In many parts of Canada, it has been one of the worst Winters in recent memory. It’s tough on us, but it’s also less than ideal for your car’s delicate skin too!
The salt that has been sitting on the paintwork keeps the roads from being slippery, but it’s corrosive, and any chips and abrasions on the surface will quickly deteriorate and rust. Of course, all that ice and snow has done a great job at hiding any little indiscretions that may have occurred with a snow bank or worse.
The best thing you can do is keep your car as free of salt as possible, even though it may seem that it’s not worth cleaning it, as it’ll only get dirty again.
As we move towards Spring, feel free to drop into your local Colorworks Express Autobody location, we’ll rinse your car off and inspect it for free for you. If you have any issues with the paintwork, we’ll provide you with a no-obligation quotation to put it right.
After that, our advice is to give the vehicle a Spring coat of wax, which will help protect the paint from the equally damaging effects of the Sun, and re-energize the look of your pride and joy!

At Colorworks, we have been a well kept secret at car dealers for over 20 years. So, by being hidden behind the scenes and preparing dealer’s vehicles for resale, many of our private, or retail customers are learning the scope of our abilities. I am happy to explain to all our customers all of the levels of services we provide.
If you require a repair to an unsightly bumper scrape, then our mobile service is likely the best option for you. My self, or my team of highly skilled, mobile technicians can come to your home or work, and repair your bumper or fender scrape, right there in your driveway. Many of our customers do not want to go through their insurance for a minor scrape that they caused themselves, so I offer an affordable and very convenient mobile repair service that is often less than their deductible. If the customer has any uncertainty about what their options might be, I am available for a free estimate.
“What happens if the damage is larger than I can repair at their home”? Sometimes the damage is quite large, and if we can meet the customer’s expectations, then we will proceed with our mobile repair. However, I have a fully accredited, ICBC Express repair center in partnership with Colorworks, so no job is ever too big for me to repair. At Vickery Collision, we can fix all your vehicles bumps and bruises, and look after your insurance claims and bring your vehicle back to pre-accident condition with a lifetime guarantee. At Vickery Collision, we offer our unique valet service for convenient pickup and delivery of your vehicle.
At Colorworks, I offer the best of both worlds. I can come to you and repair your minor scuffs and scrapes, right on sight, or I am happy to offer our full collision services at Vickery Collision. At Colorworks, I am just a phone call away to receive your questions and offer you the best possible answers.

I received a phone call from a customer who scraped the left side of her rear bumper on a rock while she was pulling out of a parking lot. The rock was below her line of sight, but was large enough and heavy enough to leave a ten centimeter long scrape that ran from behind her wheel and stretched out almost to the corner of her bumper. She was annoyed with herself, but she also knew about Colorworks and our unique, mobile repair service. She made one phone call to me and we set up an appointment for a convenient time that fit her schedule and she was delighted that I would come to her home and repair the scrape on her bumper right there in her own driveway.
Some people wonder how I can achieve such an excellent repair right in their driveway that will look as if it has been to the body shop. Colorworks has perfected the process of repairing small, cosmetic damage to vehicles for over twenty years. At Colorworks, we knew that there has always been a niche market for customers that fall between traditional auto detailing that only cleans your car, and full collision services of a body shop that can often be more expensive and will usually take much longer to repair your car. My customer received my expert repair service. I was able to fix her bumper in a few hours and she was thrilled that her vehicle now looks as good as new.
At Colorworks, I pride myself on bringing the Colorworks mobile repair service right to your driveway and delivering the highest quality repairs to all of your vehicle’s bumps and bruises, while saving you time and money. It is a total “win/win”.
