Cheap Car Dent Repair & Painting - Germany? France? Italy? Eastern Europe?

Hello,

Does anyone have any thoughts / guesses as where would be the cheapest, yet reliable place in Europe to get scrapes, dents, repainting done?

Over the years, I have dented and scraped both sides of my partner's car. I think my infractions can be pounded out and repaired but they will also need to be repainted and perhaps the paint blended with other parts of the cars.

I'm wondering which neighboring country this could be done more cheaply?

I'm also wondering if we could combine this with a holiday and simply drive to some East European country to get this done, but wondering how good of a job they do. I hear it's possible to go to Bratislava for cheap labor costs, just the other side of Vienna.

Any thoughts?

How cheap you figure it should be in Eastern Europe?
Quality work started to cost just about the same in those parts too, full stop. Just so you know and dont come back here all bitter and bashing.

Re: Cheap Car Dent Repair & Painting - Germany? France? Italy? Eastern Europe?

We drove to my in-laws last year and our few year old car had a handful of door marks and scuffs that needed repainting.

The guy who did the work from a garage at his home sucked his teeth, chewed his pencil and spent ages pondering if he could fit us in.

In the end, it cost 300 Zloty (about 90 chfs) and his work was first class.

Still, it did cost me a week with the in-laws (no wifi) and it's a 32 hour round trip.

Any good?
