Today’s vehicle designers face some competing demands; they need to reduce fuel consumption and polluting emissions, but still recognize that consumers love sport utility and other large vehicles. One solution is obvious, but challenging; find a way to reduce the weight, and thus the fuel consumption of vehicles without sacrificing size.
As aluminum is increasingly being used on vehicles on the road today, proper training is becoming even more important to have vehicles repaired properly after an accident. Vehicle owners should select a collision repair facility that has the current technical training to understand how to work with the lighter weight materials and changing vehicle design.
Budds’ Collision is an authorized repair centre for all of our Budds’ family dealership vehicles and several major insurance companies. We are experts in collision repair knowledge and technology including: analyzing the damage, structural repair process, corrosion protection, steel and aluminum welding, matching your vehicle’s paint finish, and checking safety features such as airbag deployment, seatbelts and anti-lock braking systems.
In searching for a paint that meets the demands of the Budds’ family and our customers, Budds’ Collision chose PPG. "We switched to PPG back in 2013 and have never looked back. With the continued development of more complex colours by OEM's, PPG has proven to be a valuable partner. PPG has continued to provide support so we can deliver the level of quality our clients have come to know and expect - along with a lifetime guarantee on all repairs. " - J.R. Martino, General Manager/Vice President
