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. Cracks and chips can quickly turn from a minor inconvenience to a safety hazard by impairing your vision. If your windshield crack is bad enough, you might even get pulled over by a police officer. 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.

The South Carolina Supreme Court permanently blocked the state’s six-week abortion ban Thursday in a 3-2 ruling. The high court ruled the ban violated the state constitution’s right to privacy.
The ruling made national news, with The New York Times writing, it was “a major victory for abortion rights in the South, where the procedure is strictly limited.”
The justices based the majority decision on an explicit provision of the South Carolina constitution — something that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t have — that guarantees a personal right to privacy.
The Times added, “It is the first final ruling by a state Supreme Court on the state constitutionality of abortion since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, which ended the right to abortion under the federal constitution that had been in force for half a century, and left the matter to the states.”

Another large apartment development is coming to the Lowcountry, and a $30 million office project is planned for Mount Pleasant.
Aventon Companies recently broke ground on a 394-unit multifamily community on a 30-acre site on Bees Ferry Road near Savannah Highway. The property abuts Main Road and sits behind a 297-unit apartment development called Satori West Ashley that’s nearing completion next to Publix supermarket.
Aventon Bees Ferry is the Raleigh-based developer’s first foray into South Carolina.
One- to three-bedroom units will be outfitted with high-end finishes, details the developer said are normally found in luxury single-family homes.
The complex will include elevators, a pool, gaming lawn and clubhouse with areas for lounging, remote work and fitness. A pet spa and dog park also will be available.
Aventon Bees Ferry is expected to open in early 2024. Rental rates have not been disclosed.
“With Charleston consistently experiencing year-over-year employment growth while seeing its economy and tourism industry reach unparalleled heights, Aventon decided to launch our first project in South Carolina here,” said Ron Perera, senior managing director. “South Carolina is a key part of our regional growth plan.”
Last January, Aventon presented plans to the city of Charleston to build a 320-unit apartment community on a 20-acre site on Clements Ferry Road next to apparel maker Gildan’s distribution facility at Jack Primus Road. Work has not begun on the Berkeley County site, and a spokeswoman said the company declined to comment on the status of “active projects.”
A new $30 million office development is in the works for northern Mount Pleasant.
Wilmington, N.C.-based SAMM Properties plans to build three office structures of 26,400 square feet each on an undeveloped 6.78-acre parcel at U.S. Highway 17 and George Browder Boulevard between the Church at LifePark and REV Federal Credit Union. The future All American Boulevard makes up the western edge of the property.
The projected mix of uses includes 66,000 square feet for general office space and 13,200 square feet for medical purposes, according to plans presented to the town of Mount Pleasant. Nearly 340 parking spaces are planned.
The project must go through several levels of reviews, including the town’s Planning Commission on Jan. 18, but the developer hopes the project can be completed in 2024. SouthState Bank owns the land.
A Virginia-based real estate firm is expanding to South Carolina.
Long & Foster Real Estate, a subsidiary of HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, now has an office at 201 Sigma Drive in the Nexton development near Summerville.
The company operates more than 200 offices along the East Coast from the Carolinas to New Jersey.
Lonnie Plaster, who’s lived in the area for more than a decade and worked with Long & Foster’s team for a longer period, will lead the Palmetto State expansion as senior vice president and regional manager.
He also currently oversees Long & Foster’s Agent Services Group, which provides marketing and transaction management support services to its real estate agents.

