    What is paintless dent repair? This term means that we can remove the dents from your vehicle without having to ruin or replace the paint of your vehicle. Many times, auto body repair companies must use harsh tools and techniques that could scratch or otherwise damage the paint, causing them to have to repaint that part of the vehicle. With paintless dent repair, we use tools and techniques that gently work the dents out of your vehicle to save your paint job and provide overall quicker service.

  • Our Dent Repair Process

    First, we start by inspecting the damage of your vehicle to determine if paintless dent repair is right for you. Unfortunately, not all vehicles are good candidates for this type of dent repair. Large dents or dents that occur on bends in your car’s body may not be able to receive this type of service.

    If your car is a good candidate for paintless repair, we start by accessing the back of the dent, and using specialized tools to work around the outside of the dent, eventually causing the entire thing to pop out. Sometimes specialized lighting is used to create shadows that help our technicians better see the damage.

  • Insurance Repairs

    Our shop provides estimates for and performs insurance repairs. If your vehicle has sustained serious hail damage or has been dented in some other way, please contact our staff to schedule a free estimate of your needs!
