Welcome, my name is Steve Hartley, owner/operator at Collision Magicians Inc. I’ll be in charge of helping find and contribute to the content for our blog and newsletter but first let me quickly tell you about our company.

Collision Magicians Inc is a Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) and light collision repair company servicing the Ottawa Valley & Gatineau Hills. We specialize in large complex dents and light collision repairs and we work closely with local body shops to formulate the least intrusive, most cost effective repair solution for their customers.

Our mission is to share & connect our costumers with Collision & Dent repair information so they can make better more informed repair decisions on their vehicle.

One way we’ve done that is by developing the Dent Light, a paintless dent repair tool for the iPad. Besides helping users measure, photograph and repair hail sized dents, the built-in hail matrix and User Guide, shares with the user the procedures and techniques used in the paintless dent repair (PDR) process, including how to take better photo’s of dings and dents as well as better understand the hail and dent estimating process.

Your feedback is appreciated and encouraged.
