A few of our most common auto body shop services include but are not limited to:
Studies show that about 50 percent of vehicles suffer some kind of frame damage in a car collision. Frame damage can occur easily, even in common situations involving minor fender benders. Often, frame damage is difficult to see and can go unnoticed by insurance adjusters. The unfortunate truth is that even minor frame damage can put you, your family, your friends, and your car at risk when driving. When it goes unnoticed, it can often spell disaster for everyday drivers who might think their car is fine to drive.
When your car's frame is bent, your alignment is usually off, too, causing you to swerve and veer while driving. At best, this scenario results in unnecessary wear on your tires and, at worst, results in a car wreck. The bottom line? You need to get your car's frame inspected by a team of professional collision repair experts, even if you've only been involved in a minor accident.
At Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration, we take a comprehensive approach to frame repair and alignment. Our highly-trained frame repair technicians use a multi-point process to diagnose and correct your frame problems by:
Chips and cracks are bad news for your car's windshield and don't just look bad - they can do serious damage when left unrepaired.

Driving your vehicle with a large crack or even with an object embedded in it is a bad idea, but Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration is here to help.

Any kind of item or stray piece of debris can dent your car. If you've been driving for at least a few years, chances are you've parked at a grocery store and, after shopping, returned to your car to see a big, unsightly dent. Whether they're due to inclement weather or rocks on the highway, dents cause noticeable damage that only gets worse with time. One of the most common dent repair solutions is paintless dent removal - a process that removes dents in your vehicle without removing any paint.
Paintless dent removal is great because it is not invasive and is a very efficient, cost-effective way to fix car dents before they get even worse. There are no fillers or sanding involved, making this option one of the quickest ways to remove dents. At Lowcountry Paint Body & Restoration, our dent removal technicians use several tools to gently massage dents out of your car. When we're done, we'll smooth everything back into place, leaving your car looking like new.
To make matters even better, most paintless dent removal is supported by car insurance agencies, meaning you may not pay a cent out of pocket for our dent removal services.

Jordan Fabian wasn't much of a morning person at the start of her college career, but after some struggles to excel on and off the field, she motivated herself to make changes. Now South Carolina softball's senior catcher is excelling in the classroom and on the diamond and recently received the Dodie Anderson Academic Enrichment Center MVP Award at the Gamecock Gala for her efforts.
"The biggest challenge was just doing it," said Fabian who will graduate in May with a degree in exercise science and then attend graduate school. "I think a lot of things can be done when you just make the decision to do it. One day I decided that I would do better and feel better if I made the decision to change."
When she first arrived on campus, Fabian struggled to be at her best for morning workouts, which usually started around 6:30 a.m. Being alert in her morning classes was also a struggle.
"I was not morning person, honestly, not until last year," Fabian said with a laugh. "My teammates joke that I could sleep almost anywhere. They make fun of me how easily I fall asleep anywhere. My freshman and sophomore year, I would fall asleep on the airport floor when we were traveling. My sophomore year, we were playing at a tournament in Florida, and we had some time in between games, and I took nap on the bench in the dugout. I go to bed a lot earlier now. Even when I went to bed at a reasonable time, I didn't like the mornings."
Fabian would eventually take charge of her sleeping habits, and it paid off.
"I just decided that I needed to be more awake for weights. The weight sessions that we have for the team in the fall are something that I really value. I'm going into strength and conditioning (as a career), so being in the gym is something I value, and I felt like I wasn't getting as much out of it. I was going in there, and I was taking nap on the floor before we started! So, I didn't feel like I was getting as much out of it as I should because I was half asleep. I saw a correlation with the effort and energy I put into the weight room, and it showed on the field, power-wise and speed-wise. That was a big step for my career."
"At the beginning, it did seem like graduation was a long way away, but now we have just a couple of weeks until it's all done."
After struggling offensively her first two years on the diamond, Fabian broke through last year and was tied for the team lead in home runs and was fourth in runs batted in. This season, Fabian took it up another level and hitting in the leadoff spot in the lineup, her batting average has hovered around .300 and she is second on the team in home runs and RBI, while leading the Gamecocks in runs scored, walks, and stolen bases. The success also carried over into the classroom.
"I just really wanted to get more value out of what I was doing in the mornings," Fabian said. "I was enjoying the classes I was in because I was learning about the body and how it functions. I realized how crucial sleep was, so I worked on my sleep schedule a little bit. As athletes, we don't sleep that much, but I wanted to get more out of what I was doing. No matter what the grades were, I was learning!
"They were definitely very tough classes. The first six semesters, I was taking two science classes per semester. The lectures for both of those and the labs every semester were very challenging. I did feel like that some people understood it a little easier than I did. It just clicked for them. It was frustrating too because I felt like I was understanding the material, but the exam grades weren't showing me that. That was frustrating."
During her transition the Hanahan, S.C., native was happy to see the hard work pay off but keeping herself motivated every day was still a challenge.
"Classes were a little harder to motivate myself to stay awake for," Fabian said. "Along the same lines, I wasn't getting as much out of them as I could have been. I've had a bunch of professors say that some of the most important stuff is said in the first ten minutes and the last ten minutes of class. I was definitely missing out on a lot of those first ten minutes when I was still walking in half asleep.
"Classes were definitely harder than high school. It was a lot of science classes with chemistry and anatomy. I really have only done poorly in two classes here. I get As and Bs mostly, and I might have one or two Cs on my transcript, but there were two not-so-greats on my transcript. I did retake those classes and did do very well the second time. They were challenging courses."
Fabian intends to come back and play next year with the extra season of eligibility granted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is appreciative of the tutors and academic advisors at "the Dodie" who helped keep her on the right path. Once she became more disciplined with her sleep schedule, she found herself more prepared to achieve her goals.
"At the beginning, it did seem like graduation was a long way away, but now we have just a couple of weeks until it's all done," Fabian said. "I didn't think I wouldn't graduate, but I definitely wasn't sure after my freshman year if I would be staying in exercise science just because of the science load. Now I just feel relieved and super-happy. It's rewarding."

