At Sandal, we use the very latest repair techniques, Genuine MINI Parts, paint and specialist equipment that conforms to MINI’s strict tolerances to ensure that, following an accident, your pride and joy is restored to its original EURO NCAP safety rating and you can continue your MINI adventure.

Many people are under the impression that it’s their insurance company that must choose where their car is repaired after an accident, but this isn’t the case. While your insurer may suggest one of their preferred body repairers, you are fully entitled to request that your MINI is repaired by the people who know it best – a MINI Approved Bodyshop, at no extra cost to you.


Dent Removal: When repairing smaller dents, costly re-spray costs can be avoided thanks to the Paintless Dent Removal System – cutting edge technology that enables us to achieve impressive results.

Scratch Repair: Scratches can sometimes be unavoidable. Using advanced technology and paint application methods, our highly qualified Bodyshop technicians are able to restore your vehicle’s surface finish to its original state with a minimum of fuss.

Alloy Wheel Repair: Small scuffs and scratches to your alloy wheels can often be repaired and may not require a replacement wheel.

Glass Repair: Even if it's minor, stone chip damage to your windscreen is more than just a distraction. MINI can save you both time and money, as we can normally repair your windscreen within half an hour.

Machine Polish: The orbital machine polisher is used to remove road tar, fine scratches and light paintwork blemishes often collected over the winter months. The result: colour and gloss levels are restored and ongoing maintenance is much easier.

We may even be able to give you an estimate if your upload your photos here.
