I want to get my doors dipped to remove the numerous coats of paint. Does anyone have a recommendation?

I have looked on the web but the only person nearby (East London) hasn't got back to me despite me contacting him twice.

I would be grateful if anyone could help.

Thanks so much.

I dont know how helpful this is, but I had a chap out in Hanwell who dipped doors. (Opposite the big tile shop). I know it's a bit of a way, and you have to schlepp the doors on your car roof...sorry I'm out of the country or I'd be able to give his name. But there MUST be others. Have you tried the people in Wandsworth Bridge Road? They have two or three pine shops there, and I think they would be able either to do it or to direct you.

I have used a company with the rather cringy name of Wood be Goods under a railway arch in South Bermondsay
- in Jarrow Road. I don't know if they are still functioning.

It is still there, I used them at the end of last year - they were excellent.

You could also try Bob Welford on 020 8693 6727 - in East Dulwich but may well do them if you have a few of them.

Hope this helps,
