Rimowa repair


After a Jetblue flight, my Rimowa Limbo arrived on the conveyor with a bashed in corner. Looks like it was dropped off the aircraft belt. The dent is probably 2 inches deep. It doesn't appear that the poly was broken. I contacted B6 at the airport (FLL) and am awaiting their next steps

My question is Is this fixable? And, if so, who should fix it? Their designated repair or should I insist on Rimowa in Miami?

Since the frame is polycarbonate, you can try to pour hot water over that area and push the dent back out to fill the frame.

Similar concept to an indent in a car bumper.

I did send this to the B6 repair partner in Dallas. They deemed it unrepairable. The dent and also a misaligned hinge

they are replacing it with the current Rimowa product
