BMW 5 Series Dent Repair – October 25, 2010. Living in Minnesota, most people become accustom to seeing deer. Driving down the road and spotting a deer can be scary, even dangerous. But seeing a deer run through your front lawn wouldn’t necessarily bring that same fear of a collision between your car and a large buck. Unless you share a similar story with Dwayne.
Dwayne brought his BMW 5 Series to Dent Kraft to see if there was anything we could do to help. He explained to us that early one morning, he looked out his front window and saw a deer running across his lawn. The animal was headed in the direction of his driveway where his BMW was parked. As Dwayne had recently purchased his 5 Series, he was a bit concerned the deer may have bumped the side of the car or scratched it. To his surprise, there was nothing wrong with the doors, fenders or bumpers. Instead, the deer decided to go OVER the car!
The result was an extremely large dent with many minor scratches in the roof and rails. Although this is much larger than most dents we normally repair, we decided we were up for a challenge.
Previous estimates from body shops indicated they would need to cut the entire roof off the car and replace it with a new panel. After that, the roof would need to be coated with primer, sanded and painted. Blending would also need to be applied to match the metallic paint job. The entire process would amount to several thousands of dollars. On top of that, the structure and safety of the vehicle could have been compromised through this process.
Through metal manipulation, we are able to “massage” the panel back to it’s original shape without damaging the structure of the vehicle or harming the paint. This technique preserves the original, factory finish of the car. The process of Paintless Dent Removal also saves the individual time and money. This was repaired at a fraction of the cost that a body shop would charge to repair and paint the panel.
Paintless Dent Removal not only saves you money for the repair cost, but can save you money on your insurance costs as well. A dent that is taken to the body shop for repair will likely be over your insurance deductible. In many circumstances, an insurance claim will be filed, possibly raising your rates. That same dent can be repaired using Paintless Dent Removal at a cost below your insurance deductible. Therefore a claim does not need to be filed, saving you money in the long run.
The end result turned out excellent, and with a good buff job, most of the scratches were removed or diminished greatly. Dwayne was very pleased and decided to write a review about us in Angie’s List which can be viewed below.
Dent Kraft PDR is also green, as we do not use any chemicals in the Paintless Dent Removal process.
