Why Sioux Falls Dent Repair Is Better Than Tesla Certified Repair Services
Tesla is an American electric vehicle manufacturer that produces arguably the best electric vehicles on Earth. The company itself is an anomaly of sorts because apart from the Ford Motor Company, Tesla is the only American car manufacturer in history that has never gone bankrupt.
They have garnered immense respect and success in the automotive industry, and Tesla’s Model 3 has recently become the world’s best-selling plug-in electric vehicle.
Much of their success can be attributed to the fact that they are the reason behind the modern mainstream acceptance and enthusiasm of electric vehicles in the West. If you own a Tesla, you should take good care of it and avoid denting it in parking lots or on the roads in South Dakota.
Avoid Dents and Dings on Your Tesla
It’s best to park with ample space to avoid dents and dings, especially if your Tesla model has the falcon-wing doors that open up. Avoid placing things on top of your Tesla and try to park it indoors as much as possible, but make sure there’s enough space on the sides and top.
Whereas there isn’t much you can do on the roads to avoid dents apart from being extra mindful of your surroundings. However, if you dent your Tesla in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, we recommend paintless dent repair (PDR) from Sioux Falls Dent Repair instead of a Tesla Certified Repair Service.
Why Sioux Falls Is Better Than Tesla Certified Repair Services
There are many reasons why Sioux Falls Dent Repair is a better option than certified repair services. Here are just a few of the main ones.
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
Sioux Falls offers you immaculate PDR from PDR-certified technicians, a faster, cost-effective restoration solution to dents and dings. It is better than any conventional dent repair, which is what you get at certified services.
Unlike conventional dent repair, PDR does not require any scraping, filling, or repainting of body parts, which means your Tesla retains its original factory paintwork and, therefore, its resale value.
Experienced Certified Technicians
Sioux Falls Dent Repair offers highly trained and skilled PDR-certified technicians who have years of experience removing dents and dings from Tesla vehicles. Your Tesla could not be in better hands, and you can expect the best dent repair results from these veteran professionals.
Pocket-Friendly Dent Repairs
When you go to a Tesla-certified repair service in Sioux Falls or anywhere in South Dakota, you can expect it to leave a huge dent on your bank account. This is not the case when you get PDR from Sioux Falls Dent Repair.
PDR does not involve tampering with any undamaged side panels, which is often the case with conventional dent repairs. Moreover, you don’t have to pay for expensive fillers or Tesla paint. These factors mean that PDR from Sioux Falls Dent Repair costs far less than you would pay at a Tesla-certified repair service for similar repairs.
These are just a few reasons why Sioux Falls is better than Tesla-certified repair services in South Dakota, and there are many more, which we can discuss another time. For now, if you want immaculate PDR from experienced certified technicians at a reasonable cost, you need to visit Sioux Falls Dent Repair.

Types of Electric Vehicles
Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV)
These vehicles have a smaller style internal combustion engine and an electrical generator. Unlike a hybrid where the small engine works to move the vehicle, on this type of vehicle the small internal combustion engine is used just to provide electricity to the generator and is NOT used to move the vehicle in any way.
This is the most common of electric vehicle. They have not only a gas engine but also an electric motor. These are the types of vehicles that “shut off” when stopped then quickly start back up when taking off, these style hybrids are called “micro-hybrids.”
These types of vehicles get their batteries charged from an external source like an outlet at your home or work.
They are similar to conventional hybrids in that they have both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. What sets these vehicles apart from a hybrid though is unlike conventional hybrids, PHEVs can substitute electricity from the grid for gasoline. This allows them to not need any gasoline to run.
It’s no doubt today that we are seeing more electric and hybrid vehicles on the road today and they are in need of dent repairs. These vehicles will continue to gain popularity and will continue to become more efficient. They will continue to extend your driving experience while using less fuel and some being full electric requiring NO fuel!
When doing paintless dent repair on these types of vehicles, there are more safety precautions that need to be taken. These vehicles have High Voltage DC Power systems running through them which can be of great danger if not handled safely.
How Do You Work With These Systems?
When working on these electric vehicles you need to know where the high voltage systems are located. We have access to programs that layout these systems and locations on vehicles. Something as simple as a dent in a fender, in the past, was as simple as gaining access through the fender liner or in through the engine bay.
Now there can be High Voltage cables running through even a fender and also in the engine bay. These components need to be identified and at times these high voltage systems need to be disabled to perform repairs.
We here at Sioux Falls Dent Repair have taken advanced courses on these types of systems AND have the proper safety equipment to properly work on and power down these High Voltage Systems.
We are the ONLY shop in the state of South Dakota that is certified by the IMI for Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Level 2 Power Down Procedures.
Dealing with these systems is about safety. The safety of the technician, the safety for you, the vehicle owner and your family. Also for the safety of the vehicle itself and any anyone else that comes into contact with the vehicle.
These High Voltage systems can cause serious injury or death if not handled with the proper precautions. Don’t trust just anyone to repair your vehicle, be sure to make sure anyone that works on your vehicle equipped with any of these systems has the proper knowledge to do so.
If you have any questions on any of these systems or have damage in your own vehicle give us a call today!
