More than just Auto Body Repair.

When you must take your vehicle (or have it towed) into an auto body shop in the Louisville area you expect quality work on the outside of your car.  What you may not expect is a professional team that is able to fix your ride inside and out.  Great auto body repair extends to other parts of your vehicle that may need repair as well.

Things like the power windows, the frame, the suspension, keyless entry, and door hinges may also need to be repaired or replaced.  Sometimes expert steel or aluminum welding is needed to restore your car, SUV, or pick-up to its original road-worthiness.  Anything less than that is simply unacceptable!

That is why Louisville area residents have chosen Don Embry Body Shop since the early 1960’s.  That is three generations of drivers in and around our community restoring cars to like-new condition.  When you need the best auto body repair in the Louisville area insist on Don Embry Body Shop.  Call them at (502) 935-1373 or stop by the shop at 8272 Dixie Highway.

Paintless Dent Removal.

It almost sounds unlikely.  It would seem that when the surface of your vehicle is dented that you would need painting as well.  That is not necessarily the case!  The truth is, it doesn’t take much impact for a mark to be left behind after a bump or accident.  Fortunately, modern technicians have perfected the art of dent removal.

So, what exactly is paintless dent removal?  Instead of removing the damaged piece, installing a new stock piece, and applying a fresh coat of paint to match your car’s color, trained collision repair technicians attack the dent by using paintless dent removal.  That’s good stuff!  They approach the damaged area from behind.

There is no auto body shop in the Louisville area more skilled at the art of paintless dent removal than the professional technicians at Don Embry Body Shop.  As the years have evolved since their inception in 1962 the Don Embry Body Shop has evolved with the times.  For the best in auto body repair in the Louisville area call for an appointment at the shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway.  That number is (502) 935-1373.

Don’t Suspend Belief.

This has to do with your vehicle’s suspension.  After what may seem like a minor fender-bender your car’s suspension could be adversely affected.  A car that is out-of-line can cause a myriad of problems.  You need to know when that sometimes imperceptible suspension problem is present and have it corrected.

Here are some signs that your vehicle’s suspension is failing –

1.  Your car pulls to one side.
2.  You feel every bump with more intensity.
3.  One corner is lower than another.
4.  You have difficulty controlling the steering.

Just like a problem physically with your own body the situation may need to be treated right away.  Suspension repairs can be very costly, and you need a body shop with decades of experience and all of the up-to-date materials to treat it completely and economically the first time.  The answer in Louisville and the surrounding area is the Don Embry Body Shop.  Stop that shake, rattle, and roll by calling (502) 935-1373 today.

What is Aluminum Welding?

It is a very important part of the auto body repair process in some cases.  If your auto body shop is not schooled in the art, then you had better find one that is.  Many times, a local shop will send you elsewhere for aluminum welding.  What is the point in that when you can get all of your repairs done under one roof?

The fact is, aluminum alloy is the most difficult alloy to weld.  Is it any wonder that most auto body repair shops simply don’t want to mess with it?  The first step is to clean the aluminum oxide from the surface.  Experience in this arena is an absolute must.  So, if it happens to be an integral part of the repair process ask if they can do it in-house.

One of the premier aluminum welders in the Louisville area is the Don Embry Body Shop.  Of course, not every repair job requires aluminum welding, but if you own a Lincoln Navigator, Ford Expedition, or Ford F150 you will be glad you found us.  We have been one of Louisville’s top auto body shop for over half a century.  Call us at (502) 935-1373.
