Mobile Diamond Cut Division


In 2018, we invested in a state-of-the-art diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment plant at our Head Office in Orpington, allowing us to offer a three-day turnaround, factory finish to almost any damaged alloy wheel to dealerships and retail customers throughout the Southeast.

 With demand now at an all-time high, we have revolutionised this service with our new specialist mobile diamond-cut alloy wheel repair vans.

 Introduced in late 2023, this service is already proving to be a game-changer for the motor trade, allowing dealer groups to offer an on-site same-day diamond wheel cut repair service to their customers to boost their profits.

 The same-day service provides an instant fix for their customers, avoiding the loss of a car for three days whilst the repair is being made.

 With demand for the service growing, expansion is already planned into 2024 allowing more coverage to dealer groups across the country.
