Freedom Of Choice

Categories: Tags:

We all love freedom, it’s our right as a citizen of this Free country in which we live. Isn’t it a wonderful feeling; to know you are free to make your own decisions, go where you please, and do what you want.

Because of the wonderful freedoms we have, we expect the same freedom of choice from our insurer as to who fixes our car. And why wouldn’t we? You expect the quality repair work, and peace of mind that comes with knowing your car has been fixed to a standard that ensures the safety of you and your family everytime you go for a drive.

Many insurers promise this freedom of choice when you agree to their policy, though quite often when we call them they give us the opposite impression. But don’t be fooled it is 100% YOUR CHOICE!

Most insurance companies just require a little insistence on your part. So below are a few steps you can take in order to ensure you have your car repaired by the repairer YOU CHOOSE.

 

1. CALL YOUR CRASH REPAIRER

This may seem a little backwards, but it is a great idea to call the people you’d like to have fixing your car before calling your insurance company. Some of our most loyal customers give us a call before their insurance, just to make sure they know exactly what to do next. One customer has been on the receiving end of some unfortunate collisions in the last 12 months. The first call he made after reporting the accident to the police, was to us. Knowing you have the support of the repairer often helps with making your requests known to your insurer.

 

2. CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY

In order for you to make a claim, you’ll have to let your insurer know. This is often a call people hesitate to make, due to how uncomfortable these conversations can be, especially when you insist on using your chosen repairer and your insurance company tries to push you into going with a repairer of THEIR choice. Remember to be firm, if you know you have a choice, be upfront and say that you have a reputable (preferrably RAA approved) repairer that you’d like to use. If you are direct and remain firm most good insurers will comply happily. With others, they may pressure you into using their chosen repairer, which often is the one that will save them the most money.

 

3. CALL YOUR REPAIRER BACK

At this stage you can call your repairer back with the claim information that has been supplied by you insurance company. The sooner the repairer has this information, the sooner they can put together a quote and deal with the insurance company for you. Giving you complete peace of mind. Call or drop in to any of our centres, and we’ll happily help you get back on the road.

 

REMEMBER

Crash repair is our business, and we have dealt with many varieties of insurer, if you have any questions as far as what you need to tell your insurance company in order to make a claim and use the best repairer for you, please give us a call. We’re happy to serve you, and help you gain the peace of mind that goes with being back in your car safely, quickly, and with a minimum of stress.

What’s New in 2018

Categories:

Happy New Year!

As of today we are once again open and ready to start our most exciting year yet! Over the past few months we have undergone some changes in operation.

What’s new this year?

Dynamic Paint N Panel has undergone some major changes. One thing hasn’t changed: We are still 100% committed to serving you and our community both in the Eastern Suburbs of Adelaide, in the Adelaide Hills, and our regional centres.

As we move into 2018 the exciting new changes we’ve implemented will ensure absolute maximum efficiency in every aspect of getting you and your car on the road at its absolute peak.

So what has changed?

As some of you may have already noticed after many years of operating in Woodside, we have closed our doors and centralised to  Bob North Mechanical – 71 Onkaparinga Valley Road Balhannah. With this move we have been able to divert all work operations to our flagship workshop and showroom in Stepney.

What this means for our valued Hills customers.

Hills customers will still be able to receive the same, speedy, exceptional service and results. With major operations moving to Stepney those of you who have your car inspected and quotes written at Bob North Mechanical in Balhannah will be able to drop their car in and have it towed by one of our very own tow truck drivers at no expense to you. Once the work has been completed we will load up your restored drive and bring it right back to you.

We will come to YOU anywhere in the Hills to obtain the initial quotation and get the process started. Not only do we offer pick up and delivery to our satellite centres in Balhannah and Strathalbyn, but we can even deliver to you home, or office!

Our Towing Service

Our Towing service remains unchanged for any breakdowns, shifting of vehicles, and accident tows.

What you can expect

By consolidating everything in one feature workshop DPP will be able to more closely monitor workmanship, turnover rate (efficiency), as well being able to work more closely with you the customer, meaning you will have your car finished faster, with an even more superior finish than we (or anyone else) has ever been able to offer. You’ll have your car back SOONER, looking BETTER than ever.

2018 will be an exciting year for all of us, and we are excited to hear from you. If you have any questions, give us a call, or drop in.

