Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)?
    The paintless dent repair process is the art of removing minor dings, dents, and creases from a vehicle, while maintaining the integrity of the factory or custom paint finish. PDR allows expert technicians to transform the damaged area back to its original condition without the need for costly body fillers, sanding, and painting typically used by traditional body repair shops, while saving you time and money.

  • What types of damage can be repaired using the PDR process?
    The basic factors that determine whether or not the damaged area(s) can be repaired with the PDR process include the size, depth, and location of the damage. Good candidates for this process include: Smooth, shallow dings, dents, and creases ranging in diameter from dime-sized to basketball-sized; and dents in plastic bumpers that have no holes, tears, or paint damage and are still fully affixed to the vehicle.

  • Will the paintless dent repair process harm my factory or custom finish?
    With a basic knowledge of plastic and metal properties, certified technicians can transform the damaged area back to its original condition without the need for costly body fillers, sanding, and painting typically associated with conventional body shop repair work. This enables them to restore the damaged area(s), while preserving the integrity of the factory or custom paint finish.

  • How much does PDR cost compared to conventional body shop repair work?
    Because the damaged area(s) can be repaired without the need for costly body fillers, sanding, and painting used by traditional body shops, the cost generally runs at approximately one-third of the cost associated with conventional body shop repair work. The real cost savings involves the time saved by completing repairs in minutes or hours rather than days or even weeks required for traditional repair work.