The Berkeley Stags, Hanahan Hawks and Philip Simmons Iron Horses join three more Lowcountry programs in the top 10 of their respective classifications.
The Stags (12-1) have won nine straight games to rise to No. 2 in Class AAAAA, including a 1-0 victory at Ashley Ridge on April 4. Stags infielder Connor Barham drove in the lone run on a two-out single to left field in the top of the seventh inning. It scored teammate Rhett Legette, who reached earlier on a fielder’s choice.
Barham also earned the win on the bump, recording the final four outs with three strikeouts and no hits allowed. He relieved starter Miller McGuire, who fanned six and allowed five hits in 5⅔ innings.

More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.
The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman. Hatfield started the HIT in 1970 as a way to get a few local teams together for games during spring break. Steadman followed Hatfield at HHS and the tournament eventually swelled into a premier spring break stop as more teams from outside South Carolina accepted invitations to visit the Lowcountry.
States represented in the 2022 HIT are South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New York. Another squad will make its way into town from Washington, D.C.
“We do have some strong teams coming in,” Hanahan coach Brian Mitchell said. “We know locally we have some great teams but we have our hands full trying to win it. The team from D.C. is the team to beat. Their head coach is something like 316-80. They’re loaded. There is some quality baseball coming to town. We’re going to have to hunker down and play well.”
Eight of the local clubs are ranked inside the top 10 of their respective classifications by the South Carolina Baseball Coaches Association.
Last spring, Summerville High School rallied from a five-run deficit to edge Blessed Trinity from Roswell, Ga., with a run in the bottom of the seventh. It was the difference in the Green Wave’s 8-7 victory in the championship game. The 2021 field was smaller due to COVID concerns.
Summerville went on to capture the Class AAAAA Lower State title in 2021.
“It’s a good gauge to see how you’re playing going into the end of the season,” Mitchell said. “If you do well in the HIT, you’re going to go on and do well in the playoffs.”
Host sites for the first two days of the tournament are Hanahan, Goose Creek, James Island, Ashley Ridge, Summerville, West Ashley, Bishop England and Wando. Semifinal sites will be determined later. Hanahan will host the championship games on April 14.
There is also a junior varsity division, which was won by the host school last spring. Fifteen of the 17 squads set to compete are from the Charleston area.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – A new multi-use park is being constructed in Hanahan. It comes after more than 75% of voters approved a bond referendum for the project back in November.
The brand new 53-acre park is located next to Bowen’s Corner Elementary and will serve several purposes in the Hanahan community.
“We are just so excited about this new park,” said Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater. “When the federal government partnered with us and donated the land, it had to be used for parks and rec. It was exactly what the city of Hanahan needed.”
The last time Hanahan opened new ballfields there were only 13,700 people in the town. Now, about 29,000 call Hanahan home.
“There will be tennis courts, an artificial turf field, ballfields, a dog park, fishing pond, picnic spaces – you name it,” said Mayor Rainwater. “Everything that you would love to see in a park will be here.”
The project will cost more than $11 million. The Berkeley County School District agreed to pay nearly $1 million for artificial turf on a field so that it could be used as a practice field.
“We will partner with them to make sure they now have the things they need to play their sports,” the mayor said.
Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb said Hanahan has been working on the project for some time, even during the full ten years he was town administrator.
“It’s critical because it’s a quality-of-life project,” he said. “If you’re going to be a vibrant city, a vibrant community, people are looking for parks and recreation- do you want to draw in young families, do you want to be able to keep the families that you’ve drawn in?”
Bryce Florie grew up in Hanahan and has coached kids in the area, He said this is a great project.
“Just the way the community has grown and the need for it- it’s so important and the way the city came together… it’s a good place for everyone,” he said.
Mayor Rainwater hopes to have the park finished a year from now. The park has not yet been named.
