For those past 20 years we have traveled across the country repairing hail damage at auto body shops, dealers, and paintless dent repair shops and saw a need for a network of solid, honest businesses to help our customers get the best possible service and repairs. We know sometimes a damaged vehicle is beyond the capabilities of paintless dent repair so we have established our own high quality Collision Center.
Paintless Dent Repair
Paintless dent repair is the process of repairing dings and dents in many types of preformed sheet metals (like your car). The repair process is achieved by using specially- shaped tools to access the backside of the damaged area. Using a reflection technique, a highly trained technician can press and massage the damaged area back to its original shape without harming the painted outer-finish.
A more involved repair that requires painting and conventional auto body repair is a service we offer with some great perks. Everything we do is is motivated by doing the best possible repair to your vehicle. Because of our extensive experience in metal work we are your best option for time saving and money saving repairs, and we can repair damaged panels and eliminate the cost of a replacement. We have saved customers over a thousand dollars on quality Collision Repairs! All of our repairs carry a lifetime guarantee.
Paintless dent repair has many benefits for you and your vehicle. For you it saves time; an average repair takes only a few hours. Hail damage can be repaired in only a few days, not weeks. This means no rental car or less time in one. The cost of paintless dent repair is typically 60-70% less than repairs at a conventional body shop for dent and ding repair and about 50-25% less for hail damage repairs. So you save money, your vehicle gets to keep its resale and trade in value, and the original paint will not be disturbed.
Paintless dent repair has been around in some form or another for quite some time. Before the age of automobiles metal smiths that worked with precious metals used a similar process of straightening bent or dinged ornaments. As early as the 1920′s, German auto makers had highly skilled technicians called “ding men” repair auto body imperfections right on the assembly lines.
Paintless dent repair has become more mainstream since the mid 1980′s for several reasons:
- Lighter thinner sheet metal (better gas Mileage)
- Flexible 2 stage paint (5 mph impact laws)
- Paintless Dent Repairs can be done in hours, not days, for dents and dings
- Paintless Dent Repairs can be done in one to two days, not weeks, for hail damage
- 50%-70% less expensive than conventional repainting methods
So, thinner metal and more flexible paint have made the process more user-friendly.
Whenever paintless dent repair is used, the environment is saved a considerable amount of waste. If you take, for example, a hail damaged car. If that car is repaired using older conventional methods, a lot of waste is created. The panels may be cut out and thrown away. The solvents and paint used create a considerable amount of waste also. We know and understand that sometimes painting damaged vehicles is required but, if it is not necessary, it helps save our planet a little bit at a time. 1800DingGuy.com is committed to helping the environment any way we can.
