If you have a small dent that needs repairing, you may be wondering what the best solution is. Well, we have good news for you – paintless dent repair (PDR) is the answer! PDR is a technique that uses specialized tools and skills to remove dents without damaging the paint job. This makes it the perfect solution for small dent removal. In this blog post, we will explain why PDR is better than other methods such as door ding repair. Keep reading to learn more!
Small dents are small in size and caused by minor collisions such as door dings. They can also be caused by hail or rocks, for example. These small but annoying dimples in your paint job don’t have to be permanent thanks to PDR! This technique works on all sizes of vehicles from cars and trucks to vans and SUVs – even compact ones like Smart Cars . The process involves removing the panels where the dent is located so that we can get behind them with our tools; then, using rods and body picks with different tips (sometimes heat), we massage out each individual ding manually until they are no more than a distant memory.
Small Dent Repair Costs Less With PDR
With paintless dent repair, dent removal usually costs a lot less than what you would spend at the body shop. In some cases, a small dent can cost as little as $100 to repair depending on how large it is and the location of the dent. Dents with large sizes and those that are harder to repair can increase the cost. Even so, a small ding or dent can be repaired for less than the deductible on a typical vehicle. There is no need to file a claim with your insurance company and be liable for increased rates. Contact Dent Erasers to get a free estimate on your dent repair
Paintless Dent Repair Is Fast
Dent Erasers offers a same-day dent and door ding repair service for small dents. Depending on the size and location of the dent, we can usually fix it while you wait. PDR does not require painting or any prep work. The technician can begin repairing the dent right away. The average dent or ding takes between one and two hours to fix, depending on its location.
The Repair Is Permanent
In their original condition, factory parts are designed to withstand the rigors of daily driving. When the metal dents, it actually stretches. This stresses the metal, its surrounding area and the paint. Over time, this could lead to body panels loosening, causing bigger dents and allowing paint to degrade or chip and rust to develop. Body filler is used to fix dents, but the dent remains and the metal is stressed.
With Paintless Dent Repair, the metal is restored to its original state. Unlike body shops, PDR is a permanent fix. The dent will never return or further damage to your paint will never occur.
Car Dealerships Trust PDR For Their New Cars
PDR is trusted by car dealerships to fix damage to their new vehicles. This is particularly useful when a dealership suffers door dings. By using PDR, their cars are completely restored much faster and can be sold as new.
DIY Dent Removal Kits
A DIY dent repair kit available on Amazon may seem appealing. What should you do? Avoid it. They will not work, and you may end up causing further damage to your paint. Your repair will therefore be more expensive. Kits are available for less than $50. This may be half the cost of your PDR job for a small dent and even though you purchased the kit it takes a skilled technician to use it properly. If you damage the paint, which happens often with diy jobs, paint cannot be repaired using PDR. Instead, it has to be taken to a body shop. All too often, we see this happen when people try to fix a dent themselves. To bring it to us in the first place would have been much cheaper.
A hair dryer or dry ice will not repair a dent. Do not believe what you see on YouTube.
