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.

Body work and repairs all completed.

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.

Never be scared of a new auto body paint job. The price is not alarming in Sams’s auto body and paint. We will give you a free quote and you can then check with your insurance company for certain aspects of the cost they can cover.

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.

Why you shouldn’t DIY Collision Repairs

In this age of information overload, there is bountiful information on the internet on DIY for practically almost every activity. Even those that are better left to professionals. Inasmuch as some of them are amazing ways to save money, there are some things just too important to leave to DIY. Collision repairs is one of them.

A car can be damaged in a lot of different ways, as a result of a collision. Of course, it all depends on the severity of the “crash”. It can sometimes be just a simple dent or even a few scratches. Unfortunately, when it comes to collision repairs, that is the best-case scenario. In the worst-case scenario, your car could be so damaged that not even the most skilled collision repairs technician would be able to fix it.

Collision  repairs in Phoenix, AZ

Regardless of how serious the collision was, there is one thing that we would never recommend, and that is trying to fix the damage yourself. There are countless reasons why this is one of the worst ideas you could have. Even if you feel up for it, and you think that the internet would always be there to help you, collision repairs are not that simple. Even if you think that fixing things yourself is going to save you a lot of money, you will see that in the long run that is exactly the opposite.

Most people who choose to fix the damage themselves, without even talking or consulting with a professional, are more than convinced that the job is going to be a piece of cake. More than that, they somehow believe that if they raid their bathroom and use a plunger and some spray paint, the car will be as good as new. That’s not how collision repairs work, guys!

Let us just explain why that is completely wrong. Even if the only visible damage is a superficial dent, the collision could have left the car far more damaged. Sometimes, the entire frame of the car may need to be straightened, repaired or even replaced. That is a problem that an amateur would never be able to fix or even notice.

Fix this collision damage without hassle near you

One thing every car owner should keep in mind is the fact that their vehicle does not just need to look pretty, but it also needs to be safe. This is exactly why the only way to deal with collision repairs is to take the car to an auto body shop and let professionals take care of it.

We know that finding a reliable auto body shop is an incredibly difficult task.

4 Amazing Perks of Sam’s Auto Body Restoration Service

If you’re reading this, you’re probably considering starting up a new project that has to do with restoring a car. This may be to restore a car that had some previous body problems or you’re looking into restoring an older car that needs some tune-ups and a little work in the body.

Sam’s Auto Body & Paint Auto Body Restoration

Either way, taking a car that’s a little worse for wear and making it into beauty can be very fun and rewarding. Most full restoration projects, when it entails the entire car inside and out, can be pricey and time-consuming. But today we’ll try to help you make your decision.

4 Amazing Perks of Auto Body Restoration Project

#1 Old cars look amazing

Who doesn’t love seeing old muscle cars driving down the road? Or old Ford trucks that look like the ones our grandparents or great-grandparents drove? They can turn heads everywhere they go because when they’re restored correctly, they just look amazing. One major step in restoring these old cars is making sure the body is both in good condition and looks great. Weakened welds, rust spots, and other body damage can make the car look bad and it can be dangerous to drive.

#2 Project cars make great bonding experiences

If you have a son, grandson, or even a daughter or granddaughter who is into cars, restoring an older car can be a lot of fun, and it can help them appreciate what it takes to keep a car looking and running great. Fixing up the engine and the other inner workings of a car can be a great summer project or just a great way to fill in time around holidays or after school or work.

#3 Don’t let bodywork intimidate you

Some people who restore cars will opt to do a lot of the bodywork themselves. It can be quite a time- and energy-consuming to do this on your own and the tools can be costly to purchase and maintain. Bodywork is one of the most important things when working with cars. If you have one bad weld the whole engine can fall out. Leave the bodywork to us and you can rebuild the engine to your exact specifications desired. Getting this done by a professional is a great way to ensure the rest of the project runs as smoothly as possible.

#4 Older cars are solid

Before the popularization of fiberglass, polymers, and plastics used on cars, nearly the entire body was made of metal—especially steel. A lot of these old cars weigh a lot, but if the body is in good shape that thing is going to be solid which can, in some cases, increase the overall safety of the drive. Some people will just always prefer solid metal to a bunch of different materials.

Give us a call for all of your bodywork, even restorative work on older project cars. We’d love to see what you’re working with and help out how we can. We can accomplish a lot of tasks other companies won’t touch.
