Paintless Dent Repair FAQs

Highly skilled PDR technicians use specialized tools to gently reset dents back to their original state. They use existing access points on the vehicle to get behind the dent.  PDR is the preferred method of dent removal because the vehicle stays 100% original without the need for aftermarket parts.  Visit our Paintless Dent Repair page to see a video on how it works.

Yes! PDR is your best option for auto hail repair and dent removal because the vehicle is not harmed and the paint stays intact throughout the entire process. After PDR, the vehicle is restored to the exact condition it was in before the damage took place.

No.  When done correctly, paintless dent repair is a permanent fix that will last the life of your vehicle.  The dents will not reappear in the future.  We guarantee it.

No.  While paintless dent repair works on most dents, it does have its limitations.  For example, once the paint is damaged PDR cannot fix it and the dent will have to be repaired by a body shop.  Fortunately, The Dent Company is a full-service body shop so we can fix it in-house.

Besides speed and precision, the #1 reason to choose PDR over a body shop is the paint.  The factory paint is probably the best paint job your vehicle will have.  It goes through an elaborate process to apply it and is extremely expensive to duplicate it.  The condition of the factory paint has a direct impact on the value of the vehicle so it is important to keep it intact as long as possible.  With PDR, the factory paint is not harmed and stays completely intact. 

A single dent can start around $100 to repair.  It all depends on the size and location of the dent.  The location is important as some areas of the vehicle are easier to get to than others.
