About Independent Dent Company
As a young man, I entered the job world at Unocal 76. It was the only gas station in the city in which I lived that still pumped gas for women and elderly. I believe we should continue this today. While there, I not only pumped gas but I performed small repairs on vehicles. I replaced shocks, changed tires and oil and followed through with part replacement suggested by the head mechanic after he made a diagnoses.
During this time, my brother had taken a career in paintless dent removal. From time to time he would come into town and visit and during these visits I would request his services on a few of my personal vehicles. I would watch him work and acquired a fascination with the process. Possibly due to the fact he was tired of fixing my dents for no charge, he began to show me how to perform this process of fixing my dents without painting.
This started my thought process. I knew my gas station job wasn't where I saw myself for long and so I expressed an interest in seeking employment in the industry. I put in resumes to different corporate locations and two weeks later received an interview. I received extensive training in St Louis and finished second in my class. I was sent back to California to start my career for the largest, and at the time, the best paintless dent removal company internationally. After a year of being placed in a dealer route, to auto auction, to rental accounts, I was given the opportunity to develop my own dealer route. Approximately five years later I had graduated to "tech council" for the southern California dealer technicians while still running my dealer route. A year or so later I became a field tech trainer where I helped to hone the skills of new technicians just coming out of dent school. Although my route was growing after 10 years with the company I started to feel propelled to push further and with my passion for the art of paintless dent removal along with the experience I had gained, realized my dream of owning my own business.
