What Is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is an advanced technique that is less invasive and less expensive than traditional dent removal. This specialized method can be used on both steel and aluminum body panels when the paint surface is still intact. Rather than having to entirely replace damaged body parts, dents are pushed or pulled out using specialized tools and equipment. Many types of dents, dings and even creases can be treated effectively with this method.

Benefits of Paintless Dent Repair

  • Time efficient
  • Substantial cost savings
  • Eco-friendly
  • Retain vehicle value
  • No paint color matching issues

Because PDR eliminates the need for new body panels and doesn't require paint replacement, it's an environmentally friendly alternative to other dent repair methods. It can also be completed in a much faster timeframe. In most cases, same-day turnaround is possible. As previously mentioned, it's also a more affordable solution, since it requires fewer materials and work hours to complete. Another notable benefit is that it preserves your car's factory paint job, which helps retain vehicle resale value.

Paintless Dent Repair Process

  1. Initial assessment: Our technicians will assess the damage and determine if the dent can be repaired using PDR. Approximately 80-90% of dents can be treated with this method.
  2. Accessing the dent: Next, we'll carefully access the dent to begin removal. Our expert technicians will use special tools to further analyze the dent and determine where and how much pressure to apply to gently push or pull the dent out. If the dent must be pushed out from behind, this generally requires temporarily removing parts such as body panels and lights.
  3. Completion: When the dent is removed and everything is back to factory position, we'll reinstall any parts that were temporarily taken out during the repair process. A final inspection will be performed and your car will be ready to return to you!
