“So many dents, so little time!”
-Tino De La Cruz
Experience You Can Trust
We always hear the saying, “Do what you love to do and never work a day in your life.” This certainly applies to Tino De La Cruz, owner of Dents B’ Gone! He has turned his hobby and passion into a full time business.
Tino, a U.C. Berkeley graduate, always dreamed of running a business related to cars. As he approached the age of 40, He decided to follow his dream. Thus, Dents B’ Gone! was created.
Tino’s business philosophy is simple: exceed the customer’s expectations! He does this by offering exceptional workmanship and superior customer service for a great price. However, what really sets his work apart from the competition is that he truly treats every car as if it were his own (Tino owned a pristine 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster). “I would not do anything to a customer’s car that I would not do to my Speedster,” says Tino.
Trained and Certified
In order to perfect his trade skills, Tino attended Cypress College (Advanced Detailing & Reconditioning Certification) and Superior Auto Institute (Paintless Dent Repair Certification). His true skill level was developed through countless hours of practice and experience. Tino says, “It took me one year before I felt I was ready to remove dents for a living, but it took me three years before I truly mastered the craft.”
Tino’s goal is not to simply remove dents from customer’s vehicles. Rather Tino wants every customer to be so pleased with his work that the customer in essence becomes a salesperson telling their friends and family members about Dents B’ Gone! Virtually all of Tino’s retail work comes from referrals and repeat customers. Thus, in 2003 Dents B’ Gone! was created.
DON’T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT…
“The day I bought my fully restored Camaro I got a door ding the size of a golf ball on the rear quarter panel. Tino removed the dent with absolutely no damage to my paint. He fully restored the value of my car.”