Summer Lovin’

Categories: Tags:

As an RAA approved repair DPP are proud to display that trusted yellow sign above our workshops. In the interest of keeping you and your car in the best possible shape this silly season, we’ve borrowed a few tips from our friends at RAA (and added a few of our own).

South Australia enjoys beautiful summer weather, but the rising temperatures can be scorching at times and our cars don’t always cope. To prevent a breakdown and avoid being stuck on the side of the road, consider these tips.

Understand the signs

Pull over immediately if you detect a burning smell or see steam or smoke coming from the engine. If you don’t, you run the risk of permanently damaging your engine and it could end up costing you a lot more than an annoying delay on the side of the road.

Remember to check your instruments regularly, and stop immediately if the gauge shows an unusual reading – very high or very low.

Electrical system

The main causes of heat related breakdowns are failures of the cooling and electrical systems. The stress put on the electrical system, especially the battery, can be hard to predict. Luckily, all RAA Road Service patrols carry RAA Batteries, and will deliver and fit them for members at no extra cost by simply phoning 13 11 11.

Cooling system

Look at the hoses and drive belts for cracks, wear and tear.
When the engine is cold, check the level and condition of the coolant.
Externally look for at the radiator core for insects and other blockages and clean them out by hosing down. Don’t attempt to brush the core, as the fragile cooling fins could be damaged.
Don’t ever try to drive in an overheated car as you risk damaging the engine. If you can’t find the problem, let the car completely cool down, check the coolant level and either have the car checked at the nearest service station, or call for RAA Road Service on 13 11 11.

Air Conditioning

Make sure your air-conditioning is working efficiently. If in doubt, have it checked by a qualified professional. The most important benefit of effective air-conditioning is that it reduces driver fatigue, keeping the driver alert, refreshed and more comfortable.

Storing Your Car

With the sun beating down for 14 hours non-stop it can take a serious toll on your car’s paint work. Though it might not show immediately, after hours of baking in the sun your car’s paint takes some serious damage. Even after just a week of sitting in the sun the protective top layer starts to weaken, leaving the coloured layer exposed to the harsh UV rays of the South Australian sun. Over time this will lead to not only paint fade, but will leave the paint work exposed to damage from other elements, and come winter can lead to rust. While there isn’t a whole lot you can do except park in the shade, if you do have to store your car in the sun for any length of time, try a car cover. Available at cheap as chips and most good auto stores.

Daylight Savings and Temporary Blindness

Categories:

Temporary Blindness

On Sunday we wound our clocks and watches forward an hour. Why? To enjoy the glorious South Australian sunshine for an extra hour every afternoon. Generally for most of us these longer afternoons mean the increase of pleasant social evening gatherings, the dusting off of the BBQ, and for some of us an afterwork dip in the pool or at the beach. While daylight savings has so much to offer as far as the longer days go, it can also pose quite the hazard for road users. With the improving weather more and more people try to make the most of it. And these people aren’t always the ones behind the wheel.

Summer brings with it more cyclists, runners, dogwalkers, and horse riders, than the cooler months and as such the distractions increase. It’s hard enough to deal with the added distractions and obstacles of the longer days, but with the added glare of driving in the twilight these can often become hazardous.

While we can’t completely eliminate the glare of the setting sun completely, there are a few easy steps we can take to reduce it, and reduce the likelihood of ending up in an accident.

There are obvious things you can do, such as wear sunglasses, and use your window shade, but there are some other super simple steps you can take to ensure you have clear and full vision while driving.

 

Adjust Your Mirror

A lot of us work in the city, and drive home each day heading East or West. While those of us heading West to go home in the evenings have to stare directly into the setting sun when driving we at least have the advantage of being aware of the huge ball of gas millions of miles away that is trying to blind us and as such wear sunglasses and use our window shade, however those heading away from the setting sun face a different problem; the rear vision mirror. While it’s not common for the sun to be reflected directly into a driver’s eyes for the duration of the trip, it is very common for us to “catch” the sun’s rays in the mirror and have a our attention drawn away from the road for a few seconds. To avoid this happening simply use the little switch on the bottom of the mirror used to avoid headlight glare at night. This will ensure the sun doesn’t blind you unexpectedly while driving home.

