In a cruel twist of fate, I picked up a scratch on my car (). Anyway, I've been looking for companies to fix it. I can't afford to be without my car for a couple of days, so I found a guy who comes to your home/office to fix dents and scratches.
What leaves me slightly concerned is that the guy works for himself, so there's no big name behind him. According to his website, he does work for a couple of big dealerships (VW, Audi and BMW, among others) and he has 16 years of experience. On the other hand, you have big repair shops backed by a franchise and whatnot, but HelloPeter is rife with complaints about these guys (causing additional body damage, ripping out wiring, etc).
In a dog-eat-dog world, who do you trust? The unknown little guy who works for himself and has only his name to uphold, or big, established companies. I'm pessimistic, and cars are expensive, hence my concern. I've decided to give the little guy a chance (fingers crossed that my car will be restored to her former glory).
On a side-note, has anyone ever dealt with Auto Paint Repairs (http://www.autopaintrepairs.co.za/wcontact.php)?