Boaters rejoice — more parking is coming to one of the busiest boat landings in the East Cooper area. Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission is expanding parking for the Shem Creek Boat Landing with the purchase of the adjacent Simmons Street property.
The 0.53-acre two-lot property was purchased for $1.9 million from PSC, LLC and is expected to bring an additional 20 trailer spaces to the boat landing. At the boat landing, there is only one spot for a vehicle without trailers and 28 parking spaces for vehicles with boat trailers, including one ADA-accessible space.
“The purchase of this land is wonderful news for boat owners and any user of the Shem Creek Boat Landing, which is currently one of the county’s busiest boat landings,” said CCPRC Executive Director Kevin Bowie. “We were very pleased to have the opportunity to expand parking at this site to better serve the community.”
The Shem Creek Boat Landing is usually at capacity during favorable weather and peak seasons. When the lot is full, people will choose to launch their boat and then try to find parking for their vehicle in overflow parking at the Moultrie Plaza shopping center. This causes a backlog of other boaters waiting to launch their boat or come back in from the water. CCPRC is hopeful the additional parking will reduce wait times for boat launching and returning to the landing.
Patricia Newshutz, the director of planning and development for Charleston County Parks, said the extra parking will provide additional parking close to the landing, freeing up street parking for businesses in the area.
“The additional parking at the new site is an effort to replace parking that has been lost for the boaters. Also, the additional parking will provide an alternative to boaters parking on the street right-of-way. With additional parking close to the landing, the surrounding business and residents will be able to have street parking available for their customers and guests,” Newshutz said.
There is no anticipated completion date for the project at this time. The property will be rezoned, and planning and permitting, which can take upwards of a year, will happen soon after, Newshutz said.
The parking lot at the landing will undergo previously-scheduled accessibility and drainage improvements. Improvements will provide include reconstructing sidewalks, installing ADA ramps, reconstructing parking spaces and replacing storm grates that have large grids with ones that have smaller gaps to meet ADA standards.
“In addition, the parking lot will be repaved and new stormwater structures and storm drain lines will be installed to correct puddling, which causes potholes in the pavement. Also, a small bit of dredging under the floating dock will remove built-up sediment, which causes the dock to list at low tide,” Newshutz said.
The boat landing will be closed during the construction of the improvements, which are expected to begin the second week of January and continue until March 31, 2023.

Two new retail shops are ready to launch in a Target-anchored shopping center in North Charleston.
“Opening soon” and “Now hiring” signs are posted in front of Advance Auto Parts and Popshelf in North Rivers Towne Center at 7250 Rivers Ave.
They are splitting a formerly 31,433-square-foot vacant space next to a recently opened Buy Buy Baby store. The retail center is owned by LBX Investments of Los Angeles.
Popshelf is a new concept from Dollar General that offers home furnishings, party items, toys and beauty products. It’s geared toward the suburban shopper with a household income between $50,000 and $125,000, higher than Dollar General’s lower-income targeted customers.
Opening dates for the new stores have not been announced.
Tool giant Harbor Freight plans to set up shop in Summerville.
The Calabasas, Calif.-based retailer recently signed an extended lease for a 16,000-square-foot structure to be built at 388 E. 5th North St., also known as U.S. Highway 78, about a block south of the Berlin G. Myers Parkway, according to Dorchester County land records.
The 1.43-acre site, owned by Henbell Summerville HFT LLC of Augusta, Ga., sits east of a Spinx convenience store and gas station and next to Sawmill Branch. It also abuts a retail center where Planet Fitness and Palmetto State Armory are located.
Harbor Freight’s lease is for 15 years with five five-year renewal options. The agreement also grants the tenant the first right of refusal to purchase the property.
In northern Mount Pleasant, Red Bird Hospitality Group LLC plans to open a new Bohemian Bull tavern and beer garden in January in a 6,143-square-foot space at 2668 U.S. Highway 17.
The franchise location for the new bar and grill is the former site of Carrabba’s Italian Grill. It’s also near the newly opened Cabana Burgers & Shakes at 2664 Highway 17.
Bohemian Bull’s flagship venue is on Folly Road on James Island. Another restaurant is in Greenville, with a new site coming to Mauldin in the Upstate and another in Grapevine, Texas.
A Connecticut-based restaurant specializing in rotisserie chicken is close to opening in the Charleston area.
El Pollo Guapo recently applied for its state alcohol license at 1130 Folly Road on James Island where Black Magic Café operated before closing its last Lowcountry location in September after 13 years.
The new restaurant will offer whole roasted chickens, sides, tacos, rice bowls, salads, desserts and other items.
The company’s website says it plans to open by the end of the year and bring a food truck.
Two new car washes are on the way to the Centre Pointe development in North Charleston.
Whistle Express, part of Charlotte-based Magnolia Wash Holdings, is building its first South Carolina location beside Mellow Mushroom on Tanger Outlet Boulevard while Tommy’s Express plans to take over the former Burger King site at Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard near Walmart and Tanger Outlets.
Michigan-based Tommy’s Express has two other locations in the Charleston area on Ashley Phosphate Road in North Charleston and Trolley Road in Summerville. Opening dates have not been announced for either location.
A luxury rental transportation business recently added a second U.S. location in Charleston.
Double Black set up office at 310 Broad St. but has a vehicle lot at 1211 Palm St. in Hanahan. Its other location is in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Case Resor is the owner of both sites, which offer transportation services and party buses for weddings, parties and other outings.

