Auto Hail Repair - Paintless Dent Repair Estimates

Please Note: (PDR) Paintless dent repair estimates for vehicle(s) with severe hail damage are extremely difficult to give online or over the phone.  This is due to the sheer volume of dents that hail causes and not all dents are easily visible without special equipment.  Your full-coverage insurance policy will cover auto hail repair. We HIGHLY recommend bringing your vehicle to our facility for a complete inspection from one of our paintless dent repair technicians.  As a bonus, when you bring your vehicle to The Dent Company (TDC) for auto hail repair, we will waive your deductible up to $500 per vehicle we repair.

For A Paintless Dent Repair Estimate - Size Matters

When preparing a PDR estimate, the size of the dent is just one factor that is taken into consideration. When counting the dents, please take note of the size.  Most dents can be broken down into four sizes.  Use the above coins as a guide when measuring the size of the dents and mark them on our PDR Estimate Worksheet.  This will save you time when entering the information into the estimate calculator.  Simply download and print it out.

Location is Important For Paintless Dent Repair Estimates

The location of the dent is important when writing a (PDR) Paintless Dent Repair Estimate.  This, primarily, is due to access.  Certain dents are easier/more difficult to access, due to their location.  Our Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) technique uses existing access openings in the vehicle.  Using specialized tools we return the dent back to its natural state and your vehicle stays 100% original.  Please make sure to note the location of all dents on our PDR Estimate Worksheet.

The Number Of Dents - Needed For A Paintless Dent Repair Estimate

Now that we know how to check for the size and location of the dents, we finally need the total number. The easiest way to count the dents is to start at one end of the vehicle and do a complete walk around.  Use the (PDR) Estimate Worksheet to quickly tally up the number and size of each dent in each location of the vehicle.  Take your time and be as accurate as you can but don't stress too much over it.  Just do the best you can.

How we calculate a PDR Estimate

Our Hail Matrix - How We Calculate A Paintless Dent Repair Estimate

So, what do we do with your Paintless Dent Repair Estimate Worksheet?  We plug that information into our PDR Hail Matrix, of course.  While it looks intimidating, at first, the Hail Matrix breaks down everything into size, location and number of dents. CR is short for conventional repair.  When the damage exceeds the capability of PDR or it just makes more sense, that particular panel will be replaced and repainted in our body shop.