 

Change Your Wiper Blades

When we suggest this one to customers that have complained about severe windscreen glare in the past they often raise an eyebrow and ask why. Now obviously with the weather improving for the most part wiper blades are usually low on the priority list, however it was this time last year that those freak hail storms saw us busier than we’ve been in the last decade. While those sorts of storms aren’t likely the condition of your blades can still play a major role in providing clear vision in sunny weather. In the warmer months we often have a lot of dust and dirt on our windows, and without thinking we squirt the windscreen and the wipers wash the dirty water away. With fresh blades (Anything up to 6 months) this simple solution works perfectly and we don’t think twice about it, but for blades older than 6 months we can be contributing to a potential hazard. When we have dirty windscreens, old blades, of not enough water to spray the windscreen with the movement of the blades rubs dirt across the glass and scratches it. In most cases drivers are completely unaware of the damage they are doing until it’s far too late and they have to deal with being nearly completely blind, driving towards the sun at 100km/h. The simple solution: Change your blades and top up your water.

Spring Cleaning

Categories:

Goodbye Winter, Hello Sunshine!

Spring is finally here, and as many of us prepare our homes for the changing seasons now is a great time to roll up your sleeves and give your car the Spring Cleaning it deserves. We’ve put together the some of most important spring cleaning tips for the inside of your vehicle. For a complete guide on the best way to clean the outside of your car check out a step by step guide here

 

Have The Right Tools

When detailing your car it is important to be using the right tools and equipment, especially when it comes to cleaning leather. The good news is a lot of these materials you probably already have. As long as you have access to; a vacuum cleaner, window cleaner (or vinegar/water solution), paper towel or newspaper, and a toothbrush (new or used) to clear the dust out of those air conditioner vents.

 

Clean Every Nook and Cranny First

By using a synthetic duster between the seats, and a toothbrush in the air vents you’ll be able to move all that dust, dirt, and grime that has found its way into the most inconvenient places to clean (or drop coins). Doing this first means that any excess dust will be simply vacuumed up rather than dropped on your freshly clean upholstery.

 

Vacuum, Brush, Vacuum again

Often after a long, or particularly dirty winter, mud, gravel, dead leaves, and even pet hair can be stuck deep into the cloth surfaces inside your car, especially the floors. After you’ve vacuum the bulk of the dirt from the surface use a stiff bristled brush to lift up all those nasty, allergy inducing particles before vacuuming once more to get rid of them for good.

 

Use The Right Stuff

If your car has leather interior or upholstery it really pays to use a reputable, specialised leather cleaner, and if necessary test on an inconspicuous area before applying to the rest of the surface. While you can get away with using vinegar and water on the windows for a streak free clean, using anything other than dedicated leather cleaner can permanently damage your car’s interior.

Braking on Wet Roads

Categories:

We love seeing you guys! We do.. We love to help you get your car back on the road as quickly and painlessly as possible. However, as much as we love seeing our loyal customers, it’s often because you’ve been in an accident. And this time of year it’s often due to inattention on our roads.

Distractions are all around us, in fact if you haven’t checked out our 7 deadly distractions click the link at the bottom of the page to find out the most common causes of minor accidents. With the recent stormy weather we’ve been having it’s never been more important to take a little extra care when on our roads.

In wet weather how fast you are travelling and, just as importantly, how closely you follow the car in front of you can make a big difference on how quickly you can come to a complete stop. Of course the faster you go, the longer the stopping distance. Now while this is common sense, what many people fail to realise is that your braking distance increases exponentially. Have a look at the table below and you’ll see how much a bit of rain really makes a difference.

Most roads we travel on around and through Adelaide are marked 50 km/h, meaning (according to the table below) we’d need to allow an extra one to two car lengths to stop before we ran into the car in front of us. For those of us that travel on country roads at 80 km/h we’d need twice that distance. And for those of us who travel up and down the freeway every day it would take us an extra 30 metres to come to a complete stop, quite scary really.

 

Total Stopping Distance on a Dry Road

Total Stopping Distance on a Wet Road

By allowing extra space between you and the car in front of you you’ll significantly reduce the likelihood of running into another car. This is especially important considering that in the vast majority of rear end accidents the rear car driver is the one at fault. This of course means they are also liable for the cost of repair.

As far as stationary objects and unexpected obstacles in the road, such as fallen branches, debris, or even stray pets, or pedestrians, unfortunately there is only one solution to avoid unnecessary accidents SLOWING DOWN.

Now, while slowing down is often frustrating, by dropping our speed by just 5 km/h on wet roads in a 50 zone, our braking distance is the same as travelling at 50 km/h on a dry road.

