24 hour dent repair now available for Knoxvillians

LANCASTER, Pa -- Good news has arrived for individuals who experienced damage from recent storms in Knoxville. Dent Concepts has opened two locations in our area, one in Alcoa and another in West Knoxville.

The company has hired 20 local workers to assist in the repair of an estimated 18,000 vehicles damaged by golf-ball size hail and flying debris from the terrible storms a few weeks ago.

Dent Concepts swung into action to offer easy-access locations to provide its unique and expedient "paintless" dent repair service. The repair technique protects the value of a car by eliminating costly paint jobs while it carefully removes dents caused by hail and other damage. Dent Concepts will process a Tennessean's insurance claims, remove the dents and return the vehicle to its owner within 24 hours in most cases.

"The citizens of Knoxville and the surrounding towns have been coping with crisis for weeks. They have dealt with damage to their homes, a lack of electricity and getting around is made difficult with damaged vehicles. It is our goal to ease the burden on local families by providing easy access to the skilled technicians they need to get back on the road," said Derek Lombardi of Dent Concepts.

Nate Murphy, a 26-year old Tennessean originally from Harriman, was recently hired to help lead efforts on the ground for Dent Concepts. "We are fortunate to have added jobs for workers here on the spot. In the past weeks, Dent Concepts has hired 20 skilled local workers, moving many from unemployment to a job assisting their community, and we plan to hire more in the coming weeks.

"I too was looking for work after attending the Virginia Military Institute and leaving medical school for personal reasons. Although I plan to return to medical school in the spring, Dent Concepts afforded me the opportunity to manage operations here on the ground. Together with our techs, we are working long hours on the cars of neighbors and friends and will be doing so as partners for the foreseeable future. It's wonderful to have a chance to alleviate some of the pain for the people of this community."

While a typical trip to the body shop for a dent repair may involve two weeks and a rental car, Dent Concepts' paint-free dent repair method allows the company to put storm victims back in their car in 24 hours, or 48 hours for more heavily damaged vehicles. The technique, in which techs hand-massage each car individually, not only protects the integrity of the vehicle and its original paint job, but also is an efficient process. Additionally, Dent Concepts' is well known and respected by the insurance companies which allows them to provide damage verification for customers and a quick turnaround on claims.

Tennessee residents may call 865-200-9140 or drive directly into the following two, conveniently located repair centers to make their claim at 2955 Northpark Blvd. in Alcoa or in Knoxville at 9629 Parkside Dr.
