    Angry Garage damaged my car!!!

    My car went in to the garage on Monday, turned out it needed a new thermostat. they couldn't get on til next day.
    When I went to collect, I noticed a big scuff along the corner of the rear bumper!!!!
    Spoke to the garage owner, who obviously denied all knowledge and claimed it was there when I left the car there.
    Think he thought I was trying to pull a fast one!!!
    After a bit of arguing, he finaly gave me a number for a guy he uses for painting, he has told him to correct the damage and he will pick up the bill!! Too Blo0dy right!!!
    Popped to see the paint guy yesterday, can't fit me in til 6th April and wants it for two days!!
    Great.
    Just wanted to share my frustrations!!!!!

    I think we should all take pictures of the car before handing it over...?

    The most important thing right now, is that you get the car fixed up at no cost . After that, it's a lesson learned and you'll find you may like to choose somewhere else for your future repairs.

    And of course you really need to be glad you fought it out with him, do you think he'd of paid up without a little resistance from you?
    Good luck
