PDR and Mobile Auto Body n Paint Go Hand n Hand – Auto Reconditioning

Back in the early days of auto reconditioning everyone was operating separately. Nobody interacted with each other. Some still do but why? More and more divisions are combining their services to work hand and hand with each other. If you notice, there seems to be a need for the other at one point or another. If it’s not PDR, it’s bumper repair. If it’s not bumper repair, it’s a panel spot repair, wheel repair and so on and so on.

Networking seems to be the new thing. PDR companies either use or have their own paint guy and vise versa with the mobile paint n body. Actually, the mobile paint n body guys love working with PDR guys. It cuts down the repair time by 1-2 hours in some cases. In benefit, less or no filler is needed, which leads to a better repair. Everyone wins. Customer and technician.

We always say, work smarter, not harder. Our opinion, we think the future of auto reconditioning is about groups of companies either networking tightly or joining forces to work together as a team. The results are usually fantastic but it all depends on professionalism. On-time, dependable and quality is a must.

As you see in the video, a PDR tech is used to help level the dent without using a lot of filler. In most cases, little or no filler is used at all. This seems to be a very good selling point to the customer who may have a concern. It also shows that a company is going the extra mile to help retain the appearance of their vehicle as well.

A pair of professionals from Orange County, California -Vince from DentsNoMore.com and Rick from MobilePaint.net were the team who worked hand n hand.


Automotive Reconditioning Protection Plans Are Becoming Standard with Dealerships.

More and more dealerships are gaining opportunity to sell automotive reconditioning plans such as; windshield repair, interior / leather repair and the newest addition, paintless dent removal (PDR).

One major company promoting these up-sale packages is Dent Zone.  Dent Zone is a company who provides the service for the sponsored manufactures. Packages are presented to the dealerships at a set price and the dealerships sell the packages for what ever they wish. This package is geared not only for the new car owner but EVEN an existing customer who visits the service center for normal service. In other words, this package can be offered for pre-existing damage. So, if a customer comes in for regular maintenance, the service drive has an opportunity to sell the “Ding Plan” right then and there. Even if the customer has dings or no dings they can be covered.

 How Long is the coverage and how much? 

For the public, it will range from $300-$800 depending how many years (paintless dent removal). Most dealers will be selling plans from 1-5 years. Now this can good or bad for a PDR tech. Good for the PDR tech who is already servicing the account. Bad for the outside PDR companies who try to target retail. Bad, the customer can be stuck with a PDR company who isn’t capable or not willing to cover the plan to his/her best ability.

When is this going to be in effect? NOW! It’s happening already and just approved from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in California.
