PDR Frequently Asked Questions
What is Paintless Dent Removal - Paintless Dent Repair - PDR?
“Paintless dent removal” is a process of removing minor dings, dents, and creases from auto body panels that may have been caused by hail or objects hitting a panel (such as the all too common "door ding" or "parking lot dent"). The PDR process requires no sanding or painting and leaves the factory paint intact.
Can most damage be repaired with PDR?
A wide array of damages can be repaired using PDR, but if there is broken paint then PDR may not be the solution.
How is PDR done, what is the process?
PDR is typically is performed by utilizing metal rods and picks to push the damage panels from the inside of the body panel. If there is no access it may be possible to use a specialized glue to pull the dent from the outside of the panel. To help the technician see and then push the panel in the correct spot a fluorescent light is often used to help see shadows that are created by the deformation of the dent.
How much does Paintless Dent Removal Cost?
Repairs start at $75. We offer free esimates, just give us a call to schedule a time for one of our technicians to look at the vehicle.
Can I get an estimate of the phone?
Unfortunately it is impossible to determine the size, depth, sharpness and access to a dent over the phone... Our technicians will need to visually inspect your vehicle to determine an accurate estimate.
Is PDR easy to do? Can I do it myself?
It takes a skilled technician to perform what is more of an art in repairing damaged auto body panels. An untrained person may think that it can be easily done and can make a dent much worse and impossible to repair if done themselves. Our senior PDR technician, Justin, has over 13 years experience in this type of repair and is the "go to" guy for a number of high end dealerships in Minnesota for luxury and exotic vehicles that require the highest level of quality and workmanship.
How long does a repair take?
Most dings can be removed in an hour or two. More substantial damage (such as a large number of hail dents) may take a number of days to repair. We would be happy to provide you with a price and timeline estimate at no charge, just call us to schedule an estimate appointment!
Is PDR something new? Why have I not heard of it before?
Paintless dent removal (PDR) has become widely used over the past decade by car dealers, rental agencies and auctions to prepare vehicles for resale. Yet very few consumers are aware the process exists.
Will my insurance cover paintless dent rapair?
Definitely! Insurance companies see the benefit of repairing hail damaged cars the PDR way! The car is restored to its original finish and the repair time is days rather than weeks.
