I put a small dent on my white gla 250. Can you recommend a good body shop to repair the dent?
I live in New Orleans Louisiana.

I appreciate any feedbacks. Thanks!

Consider a paint-less dent removal shop if the paint itself is not damaged but simply a dent. They can do wonders at far less cost.

The dent is about the size of my thumb and the paint came off. I need to fix the dent and the paint. :(

Not only there is paintless dent repair but you might find a person who does touch up paint repair. By me on Thursday of every week in a car dealer parking lot is 3 guys there, one is pointless dent, one is touch up paint, and one for interior repair. I have had good luck with the paintless guy a few times and interior repair where he redyed the seat boaster where it was showing wear.

gbarringer was speaking of a dealership lot in general terms as most of them nationwide have itinerant paintless dent/paint chip/wheel repair specialists that visit many dealerships/brands in a week. A local member may chime in and/or give your local dealer a call and I'm sure they can point one out.

You're very welcome Jan.

None of us were born with this knowledge and experience and we're all still learning as the automotive industry evolves. One day we'll all be discussing Benz electric vehicles, which are innately much easier to maintain.
Oh, and you're not foreign to us (USA moderators) but then it is a foreign vehicle, as they used to be called here. ;)

Thank you gbarringer [and me]. I really do appreciate you responding to my post. For a foreign single women with no car experience, I am so happy i found this forum. There are so many people out there helping each other. Thanks again gbarringer :)

To find the repair people check with the used car department at dealerships or other used car sales lots. They use these services for preparing a car for resale. These service people many time have a weekly route where they might move from used car sales to another. This why you do not see cars on a used car lot that has a dent and other small cosmetic damage.