SAN ANTONIO - Georgia has 247Sports No. 2 recruiting class with several of them set to play this week in the All-American Bowl.
247Sports caught up with them as they arrived.
Mount Pleasant (SC) Oceanside Collegiate Academy Top247 offensive tackle Monroe Freeling was first to check in.
“Everything,” he said of what went into his decision to play for UGA. He is the 247Sports Composite’s No. 7 offensive tackle and No. 57 prospect overall. “As soon as I went up there for my last visit there wasn’t another school that could compete and also felt I didn’t need to go on anymore visits.
“The culture is big. The development for sure, especially in the weight room, thats the biggest reason I’m enrolling early. They really build them like robots in there. It’s kind of insane, they have the best strength program in the country.
“Of course they’re a championship-caliber program. Even when their backs are against the wall like it was against Ohio State, they still find a way to pull through.”
Freeling is excited to get to Athens this month and get to work with his classmates.
“I think just a bunch of hard-working people,” Freeling said. “I think that’s the biggest thing. Everybody has the same mindset. I think we have 19 guys enrolling early. Everyone wants to get in the weight room and be the next team that brings a ring to Georgia.”
Jacksonville (Fla.) Westside defensive lineman Jordan Hall arrived next. He chose the Bulldogs on Dec. 22 and put pen to paper during the Early Signing Period.
“There were no negatives at all going there,” Hall said. “I feel I fit well in their scheme and I feel Coach Scott really mapped out a plan for me. I feel like he’s building something different. Just trying to recreate something he did with the draft class last year bringing me and Ja (Jarrett) in and trying to rebuild it like he did with Jordan (Davis) and Jalen Carter.
“The way the program is moving right now. They’re top dawg. I did a lot of losing in high school. I feel like doing a lot of winning in college will do me justice. They work hard and I fit their standard working hard, grinding every day and earning everything you get.”
Top247 offensive lineman Kelton Smith made his way to the Alamo City next.
"I love the coaching staff and how much they care about me," Smith said. "I love my teammates I met so far I met down there. Mykel Williams we're close like a brother, AJ Harris, things like that and I love the facility and I think thats a great program for me to get where I want to be in life. They’re very competitive and work hard."
"Being able to compete and connect with other players that are my level," Wilson said of what he's looking forward to. "You don't get to see that typically in public high school. Being able to compete with great players."
Wilson committed to Georgia on Dec. 21 choosing the Bulldogs over Ohio State.
"It was more so the relationships I was able to make over the past year," Wilson said. "Coach Diribe, Coach Smart and Coach Schu(mann) really helped me in my decision. I think one of the big things for me was the culture, the fans, the players, the staff, everyone was connecting and the main goal was to be a family."
Top247 tight end Pearce Spurlin got in shortly before dinner. He is eager to play after injury cost him his final prep season.
"Playing against the best players in the country when I kind of missed out on my senior year," Spurlin said. "I want to show people I'm the best tight end in the country because I feel that's what I would'e done if I would'e played this year. I'm excited to build a relationship with guys from all over the country. It has been a dream forever. I've watched this game for as long as I can remember."
Spurlin will enroll early in Athens.
"Learning from the guys that are already there and being part of a winning culture and building relationships that will last forever."
Georgia signees AJ Harris, linebacker CJ Allen, tight end Lawson Luckie and Jarrett were selected to play in the game but won’t play as they’ve already enrolled and began their football careers for the Bulldogs.
