Accident repair

Hi guys,

After some advice from anyone in the West Midlands, preferably Birmingham.

Someone decided to drive down the side of my car damaging side skirt, door and rear panel. As the ****** drove off looks like I'm going to have to foot the bill myself. Probably work out more expensive to go through insurance due to age.

Anyone recommend anywhere that can do a decent job?

He might not have seen it happening.

Very unlucky Adam.

We seem to be reading this every week on this site.

Hope you get it sorted.

Unlucky mate I'm very sorry to hear that, I would be so annoyed!


I hope you get it repaired without too big a dent in your wallet! I think you are right, it probably will work out better getting it repaired privately in the long run because insurance repairs just seem to be so inflated in cost!
