Smash Repairs of Toyota Hiace

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Bump Shop, does a very large percentage of commercial vehicles, so when a regular customer brought their near new 2018 Toyota Hiace in for an assessment of a damaged rear quarter panel, it was deemed that the quarter panel would have to be completely replaced.

Other panel shops may have opted to repair this panel, but The Bump Shop is more focused on quality repairs, and with a “Lifetime Warranty” on these repairs, the panel replacement was the only option.

A process that closely follows the standards achieved by the Manufactures was employed to replace the panel, and the results speak for themselves, with a quality repair, a very satisfied customer, and a vehicle that looks and works exactly as its makers intended.

Environmental Concept Vehicle Repairs

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Conservation of the environment and mindful use of resources, are themes that already run strongly through the whole business of The Bump Shop!

So when this all electric concept vehicle from Queensland Urban Utilities, affectionately called the “Poo Car” came in for some minor repairs,

we all felt that it nicely complimented our initiatives here like rainwater usage for cleaning, solar power generation and environmentally friendly painting systems!

Just some facts about what the “Poo Car” concept demonstrates:

  • Over 9,000kms of sewerage mains deliver waste from houses, schools and business to the treatment plants.
  • The sewage arrives at the plant for treatment.
  • The biogas produced from sewerage sludge drives an engine, called a cogeneration unit, which produces electricity.
  • The waste-generated electricity charges the “Poo Car”.
  • The benefits are helping the environment by using a cleaner and greener energy source, which reduces the environmental footprint with lower emissions.

    The car was returned to the owner once restored to its original immaculate condition, and he could not have been happier with the job, .or in fact with the Lifetime Warranty on repairs.
