We love our cars and we love keeping them beautiful but there’s only so much we can do to protect them from the minor body damage that can occur throughout your car’s life. While parking far away from other vehicles and away from walnut trees are great strategies, its difficult to predict who will park next to you or who isn’t attending to their runaway shopping cart. Oddly enough, I find that a large percentage of my dent removal customers are among the most cautious when it comes to avoiding dents. Hearing their stories, many of my customers recalled a heart sinking feeling thinking that they had to take their car to the body shop until a friend, co-worker or family member told them about Paintless Dent Repair /Removal (PDR).
Having a simple dent repaired and repainted at a body shop can be a very costly procedure where parts, materials and labour can amount to a cost of anywhere between $600-2000 or more for to repair a single panel (depending on many factors including the vehicle model, type/location or damage and colour/paint type). While this method of dent removal can be very pricey, Paintless Dent Repair can often be performed for roughly 1/3 of the price of traditional body repair. While severe, structural and intensely deep damage may require a traditional repair, Paintless Dent Repair can give the car lover a high-quality and cost saving alternative on a wide variety of common panel damages.
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless Dent Repair / Removal (PDR) is a specialised skill and process which carefully removes minor dents, door dings and hail damage from a car’s panels without traditional painting, sanding or filling methods. An experienced technician with selection of specially designed rods and hand tools can access the the inside of the dented panel and slowly massages the dent back to its original shape.
What are the main advantages to Paintless Dent Repair?
As mentioned above, paintless dent removal can be performed for a small fraction of the conventional body repair price. Since there is no sanding, filling or painting in this process, you save the time, labour and material cost that is associated with a traditional repair. This makes PDR a truly inexpensive service for maintaining your vehicles resale value.
Why spend days without your car when a paintless repair usually takes less than 1 hour for small dents and 1-3 hours for medium to larger dents. With paintless dent repair there is no need to book a rental, borrow a car or buy bus tickets to get to work as many of the minor dent repairs can be completed during your lunch hour.
Paintless dent repair is one of the greenest auto reconditioning services. Why? Because while traditional repairs can involve harsh chemicals, vapours, dust and disposable masking material, paintless repairs can be done without any of these things. There is minimal to no material waste and no harsh chemicals being emitted into the air or water system.
Keep it Original
Another often overlooked benefit is that paintless dent repair allows you to maintain your resale value not only by removing unsightly dents, but by protecting the integrity of your original factory paint job. Why is this important? For one there is no need to worry about the dented panel’s colour matching the rest of the car after the repair. We all have seen some vehicles with a door or fender that looks slightly off in colour compared to the rest of the vehicle and since paintless dent repair doesn’t replace the paint, the repaired panel will still look the same as before.
Additionally, keeping your original factory paint can do wonders for your car’s value as prospective buyers will be happy to know that has not been filled / repainted eliminating the suspicion that heavy damage had occurred on the vehicle.
