Can I have recomendations for a decent car body repair place around se1 please. Or futher afield if there are none.
Some twit reversed into my car, and left a nasty dent that cannot be just sucked out.
Not being used to this, I have no experience of car body repair shops around here and my usual garage cannot assist. I am looking for a reasonably priced place that paints/sprays panels properly, with no bubbling :-)
Not sure how useful this is, but TR Autos (Elephant Road , under the arches near Elephant & Castle) have always been good for me, they have done some bodywork repairs although it didn't include respraying (my car is so old it didn't warrant it!) so I cannot vouch for how good they are at that.
No connection just a satisfied customer who went with them based on previous posts on this forum :-)
I approached a car repairers at the Elephant some time ago, and the quote they produced was astronomical, something like 6 hours labour for a scratch about 12 inches long. I was outraged, and took them to task. They told me not to worry 'as the insurance company would pick up the bill'. When I told them this was not the case, and I would be paying for the damage myself,(to protect my No Claims Discount) I was offered a quote which was about half the original. I am loathed to name the ToeRags who gave me the quote, simply because I have no paper evidence, and cannot support this story. Please be aware that I was close to approaching the police & trading standards for the behaviour of TheseRotters who appear to be pushing up the cost of our insurance with impunity. Please be careful who you use - maybe try any of the garages at Robert Dashwood Close near Amelia St, off Walworth Road - I've used most of them, never had any problems - steer clear of the ToeRags tho'
Try Aston at Metro Cab Services, 65 Webber Street, 020 7928 2303, or 07956 452564, he is very good, and very reasonable, no connection other than he repaired a small dent and scratch on my wife's metallic grey Fiat Croma so well that it looked like invisible mending.
Have had work done by Millennium, the work was 2nd to none, the respray guy (Harry) has many moons of experience, my front bumper and side panel were replaced along with some dents on the side & back, couldn't have done a better job.
I also noticed he was doing a restoration job on a antique car at the time...which gave me confidence.
Mine was paid for by insurance, get it down there & get a quote first instant from Nick.
