    how long does it take!

    my car has been in the body shop now for allmost two weeks, all they had to do was put right a dent under the bumper and a small touch up, paint was ordered first and so was everything else they needed, how god damn long does it take, if i didn't have borken shoulder blade would have done it myself in half the time, rang them a few times to be told by a whining secretary, well its taking longer than we thought, maybe next week is all they say, sod it think ill go get it back and drive it like that!
    how long is reasonable to take on such a small repair job?
    don't usually whinge but I WANT MY CAR BACK

    It took my choice of bodyshop 1 week to knock out, and fill a dent in my passenger front door, then respray the entire door, and it only took so long coz they got the wrong shade of star silver
    If I were you Id certainly be asking what the hell the delay is

    If it was me I'd pop round to the bodyshop in person - see what state the car is in for ur self - this way u cant be fobbed off by some "whining secretary"
    No point pussyfooting around - just turn up and have a butchers.

    Just my opinion afterall so feel free to disagree...but surely it would be easier just to turn up rather than posting on here - getting loads of people's opinions (who have no personal experience with the said bodyshop) then being no further forward.
