    Help / advice please.

    Whilst on Hols in France I picked up some carpark damage,

    The side of the van kissed a post, and on the nearside I now
    have a bit of damage, the skirt panal is broken and there are
    a lot of heavy scratches,

    Can anyone recommend a garage that can do this sort of repair
    it is through the insurance but Aviva dont have referal firm they use
    for motorhomes so i need to get a couple of Quotes.

    We live in Eastleigh Hants. all recommendations welcome.

    Thank you.

    Glenn will give you a quote, we do a lot of insurance work, just give him a ring and bring the van up during the week or Satuday moning.

    Hi Barry thanks for the tip, but got told of a place near Romsey and they will be doing the work, will let you know how they do as allways handy to have a few contacts.

    Oh so sorry we looked for you in the morning but you had left early, we were just a few down from you on the corner..
    Hoping you can get it sorted really quickly.. we had one or two close little moments which left us feeling low with our bruises so can understand how you must be feeling

    A great shame we didnt get to chat with you at the time though, hoping to meet you on a better note next time

    John n Kath xx
