Default Re: Cartisan, Bangalore: Connecting car owners with service providers

I took this service couple of days back. Surprised by several things and very happy.

1) They got me to Sai Colorium Car care, which is filled with competent people. I never thought they could do such great job. I gave my Jazz looking at all the Mercs, Porches and Audis parked. Also looking at new Baleno's etc feels relived.
2) The quote: Door 2800 (including taxes), Front right fender 2800 (including taxes)
3) half bumper: 1800 (i could get 1200 in other services)
4) Pictures and videos of the car getting done was shared through the app. This is something quite cool. Sitting at office at least an emotional leveller to see the car in progress.

I went for it. I am yet to asses the job today or tomorrow. As it will be delivered tomorrow or hope fully today evening.

I could also make a card payment / PayTM payment through the app. The car payment is usually not available at the dealer.

There is also one trick: Tinkering cost is always assessed at the stop. Although the initial cost estimate is based on the picture, the service provider make the final adjustment at the site. He will promptly say, "Sir, this door requires additional work, "adike iinoor rupayi jasti kodbeku" ( This job needs additional work, so i need 500rs more). Some how they cant make out what is the actual even in a high resolution picture. Additionally, is any other tinker requires less effort, they wouldnt reduce.

I also compared the quote with Sai Car care (JP Nagar 5th phase) part of Bosch Car care service. This place offer 8000rs + taxes and card payment facility.

I would always like to pay through credit cards, for one reason that i can easily and always dispute the transaction with the bank in case if the services are not delivered as promised. A sort of buyer protection from bank, although not guaranteed.

I opted for the AC Duct sanitization last weekend for Rs. 499/-. It was quite a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend their service.

Did you get to assess the job?
Have some denting and painting jobs for my ride, and thinking about Cartisan.
How many days did they take in total?

Please note: the Job is not dependent on Cartisan, its dependent on the agency Cartisan is tied up with. I am fully satisfied with the work output of Sa Colorium Car Care. They have done a fantastic job.

Only grouse: In order to cut costs, cartisan has told not to water wash the car at the end of the job. So they take a bucket and cloth and wipe off. Interiors they do clean. This is not something Cartisan should do.

They took three days in total for the job.

I have purchased a sub from Snapdeal, and they are offering installation through Cartisan. Unlike other services, this one is done by their in-house team, at our location. Also, they dont have options for the wiring kit - they only have "Boss".

So I have two unknowns - how good are the installers, and the kit. From early TBHP posts, Boss is a run-of-the-mill quality kit.
