Ted Martelle, owner

Owner and Master Technician, Ted Martelle, has more than 30 years of experience in Auto Body Repair. He began as a Master BMW Auto Body Technician and received Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) certification for his  abilities in framework, painting, bumper work, and metal and plastic repair.

After 10 years as an Auto Body Repair Technician, Ted chose to advance his career by training in the art of Paintless Dent  Removal. Paintless Dent Removal is considered to be one of the most unique methods of removing and repairing car dents and dings. He is considered an artist not only by customers, but peers and employees as well. With the help of specially designed tools and reflection, dents are gently massaged away. Ted can restore a vehicle to its original condition without affecting its paintwork. It’s pretty amazing. And when the damage is too extensive, Ted’s Dent Works and Auto Body are able to perform traditional auto body repair as well.

Martelle’s love of and appreciation for fine cars are his inspiration. “I have a true passion for what I do and I love to work with my hands,” said Martelle. “Each day, I receive instant gratification. I can take a piece of mangled metal on what was once a beautiful car and restore it to perfect condition. Customers aren’t able to see the original damage. They’re happy and the car looks great once again.”

Ted lives in Livermore and has two sons, Thomas and Chaz. In his free time, Ted enjoys camping, bass fishing and anything related to cars!.
