It's Your Right to Pick the Shop You Want

Working with Insurance Companies. It’s your right to pick the shop you want! 

Insurance companies want you to use their contracted shop. Many direct repair shops work on the insurance company’s behalf, not yours.  It is actually an illegal business practice for an insurance company to tell you that we have to use a certain shop or choose one from a list of shops. You, the vehicle owner, can choose any auto body repair shop you desire. To convince you to use one of their contracted shops they will toe the line as close to the law as possible by saying things such as; “We cannot warranty the job unless done at one of these shops…” “You may face delays by going elsewhere…” Don’t fall for insurance company scare tactics. A reputable shop will fully warranty their paint and fully guarantee workmanship.

At BumperDoc we feel it is most important that the customer feel comfortable with where they take their vehicle for repair. We are not under contact with any insurance companies because we want to be beholding to you, the customer, and not the insurance company who could force us into practices we feel are not in the customer’s best interest.

BumperDoc uses Sikkens Waterbourne paint. It is one of top rated auto paints on the market, is environmental friendly, and comes with a lifetime warranty. BumperDoc fully guarantees our workmanship. Do your homework, ask trusted friends for recommendations, check Google, Yelp, and Angie’s List reviews, and talk to the people at the shop. Make sure the shop you choose will represent your interests, not the Insurance Companies!

The PDR method has been used by new and used automobile dealerships for years before the public was ever aware of the process. Auto body shops also use PDR to rapidly speed up repairs when suitable, therefore enabling the customer to obtain their vehicle in a shorter period of time.

Santee Bumper Repair Service

vid1

Plastic bumpers don’t always need to be replaced when damage occurs, instead they can be saved with innovative auto reconditioning techniques. Plastic Bumper Repair can repair most scuffed, scratched, dented, detached and torn bumpers for much less than replacement cost. Many repairs are completed in less than one day. We warranty all work and paint for as long as you own the car.

The average repair begins with reshaping and sanding down the damaged area. When deep scratches and/or gouges exist, polyurethane filler is added that is designed to remain flexible after the completion of the drying stages. Final sanding is then required in order to return the bumper to its original shape and integrity. When the preparation is complete, a coat of primer is applied before the initial color layer is sprayed. Next, the paint code is retrieved directly from your vehicle and used to obtain the perfect formula to match your vehicle’s color.

Then, a generous coat of paint is applied before the car is finally sealed with a clear coat application to protect the finish. The process is completed with a thorough polish to make your vehicle shine. BumperDoc guarantees color match and satisfaction backed by a lifetime warranty.

Santee Paintless Dent Repair - Hail Damage Removal Service

We use a process known as PDR (Paintless Dent Removal), which allows our highly trained team of technicians to repair minor door dings/dents, creases & hail damage on automobiles without paint. This is accomplished by using specialized tools to gently massage the metal from its underside until it returns to original showroom form.

Paint and bodywork contribute to the depreciation of your vehicle but we have the ability to repair minor damage without it! Improve your vehicles appearance and value while saving time and money. Since there is no painting involved in the execution of PDR, color matching problems are a thing of the past.
 
Insurance Companies also recognize the PDR process as "Insurance Friendly" and often recommend it before paint/bodywork is considered (Especially For Hail Damage). PDR is a proven method that high line auto dealers, rental co. and even some paint facilities use to repair minor damage. 

At BumperDoc Santee Paintless Dent our focus is customer satisfaction & convenience. Watch dents disappear as you wait, with repair times ranging from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Servicing Santee and its surrounding counties.  

Paintless Dent Repair Process, What Is It?

PDR (Paintless Dent Repair / Removal) is a method used to eliminate door dings and minor dents from vehicles with special rods and reflective sources. A dent is carefully massaged from the adjacent side of the damaged panel, eventually leaving an unseen repair. This is all made without the use of fillers (such as bondo) or painting, retaining your vehicles original OEM paint finish. PDR jobs won't leave proof of any damage or repair.

PDR is environmentally friendly and Green and about a third of the cost of traditional auto body repair. The PDR method can be accomplished in a matter of minutes and not days. Since there is no painting involved using the PDR method, there is no color matching problems. Insurance firms also recognize the PDR method. The effectiveness and simplicity of removing minor dings, dents and hail damage without depreciating the worth of the vehicle with repainting and fillers makes PDR “insurance welcoming."

Lease Return & Trade Ins

What are Lease Return Re-Charges?


When you return your lease vehicle back to the lessee, it is you that is responsible for any damages the lease company deems as “excessive wear and tear”.

Your car will be inspected when you return it by the lease company or dealership for any areas of damage deemed to be "excessive wear and tear". The cost of repairing any of this damage will be a recharge. The average vehicle owner is charged more than $1,800 when returning their vehicles – often for minor damage such as door dings, bumper scrapes, and minor interior damage. 

Normal vs. Excessive Wear?


Normal wear is the minor and reasonable wear a vehicle endures in everyday, ordinary operation. Normal wear can include a few small door dings, paint scratches, stone chips less than 2 inches in diameter.

Excess wear includes occurrences beyond the normal or ordinary wear a vehicle endures. This includes wear caused by neglect, abuse, damage, poor maintenance, changing the vehicle’s appearance or using inferior parts and materials for repairs. Most damage over 2 inches in diameter fall into this category.

 

How Can Bumper Doc Save You Money on Your Lease Return?

Let BUMPER DOC give you a FREE End-Of-Lease Inspection! Our professional team will examine your vehicle for damage that you will likely be charged for when your lease expires. BUMPER DOC’s full-service auto reconditioning center can help you keep some of this money in your pocket.
