Dent Doctor Franchise
Dent Doctor is a franchise for a business providing dent repair that is paint free. It was founded in 1986 by Thomas Harris in Little Rock, Arkansas.
They provide free estimates and 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. They use a process in which the dents are fixed without having to go through costly repairs. The service is done and completed that same day and if the damage is not big, you can even wait for it. That will help you save a lot of time. What they do is keep the original finish of your car which helps maintain or minimize the turn back of your cars value. They say that not everyone who offers Paint free Debt Repair (PDR) can provide a guaranteed best result. They are insurance approved which means that they are highly recommended by insurance companies. They also have a lifetime guarantee if the vehicle repaired is yours. They donate free repairs to organizations like YWCA. They now have 14 locations in the United States, one in Canada, one in another country, and one that is company owned.
What is Paint-Free Dent Repair?
This is the process wherein the backside of the dent is where they fix it. They dent is gently pressured from the inside until it is back to its original form. This way, the original finish is not affected and there would be no need to do a costly repaint job and the hassle of having to wait so many days to claim back your vehicle.
The process does not use any heat, dry ice or suction. This means that it is guaranteed that it will not just pop back as a dent and therefore, it is a permanent repair. To accomplish this job, they hire professional and train them in the field to be able to provide the highest quality paint-free dent repair. The franchisees benefit from the speed that this process takes because the lesser time it takes to finish the job, the more customers they get to serve and the more they will earn. Dent Doctor also has the On-Site Paint-Free Dent Repair Hail Repair Experts which is a team that works with a Dent Doctor EXPRESS affiliates. By becoming an affiliate, insurance referrals are maximized.
