Recommendation for garage in Horgen/Wadenswil area please.

Can anyone recommend a garage, preferably where they speak a bit of English to complement my bit of German? Would prefer a small local place rather than a main dealership type.

I need someone to do a pre-import car check on a right-hand drive UK car, and also (ideally) do a bit of bodywork touching up.

Preferable location would be Horgen / Wadenswil / Richterswil etc where I can easily drop off the car and jump on a train to Zurich, where I work.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know most garages are for a special "brand" of a car, i.e. Peugeot or Mercedes etc. Therefore I would need more information about your car in order to help. Let my know by PM if you need help with German.

I can only recommend Delta Garage in Wädenswil. They are a Mazda garage but are so friendly they WILL pass you on to someone. They only speak Swiss German though.
