Q. What is Paintless Dent Repair?
A. Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), is a method of removing minor dents and dings without using any paint to repair the vehicle damage. This is done by very experienced technicians massaging the dent from the rear or inside of the panel, or sometimes from the front using specialized tools.
Q. Is PDR Expensive?
A. The 3 most important benefits of PDR are shorter time to repair, lower cost and higher quality. PDR is the closest you can get to the dent never happening in the first place.
A typical estimate for a minor dent from a body shop usually ranges between £200 – £500 or higher.
The same dent can usually be repaired for £50 – £300 using Paintless Dent Repair.
Time savings is yet another advantage. That same dent can often be fixed in less than an hour or two, yet a body shop will take 3 – 5 days, or longer.
Q. How can you guarantee the work DentShifter do?
A. Because no grinding, fillers or primers are needed this ensures your original factory paint is not disturbed. There are no problems with filler or paint shrinkage months after the repair as is sometimes the case with other repair methods.
Cost is also a major benefit of Paintless Dent Repair. A typical estimate for a minor dent from a body shop usually ranges between £350 – £500 or higher.
Q. Will my dents come back?
A. Once a dent has been removed properly with Paintless Dent Repair, it never comes back. Sometimes a dent repaired conventionally using filler and new paint can develop a ring around the dent, or sand scratch marks 3 – 6 months after the repair. This is never the case with properly performed Paintless Dent Repair.
Q. I have a lease car, should I speak with DentShifter before I return it?
A. Yes, We can remove those dents for a lot less than you will be charged for “excessive wear and tear on your vehicle’s exterior.” If your lease is up soon, give us a call; you may be glad you did.
Q. How is PDR done?
A. Using various specially designed tools and reflection boards the dent is gently massaged out from the rear of the panel, with no damage to your paintwork.
Q. Do you do paint damage or scratches?
A. Light surface scratches can be buffed out, anything deeper will require a bodyshop.
Q. Will the dent come back?
A. The dent will not come back again unless the panel is dented again.
Q. How long does it take?
A. There are many variables, size of dent, location, depth, method required, anything up to 30 mm should be done in under one hour.
