It's true, we had a fire.  However, we have continued to work and put quality repairs out, just not at our normal rate.  While we have been slowed due to the fire, restoration and remodeling, we will be back to our old selves around here pretty soon.  It all started from static electricity from a highly charged combination of a dirty rag and plastic bumper during a day full of electrical storms.  Not cool.  Our painter was holding the rag when it caught fire, upon dropping the rag and removing it from the booth, our ventilation system sucked the flames through the booth and attached itself to each and every little flammable particle you could imagine exists in an environment such as this.  Quick reaction time from us and super fast response from the Fire dept. saved us and the neighborhoods behind us from real tragedy.  We can overcome this and come back looking and doing better than ever.  Thank you to the community for it's patience and continued support during our recovery.

Slow down and DON'T SWERVE!

We are very excited to see the results of this paint job.  Heidi, the owner, had a wonderful idea for a flat military green paint job and we were able to execute her vision flawlessly.  Thank you Heidi, not only for the work but also the pizza's from Great American Pizza Company, they were delicious.

Your car may have dents. Those dents may have come from a hail storm or a run in with a shopping cart (the shopping cart won) and you’re faced with a decision: do I repair those dents or do I let them slide? 
 
There are several considerations you must make before deciding whether or not to repair car dents. 
 
First and foremost, what is your stance on vehicle appearance? Do you plan on re-selling your vehicle any time soon? Did the hail damage or door ding break through your paint sealant? If so, repairing the dents is the first step you should take for rust prevention.
 
A Worst-Case Scenario for Car Dents
 
If a dent fractures your car’s paint sealant, that compromises the exterior of your car and makes it susceptible to rusting and corrosion over time. This process can occur rather quickly if your car is exposed to the elements, including precipitation, sunshine and salt left on the roads before after and during a winter weather event. If you live near an ocean, the salt water in the air can speed up the process of corrosion.
 
Rust is like a bad rash for your vehicle. It may start with one little dent, and work its way through the body of your vehicle, compromising its appearance while significantly decreasing vehicle value. Rust can also spread to the inner working parts of your vehicle, eating away at valuable components.
 
The Most Likely Scenario – Decreased Vehicle Resale Value
 
Appraisers and car buyers alike take dings and dents seriously.
 
 
It’s why dealerships offer huge discounts when their lot is flooded with hail damaged vehicles following a large storm. 
 
It’s the difference between getting top dollar for your trade in and having to settle for, in some cases, thousands of dollars less. 
 
Dings and dents are a big deal for the automotive resale industry, and those in the market for used cars alike. A vehicle’s appearance inside and out is almost as important as its mechanical condition on the open market. Vehicle resale value can take a huge hit just because of a few dents.
 

Making these improvements before trading in your vehicle can in many cases, fetch you more than just your money back. 
 
You want to keep your vehicle looking its best and you want to protect your investment from a financial standpoint. Paintless Dent Removal, done earlier rather than later, is one of the best ways to protect your investment and preserve vehicle resale value. 
 

It is important to remember that appearance is a large factor in determining trade-in value, so at some point, it may be beneficial to repair car dents before a dealership charges you double on your trade to do it themselves later.

That's right, Anderson Auto Body's tow truck is going to be at the home Raider football games this year, too!  Last year we were happy to let the SOU band use our tow truck for all their half time shows.  We had many customers come in telling us that they had seen our truck during the half time show, and we really enjoyed the exposure it gave us!  When we were approached this fall to see if we would like to be involved this year as well, we didn't hesitate to say yes. 

Here's the link to view the  Raider schedule: http://souraiders.com/schedule.aspx?path=football&

Get out there and support your RAIDERS!!  They are having a really exciting season so far.  And, let us know if you see our truck!!!

A few months back, Angie Christianson of Rogue Valley Community Television interviewed Dave Anderson, the owner of Anderson Auto Body & Paint, asking him questions of his journey to the states.  What was originally going to be one 1/2 hour segment, turned into 2 segments, as Angie realized there was a great story to hear of one mans dedications, dreams, and accomplishments.  Please take a moment to watch these two videos.  If you have had the pleasure of meeting Dave, or even if you've never met him, I am sure you will enjoy the messages therein.
