What is a Paintless Dent Removal / Repair (PDR) ?
Paintless Dent Repair is a specialised method of removing dents, creases and dings,
without the need for costly body shop work and re-painting the damaged panel.
Paintless Dent Repair is done by carefully manipulating the metal panel using specialised tools.
So, what are the advantages and benefits of Paintless Dent Repair?
1. Probably the most important benefit is the finished result. Paintless Dent Reapirs are as close as you can get to the dent never having happened in the first place.
2. Paintless Dent Repair requires no sanding, filler or paintwork so there are no problems after the repair with things like colour matching or fading.
3. Cost is also a major benefit,typically a minor dent repaired in a body shop costs anywhere between £200 and £400, sometimes higher. That same dent can usually be repaired for less than £100 using Paintless Dent Removal.
4. Time savings are another advantage. Whereas a body shop will need your car for several days, causing you inconvenience, we can usually fix a dent, at your premises within an hour (depending on the dents size and access). Paintless Dent Repairs are also environmentally friendly as we don't use paints, filler or other harmful chemicals.
After the repair will my dents be completely gone?
Minor dents, for example parking dents, can usually be removed completely, without leaving any trace. Sharper, deeper dents are sometimes more difficult to remove fully but even on larger dents, most people are astounded with the results.
Will or can a dent come back after the repair?
No, once a dent has been removed with Paintless Dent Removal techniques it does not come back. Unless you re-dent the panel that is!!
Can any kind of dent be fixed?
No. The size, depth and location of the dent are the deciding factors. Dents can be fixed, as long as they are not too deep. Dents that are very deep, sometimes cannot be fixed using Paintless Dent Repair because the body panel is too stretched. If the paint is broken or cracked it usually means that a dent is too deep for us to repair.
Do you offer discounts for repairing more than one dent?
Yes, we offer discounts for multiple dents. If you have more than one minor dent on a panel, we will generally offer a reduced rate to repair a second or third dent. This does depend on the sizes and number of dents.
Do you repair dents for Private Car Owners or just Car Dealers and the Motor Trade?
Both. We offer the same high quality Paintless Dent Removal service to private individuals and to the motor traders alike.
Can Paintless Dent Removal make my car more saleable?
Simply put, YES! We Dent men will all do work for the trade at some time or another. It is a cheap way to prep a car for the forecourt and is common practice. Would you rather buy a car with or without that annoying car park dent? Without, of course. So in the same way you too can prep your car for sale adding value and making it more attractive to a potential buyer. Remember this is not a cheat, it is a proper repair in the same way a good paint rectification treatment is.
How much will it cost?
Costs vary as do the dents, but small dents with easy access start at £65.00. See the price list page for more guidance but as stated elsewhere, all dents need to be assessed in person to give an accurate repair cost.
