    small dent removal

    anyone know of any good shops in des moines that do small dent removal on cars?

    had someone smack their car door into my month old new car and i would like to get it fixed as soon as i can. and it's not just a small dent, it's more of a crease dent.

    do dealerships do stuff like that?

    Re: small dent removal

    Dent Eliminators in Urbandale. They took out a crease dent in the tailgate of my week old truck and charged my $75. Very reasonable

    If there is any paint work to be done, they will match the paint and they put a hardener in the paint so when you take it off the lot when they are done, you can run it through a car wash instead of waiting for the paint to cure for 30-45 days.

    I've used them quite a few times ***don't ask*** and have been pleased every time I have been there.

    That would most likely be a guy from Dent Eliminators who drives around to local auto body shops and dealerships.

    Auto Artists in Urbandale. Fast, inexpensive, and good. Most of the car dealerships in the area use them to touch up resells.

    i actually just got off the phone with them, i have a new toyota and they told me to call them.

    the only thing i'm scared of is that on the panel, is a raisedm angled molding type line that that goes the length of the car horizontally. so the car door that hit me created a vertical crease dent on that line. so i'm not sure if that'll be fixable or not.

    I had a dent that a body shop told me I wouldn't be able to get it to look right unless they puttied it and feathered out new paint....... and charge me $650 to do it. I paid Dent eliminators $75 and I can't find it today no matter how hard I look.

    Time heals all wounds so I can talk about it now without breaking something.

    Bought my first brand new truck.

    - The day I pick it up, in figuring the best way to back into garage I backed into my motorcycle twice putting pressure dents in the tailgate(Thank you Regency for building small *** garages). DE fixed it up
    - not even a week later, the wife had the truck, pulled it into the garage and thought she was far enough ahead and closed the door. Should have been a couple inches further. Scratched the heck out of the same tailgate I just paid to get the dents out. Dented it along a a crease line and they made it look like new. (Example I talked about above)
    - I took the motorcycle to pick up the truck when it was done and had a guy help me load the bike in my truck. Got it home and was back it in the drive way when the long strap that I thought I got secured was flying behind me. I back over it backing into the driveway with the tire which tightened the strap enough where it took some paint off the bumper. I was not happy. Got that fixed
    - somebody backed into something and put two dents in the tailgate in almost the identical place where they were first off. DE came out and fixed.
    - Took the motorcycle to work one day and left the truck in the driveway. The wife is late to pick up the kids from school and goes flying back out of the garage without looking and dents both our van and my new truck by backing the drives side rear of the van into the front passenger side of the truck. Hell we were customers of the week, month and 1/2 year. Was on a first name basis with half the guys in the darn shop.

    +1 to Auto Artists. Mike is great to work with. -1 to Acheson. I will never use Acheson again after they ruined a car in the process of repairing hail damage.

    Re: small dent removal

    A couple years ago while cleaning up from an ice storm, my husband figures out that if he uses a broom handle to 'lightly tap' the ice on his truck it breaks and falls off. When done removing the ice, he realizes that each tap dented his hood. He had over 30 dents all over the head and front quarter panels.

    (Yes, I found it hysterical, but kept my laughter to myself)

    A local body shop told him it was going to cost around $1500 to fix. Total frrrrreak out on his part.

    Then we found Xtreme Autoworx, Xtreme Autoworx - Des Moines Iowa used car dealer, body shop, auto detailing and paintless dent-removal. He did a fabulous job - maybe can see a couple of the dents in the right light - and he only charged $350. AND, the owner is a former Cyclone football player!
