Good Alfa Body Shop Near Liverpool

As per on of my other posts about my Alfa 156 been involved in a crash.

The insurance company repaired my car at one of there own garages, I let them take it where they liked. I was not happy with the repairs so they took it back. They are now refusing to repair the bumper, and the dashboard knocking sound as they say these are non-claim related.

Also when these guys had the car, two small dents appeared in the drivers door just above the handle. I donít know if this was to do with the accident or if they have dented the car since its been there but they were not there when I inspected the car the day before the accident, I was planning on part-x-ing the car so had a good look around for damage and when they took it to be repaired one of there guys also inspected it for damage and didnít notice the damage to the door.

Anyway, im looking for a good body shop or dealer who will look at the car and check the repair works and what they believe was caused by the accident and what wasnít.... Then they can do the repair works correctly for me and get the car looking right again.

The car has two dents on the passenger side that were caused by the old lady who used to live next door to me just rubbing the doors with her bumper as she reversed in and out of her parking space, they claim that some how these dents have effected my bumper, they arnt even close !!! I would love a real professionals opinion of the car and then they can do the work and charge it all to the insurance company.

Re: Good Alfa Body Shop Near Liverpool

Rob: What about calling your local Alfa dealer and seeing who they would use?

They ought to give you an independent view. Of course, if they use the same company your insurance did, then you're back to square 1!

There's always the Insurance Ombudsmen and local Trading Standards as well.

Re: Good Alfa Body Shop Near Liverpool

The problem is my local afla dealer is quite a distance away (they are in Wales im on the Wirral).

I think they do bodyshop repairs there but im not sure, they certainly wont use the same company that my insurance company did. I think that company specialises in ripping off both insurance companies and customers who use them in good faith because they are recomended by the insurance company.

A little tip for anyone involved in an accident, ALWAYS take your car to a garage of YOUR choise.

Be careful about getting the work done and then collaring the insurance company, they'll almost definitely refuse to pay. You really need to argue this out with the insurers before you get any work done.
