Paintless Dent Removal

What is paintless dent removal?

Paintless dent removal (also known as PDR) is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, if there is paint damage, PDR may not be suitable.

PDR is commonly used to repair hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. Limiting factors for a successful repair using PDR include the flexibility of the paint and the amount the metal has been stretched by the damage incurred. Extremely sharp dents and creases may not be repairable — at least not without painting afterwards — but our skilled technician may surprise you.

Are the dents popped out?

No, they are not. The PDR process involves the use of custom-designed dent removal tools that are applied to the backside of a vehicle's sheet metal. With precise pressure applied to the damaged area, our PDR technician massages slowly and meticulously to re-form the metal to its original shape. This is done without the use of sandpaper, fillers, primers, or paint.

How big of a dent can you fix?

We can repair a dent up to two feet long!

What kind of damage can you repair?

Dings and dents happen all the time. If it's not a run-away shopping cart or an accidental impact from another vehicle's door, it's a smack from a golf ball or a falling tree branch. You'll inevitably get at least one ding or dent throughout your vehicle's lifetime, so why not have it fixed quickly, affordably, and — most importantly of all — properly!

Will PDR damage the finish on my car?

The original finish is not disturbed, and there is rarely evidence that a dent even existed.

What kind of dent can't be fixed?

All repair methods have their limitations. A dent with a sharp crease or one in which the paint has been cracked cannot be repaired using the PDR method.

I drive a leased vehicle. Can PDR help me?

Absolutely! You are responsible for any cosmetic damage found on your vehicle during the lease term. The dealership will charge regular body shop rates to repair any dings or dents that do not pass their inspection. PDR will save you money by having these dings and dents repaired before your vehicle is due for its inspection.
