Help! Crashed my pride and joy!

Does anyone know any good body shops in the stoke on Trent area, or advice in general for sorting out a serious dent in my off-side rear panel behind the door?! I lost it, aqua-planing into a central reservation this morning.

Gutted dosent cover it!

I don't even know if it'll be an economical repair given the age/value of my car.

You may have more luck asking in the specific regional lounge. I've been to the Bass place at Stoke on Trent, but I'm not sure which regional lounge covers it.

Sorry about your car, but at least you're OK and nobody else drove into you while you were getting intimate with the Armco.

i can recommend an amazing and yet very cheap bodyshop local to me, however it would mean probably an hours drive for you so don't know if you'd be interested as a guide when i slid my 156 into a brick wall on some ice i had the bumper repaired ( was broken into 3 separate pieces which he plastic welded back together ) new foglight and it's surround, inner wheel arch and then of course the bumper resprayed due to the repair and that totalled only 300, time and time again he's proved to be the cheapest to everyone i've recommended him too the most recent was when somebody drove into the back of my friends Ford KA her local bodyshop quoted almost 1000 Steve did it for a little over 500.

oh and he's an insurance approved repairer too his work is top notch.

Haskard Steve - Car Body Repairs in Nottingham - details are there.
