact your insurance provider to ascertain how the assessments will occur. Alternatively place a call to our Customer Support Team on 1800 063 368
The support team members will have details provided by your Insurer and will be able to provide you with the relevant information to guide you through the next steps.
Once we have completed an assessment on your vehicle, a quote for repair along with digital images will be submitted to your insurer for their review.
Action Smart Group will contact you to arrange a suitable repair date and discuss the estimate time frame for the repair to be undertaken.
The scope of work required to your vehicle determines how long the duration of the repairs will generally take.

- What is PDR?
PDR, or paintless dent repair, is a method of repair used to repair dents without need for fillers or paintwork.
The process uses a variety of specialised tools that manipulate metal or aluminum back to its original form.
This significantly reduces the repair times in comparison to traditional smash repair methods, ensuring vehicles are off the road for a fraction of the time.
- What are the benefits of PDR?
1. Less invasive repair compared to traditional repair methods.
2. Retains the original panels and the original paint.
3. Faster repair time (up to 5 days) and hence less time off the road.
4. Environmentally friendly repairs.
- What are combination repairs?
Where PDR is not a viable repair option due to the severity of damage, the panel will be repaired with a ‘combination’ of repairs and paint, or panel replacement. Action Smart Group have the resources and facilities to provide “Combination Repairs” as part of our end-to-end solution.
- How long will my vehicle be off the road?
This will depend on the extent of damage and method of repair, as well as parts availability.
As a guide, PDR can take up to 5 days, small combination repairs may take approximately 10 days, and more severe combination repairs with multiple panel repair/replacements may take up to 4 weeks. *
To streamline the process, we check parts availability before scheduling your vehicle for repairs. However, as we are relying on third party suppliers, there can be unforeseen delays out of our control. We will communicate this with you and discuss how it will affect your repairs.
The benefit to our customers is that repairs are uninterrupted, and completely managed by us in-house, achieving consistent quality.
All repairs completed by Action Smart Group will be provided with a lifetime warranty on the repairs.**
