Paintless Dent Repair to have overflow downtown building for next hail season

UPDATED — Next spring, the season that Mother Nature often likes to rain hail storms on Wichita, Tom Dorsett will be moving his Paintless Dent Repair into a building he purchased at 824 E. Murdock.

“We’re going to use it for overflow,” he says.

“We rent a building every year,” Dorsett says of needing extra space in peak times. The Murdock building is one he rented last year.

“We decided it would be a good one to buy.”

Dorsett does work with Auto Craft Collision Repair, and he has an office in the downtown Auto Craft shop. He also has a technician at each of the five Auto Craft shops in the area.

The new space won’t be available until the spring because someone is leasing the 13,400-square-foot building.

Kris Wessel of NAI Martens and Ed Roberts of Real Estate Resources handled the deal for Dorsett’s space.

Dorsett says it makes sense for his overflow space to be downtown since that’s where much of his business is.

“Shorter distance on running cars.”
