7 Things That Can Ruin Your Car’s Paint Job

7 Things That Can Ruin Your Car’s Paint Job

There’s nothing like that new shine of a paint job on your car. Whether fresh from the dealer’s lot or the autobody shop, a fresh coat of paint signals pride in your vehicle — a pride you’d like to keep for as long as possible. However, there are many environmental effects that are working against your car:
1. Bugs and Bird Droppings: While there’s really nothing you can do about bugs smashing onto your hood or bird droppings down the side of the door, there is something you can do after the fact that will save your paint job. Rather than let the evidence sit there, hoping a good rain storm will rinse them away, you need to wash them off as soon as you notice them. That’s because bugs and bird droppings tend to be very acidic and will eat away at the paint if left there to fester. Be gentle and don’t scrub with abrasives.

2. Road Debris: This is a big offender — yet another one you can’t prevent from happening. Just driving on the street can kick up small pebbles, dirt and salt (in wintry regions) that can pit your paint job. Clean your vehicle often but again, don’t scrub. Those little bits of dirt will cause unsightly scratches. Salt placed on roadways to keep snowy and icy conditions at bay can eat away at your paint and cause corrosion.

3. Construction Debris: You always wince as you head through a construction zone, hearing all that dust, gravel and asphalt peppering the underside of your car and bumper. Avoid these construction zones if you can, and certainly don’t park near any of them. The dust kicked up by these areas can settle on your car and dull its sheen. Take your car to the car wash if you inadvertently drive through a construction zone.

4. Gas: Most of us are in a hurry when filling up with gas. However, those drops and spills down the side of your car as you take out the hose can be a killer for your vehicle’s paint job. Once it has set in, a gas stain is very hard to get off later. If you spill, use a microfiber cloth to wipe it away immediately.

5. Sprinklers: Parking near a sprinkler may sound harmless (hey, whose car couldn’t use a natural bath once in a while?). However, the water spots left by those sprinklers have minerals in them that, when dried by the sun, can leave random spots that are hard to get off.

6. Writing: Your kids may think it’s funny to write “Wash me” on your car, but this can cause damage to your paint job. That’s because dirt is like sandpaper and has the same effect on your shiny new paint job.

7. Coffee: We’ve all driven off with a cup of coffee on the roof at least once in our lives. However, those coffee stains can be a detriment to your paint job. Since coffee (and other beverages such as soda) is acidic, this can hurt your car’s finish so wash it off as soon as you can, advises DriverSide. If there’s sugar in your coffee, that’s even worse because it leaves a sticky residue.

Importance of Developing Lasting Relationships with Customers

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Mays Family DallasPeople want to do business with other people — not companies. That’s why it’s so important for any company to build and cultivate relationships with their customers from day one. Here at Hance’s Uptown Collision Center, we know we wouldn’t be where we are today without our customers. You’ll always find our technicians helpful and customer service reps friendly. We want to get to know you and your car so that you feel good about giving us your business whenever you need to. You’ll know the work will get done quickly, and it will get done right.

We thought we would talk about the importance of nurturing lasting relationships with our customers as part of this week’s blog post.


There’s no such thing as over-communicating, says Forbes, which is why this is a key part of keeping clients informed through regular communications and updates. Through appointment reminders, specials and deals, and issues you need to know about, we make it a top priority to keep you informed. You have things to do, you’re busy and you want to get back on the road. We don’t keep you in the dark.

Being a Helpful Resource

Adding value to a customer’s experience is key. Providing value, convenience and information sharing draws customers in and helps them trust you. The key to the above heading is “helpful” — giving customers irrelevant information that poses no benefit to them is just a waste of time. Bothering you with information you don’t need just isn’t our style.


Crooked auto body repair shops have become somewhat of an old cliche. The whole reason people bring their cars to a shop is because they don’t know how to fix them on their own. Many body shops know that and capitalize on it — especially when they see very young or very old people coming. Honesty is a big part of what we’re about here at Hance’s Uptown Collision Center. We believe it’s the responsibility of a company to be forthright in their dealings with customers in order to foster trust. Anyone can take a customer for a ride, overcharge them for sub-par service and low-quality parts. But they won’t get too far operating like that because word of mouth is a huge swaying factor in where people bring their cars for auto body repair service.

Meeting Deadlines

Just like in the corporate world, meeting deadlines is critical in adding value to your work. Being without a car is a big inconvenience for customers, and we recognize that. You need your vehicle to bring the kids to school, get to work, hit the market — just living life. Barring an unforeseen circumstance, when we give you a turn-around time, we follow through. Your word is your bond, points out Forbes, so by committing to a deadline, you reassure the client that your service will be done in time. Relieve your customers of worry, and they will come back again and again to schedule estimate.
