Are The Little Dings Getting To You?

Sam’s Auto Body and Paint would love to work on your car, removing all of the dents, dings, paint transfers, deep scratches, and other body and paint damage that may have happened to your car. Today we’d like to take a moment to remind you just how much better you will feel when your car is looking better! It won’t increase the performance of your engine, but driving around with those dents and scratches isn’t always a good idea.

We work with insurance! A lot of dents, dings, scratches, and body damage is covered by insurance, especially if the damage is caused by an accident or collision. Some damage doesn’t need to be fixed right away, or insurance companies won’t want to work with you to get it fixed, but we work with nearly every insurance company to get you what you need!

How Damage Affects Mood: Some of us see our cars as an extension of ourselves. Some of us consider our cars to be our babies, our pride and joy. We don’t want you to have hurt pride or cringe at the sight of your car because a shoddy auto body shop got their hands on it. We want to repair as much of the damage as humanly possible, providing great quality work at reasonable prices. Seeing your car all beat up or with faded paint is sure to remind you of that fender bender, the time you hit a light pole, or whatever caused the problem. We’d like to help wipe those memories away quickly and efficiently.

How Damage Affects Efficiency: It usually doesn’t affect your car much, but depending on the size and location of a dent or ding, it can cause increased drag, and more severe body damage can lead to internal problems, scraping parts, or other less-than-desirable effects. Faded paint may expose your car to the elements, causing rust and erosion! Proper maintenance of the body of your car is almost as important as keeping the engine running smoothly.

Aesthetic problems: We’ve all seen those cars driving around with bumpers falling off, car doors nearly crushed, and wondered how they’re still driving! We don’t want you to be that driver, and we’d love to do what we can to get you back on the road looking great. We’ve been known to take on projects other companies refuse to, taking cars which would have been sent to the scrap yard and repairing them to great conditions! The real pros can take almost any body or paint damage and bring the life back into the car!

If you have insurance, get us in touch with your agents to start the repair work today. If your damage is not covered by insurance, let us know and we’ll discuss the cost and your options. Even without insurance, we’re the best around and offer amazing prices.

How to Avoid Getting Ripped Off by Insurance Companies During Auto Body Repairs

Tags : 

Having a damaged car body is very upsetting. What could be more upseting is when you need your insrance company to help with the repairs as promised and they don’t deliver for one sort of bureaucratic nonsense or the other.

Oh, yeah when they came up to you selling their insurance company, insurance policies, low premium rates and how they care about your best interest and all that you believed. You were moved and touched. That’s all junk. When it comes right down to the point where they should play their part and do everything they professed, their so-called core values and ethics are thrown out the window.

collision repair

You may have read and heard a lot on the internet about how insurance companies have put smiles on the faces of their customer, nope, that’s all a stunt. In the real world, they don’t give 2 cents about your best interest. How else are they going to make their money if they actually did?

After a collision, they present you with a list – Direct Repair shop list – of auto body repair shops they recommend, you’re going through this list and thinking “why is ABC Auto Body Shop not here? I know those guys, they might be pricey but the quality of service is top notch – a sterling A-grade”. Do you want to know why? They prefer shops that service cars at low prices. The parts are absolute junk, it’s they don’t fit in your car or aren’t made or recommended by car manufacturers. All just so they will save money on the cost of repairing your vehicles. They’ll do what they can to make you pick a shop from that DRP list even when you know what you want.

Most reputable body shops have strained relationships with insurance companies. You can figure out why that’s so.

In a very foul mood, Ron Perretta owner of Professionals Auto Body speaks his mind about insurance companies in a YouTube video, calling them dishonest. You can find it below. He describes the replacement parts DRP shops use for repairs as junk and imitations.

He goes on to say “insurance companies are bad, they think they can kick you around until you do what they want like they do their contracted shops.”

When you notice your insurance company trying to kick you around, dump them, you can do better. Don’t allow yourself to be intimidated, instead look for an insurance company that has a cordial relationship with reputable auto body repair shops.

Paint job for your Car Body: Keep it shiny

Tags : 

When people show off their cars, the shiny body is one of the most attractive features of the car. I mean, these days, if your car can’t throw off a very sharp reflection, then there’s probably a problem with the paint job. You can easily tell if a car is brand new from how shiny the body is. And the same goes for a car that has been repainted. You can spot a bad paint job from a mile away.

If you care for your car body and you want it to shine all year round, you should read this post. It’ll be cool to say there’s a secret to it, but there really isn’t. In fact, we’re giving this away to our blog readers for free. Read on.

Paint job for your Car Body: Keep it shiny

This is exactly why our suggestion would be for them to show their love by trying Sam’s Auto Body & Paint’s auto painting services. It would be the makeover their car needs and since their car only deserves what is best, then it would be only fitting to ask our team of experts for help.

auto painting

Although auto painting does not seem to be such a big deal, it is highly important for it to be done right, by a professional and with the right kind of products. If done right, an auto painting may even spare the owner of ever having to take the car to an auto body shop for the same type of treatment in the future. This is mainly because most of the paint brands we use here at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint offer a lifetime warranty. When this lifetime warranty is combined with our extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled technicians, it leads to some of the best paint jobs in Phoenix, Arizona.

Reasons to do Auto Painting

There are countless various reasons why someone would take their car to an auto body shop for auto painting. The most obvious reason would, of course, be the fact that the car is the lucky survivor of a collision and it needs some touching up. When it comes to scratching and areas with chipped paint, auto painting becomes really tricky. First of all, we need to match the color of your car.

