Yesterday, I came back to my beloved Camper (2014) to find that some large car or van had clearly attempted a bad three point turn at some point in the day and had bashed into the side of her. (Nearside side/rear. Next to the back lights. Medium sized dent and cracked paintwork on body and damaged end of rear bumper - nearside.) No note. Nothing. It was/is really upsetting. Mabel (the van) is due her one year Danbury service in March and I was thinking of getting the damage fixed then, at the same time. (I know it has nothing to do with the warranty, so don't tell me!) However, I thought I'd ask here for recommendations of anyone in London who could do it, as I'd like to be able to compare quotes from all parties. Help anyone? Sob....

That's not good. Any cctv in your area? Maybe the police can help identify the crim....

Sorry to hear you have been hit, this is becoming a very common occurrence in car parks. We have had similar, the police told us that they get a number of reports of this occurring in supermarket car parks daily.
Can't help you with any London companies, Tim V had some bodywork done a while back which looked well done in the pictures.

I read EVERYTHING!! Wink

Sorry to see this Jo1, how upsetting and frustrating.  Evil or Very Mad

I can highly recommend BRM Coachworks in Epsom.  They're my preferred bodyshop as they know how picky I am and always do a great job.  Give them a buzz on 01372 720222, speak to David or Nigel.  Nigel is a hardened VW enthusiast, drives an old Bug, attends a lot of the shows and always has some kind of old skool VW being worked on in the workshop.  They've fixed/painted plenty of my cars and other BraziBays from here too. Right next to Epsom station so very accessible from town too. Tell them I suggest you contact them. Hope your Kombi is back to pristine asap. Basketball

I've used BRM Coachworks for my Passat (when someone drove into the back) and I also think they're very good.

We have also used BRM (following Tim's recommendation). Nigel was fantastic. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Good luck Smile
