Hampden Auto Body is a Gold Class Collision Repair Facility


By Mike Ross - September 27, 2017

Hampden Auto Body is honored to celebrate another year of being a Gold Class collision repair facility. We are proud of our ongoing commitment to training and to the safety of our customers.

Gold Class achievement is the recognized industry standard for training that contributes to complete and safe repairs. Only 10 percent of collision repair businesses currently meet the rigorous training requirements necessary to earn the Gold Class designation.
 
Gold Class shops are required to have every technician involved in collision repair take training that is specific to their roles. They must continue with ongoing training each year for the business to maintain its Gold Class status, including classes in new technology.
 
Today’s vehicles are increasingly sophisticated devices featuring an ever-growing number of components, parts and advanced lightweight materials. The constant introduction of new vehicle technologies can result in repair procedures changing significantly from year to year, making current repair knowledge critical for the achievement of complete, safe and quality repairs.

Got Auto Hail Damage?


By Mike Ross - May 9, 2017

Did you recently experience hail damage on your vehicle?  Hampden Auto Body is here to help.  We can assist you with any questions you have about the process, insurance coverage, etc… We specialize in hail repair and paintless dent repair.  We work with all major insurance companies and can help ensure that your vehicle is repaired correctly.

The first step in the process is to call your insurance company to file an auto hail damage claim.  Unfortunately, unless you have comprehensive coverage, your insurance company won’t cover the damage.  Comprehensive coverage covers weather-related damage (like hail damage), vandalism, theft and “acts of God or nature”. Comprehensive claims do not normally affect your insurance premium.  If you claim the hail damage, but do not repair the vehicle, you can be denied coverage on future claims and your vehicle may suffer dramatic loss of value.

Repairs can be accomplished in one of two ways: 1) traditional auto body repair and refinishing and 2) Paintless Dent Repair (PDR).  PDR involves using specially-molded tools to work out the dents from the underside of a damaged part without disturbing the factory finish. The PDR method will not invalidate paint warranties if the repairs are done correctly and by trained technicians.

We have over 34 years of auto body experience and will advise you as to the best method of auto hail repair.  From minor dents caused by small hail to roof replacements from baseball sized hail, our certified technicians can ensure your vehicle is restored to its prior condition.  Call us today to schedule a free estimate at 303-761-0677.
