With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we receive here in our Macclesfield vehicle repair centre. You can check them out below, and if there’s anything else you need to know please don’t hesitate to ask!

What is an air conditioning regas?

An air con regas involves the removal of your old air conditioning gas and replacing it with a new supply, so it can run cold and fresh again. This is very important in terms of vehicle efficiency and hygiene, and our team of experts here in Macclesfield will get your air conditioning system back to showroom standard in no time.

Why would a windscreen need re-calibrating?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) include a variety of different types of technology that work together to improve the driver experience. Very often, these tools are built into the car’s windscreen, which means that if the glass is damaged and/or replaced they will no longer work properly. A recalibration is essential after any damage to the windscreen in an ADAS vehicle, and here at Orion Motors we are proud to be among Macclesfield’s most trusted calibration experts.

Do you fix scratches and scuffs?

As Macclesfield’s first choice for vehicle repair, we offer a comprehensive range of services. Scratches and scuffs are included in our vehicle repair services, but we are also trusted by our big name partners to work on bigger jobs too.

How much does it cost?

This depends on the make and model of the car and the size of the repair job we are undertaking, but as Macclesfield’s first choice for vehicle repair you can trust us to provide you with a fair quote upfront and competitive, honest pricing.

Do you undertake insurance work?

Yes, we are approved and accredited to undertake insurance work and this is one of the most regularly requested jobs in our Macclesfield vehicle repair shop.

How do you ensure you get the right colour?

We have spent many years restoring vehicles to their showroom looks, so we can match pretty much any colour. We use state of the art technology to mix the perfect tone and shade of paint according to our extensive database, which includes all the makes and models of vehicles registered over the past 20 years.

Will all the damage I have identified be carried out on an insurance job?

Will you investigate any other issues when you are carrying out the repair of my vehicle?

Before returning my lease car I decided to get my wheels repaired by Chris and the team at Orion. I couldn’t have picked a better company to do this. The service from beginning to end was first rate and the price was reasonable too. My wheels looked amazing and the car was returned to Ford without any issue. Superb service. Highly recommended!
