Re: Hail stone damage

I must admit to being one of those people who like hail as long as nobody gets hurt, I fix dents for a living.

Re: Insurance NCD Question

They already know your claims history as they have access to the CUE system, they just want your confirmation in writing. Just claiming for a windscreen chip or even making an inquiry about a incident is logged and can affect your premiums.

Re: Tyre shop badly scratches pristine alloy wheel and offer

Ask them who will do the repair, if it is man in a van it may look fine for a short while. Down in the correct conditions inside in a nice warm unit it should be as good as new.

Re: PDR

Classic example of somebody not knowing about us, did a dent on the swage line of a 2012 Freelander today and charged the bodyshop I did the work for £45. They charged the customer £630 for a side paint which after I finished they did not do, just a little rub over with the machine polisher. Happe...

OK then I will apologise. Maybe after many years of people spouting dry ice and pop corn repairs I am getting more cynical, I am passionate about my trade and will defend it when required.

None of the quality painters I use would do it that cheap, materials alone would eat well into that price. £200 to £250 seems about right
