Turners Auctions are opening of a new SMART [Small to Medium Area Repair Technology] Auto Centre at the company's main site in Penrose.

The concept is based on a model used in the United Kingdom which uses the latest technologies to repair vehicles much faster, and to a higher standard than traditional motor vehicle repairers.

Services offered at the Auto Centre will include repairs for:
1. stone chips (on both the bodywork and windscreens),
2. damage in upholstery,
3. scuffs on alloy wheels,
4. dents using Paintless Dent Repair [PDR] systems,
5. paint scratches using micro repairs,
6. light mechanical repairs and grooming services.

The Turners Smart Centre also plans to be the first Paint and Panel workshop in New Zealand using waterborne paints which are now commonly used in Europe. Waterborne paints are more environmentally friendly than traditional solvent based paints and additionally provide a safer working area for the spray painters using them.

Turners Auctions directors believe that the onsite repair centre will complement its existing business by focusing on prompt and economical repairs for customers who are either buying or selling vehicles from its auctions. The centre will also play a key role in the refurbishment of vehicles for the Turners Certified program which is expected top be launched later in 2005.
