John Caraway is a perfectionist. He's also a certified auto-body technician. At Dent Wrx, located inside of Phillipe's Auto Body, John is able to combine these two traits by restoring dented surfaces back to an overall smooth finish on vehicle exteriors. Caraway and his team of technicians use specially designed tools to massage away dents caused by hail or overzealous rice throwers who got kicked out of the wedding they were attending. Paintless dent repair is also available for customers. Services restore surfaces without the use of putty or additional paint, and they won't damage the finish of existing paint. As an added bonus, Dent Wrx sometimes provides loaner cars so that patrons don't have to ride the family dog to work.

For 15 years, IntelliDent's paintless dent repair has smoothed away dings without damaging original factory finishes. The specialty technique relies on massaging exteriors from the inside, which activates the metal's memory and restores it to its initial shape. The eco-friendly process can remove dings between the size of a dime and a half dollar that were caused by hail, minor collisions, and forays into car acupuncture.

The shop's team of skilled technicians can also tend to vehicles with more conventional repairs, eradicating all sorts of primarily cosmetic woes. As they work, the staff consults closely with insurance companies to make sure their repairs are cost-effective.
