A Chat with Scratch Kings
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
As a mobile shop we come to you. We offer a service that is 1/4 the cost of local body shops. We offer a full-vehicle paint restoration versus a per-panel service. We use Standox Paint. We color match the paint to the factory color of the vehicle on-site. Vehicles are usually done within one hour.
What facilities or services do you provide for customers while they wait?
We come to the customers’ home or work. No need to wait in a waiting room. We do the service wherever it is convenient for you. We have worked in a Starbucks parking lot while our customer had a coffee.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Offering a mobile body shop opens up the door for my clientele in more areas without limiting us to only a city or town. We have created new products to speed up the painting and curing process.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new people and seeing peoples’ eyes when the work is done. Them being excited that their car looks new again!
Scratch Kings first brought their quick-fix technology to the United States nine years ago. Since then, the technicians have repaired hundreds of paint scratches, scuffed bumpers, clouded headlights, and minor forms of body damage, using environmentally friendly techniques when possible. They perform these restorations quickly—usually in a matter of a few hours—and can even travel to meet owners as they deftly remove dents in driveways and parking lots. Not everything they do is minor; they also perform full-body, interior and exterior detailing, combining lots of little tasks to restore a well-used car to its best-looking condition.
