Why book a panel beater through Airtasker?
If you’ve been in a minor car accident, or your vehicle has been dented in the car park, it stands to reason that you’ll want to get it repaired. For damage to your car’s body, a panel beater is who you need to see.
Car panel beaters specialise in removing dents and restoring your vehicle to its original condition. This normally includes small details like touching up the paint work to make your car appear new.
All vehicles are designed to high standards to protect you in the case of an accident, and your car’s body is often its first line of defence. If it becomes damaged, it will be less effective if you were to be in another accident – putting you and your passengers are risk and costing much more to fix.

When you accept a car panel beater’s offer to do your job, Airtasker collects the money from you and keeps it safe. Once you’re happy with the work, you can release it to your Tasker.

Top Panel Beater related questions
How long do panel beating repairs take?
Every accident and dent can take a different time frame and it’s unlikely that a mechanic can give you an accurate assessment without looking at the car. In most cases, the work can be done on the same day as you get the quote. Getting a quote is not a long process and should take no more than 15 minutes.
How long do I have to wait before I can drive my car again?
Once the mechanic has repaired your car, it’s safe to drive. If they come across any problems or reasons why you shouldn’t drive your car, they will let you know.
Can the mechanic paint and tidy up my car?
This is a service that some Taskers offer, but not all. It’s best to include this in your task so that the people you are dealing with are fully aware of what you’re looking for.
Will people be able to tell that a car has been damaged and repaired?
If you use a professional panel beater, the car will look as good as new when it’s finished. The body will be as strong as before and, if you opt for it, they will touch up the paint around the area of damage.
What panel beater prices should I expect?
The average price for a panel beater on Airtasker is $190, but this commonly ranges from $24 to $272 depending on the amount of work that needs to be done.
Do I need a specialist licence for panel beater service?
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant panel beater licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What do panel beaters do?
Panel beating is a niche form of car servicing offered by mechanics all around Australia. Its primary concern is removing damage to the body of a car, ute or truck. This often means they’re removing dents from a vehicle, but they may also have to replace parts depending on the severity of the damage.
Most panel beaters also offer a tidy-up service, where they match the colour of your vehicle and paint around the affected area to make it look as good as new.
Panel beaters often have experience with areas of a car other than just its body. If there are any other aspects of auto repair you need help with – whether it’s smashed headlights from an accident or an ongoing issue you haven’t got around to fixing yet – it’s always worth asking if it’s something that can be fixed while they’re looking at your car.
As part of a standard job, but also available as a standalone offering, panel beaters often offer a car detailing service. The main focus of this is normally touching up the paintwork around the damaged area, but it can extend to a wash, vacuum and polish.
For vehicles that have been involved in bigger accidents, you may find that you need window and windscreen repairs. The mechanic will remove the affected glass, clean up any pieces that have made their way into the interior and replace the windscreen to make your car as good as new.
