Had my car smashed into on the weekend while it was parked. Although the man at fault is trying to help out his insurance AAMI are terrible. it will take over a month just to assess the damage:mad: So ive decided to go through my insurance as they let me choose a panel beater. Only thing is i don't know of any and to be honest i wouldnt just go to anybody car is only 4 months old and i want it as good as new as quick as possible. I'm in the north western suburbs of melbourne any recommendations?

Navarone Panels in Clayton have done great jobs on all my wifes cars! I couldn't tell they had been repaired.

Which AAMI assessment centre? The North Melbourne one is usually booked out for a month in advance, but the one in Preston should get you in within a week. There are others too: http://www.aami.com.au/contact-aami/branch-locations/branch-locations-vic
