Exploring Dent Pulling Procedures

Hey everyone, my name is Ty Baker. I would like to discuss the different ways auto body workers pull dents. The dent pulling process often makes damaged body panels look like new in an instant. Suction based dent pullers are most commonly used, especially on fiberglass panels. However, body repair experts have pullers that screw into or weld onto the damaged vehicle panels. From there, the pros carefully tug the material back into shape. I hope you will learn about this process to help you understand how your vehicle is repaired after a collision. Knowing how the experts approach the job will help you stay stress free throughout the procedure. Thank you for coming by my website about pulling dents out of automotive panels. Please come back soon.

Rear-Ended A Car? Information On How An Auto Body Repair Service Can Repair It

by Jill Robinson

If you backed up into another vehicle, you likely have damage to your own car. Instead of trying to repair this problem on your own, you need to take your car to an auto body repair service. Below is more information to help you understand how an auto body repair services company will fix your car.

Thorough Inspection

The first thing the auto body repair service will do is to thoroughly inspect your car's damage, as there may be even more damage than you are not aware of. For example, the technician will open and close the trunk to ensure it works properly. If not, the trunk could easily fly open while you are driving which could cause you to have another accident.

If you hit the car very hard, this could cause problems with alignment. If so, you will notice that your car pulls to one side as you are driving, or you may feel your steering wheel vibrate or the steering wheel may even wobble. 

There also may be more damage behind the bumper that you cannot see. In many cases, this damage is on the frame that is located behind the bumper. Even though this will not cause a lot of problems for you while driving, it can affect the installation of your new bumper.

How the Car is Repaired

In many cases the repair involves removing the bumper and replacing it with a new one. If the damage is not very bad, you can save money by having the technician repair the dents only. New bumpers can be expensive, but you would also have to pay more in labor charges. 

The auto body repair service has a tool that they can use to pull out small dents. This is a suction cup that is placed over the dent and then the device is pulled quickly.  If the suction cup does not work well, then it is time to get a new bumper. The auto body repair service can find a bumper from the manufacturer of your car to ensure it is the exact same one or they can purchase an aftermarket bumper. 

If there are scratches on the bumper, the auto body repair service can remove these also. They do this by lightly sanding over the scratches to give the are a completely smooth surface and then paint over the scratches. When they are finished, you will never know the scratches were there. 

The auto body shop will go over this information with you in much more detail.
