    Default How long is a ball of string

    I know this would be difficult to guess I'm just after a rough idea

    I'm fuming at myself , this morning after finishing work I reversed out and swung around to turn and drive off when my foot slipped off the clutch and made me smack my mates parked car (silver mini) it has put a dent no bigger than 2inches tbh I'd say more like a inch on the bottem back left panel just above the platic bumper the paint is fine just a dent I'm hoping this would not cost more than £200 notes what you guys think he says he's going to get three quotes and go with the cheapest

    Yeah get a dent specialist to have a look mate, might not even cost you £100 to put right. I had a large dent removed from a previous car, cost me £75 and only took the guy an hour.

    Dont get chips away, have a look for someone that specialises in only PDR(Paintless Dent removal) or CDR (Cold Dent Removal) as long as the paint isnt broken 99/100 they will be able to remove it completely. Try DW for someone recommended and local to you. Expect to pay about the £60 mark.

    Some Chipsaway places have a unit they work from. When I used them, I popped to the unit and had a look at some cars they'd fixed. Chipsaway is a great idea, but the quality of work is only as good as the chap (or chapess) doing it.

    Hoping it won't be more than £200

    The paint has not been damaged just a slight scuff which I'm hoping will buff out
