Learn About the Additional Services We Offer

We offer a range of other services that help to increase your vehicle's performance, as well as your driving experience. Our technicians can boost the value of your car, truck, van, or SUV by installing the addition of running boards, bug shield, spoilers, and mud flaps. We can even enhance the look of your vehicle with painted and custom vinyl graphic stripes.

Through the process of paintless dent removal, we can remove small dents in the sheet metal of your vehicle that are caused by storm debris, hailstones, shopping carts, or door dings. If the paint surface is not compromised, this process is usually a more economical repair than the traditional repair process.

As your vehicle ages, your headlights can become cloudy or hazy. Before replacing your headlights, consider our oxidation removal service. This will remove that cloudiness from your headlight lens, making your vehicle not only look better but also letting your lights shine brighter when you need them the most. Our oxidation removal is priced at $25.00 per headlight.

For your convenience, our claims service specialists can assist you with setting up your insurance rental vehicle while your vehicle is with us.