Paint Blending

This means that most of the times we even have to contact the manufacturer so that we can order the same type of paint. Second of all, in auto painting, there is a technique that is called paint blending, a technique that seems to be ignored by most auto painting shops. Basically, a skilled technician would make sure that the new coat of paint doesn’t have harsh lines or defined edges. These harsh lines make the paint job incredibly obvious, whereas if the paint is properly blended, the car will look as good as new.

Weather damage

One other reason why people resort to auto painting for their cars is weather damage. When a car spends most of its time outside in the sun and rain, its paint can fade and lose shine. However, there is no need to feel sorry for it, because it can be fixed by our amazing auto painting technicians. No matter why or how you want to change the paint on your car, all you need to do is give us a call and we will take care of the rest!

Rejuvenating your auto body paint takes a few steps. The steps begin with preparing the body of the car for the new coat of paint. This is done by power wash, removing grease with a layer of grease remover and the car is sanded down completely. Then the car is prepped for painting by covering certain areas (like the headlights, tires, and windows) with plastic covering to protect them from being painted. After this, the car is ready to be painted. The color paint is applied evenly on the body, then a clear coat is applied over this to give the car a shiny look. The car is then parked in huge dryers so that the paint will set and dry completely. Viola! A new complexion for your car.

Collision Repair in Phoenix | First Aid for Auto Body Damage

Tags : 

It’s scary, it’s heart-wrecking but thankfully, you’re okay. You manage to get out of the wreckage unscathed. But your car didn’t. It looks crushed, a shadow of it’s former self. It’s easy to panic now and wonder what next to do. But don’t worry, stay calm. You’re in safe hands, let’s tell you what to do next.

Auto Body Damage due to collision
Auto Body Damage due to collision

1. Stop the Car

If your vehicle is still on the move when it happened, you’ll want to pull over. There’s nothing to gain by driving on when your car is damaged because one way or the other, sooner or later, the car will come to a halt and what better place for that but the scene of the Collison. Once you pull over, try to collect your thoughts and remember to keep calm. Taking deep long breaths is a great way to calm yourself.

2. Switch on Your Hazard Lights

Just before you exit your vehicle, turn on the hazard lights. The switch is usually labeled two concentric triangles. After turning on the lights, you and other occupants of the vehicle should get out in a safe and orderly fashion. Make sure not to put yourself in harm’s way when you all get out.

3. Call 911

Once out of harms ways, call 911. Don’t assume the other party has already made the call. Make the call yourself, it won’t hurt if multiple calls were made concerning the accident. When the cops arrive, cooperate with them and respond to their inquiries. They are well trained in handling road accidents.

4. Gather Important Info and Take Pictures

While this may seem unnecessary and work for the cops, you should do it as it can help speed up your insurance claim.

5. Don’t Waste Time Throwing Blames

While it’s important to discuss with the other party, it is also very important not to discuss who’s at fault and all. Be polite with them, remember they just went through the same experience. At this point after a collision accident, discussing who’s to blame can cause tempers to flare and that won’t do for anyone. Leave the conversation for your insurance agent.

6. Call Your Insurance Company

You should do this after calling 911. Your insurance company needs to know about the accident. Submit all the info you’ve been able to gather in their absence to them so that all the paperwork for the repairs of your car is done swiftly.

7. Call Sam’s Auto Body and Paint Collision Repair in Phoenix

Call us and we can have your car towed for you from the scene of the collision unless you feel your car is able to move from the scene. However, we advise you tow it so as not to damage the car further. We can also repair your car to its former glory once you finish everything with your insurance company.

3 Ways We Can Give Your Car a “New Year, New Me” Gift

Have you ever wondered just how it is possible for a car to go into an auto body shop all messed up and come out looking as if it was new? Of course it’s not magic! It just involves some dedication, hard work and a lot of knowledge. We are going to tell you about a few auto body repair techniques that we use here at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint.

Buffing

auto body repair
Buffing

This is one of the easiest, simplest and cheapest auto body repair techniques to fix a damaged car. However, “damaged” may not be the best word for it. This technique is generally used when it comes to minor damage to your car. We are talking here about minor to moderate scratches that can occur in various ways. It may be an errant shopping cart, a poor first cycling attempt your kid had, or even an unsuccessful parking attempt (we don’t blame and we definitely don’t want to judge anyone).

The bottom line is that when it comes to auto body repair, a skillful technician could fix these minor problems by buffing out any scuffs that might appear on the paint surface.

2. Dent repairs

DSCF5994
Dent repairs

Believe it or not, as far as auto body repair goes, dents are the most frequent problems we need to fix. If you are lucky enough to only have a minor dent and no damaged paint, this issue is definitely not a problem to a professional.

Of course, this auto body repair technique is a bit more complicated and it takes longer than a simple buffing, but in the end your car will look as good as new. The metal can be easily put back into place (this requires some pulling, pushing and even a gentle massage from time to time) and made to look as if nothing had happened.

3. Fender bender

The second most frequent problem we need to fix here at Sam’s Auto Body & Paint is fender benders. The best course of action, in this case, would be replacing the dented or damaged fenders, so that the owner can avoid any long – term issues such as chipping or corrosion. However, considering the fact that replacing the fender is more expensive, most car owners ask us to repair the damaged ones.

This auto body repair technique is a bit more complicated and it includes more steps. The fender is first straightened then it is sanded all the way to the metal. The area is coated with a body – filler that needs to cure. After it has cured, the body – filler is also sanded until the surface is smooth. The last step of this auto body repair technique is the paint job and after that, the fender will surely look great.

The bottom line is that you can count on us, regardless of how serious the damage is. There are a lot more auto body repair techniques that we frequently use in order to fix any kind of problem. If you need our help, don’t hesitate to call, or even pay us a visit at 22018 N 24th Ave Phoenix, Arizona 85027.
