    I've used a couple of franchises in the South (Beds/Herts) and always had good results. If you're not happy with the result, tell 'em on the spot.

    Think it is totally down to the guy you get. But as has been said before tell him about anything you are not happy about and make sure you take a very good look at the colour match using daylight. I used to do smart repairs and a good job needs a lot of time and effort. People used to phone me up with the slightest thing they werent happy about and i would go back round and sort it.

    it's definitely down to who you get!

    At work a few years ago somebody reversed into the drivers door of my white FTO, big scuff & dent. Was quoted £60 by chips away bloke in huddersfield so i booked it.

    He came to my work & said for £90 all in he'd also get rid of the other small supermarket car door type dings that were also in passenger door!!

    So i got it done, the guy that reversed into me was paying for it anyways. He was actually chuffed with £90, he thought I was gonna have to get it sprayed etc & then have a bill of about £200.

    Anyways, chips away guy did a cracking job, couldn't see anything afterwards!!

    Hi mate. Was looking at this as I'm in Huddersfield and trying to find a good mobile bodywork repairer. I've looked at chips away and am trying to get a quote. It pointed me to the local Hudds repair guy called Jason. Is he te same guy that did your repair work?

    If not, please would you be able to point me in the right direction to the contact details of who did the repairs on your motor?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!
