It’s One of the Miracles of Modern Auto Body Repair.

That might be the answer, but what is the question?  That would be “what is paintless dent repair”.  Dents are the result of minor automotive collisions.  It doesn’t take much impact for a mark to be left behind after a bump or accident.  A minor dent can be a major inconvenience for drivers since the repairs needed to remove the dent may be complicated and extensive.

What exactly is paintless dent removal?  It is when your vehicle experiences a dent - and instead of removing the damaged piece, installing a new stock piece and applying a fresh coat of paint to match your car’s color, our trained collision repair technicians attack the dent by using paintless dent removal.

It truly is something that our founding father, Don, could not have imagined when he opened our shop back in 1962.  A lot has evolved in those nearly six decades.  What is important to remember is that if you have any need for state-of-the-art auto body repair, please call us at The Don Embry Body Shop at (502) 935-1373 or stop by 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.

When is it Time for Suspension Repair?

Most drivers in the Louisville area tend to judge their vehicle's suspension system solely on its ability to provide a smooth and comfortable ride.  After even a minor accident shocks and struts may need to be repaired help you to come to a safe stop quickly, and will also assist in making sure that you have maximum control over your vehicle as you go around tight corners.

Here are some signs that suspension repair is needed –

1.  Uneven wear on the tires.
2.  Drifting.
3.  Leakage in your car’s shocks.
4.  A bumpy ride.

These and other signs are a nearly sure indication that suspension work must be done on your vehicle to keep it safely on the road!  The right choice to do that work in the Louisville area are the trained auto body and suspension repair professionals at The Don Embry Body Shop right there at 8272 Dixie Highway.  Call for an appointment at (502) 935-1373.

We’ve Come a Long Way.

Back in a day (try 1962 when we were founded) auto body repair shops fixed cars with a hammer and a torch.  Not any longer, my friends!  Collision repair technology is complex in 2020 with new ideas being incorporated all the time.  As a state of the art auto body shop in Louisville we must stay on top of them.

Here are a few of the new innovations –

1.  Aluminum welding.  In the old days it was only steel.
2.  Universal jigs and laser measuring
3.  Cold straightening…put aside the blowtorch
4.  Assist system repairs.  This includes sensors, cameras, etc.
5.  MIG brazing.  We won’t even try to explain that one.

Even though we have been proud to serve the Louisville area for well over a half-century we know that our equipment and knowledge has to be constantly updated.  At The Don Embry Body Shop we keep growing, learning, and equipping.  Visit The Don Embry Body Shop at 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville or call (502) 935-1373.

Body Shops and Insurance Companies Working in Sync.

What???  Dogs and cats living together!  This doesn’t sound normal on the surface, does it? 
After a car crash, several things happen quickly — the police arrive, information is exchanged, and any medical problems are handled.  Then you need to work with an insurance company to get your car fixed.

The insurance company will likely recommend body shops, but you can go to the auto body shop of your choice.  Naturally, we hope that you choose a company like ours that has been repairing vehicles in the Louisville area for well over five decades.  It is YOUR choice…not the insurance provider.

If you don’t already know, we are that auto body repair shop located at 8272 Dixie Highway serving the greater Louisville area since 1962.  We are The Don Embry Body Shop and have been working with dozens and dozens of insurance companies over the decades.  If you need us, just call (502) 935-1373.

Three Steps of Great Auto Body Restoration.

A car collision leaves your car at least dented, scratched, and it probably could use some auto body repair.  When you arrive at our auto body shop in Louisville, our technicians will carefully evaluate the exact locations and cause of your body damage.  They will need to determine which repair method will be most effective for resurrecting your vehicle.

Here are the three most common types of body repair –

1.  Paintless dent repair which has become a revelation in our business.
2.  Auto body filler…this is used for more serious problems.
3.  Bumper replacement when your front or back bumpers get disfigured.

Oh yes, need we mention a big part of this equation.  That is the intense pride we have repairing vehicles throughout Louisville for nearly six decades!  That’s right, The Don Embry Body Shop has been around since the early 60’s and during that time folks in and around Louisville have found us at 8272 Dixie Highway.  We plan on being there for many decades to come.
