Anyone use Wheel fix it in surrey?

Looking for feedback on Wheel Fix it Rim Repair Inc. I have used Panthers in the past and they have done a great job, but they usually take a long time. Last time with my volks it was like 4-5 weeks. Greens tends to be pricey especially for 3 piece rims.

I just dropped a bronze anodized wheel with a machined lip off last week. The curb rash was pretty bad and the rim was bent a bit.

Charlie, the owner, told me that it probably wouldn't be possible to get it brand new because the rash went pretty deep, but for the $160 I paid to get it straightened and the rash fixed it looks good for me.

I called panther and nu-brite and they both quoted me 180+tax and 150+tax respectively just for the lip, and about 200-225 if it was bent also. That was before I found out the wheels are anodized and harder to work on and make look good. When I took the wheel to them the quote probably would have gone up.

The rim is a Konig Next in bronze.
