Repairer - Victoria
« on: November 22, 2016, 05:15:11 PM »
Hi All,

Due to a lack of experience I managed to roll my perentie over a week ago and have heard back from the insurance company...
They don't know where to send it for repairs.
Has anyone got any idea on where I might be able to get the repairs done in Vic?
There is a puncture in the rear left hand side of the body, passenger door needs replacement, windscreen housing is busted along with the windscreen, minor panel damage on the front corner, damage to the canvass and that sort of thing I've attached the photos so you can have a look.
There's also some issues with the engine but my mechanic (Ex-Army) should be able to fix them.

Any help would be great!

Cheers,
Tripps

To coin a phrase, "Whoops!".

I wouldn't know where the best place to send it is but I know there is a place in Melton.
A fellow on this site had his repaired there. He had issues because of chassis damage. If your chassis is not damaged, it might be worth asking for a quote from them.
I'll have a search later. See if I can find the thread.

Thanks Mick,

Haha a mate saw the photos and said "That's what we call a Whoopsie daisy!"

I think the mob you are thinking of is 4x4 Obsessions in Melton, they've done most of the work I've needed doing on mine, wasn't sure they would do panels though. I have reached out to them but haven't been able to get onto them yet!

Hopefully they get back to me soon, otherwise the search is still on.

Cheers,
Tripps

This guy has also come up on my radar. He was recommended to me for possible paint repairs for the Merc.

Cheers Mick.

I've reached out to the bloke who had the repairs done through Fixwell, seemed like he had a bit of a rough trott with them based on the forum.
I'll wait to see what he says as far as satisfaction go, all also check out some reviews on that one you sent through.

I'll keep the forum updated as I go!

Thanks for the help!

G'day mate,

Sorry to hear you rolled rover over. I'd contact some body repairers in Seymour. A lot of the civies there would have done repair work there and at least they might be able to put you in touch with someone at the base workshop who might be able to direct you somewhere.

Good luck 😊👍

Cheers Mick,

Rolling Rover came down to sheer lack of experience, but you know what I got out of it? A butt load of experience lol.
That's probably not a bad idea, a bit far from where I am but they might no someone...!

I'll give someone up there a try and see how I go!

Tripps,

When it comes to the 110's , you weren't the first and no doubt will not be the last to roll one.

At least you get to tell the story 😊👍

Cheers,

Mick
