Depending on the size of the event the assessment 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, or contact one of our professional team members who will be in a position to provide you with the relevant information – PH; 1800 063 368.
Once we have completed an assessment on your vehicle, the quote and digital images will be submitted to your insurer for their review and we will provide you with a book in date for your repairs to be undertaken.
Once you drop your vehicle off for the repairs to commence, we allocate your vehicle to a technician, who undertakes the repairs to your vehicle. The scope of work required to your vehicle determines how long the duration of the repairs will generally take.
Repair Time Guides
PDR: (Paintless Dent Repairs) – between 3-5 working days;
PDR simply describes the method of removing dents from the body of a motor vehicle. Our technicians complete this by massaging the underside of the panel to remove the dent and returning the metal to its original form.
Combination repairs: between 7-10 working days;
A combination repair means that we intend on repairing your vehicle utilising the PDR method, although we have also identified that either there is cracked paint or some of the dents on your vehicle are too sharp and therefore are not suitable for PDR. In these instances some painting is required to reinstate your vehicle to a pre-event condition.
Once your repairs have been completed, your vehicle undergoes the refitting process, a Quality Assessment is carried out to ensure all required repairs have been completed, all replacement parts have been fitted and a complementary wash and vac occurs in preparation for you to collect your vehicle.
We provide you with a lifetime warranty on your repairs – as long as you own the vehicle.
Excess payments may be made by Eftpos or electronic transfer.
Please contact us if there is anything else you would like to know.

What is PDR?
PDR, or paintless dent repair, is a method of repair used to repair hail damaged dents without need for fillers or paintwork.
The process uses a variety of specialised tools that manipulate metal or aluminium 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?
- Less invasive repair compared to traditional repair methods.
- Retains the original panels and the original paint.
- Faster repair time (up to 5 days) and hence less time off the road.
- Environmentally friendly repairs.
What is combination repairs?
Where PDR is not possible or a viable repair option, Action Smart Group have the tools and equipment to provide panel replacement and paint solutions referred to as “Combination Repairs”.
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 and paintwork may take approximately 10 days.*
More severe damage, repairs with multiple panel repair/replacements may take up to 4 weeks.*
