Cylinder Head Skimming in Crawley, While-You-Wait from £52.10+VAT
Book now for a 1-hour turnaround.


At CCM, we appreciate that waiting for cylinder head skimming is just no use to any busy garage or mechanic. We know that you want to get the head skimmed and back on the car as quickly as possible, allowing you to get your customers’ car repaired with a quick turnaround. Please note that currently, we are only able to skim aluminium heads as we don’t have the facilities for cast iron heads.


If you bring your cylinder head to us, we can offer a while-you-wait service, with free tea and coffee, allowing you to get back on the road as soon as possible.


For our local trade MOT customers, we can offer a collection service and return the part on the same day for a small fee. Allowing you to get on with the important business of fixing cars.


CCM can deal with valve removal if required, and also deal with fitments of new valve stem oil seals, and lapping of valves if required. Extra works are charged at the standard workshop rate.


For aluminium heads that are badly pitted, we can offer an alloy weld to fill any voids prior to the head skimming process.


Trade accounts are available to all local garages and workshops.


All our head skimming is carried out at our Gatwick Depot with ‘while-you-wait’ available from Monday to Friday.

At CCM, our mission started out with a simple objective, to repair as many cars as possible for as many people as possible

Today, our mission is tasked towards our customers. We try to understand what you expect from us, what your vehicle needs and what you can afford. Once we understand these factors we can try our very best to repair or service your vehicle.

We believe that communication is the key so we will always try to explain what needs to be done and do our best to estimate accurately what each repair will cost.

We use all forms of communication to keep you updated so please excuse us when we seem to want to know every possible way to contact you.

  • What Is Head Skimming?

    Cylinder head skimming is a way for mechanics to alter the surface of a cylinder head when it has become warped or bowed. The cylinder head is placed on a moving table and a high-speed spinning fly cutter glides across the top. This process accurately removes a super thin layer (about a thousand of an inch) to leave your cylinder head smooth with a completely flat surface.

  • Why Do I Need A Head Skim?

    A common issue when a gasket fails is that it also causes damage to the cylinder head by warping the shape. You may not be able to see this with a naked eye, but even the smallest of changes in shape and flatness can cause more issues. Our expert team in Crawley can get this fixed for you on a same day service.

  • How Much Does Head Skimming Cost?

    Luckily, a cylinder head skim won’t break the bank. We can get your head skimmed for just £52.10 + VAT and we can usually get it done within an hour.

    Our team have years of experience so if you have any other issues that need looking at, we are more than happy to help. Just let us know when you book!
