What is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless Dent Removal is the art of moving the metal of your vehicle back into original place and maintaining the original finish on the vehicle, usually preformed with tools, slowly massaging the metal, or with glue pull technique.  Where a tab is glued to the outside of the dent and pulled upward with special tools.

WHAT IS PDR?

Paintless dent removal takes years to learn, we usually gain access to the back side of the dent, slowly massaging the metal with pin point accuracy back to the original shape. In some cases where the back side is not accessible, we will use a glue pull technique, we attach special tabs with special formulated PDR glue and pull the dent from the top side.  Paintless Dent removal is not a part time job, it’s a full time passion.  This is an art, and not all artist are at a equal level.   I have often compared paintless dent removal to playing the game of billiards, just cause you have a high dollar pool cue, does not mean you can play, and the levels of skill in the industry share similarities. However choosing a pdr technician should always come first before a body shop.

Paintless dent removal/repair is better than a body shop!

Dent Removal Scam

Do not be scammed! Caution! Help dent experts prevent fraud.

Scams have been around for decades, and has occurred throughout the US. and all over the world. Please watch videos and be informed about Paintless Dent Removal.

This video is a scam.  The dent guy leaves the paste on the vehicle and tells you to remove it in a few days.   He’s gone, and the phone number he gave you is often no good, or stolen business card from a real Dent Expert.   The dents in this video could have easily been removed back to factory perfection, by a real dent expert.

 

Always request a business card, and request a receipt or invoice, after work is complete. Call number on business card before you agree to repairs, check https://DentExpertList.com for the photo of the dent expert!  You may request a written estimate before you proceed with the repair, as I always offer this to my customers.   Please rest assured that there are plenty of trained dent experts that are mobile, and are great at their profession.  I myself am a 20 year mobile dent expert and I have seen some really terrible repairs.   There is a group on facebook called “PDR Hall of Shame” and you can view many terrible repairs that are posted daily.   Paintless dent removal is a art, and it’s not a hobby, it’s a career.  You can also view great photos of Paintless Dent Removal on facebook at “PDR Hall of Fame”. Experts from around the world post pictures.

If anyone tells you that they do “pdr on the side” then you should run.   The failure rate after schooling in the PDR industry is one of the highest, PDR takes years to become good.     PDR Hall of Shame group link is www.pdr.ninja

 

  • ALWAYS GET A RECEIPT OR INVOICE FOR WORK PERFORMED
  • REQUEST A WRITTEN ESTIMATE
  • CALL THE NUMBER ON THE BUSINESS CARD (BEFORE WORK STARTS)
  • ASK QUESTIONS
  • Confirm they are on DentExpertList.com (Profile Images Required)
  • If the photo does not match the one listed on DentExpertList than call the police.   You are being scammed.

Body shops will use conventional repairs on your vehicle if they have no other work.  However if the body shop is busy and they care about the best interest of their customer, they always call in dent expert. If the body shop fails to do this, then it’s all about money, and it’s about money in their pockets. If they are not calling in an Expert, they are not looking out for your best interest, nor the safety of the vehicles behind you when this filler comes flying off the vehicle at 70mph!  When body filler is used there is always a risk of it cracking.  When hail damage is present, a dent expert should always be your first choice.  Sometimes painting is required after the PDR process, however this is still the best option for the customer, to minimize body filler, in most cases it eliminates fillers. Below is an extreme example of filler cracking, due to a small impact or just over time.
