No matter how old your car, truck, or SUV is, the paint is not impervious to damage. If you aren’t certain whether or not you should have your vehicle repainted, answer the questions below. If the answer to any of them is “yes,” call Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance.

Autobahn Collision Center has been helping people with auto body and collision repairs for decades. Our shops are full of techs and painters who understand the most effective methods for restoring your vehicle, and they perform their work quickly without taking shortcuts. If you want to find out how much it will cost to restore a classic vehicle, or your car was damaged in an accident and you need to find a shop that will work to bring it back to life, call Autobahn today.

Were You In an Accident?

Even a minor fender-bender can be enough to badly damage the paint on your vehicle. Serious accidents will cause severe damage to your paint, and they may have caused problems with your car’s body and even some of the components necessary for it to run safely.

If you find scrapes or large patches of damaged paint, it is a good idea to call our shop. When you bring your car in, we will perform a thorough inspection to check for damage to the paint, body, and mechanical components in order to provide you with an estimate.

Is Your Paint Discolored?

When you drive a truck, SUV, or car for a long time, the paint will eventually discolor. Look at old photos of your vehicle and then compare it to the way it looks now. If you see a noticeable difference in the color of the paint, it may be time to call Autobahn.

If you just hate the way the your vehicle looks, get in touch with us. We can restore it to its former glory or we can repaint it to a color that you love. When you work with Autobahn, almost anything you can imagine is possible.

Is Your Paint Peeling?

Peeling paint, no matter what the cause, is a good indication that it is time for new paint. While peeling paint is ugly, it could also cause problems with the integrity of your car’s body. Don’t let rust or corrosion get in — call Autobahn!

Contact Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance or stop by for a free quote on new paint, body repairs, or a restoration. We have two convenient locations — one on Hawthorne and another on Western — so make sure to come see us as soon as possible.

Remember, you have the right to choose whichever shop you want, so don’t let them force you to go to a shop you don’t trust.

When you have been in an accident and your car isn’t in great shape, it is a good idea to bring your vehicle in to a professional collision repair shop. Below, you’ll find three perks to having a professional auto body shop restore your vehicle.

Call Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance today. Our technicians have the experience, the knowledge, and the tools necessary to complete even the most complex repairs in a timely manner without sacrificing quality. We believe in our work so much that every repair we make is covered by a lifetime warranty. After an accident, make sure to have your car towed to Autobahn. We will provide you with a free estimate, and we will even deal with your insurance company for you.

Professional Repairs Look Better

There are a lot of people out there who think that with a little work, along with some stuff they buy at their local chain retailer, they can make their car look brand new after an accident. The fact is, without years of experience and training, your results just won’t look as good.

Professional repairs:

  • Allow for perfect paint. Even if you can find professional paint, do you have a paint booth? What about professional spray guns? Do you know how to blend paint in order to match undamaged areas? Like anything else, experience pays off when it comes to paint. If you want your truck, car, or SUV to look great, you should trust the pros.
  • Mean properly repaired panels. While anyone can go to an auto parts store and buy some bondo, a professional has spent years refining their technique using the best materials, and the results speak for themselves.
  • From Autobahn Collision Center come with a lifetime warranty. If you make a mistake, you’re on the hook for it. If we make one, we take care of it for you, free of charge.
Professional Repairs Will Last

Unlike the materials you could find at a big box store, Autobahn uses the strongest, most reliable materials and parts available. From paint to bolts, we know that everything we use to repair your vehicle will hold up for many years to come. Superior parts and materials means superior repairs that look better and last much longer than what you would get using cheap parts.

Professional Repairs Can Keep You Safer

Unless you are a mechanic, you might not know what an accident has done to the structural integrity of your vehicle. Our technicians begin every job by completing a comprehensive inspection that checks for damage that could make your car less safe.

Our frame repairs are completed using state-of-the-art equipment that ensures the most accurate adjustments for a better, safer ride. Modern frames are designed to direct the energy from a crash away from the cabin in order to prevent injuries. With a damaged frame, that energy could be dangerous.
Our inspection will check for damage to your bumpers, wheels, brakes, and other essential safety systems. A damaged bumper is no laughing matter — if you get into another accident without replacing or repairing your bumper, the damage to your vehicle, and the people inside it, can be severe.

Stop by or call Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance today to learn more about the wide array of auto body repair services we offer. We have two convenient locations — one off Western Ave. and one on Hawthorne Blvd. — which means you’re never far from trustworthy repairs and unmatched customer service.

Bring your vehicle in today and we will handle everything, even dealing with your insurance company. It is our goal to make a difficult situation much easier to handle.

Do you have a new car or an older model that you’ve taken great care of over the years? Do you live in fear that a hail storm or a stray rock flung by a semi on the freeway will dent your otherwise pristine vehicle? Has it already happened?

While we understand the frustration and heartbreak that comes with seeing a dent on your truck, SUV, or car, there is a way to fix these problems without having to pay a lot of money for repairs and auto paint: paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair is one of the fastest and most affordable methods for removing dents from your vehicle.

Call Autobahn Collision Center in Torrance to find out if this method of auto body repair is right for your car, SUV, or truck. In addition to PDR, we are a full-service collision repair center that can restore even the most damaged vehicles back to the way they should look. If you need frame repairs, auto paint, or any other type of body repairs, call us or stop by either of our shops today.

Paintless Dent Repair Can Be Used to Fix:
  • Hail damage
  • Dings
  • Dents
  • Creases

As long as the paint is intact, chances are good that we can perform paintless dent removal! PDR costs a fraction of what other kinds of repairs cost, and the results look spectacular!

The Right Touch and the Right Tools

Our technicians will be able to quickly find and repair many kinds of dents. Even if they have to remove other panels in order to reach a dent, they can do this in a fraction of the time it would take to prep and paint, and without causing any other problems. Whether the dent, ding, or crease is on a metal panel or a plastic one, our techs will do everything they can to gently restore the panel back to its original shape.

Thanks to specialized tools and years of experience, the work that our techs do is so good that most people can’t tell where the dents were in the first place!

Are you getting ready to sell your vehicle but you are worried that small dents in the doors, bumpers, or hood will drastically lower the amount of money you will be able to sell it for? Let Autobahn Collision Center remove those dents for a low price, so you can reap a bigger sales price! PDR is also an excellent method for removing dents from vehicles driven by the more accident-inclined members of your family.
