STEP 4: REPAIR YOUR VEHICLE
We’ll restore your vehicle to its original factory finish. As part of our commitment to you, Garber Collision Center is I-CAR Gold and ProFirst certified (Honda & Acura), providing the highest-quality repairs.
Trust your vehicle to Garber Collision Center for all of your auto dent removal needs. Required when the metal of your vehicle is stretched upon impact, or when the dent is too deep to extract, traditional dent repair is an excellent choice. In most cI-CARs, Garber Collision Center will remove the body panels, taillights, and interior panels as needed to reach the underside of the dent. Typically, Bondo is applied to fill in the dent, and the vehicle is painted using Garber Collision Center’s computerized paint-matching system.
The bumper is designed to protect the vehicle’s structure by absorbing the impact in the event of an accident. Trust your bumper repair to the I-CAR certified technicians at Garber Collision Center. Many bumpers can be repaired to their factory finish, allowing accurate blending of paint in the repair process.
Whether your vehicle is made of aluminum, steel, or carbon fiber, the expert technicians at Garber Collision Center are trained to restore fenders to their pre-accident condition. Our I-CAR and ProFirst certified team carefully repairs the fender by manipulating the material to restore the fender’s original shape and fit. Once the fender is repaired, it is primed, sanded, and painted using a state-of-the-art computer match program, so you can enjoy the newly-restored vehicle you’ve been missing.
Paint chips, scratches, and dings can happen anywhere. Fortunately the I-CAR Gold certified Garber Collision Center provides the industry’s top technicians to get your paint finish looking new again. Starting with a clean surface, the technician at Garber Collision Center preps, primes, and paints the affected area using a state-of-the-art computerized color-matching system. Finishing off with a final buff and polish, as well as a written lifetime warranty, you’ll be on your way in a vehicle that looks good as new!
The experts at Garber Collision Center lead the industry in paintless dent repair. Less invasive than traditional dent removal, paintless dent repair works with the flexibility of original factory paint to restore a vehicle to its factory finish. During the repair process, your expert technician will carefully knead or use suction to relieve the vehicle of the dent without affecting the paint, making for an often times less expensive repair while decreasing turnaround time.

The windshield is actually two sheets of glass, held together by an inner layer of polyvinyl butyrate, supporting up to 70% of the vehicle’s weight in a rollover accident.

Garber Collision Center is I-CAR Gold certified, dedicated to the safety and security of you and your passengers.
