Auto Reconditioning Supplies & Training

Auto Reconditioning Supplies & Training

Auto Reconditioning supplies and training. We offer auto body repair, bumper repair, paintless dent removal, windshield repair, and many other auto reconditioning supplies and training.
As the automotive industry continues to move toward lighter, more fuel efficient vehicles; new trends within the auto body industry have emerged and created their own identity in the process. Modern cars, trucks, SUV’s and other vehicles used by the general public have steadily evolved from larger, heavy duty steel construction to much lighter weight panels and plastics. This evolution of automotive engineering and construction correlates directly to the evolution of how such vehicles are repaired and maintained, both mechanically as well as cosmetically. Traditional auto body shops are beginning to yield to the new generation of repairs and preventative maintenance. This new wave of services is most commonly referred to as Automotive Reconditioning.

The emergence of the automotive reconditioning industry has been bubbling just below the surface of mainstream popularity for years. Until recently, many auto reconditioning service vendors been extremely difficult to find. Services like plastic bumper repair, paintless dent repair, auto detailing and minor collision repair (just to name a few) fall under the new classification of automotive reconditioning services. As explained further in this article, what separates traditional auto body repairs and new automotive reconditioning services is the significant reduction of time and money for the customer, as well as a huge reduction in parts and materials waste. The term reconditioning refers to repairing the existing parts; this new generation of automotive repair work promotes environmental awareness and preservation. One way this is accomplished is by drastically reducing the amounts of damaged plastic and metal panels discarded into our expanding junk yards.
One of the most widely known auto reconditioning services available is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR). This particular trade has saved customers literally hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair dents without needless traditional bodywork and painting. It works by accessing the rear of the dented metal panel and massaging out the damage with specialized PDR tools. If the dent does not run through the edge of the panel and the paint is unbroken, PDR can restore the value and appearance to any car, truck or SUV. Re-bending and shaping of damaged metal panels with PDR are many times returned to their original state without adding any materials to the surface area. PDR can remove door dings, creases, dents and other damage to metal panels without painting. Protecting the original factory paint finish of your new or used vehicle should be a concern for anyone looking to protect their automotive investment. PDR removes the unsightly dings and dents while simultaneously retaining the value of your original finish by not adding fillers or paints
Another emerging service within the emerging automotive reconditioning industry is Plastic Bumper Repair; the fashion in which plastic bumpers are repaired and repainted. For years, the body shops and car dealerships have been providing with one option pertaining to bumper repair…replacement. Cases of minor scratches, scuffs and gauges we’re reason enough to purchase a new plastic bumper and have it painted and installed. After new part has been painted and installed the old bumper ends up in the junkyard, costing the customer even more money. New techniques to repair the plastics in bumpers have finally emerged. Currently plastic bumper repair saves customers approx 2/3 off replacement cost. Repairs involve sanding, filling, repainting and clear coat protection; much like traditional bodywork. But unlike traditional repairs which take days or even weeks, plastic bumper repair is completed in just hours at a fraction of the cost. In cases where plastic bumpers are dented, punctured or torn; they can still be repaired in just one day. When a plastic bumper is damaged too severely for repairs, paint and installation of new and refurbished bumpers continues to be an option.
Along with this emergence of skilled technicians and dedicated auto reconditioning experts come the fakes. Reports of con-men driving around town in their unmarked vehicles claiming to be discount repair experts have also begun to surface. In order to protect yourself from being taken advantage of by allowing your vehicle to undergo inferior repair methods is to make sure the business is fully licensed and insured. The business should also be in good standing with the Better Business Bureau and Bureau of Automotive Repair as well.
