Unpleasant Experience at Yew Lip

My experience with Y*w L*p die off before it can start. Was there yesterday to do some body work repair yesterday (after seeing all the recommenation in the forum).

Was there at 8:40. Was told that they start at 9am and A***(lady boss) is having breakfast. So I wait.
9:10 - approach another worker. He said she shoul be coming soon.
9:30 : The lady arrived in a Kangoo. She serve a Camry 1st (who come later). Then she approach me.

She inspected and quoted me 250 for repair work (scratch between wall column). I told her I come here becos of lots of good comment in SHC.
So she lower to $150. I told her whether it can be done at 100 or less. She firmly said no.

Well ok, I said I will seek 2nd opinion. Found another shop (Yong Thye Seng) @ Sin Ming blk 18. Approach by the boss. He quote me $80. As I requested less paint work, we finally agree on $60. Collect the car last night. The paintwork was well done. I save $90 upfront !!!

Guess too much business for Y*w L*p has given them more reason to up the price. Demand and supply still rule.

Different strokes for different people. I guess to you dollars and cents matters more than the quality of the paintjob and after sales support. Well if it's $$$ that matters most, think more expensive painters like A* L*e will all be out of business as well.

Not saying the YTS is bad but I've been a very satisfied customer of Y*w L*p as their workmanship is really good and A*** has also shown me very good aftersales support. Maybe you should give them a try 1st and see the difference.

Cheers,

Dan

Just want to share my pleasant experience at Yew Lip (@ sin min).

Kanna accident recently so went there to respray my bumper and some panel beating.... The boss, Angie, was very helpful and sincere in helping me. My ride is black in colour but the paint quality is among the best I have encountered so far. Almost as good as new.

Price is also very reasonable too...I would strongly recommend this shop to fellow drivers out here..

I am so happy with their service that I decided to post this msg...can call them at 64536600.


Jus to ask, roughly how much is to respray a car wif few dents? U mentioned Yew Lip's pricing is reasonable, but I need to know the market price so to balance and measure the price.

Guess both $$$ and quality do count. If can save $, why not. Dont think only Y** L** provide good service or quality.

Went for a quote wif angie yesterday. Quote me 1300 for 1 panel beating at the fender and a dent in the other fender.

Went to a paint shop in jurong. 600 for all. Well, i admit workmanship could have a difference however the $$ gap charged is way too great. Charging me at 700 more. I can go for 2 paint job in the jurong paint shop.
