Cheap car repair/body shop near Lausanne

Hi,

I had an accident with my Honda Insight 2010, and the bumper in the back is completely broken. I wanted to ask for an advice on a just and honest repair/body shop in Lausanne or surroundings.

Thanks in advance.

If you plan on getting it replaced, i think the cheaper option is to try french or german dealerships over the border. Its a win win situation since the CHF is almost equivalent to EUR, plus you get the VAT back (mostly 19%) when you let the papers stamped at the border.

Thank you very much for your advice.

Currently, I got the car into shape, so that I can use it for now, and I will try to find a fair (french or german) Honda dealer near the border.

Re: Cheap car repair/body shop near Lausanne

I was just wondering about the fact the VAT can be claimed as mentioned by snjsnjsnj. In this case what about the import duty on Car repair done?
Does anybody has gone through this?

Cheers

It's the same as paying tax on your shopping
