Door Dings in Hybrid and Electric Vechiles in Texarkana

As we progress into the future and technology improves, more car manufacturers choose to develop and manufacture electric vehicles for the automotive market. It’s the future of the automotive world. Companies like Tesla produce exclusively all-electric vehicles, while companies like Porsche, Volkswagen, Honda, and Ford are slowly transitioning to a fully electric lineup. As the landscape changes into this new era in automotive manufacturing, so does the repair process of these vehicles. While the techniques remain virtually unchanged, processes and procedures evolve to help ascertain the safety and security of our technicians. We have gone the extra mile at Texarkana PDR to maintain our technicians’ safety and your electric vehicle during the PDR process. Dents happen in all kinds of vehicles, and we are prepared to fix them in your Hybrid or Electric Vehicle. We have obtained our Electric Vehicle Power Down Certification. With this certification, we can safely power down your electric vehicle so that PDR can be performed on it without risk of damage or injury.

 

Electric Vehicles have a battery core in addition to power cables that run throughout the vehicle. It’s imperative to understand where these cables are located and where they connect. During the PDR process, we use a variety of sharp metal tools to repair dents from the underside of your vehicle’s body panels, and failure to possess the knowledge of where these cables are located can result in the injury (or an untimely death) of the technician and damage to your vehicle. If a careless, non-certified technician were to puncture one of these cables, they run the risk of frying themselves and that, my friends, is not good. We can safely power down your electric vehicle at Texarkana PDR, making it virtually harmless for the PDR technician to work on. Once the PDR process is complete, we can power up the vehicle safely as per the manufacturer’s specifications and instructions, and the car is all ready to go!

Different Kinds of Small Dent Repair | Preferred Paintless Services Texarkana

Texarkana Small Dent Repair

Despite its explosive popularity, paintless dent repair has been around as long as the first street cars. It was used as a way to repair vehicles in production lines to prepare them for shipping and resale (It was difficult to sell a damaged car, even back then.) This basic process only used a tablespoon to press the dents back into place, and has since evolved to include professional training and equipment. Now, the industry is booming more than ever, and Texarkana small dent repair techs can repair most kinds of minor body damage.

What Causes a Minor Dent?

In order to start repairing a dent, we first need to know where it came from; and what kind of damage it has done. Small dents can come from a number of sources that each have a large impact on how we decide to remove it:

Hail Damage

Hail storms are a drivers worst nightmare. If you thought one small dent was bad, try dozens of tiny craters all over the surface of your car. Hail damage can mean much more than just a few unsightly blemishes. The damage left by hail stones is actually considerable and, if large enough, can even cause serious harm to the integrity of your vehicle. One of the most common disasters we see accompany a recent hail storm is interior electrical damage. Large hail stones can crack paint and break windows on impact leaving your interior exposed. The hail then melts and leaks into the most fragile parts of your vehicle.

Door Dings

Crowded parking lots and garages create an environment that attracts small dents like a magnet. Oblivious passengers and excited children open their doors quickly, bumping the car next to them, and creating a ding or crease. Normally, these kinds of dents are no problem to fix; but sometimes they can create sharp valleys that are not easy to get rid of.

Fender Benders

Many drivers think that collision damage, no matter what, has to be repaired by a body shop; however, in the case of low speed bumper or fender benders they can often be fixed for a fraction of the price paintlessly.
