Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe we can answer a question you already have?
What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?
PDR is the art of removing minor dents and dings without sanding, filling, or painting. Highly skilled craftsmen work the metal from the inside out using metal rods and hand tools to remove dents, while preserving the original finish of your car.
What are the benefits of Paintless Dent Repair?
The most important benefit is quality. This method is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place. No grinding, bondo, fillers, or primers are needed because your original factory paint is not disturbed. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is typical with most conventional repairs. Cost is also a major benefit of Paintless Dent Repair. A typical estimate for a minor dent from a body shop usually ranges between $350 – $500 or higher. That same dent can usually be repaired for $75 – $150 using Paintless Dent Repair. Time savings is yet another advantage. That same dent can often be fixed in less than an hour. A body shop will take 3 – 5 days, or longer.
Will my paint be damaged?
No. Today’s factory paints are very flexible and will not be damaged in any way by this process. Paintless Dent Repair is the only way to repair a dent and still keep your factory paint.
How long will repairs take?
