SPRINGFIELD, NJ – Magic Auto Care held its Grand Opening on Saturday July 8. Santiago Tello and his wife, Ximena, own the business.  He is the Master Technician. 

This is a change in the way they do business. The business had been mobile for eighteen years until the opportunity to refurbish 21 Springfield Avenue became available.

Magic Auto Care specializes in auto detailing, interior repair, windshield repair, airbrush paint and scratch repair. The repair work doesn't include painting. The process is called Paintless Dent Removal, (PDR). A trained technician will massage the damaged sheet metal surface from behind and push it back into shape. The process is done without sanding or repainting. This process should be much less expensive than typical body work.
