recommendations for body shop near gatwick / redhill?

Post by markblack77 » Mon Aug 26, 2019 10:36 pm

Hello all,

My MKIII's been in storage for a while and finally! I can get it out and running again...

However while in storage it got damaged (front and rear wing took a knock).

I'm looking for any recommendation for a good body shop around Gatwick? Redhill?

Or Surrey, Sussex of Kent?

Thanks in advance

Mark

Hi Mark,
Perhaps try Tickover in Dartford, they might be able to recommend somewhere.

Tickover do have a bodyshop nextdoor to them so they can carry out the work and then send it nextdoor but they really have a long list at the moment of projects .

There is a garage I used in Seer Green in South Bucks that was really good, appreciate it's about 45minutes the opposite way though
