Guys I hit my mom’s office car into a gate by mistake and now the front door open more than a few cms. There is a dent and scratches on the fender just ahead of the front door. Can local mechanics fix this or should I get scolded by her driver and her?

Just show it to 2-3 nearby shops and get estimates. Also no point in hiding, and if exist go for a insurance claim … Mistakes happen, and admit it

I’m more scared of the scolding from mom tbh. She warned me not to take it.

should cost u around 2k.it will increase as per the mehanic. dont worry. it will be fixed.
scratches will need repainting, same cost. but depends upon the mechanic that you choose. dont go to service centre, ragde jaoge.

It can happen with even the most skilled drivers. Don’t worry, it’s a minor damage.

Looking at your image it seems like nothing but here in Punjab I can get all dents out even major ones by just spending 500-700.

But yes just tell your mom that it is (bill) gates fault and it came in between because of high air speed in your area. Admiting mistakes is biggest crime on Planet Earth.

Damn….I was about to send the image to your mom.

Authorized/unauthorized service center will give you an estimate for free. Take those quotes. Then you need to decide whether you want to claim insurance or not. You decide that based on your calculation comparing the money going out of your pocket for claiming insurance vs not claiming insurance. If not claiming insurance comes out to be cheaper, get it fixed with the service center quoting the least (of course that shouldn’t mean the shoddiest). If claiming insurance comes out to be cheaper, get it fixed at the authorized service center.

I suppose it is Honda in which case you should stay away. I’ve heard they charge huge.

Mine is Toyota, and I found Toyota a little extra with other third-party players in the market. I went with Toyota considering the brand/authorized, and other color matching guarantees they speak about.

Its Hyundai Verna and its a company car.

Its a company car. Will see if insurance can be claimed. The driver will have the final say anyway.

Ludhiana. Bhai yaha car mechanics ki kami nahi. Competition hai. Agar 1 banda 1000 bolega toh dusra 800 teesra 600 mein kar dega. sab ek dusri ki waat laganey mein lagey hai par agar part replace karana hai toh better use company’s agency and let insurance take care of it.
