Our most common solutions our clients are looking for

Here are some of the most common solutions our clients are looking for when they consult with A-Trendz:

  • Are you or someone in your home “directionally challenged?” With the price of gas today who can afford to get lost? Our Navigation systems are both affordable and convenient. Visit our store and check out our portable units or have us install factory style built-in units from Alpine, Pioneer, Kenwood, Garmin and Sony.
  • For the music lover, A-Trendz installs i-Pod interfaces, HD Radio upgrades, cd radios and complete sound systems that will make your drive much more enjoyable.
  • A movie anyone? Let’s face it, sometimes we just want the kids and their guests to be quite for a while. Why not have a DVD video system installed. We have drop down screen sizes from 8.5? to 15?, headrest monitors available in 7? and 9? and in-dash 7?& 9” screens. All are available with many features including built in DVD players, wireless video games and sd card/USB port inputs.
  • Window tinting is an affordable way to upgrade the look of your ride, preserve the interior and protect you or your children from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is also a good security feature to help hide objects inside from the passerby’s with less than honorable intentions.
  • A “clear bra” is a great way to stop paint chips on the front of your vehicle without changing the appearance. A clear film from Venture Shield, SunTek and 3M is applied to the hood, fender tips, front bumper and side mirrors to stop the damage from stones and other harmful elements the road kicks up that can ruin your cars’ paint finish.
  • Paintless Dent Repair is a smart alternative for repairing minor dents, dings and hail damage versus a body shop which takes days and costs hundreds of dollars. Our expert craftsmen can remove that unsightly damage in as little as an hour and preserve your original finish. Generally, we can do this for as little as $75.00. All work is performed on site with satisfaction guaranteed. Stop by for a free estimate.