 

Your Friends,

Stay Safe this Winter

A few easy steps to safer travel this wet season.

 

The long days have left us and daylight savings are over. With the days getting shorter and more and more of us driving home in the dark, the likelihood of being in a bingle (even a minor one) increases significantly. We’ve put together a few tips to help keep you and your car as safe as possible as we approach the rainy season. Check them out and stay safe…

 

Automatic lights

So many cars built in the last 10 to 15 years include a wonderful little feature which allows the driver to simply set the lights to the ‘automatic’ option. As you may already be aware this allows simple peace of mind as you drive through changing light by automatically turning your headlights on. This, of course, means you won’t have to worry about seeing clearly, or being seen as the day draws to a close.

 

Dim your dash

Another handy feature that nearly all vehicles on the road have these days has the ability to dim your dashboard lights via a small dimmer switch. This is most commonly, though not always, positioned near the headlight control switch (pictured below). Play around with it to find what suits you best. Quite often it’ll be set to the brightest setting which is excellent to keep you awake as it’s so bright, but can cause distraction and sometimes glare against the windscreen.

 

Motorcycle filtering

Due to recent changes in laws regarding lane filtering of motorcycle laws (check out the new laws here) you may see motorcyclists creeping up or ‘filtering’ passed you at traffic lights. Now, more than ever, it will be necessary to be aware of motorcyclist and bicyclists as you go through traffic lights, especially while turning.

 

Clean your windows

Clean, fog free windows allow safe travel in low light, changing light, and under artificial light. Greasy, foggy windows do not. If you’re not sure if your windscreen fogs up easily you’ll soon find out. While it is never particularly safe to drive with a foggy windscreen it becomes especially dangerous when facing an oncoming car, not only because another moving object of similar size and speed is approaching, but also because of the extra glare created by their headlights.

 

Although this is not a definitive guide by any means, these few tips should go a long way to helping you avoid any unfortunate accidents especially as we approach the Easter break.

Stay safe out there

As usual, if you need some help with some minor (or major, we do it all) dent or scratch removal, just give us a call, or come and drop by. All quotes are FREE and we’d love to see how we can help. So why wait, show your car some love, take it for a spin and drop in for a visit.

Night Vision

Categories:

Night Vision – Something that affects us all who use the roads is visibility. So when the weather gets a little wild, and the sun seems to go missing, we start to spend more and more time on the road with our headlights on. This means the condition of our headlights can play a huge role in our safety on the road.

Think about what your headlights look like now, and how they compare to the picture below. If they are closer to the ‘after’ picture, you have nothing to worry about. If your headlights look more like the ‘before’ picture, you may be in a little trouble.

Having headlights like the ‘before’ picture you see below can mean up to 30% reduction in clear vision when travelling in the dark. This is terrible news, especially if you commute along country roads, or anywhere that street lights aren’t there to help. It’s inconvenient and downright dangerous.

Why drive around with reduced vision and increased risk when driving at night, why not come and have them professionally cleaned by one of our team. You’ll notice the difference immediately.

Be Safe This Easter

Categories:

image13.085833

 

The weather is getting cooler, and the leaves are turning beautiful hues of reds, oranges, and browns, it makes is an absolutely perfect time to get behind the wheel and enjoy all the beauty South Australia has to offer. Here are a couple of helpful tips to keep in mind in order to stay safe on the roads this Autumn.

Although the rain hasn’t quite hit us yet, when it does rain the road conditions will change, and fast. All of those beautiful leaves we see fall start to build up on roads, paths and driveways, and while they make a lovely crunching sounds when they are crisp and dry as soon as we have any sort of rain they become incredibly slippery, reducing traction and control not only while slowing down and braking, but also when accelerating, making it harder to remove yourself from harm’s way.

With Autumn we also say goodbye to daylight savings, resulting in shorter days and the increased likelihood of driving home in the dark. Although most of us are quite comfortable with driving in the dark we still have to deal with rush hour in the early evening hours, not to mention that early Autumn is still an incredibly popular time for cyclists to be using the roads to commute to and from work.

While daylight savings doesn’t end until April 2nd this year, now is a great time to change your wiper blades, check tyre pressure and ensure your car is ready for the change of weather before it arrives.

As usual, if you need some help with some minor (or major, we do it all) dent or scratch removal, just give us a call, or come and drop by. All quotes are FREE and we’d love to see how we can help. So why wait, show your car some love, take it for a spin and drop in for a visit.
