Dent repair

In case you have a small-ish dent, just wanted to recommend this company real-quick: https://www.facebook.com/hailtechnics.ch/ (Darko Eric, 078 841 09 06). He comes to your place and will fix it in ~30min. If the dent involves also a scratch that's not too deep, he will polish the site as well and the scratch will be gone too. Reasonable prices, super nice guy, highly recommended!

In my case I got a nice dent in the driver door from what I can only assume was another door of a parallel-parked car. A scratch with white paint came as a bonus. After Eric did his magic, it's like it never happened.

I have to mention that I contacted several companies that I found on the internet claiming they do this kind of spot repair and:
- 1 actually didn't do it, although advertised
- 2 wanted my car in their garage for a day
- 1 wanted my car in their garage for half a day
- the 3 above were more expensive than Eric coming down and fixing it in 30min

Final notes: I'm not affiliated with him in any way. I don't know if he speaks English, we spoke German

Re: Dent repair

Thanks for this. Does he only fix dents or also scratches. Had a nasty one on my car last year and it was super expensive to fix even with the insurance picking it up.
Regards

Re: Dent repair

If only there was somebody near me to take the hail damage out of the wife's car


But really .. If you know anybody canton VD who can do these little jobs I'd like to know.. Wife's is beyond hope but i have a little dent that annoys me, but not enough to pay a fortune at the dealers.

Re: Dent repair

I don't know if he fixes also scratches, call him

As for hail...well the company name is hailtechnics after all. Give the guy a call, he only works mobile, I'm pretty sure that for a hail repair he will come to you in VD.

Sidenote: nothing is beyond hope. I actually knew someone back home some years ago who did exactly this kind of repair and had his shop one house down from where I lived. It was really unbelievable to see the before/after (in fact the guy bought hail damaged cars in the west, repaired them and sold them for a nice profit).

Re: Dent repair

This is great information. Based on your repair, what was the cost?

Re: Dent repair

In my case it was 149chf + vat (for more dents repaired in the same session it's 50chf/dent more, I only had the one). You don't have to pay on the spot, he sends the invoice later. Given what the other garages quoted, the quality of the work and the fact that I wasted no time myself by virtue of the fact that he came to me, I find it very acceptable.

Re: Dent repair

Radio silence. He may have picked up on my Auslander speak & decided I'm more hassle than I'm worth. Oh well!

Re: Dent repair

I have very good experiences with Carrosserie Aeschlimann in Dšllikon, although they might be in a different price range.

Thanks Harrie, do they provide a mobile service or must I bring the car into their place?

Re: Dent repair

I don't know, it doesn't seem like they do. Other than that, they're real profis.


Best to give them a call.
