Paintless Dent Removal

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a process that everyone with dings, dents and creases in their car, van, or even motor bikes tanks can benefit from!

So what is so Special about the Paintless Dent Removal process?

Paintless Dent Removal is the process of repairing your cars dings, dents and creases using specially developed tools; dents can be literally massages back into their original state within minutes, without harming your vehicles paint work whilst maintaining your cars original factory finish.

The process is carried out from behind the dent by an experienced, skilled technician using specialist PDR tools. A paintless dent repair is gained through small access holes, door openings and by removing interior trim and inner wheel arch moldings that lead us directly behind the dented area.

When this is achieved, the skilled technician will take notice by ‘reading the dent’ and then starts the process of massaging the panel back to it’s original state.

What are the benefits of the Paintless Dent Removal process?

1. PDR is a low cost process due to no materials used such as paint, filler or any consumables making the process up to 3-4 times cheaper than a conventional body shop.

2. Because the dents are removed without painting or filling there is no risk or over spraying or mismatched colours. So the paint remains untouched and the bodywork retains its original factory finish.

3. Most Paintless Dent Repair technician’s offer a quick, friendly service and most dents can be repaired within the hour.

4. There’s no need to make an insurance claim as most repairs cost less than your insurance excess.

5. A fast convenient ,mobile service can mean the dents can be repaired at the convenience of your home or place of work so no loss of your vehicle while it is away at the body shop.

6. The process doesn’t involve any rubbing down, filler, paint or chemicals so is 100% environmentally friendly.

7. Removing car dents have shown that it adds value and makes it easier to sell.

Car Water Damage

If you have car water damage in your car, you will need to tend to it quickly for best results. If your car is involved in a flood, it may very likely have been submerged. This can affect, not only the cosmetics of your vehicle, but the electronic system, as well.

Even if your car hasn’t been submerged there could still be significant damage. If you drive through a flooded area or there is a way for water to enter the engine, this could also cause serious problems. Any large dents in the hood could also be an area for it to enter.

If you have been involved in a flood, first check all of your fluids. If they are an off color, have your vehicle towed to an auto mechanic. Don’t drive it! You may cause permanent problems. They will empty the fluids and replace them properly for you.

If you have a newer car, the electrical system may also be involved. If you are in doubt… the dash lights on, running rough etc, tow it to a mechanic. They may need to replace the components.

Your brakes could also be involved. Have them inspected to make sure that they will perform properly. It is possible you may also need to replace them.

If the interior is involved, you will need to clean it well. You can use a wet vac to vacuum most of the water out. If it is soaked, you may find you need to redo the interior due to mold. It is too difficult to dry out the inner seats and many insurance companies will total a car that has interior water damage.

You will need to also check all of the lubricated joints. Most cars are now lubricated at the factory for life, but with flooding, they may have been compromised and will need to be re-lubricated.

Car Maintenance For Women

Oil changes are a necessity (but not as often as you may think). Do you vaguely remember your father telling you that a car needs an oil change every three months? While it’s true that regular oil changes are critical to an engine’s long term well-being, you may not to visit the Jiffy Lube as often as they would like you to believe. Get out your car’s maintenance manual (it’s probably still in the glove compartment where it was the day you drove your new car off the lot), and check to see what the manufacturer recommends for oil changes. You may find that every 6,000 to 7,000 miles is sufficient for your car’s make and model. But if you aren’t sure, don’t skimp.

And while we’re talking about oil changes, you can forget the every-three-month rule as well. The mileage driven has much more effect on the condition of your oil than does the calendar. If you are a senior citizen who only drives a few thousand miles a year, you can probably get away with an oil change every six months.

Which brings us to tires. Be honest, have you ever had your tires rotated? If not, you are going to end up replacing your tires more frequently than is necessary. At an average cost of $100 per tire, that can be an expensive oversight. Your tires should be rotated about twice a year, so plan to have it done when you change your oil, or every other oil change if you are still changing your oil every three months.

Your tires will also last longer if you drive on properly inflated tires. But what is properly inflated? It depends on the make and model of your car. You can check the sticker on the inside of the car door to learn the proper inflation for your tires, which is measured by PSI (or pounds per square inch). Driving on properly inflated tires will help your tires last longer, improve your gas mileage and help to avoid a dangerous blowout on the road. You can easily find an automotive shop that will check the inflation of your tires when they are doing your oil change. If they don’t offer that service, find another shop that does.

If you are using a quicky oil change shop for your oil changes and tire checks, it is a good idea to take you car into the dealer for a more thorough check up at least once a year. Your auto mechanic is more qualified to check brakes, spark plugs, radiator coolant, transmission fluid and belts. They will also know the history of the car and can recommend regular tune-ups when necessary.

Don’t forget to keep records and receipts for all of your auto maintenance and repairs. In the event you have to make a warranty claim, your records will help prove to the manufacturer that you have properly maintained the vehicle. Your records will also help you get the most amount of money when you sell the car, as you can prove to the new buyer that the car has been properly maintained.
