If you hate the look of dents and dings on your vehicle's door, bumper or fender, but you worry about the cost of repainting, then Paintless Dent Repair is the right solution for you. The size of the damage and the location will impact whether or not PDR is the right technique for your vehicle, but most minor and unsightly dents caused by shopping carts or bumps in the road can easily be fixed this way. There are other limiting factors for a successful PDR, a very common one being the flexibility of the paint. However, today's vehicles mostly have refined paint finishes which do allow for successful paintless dent repair. The extent to which the metal has been stretched by the damage is another factor to consider before moving forward with such a technique, which is why our expert technicians will conduct a thorough assessment before proceeding with PDR.
There are basically two ways to perform paintless dent repairs: from the inside (pushing the dents out), or from the outside (pulling them out). Whichever method they choose, the technicians will have to manipulate the metal at the right height and in the precise locations. To repair dents and dings from the inside, they'll utilize metal rods and body picks, while fixing creases from the outside requires glue and specially designed tabs. The exact method is greatly influenced by the location of the damage, the size and the extent to which the paint has been stretched. In many cases, even though paintless dent repair is not a viable solution to fix the damage, it can still be used before repainting, as a way to reduce or eliminate the use of body filler.

We have some of the best technicians in the field - it's as simple as that. Paintless Dent Repair has become very commonly used for fixing minor dents and dings, and the technique has evolved, but it still involves a high level of manual labor. The more skilled the technicians, the better the chances of repairing even larger dents. The location of the dent, the size and the extent are all factors that influence whether or not PDR is a feasible solution, but skilled and experienced technicians can certainly tip the balance. Not only that, we'll also make the process as stress-free as possible for you. We liaise with the insurance, conduct thorough damage assessments, and make sure the car is delivered to you fully cleaned and in top shape.
