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.
Paintless Dent Repair is a faster, more affordable way to get your car in top shape by getting rid of unsightly dents and dings in the body. However, low costs and quick turnaround is not all you need to know about the process. There are some limitations to these types of repairs that you should consider before rushing to the auto shop. The general rule of thumb is that PDR works for minor dents and creases - but what is considered minor? Is it just the size that matters? No, sometimes even large creases and dents, several inches in diameter, can be fixed with paintless dent repair. Size is a factor indeed, but the extent to which the paint is stretched is also important. Sharp dents or dings, no matter how small, may require body filler and repainting. If your vehicle is suitable for PDR, then the process is indeed very straightforward. Our qualified technicians will use metal rods and body picks to push the dent out or special tabs to pull out the dents.
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.
