BumperDoc creates environmentally responsible business with waterborne paint, paintless dent repair, rapid auto body repair, and plastic bumper repair.
June 09, 2008 // Franchising.com // BumperDoc auto reconditioning centers are benefiting from the increasing concern for the environment by building brand recognition as providers of 'green' auto body repair practices.
The franchise system's environmentally responsible practices include plastic bumper repair, rapid auto body repair, paintless dent removal and the use of a waterborne paint system. The company expects franchisees to benefit from the increasing concern for the environment, as more customers make purchasing decisions based on their environmental impact.
"In today's economy, new business owners are looking for an intelligent concept that is responsive to current trends in society" explains Triston Miller, BumperDoc's founder and C.E.O., "Our primary goal was to develop a business model that would save time and money for customers while giving them the high-quality repairs they desired. Not only did we meet this goal, but we also realized the unexpected benefit of an Earth-friendly business model that is bringing tremendous interest in our franchise offering."
The company has partnered with Sherwin Williams to provide franchisees with a state-of-the-art waterborne paint system. Using water-based paints provides two significant advantages: higher quality repairs and greatly reduced emissions. BumperDoc's marketing team is educating consumers about the use of water-based paints and the environmentally responsible aspects of their business model to position the company as the 'green' choice.
BumperDoc specializes in repairing damaged plastic bumpers, and the company's technicians make every effort to repair, instead of replace, each damaged part. The company is continually researching new techniques and materials, and they have developed advanced plastic repair techniques enabling them to repair damage that is usually replaced by most auto body shops. While this saves time and money, the company is seeing an even greater benefit in the ability to market their green business practices.
BumperDoc's rapid auto body repair method combines paintless dent repair (PDR) with traditional auto body techniques to minimize the time and expense of minor auto body repairs.
Utilizing PDR enables some damaged panels to be repaired that would otherwise require replacement. PDR can also reduce the amount of paint and other materials required for the average repair. Using PDR and striving to repair damaged metal panels also helps the company meet its goal of returning all vehicles to customers in only two or three days.
BumperDoc was founded as a mobile service provider in 2001, and they opened the first reconditioning center in 2004. After experiencing positive customer responses, the company decided to open additional locations through the offering of franchise opportunities.
BumperDoc is offering franchise opportunities nationwide. Please direct all inquires to Shane Sparks at 866-428-7969, or visit www.BumperDocFranchises.com.
