Smart Repairs Question from Darren Mullin

Submitted on 09/11/2009

vehicle location is in Whetstone, N20, north London. Damage to bottom of rear tailgate. paint work chipped and dented. Photos attatched. Please can you advise and quote for the damage. Thanks Darren Mullin Model: volkswagen transit van


this is an easy job for a good bodyshop.

I will foward this onto our bodyshop expert, it maybe worth you traveling to them.


From the photos i believe we could repair this damaged tailgate by panel beating the edge back round and painting.

As the damage is quite low down we may be able to repair paint a small area instead of the complete tailgate, so i shall provide two estimates.

1, To repair and paint edge of tailgate plus inside edge
£149.00 + vat

2, To repair and paint complete outside of tailgate plus inside edge
£199.00 + vat + any badges that may be on the outside of tailgate.

Please note there is a chance that we will not be able to repair this tailgate but i cannot be sure untill we can see it.
