Erase Dents Like Magic with Paintless Repair
WHAT IS PDR?
Paintless dent repair (PDR) is a technique used to remove minor dents and dings from a vehicle’s body without the need for paint or body fillers. PDR involves using specialized tools to gently push, pull, or massage the dented metal back into its original shape from behind the panel, or through the utilization of glue pulling from face of the panel. This technique is most effective for small dents, such as those caused by hail, minor collisions, or door dings.
PDR is generally faster and less expensive than traditional auto body repair methods, and it can help preserve the original factory finish of the vehicle. However, not all dents are suitable for PDR, and larger or more severe damage may require traditional repair methods.

BENEFITS OF PDR
PDR is often less expensive than traditional auto body repair, as it requires less labor and materials.
PDR can typically be completed in a matter of hours, rather than days or weeks required for traditional repairs.
Preserves Original Paint
Since PDR doesn’t involve repainting or body fillers, the original factory finish of the vehicle is preserved.
