It’s incredibly frustrating. You walk out of the grocery store to find a shopping cart butted against your vehicle or a dent from a careless driver opening their car door into the side of yours.
Damages such as dents and dings to your vehicle can happen as the result of things like parking lot issues, body or bumper bangs, hail storm damage, etc. The perception of high cost and lengthy turnaround time for body work cause most people simply live with these unsightly imperfections on their vehicles.
This is where paintless dent repair comes in. It provides an affordable alternative to help keep you from looking at your dinged up vehicle with disdain.
Paintless dent repair, otherwise known as PDR, is a non-invasive method of removing dents or dings in your vehicle's body without fillers or sanding while preserving the original factory paint.
Depending on the dent and the dents location, the removal process is performed by our certified technicians using a variety of specialized tools and alignment devices. Some dings are easily removed with a type of vacuum process, others are accessed from the back side of panels and smoothed back to their original shape leaving the exterior paint untouched. Then a little polishing and buffing and the results can be undetectable.
The whole process is less time consuming than traditional body repair for sheet metal and can help you love looking at your vehicle once again. The process is also a lot less expensive than traditional paint repair and in some cases, can be finished within a day.
Is your vehicles damage a candidate for PDR? If you have damage to your vehicle that looks like a basketball landed on your hood, but the paint is not cracked or chipped, your vehicle is probably a good candidate for paintless dent repair. Even dents that look like a shopping cart ran into the side of your car, or a careless individual opened their door into yours, so long as the paint is not chipped or cracked, is most likely a good candidate for this solution.
