Who the hell are the paint shop? Dick Turpin & Sons??
Even the PDR guy seems steep. Our local DentMaster guy is £80 but usually works out at £120 for several dents if you have any shopping trolley scars. 3 of us at work all needed stuff, if you have mates in need of their services too it makes their rate cheaper.
Good luck either way :happy2:

Our local PDR and best around our way is £40 a dent, it just depends on area and demand. I second the get a few people in on it though, generally gets you a very good discount for your work when you bring a lot.

My dad owns his own little repair paint shop in the North East and is really cheap compared to some robbing gits. It always makes me laugh how these paint shops come up with ridiculous prices. They totally take the p*ss. He probably would have charged about £100-150 for that job.

I used a guy called Dan who is "Pure Dents".  Charged me £50 I think to come and take a dent out, I had him look at another 4 or 5 small parking dings while he ws there (expecting him to charge me per dent) and the he still only asked for £50! I made him take a healthy tip!

This is Leeds/Bradford for reference

I have pure respect for people like that.. who are willing to go the extra mile and help someone by saving loads or being ripped off!
