Hello

I'm after recommendations for people who sort out scratches and dents, preferably those who come to you - like ChipsAway.

Does anyone know anybody I can try? Or have any contacts?

Thanks xx

Little Knocks in Wokingham Nik - top notch thumbs up had loads of body done by him in the past and present on my sisters ST - good thing is not a 'Jack of all trades' only does bodywork/colour coding and alloy wheel repairs not MOTs etc etc. Also not to far from us either.

Ohh and by the way when BMWs bodyshop is busy they send them down to him - he showed me the beamers out back and the invoices from BMW Rolling Eyes

BMW quoted on my old Cooper (which some idiot scrapped and left it in the M&S carpark F*&^*@$) £500 + labour and if they broke any clips of the bumper i would have to pay for them to.

£80 cash done and dusted and it was metallic paintwork and you honestly couldn't tell. Clean workshop and good equipment ( i asked to have a look around and checked Embarassed )

Never needed one Nik but I'd always start by asking the dealer who they use because if they are happy with them then they should be ok - if that makes sense Wink

Thanks Taylor, it's for my Dad's Navara - I've given him the address and he said he will probably pop in on his way home from work. Smile

No probs Very Happy

Yeh they do insist on seeing the damage before they will touch it to asses etc which is good to know.

Chips away can be a bit hit and miss as they are franchised, unless you already have a contact for someone reliable
