Used cars are awesome, and you'll see plenty of them on the roads these days! Affordability makes them quite appealing, and it doesn't take long for the new owner to feel at home in the driver's seat.

That being said, your used car can come with its fair share of dings and dents, plus an overall sad appearance in some cases; how can you clean it up to make it something you're proud of?

Dent Heads is here to help. Contrary to our name, we don't just handle dent fixing, but plenty of services that can spruce up your broken-in ride and make it look like new. Below, you'll learn just a smidge about them!

1. Remove Dents & Door Dings With Paintless Dent Repair

You'd be hard-pressed to find a used car that doesn't have its share of door dings, but luckily, we can take care of those, too. As we covered in our car dent repair blog, they can and do rust, whether they've got paint on them or not.

Paintless dent repair- It's our bread and butter, our meat and potatoes, whatever you want to call it – we made our name off this type of car dent repair, and for good reason. As an affordable way to fix up a car's exterior, paintless dent repair is an excellent first-choice service for those who have just got their hands on a less-than-factory-fresh vehicle.

The process involves using specialized tools and finesses to manipulate a car's exterior and "pop" it back into place. The benefits can't be denied; it's quick, green, and PDR is far more affordable for your used car to undergo a smidge of dent repair than to replace the entire part once it does degrade!

2. Restore Your Headlights to Optimum Brightness

Headlight restoration is another topic we love to discuss, considering it's a great, safety-boosting investment for used cars. Because these cars are, well, used, their headlights are subject to chemical and UV damage, which can make them blurry and decrease your visibility on the road.

This might not seem like a huge issue during daylight hours, but as night falls, you'll certainly notice it!

Headlight restoration from Dent Heads buffs away cloudy residue, leaving your headlights as bright and brilliant as the day your used car rolled off the factory line. In a way, it's like turning back the clock.

3. Add Paint Protection Film

Between scratches, bird excrement, and rock chips, your vehicle's paint job will take a beating, and consistently fixing the blemishes can cost you big time. Paint protection film is a thermoplastic urethane material applied to your vehicle's paint, designed to help prevent damage from common issues like road debris, tree SAP, bugs, and sand.

Our XPEL Ultimate Plus has a 10-year manufacturer's warranty, which gives you years of worry-free protection for all your over-the-road experiences.

4. Repair Windshield Rock Chips

The last thing you want to deal with when you're driving down the road is hearing a rock hit your windshield, and while this may seem like a small issue, it will affect the entire integrity of the glass. The chip size will let you know if it's repairable, and if it didn't go more than halfway through the windshield, chances are it can be fixed.

Our rock chip repair team can get your glass fixed up in a jiffy. We always offer a free quote, and because we know your time is important, we'll get you a convenient loaner vehicle to reduce the interruption in your day.
