Almost Everything's Cars of the Day are a 1997 Toyota Camry and a 1994 Chevrolet Pickup. As you can see in the pictures below, they both had been damaged in a collision and "repaired" by a less than qualified individual. Maybe you have been approached in a parking lot by a person who says they can "fix your dent" for an incredibly low cost. In many instances these "repairs" they are doing are actually causing much more harm than good! They will put on a big show with hammers, drills, unidentified filler matter, spray paint, and a incredible amount of false promises, appearing as if they know exactly what they are doing.
What they are actually doing;
1. Ripping innocent people off by performing shoddy repairs and promising a perfect finish, claiming that "all that is needed is paint" after they are done. Which unfortunately, is far from the truth, since many of these "parking lot repair men" have no professional experience, they improperly lay in inches of thick substance to fill the dents and holes that they created during the "repair". The substances they use are not always automotive body filler, some cars have even come to us with concrete slathered into the sheet metal.
2. Weakening your vehicles structural integrity by the use of improper tools. Drilling holes to pull and repair dents was common in the stone ages of auto body repair, with todays technology we can pull and fill dents the proper way from the outside of the vehicle, with no drilling required. Our non intrusive method of repairing dents retains the strength of the existing body panel, while keeping use of body filler to a minimum.
3. Making proper repairs more costly. When people come to us with these improperly repaired vehicles, it is very hard to break the news to them that they had been scammed out of their hard earned money, and how we want to repair something that had already been "fixed". For a proper repair we have to remove the existing "filler substance", repair, or even sometimes replace panels that have become too badly damaged from either the parking lot repairs or the collision itself.
4. Voiding any chance of a warranty through Almost Everything. We cannot offer any type of warranty on vehicles that have had improper/3rd party repairs performed on them. Instead of having a shady character in a parking lot "repair" your dents, come talk to us. We will be glad to provide you with a free written estimate, professionally fix the damage and offer a warranty, in many instances this covers the repairs for as long as you own the vehicle.
