Avoid Paying Out for a PDR Disaster

PDR DamageAt Dr Dent, we frequently have people come to us dissatisfied with a paintless dent removal job. We aren’t talking about any customer of ours, of course. We can assure you that we pride ourselves on ensuring 100% of our customers are satisfied with the PDR work we do.

Let us clarify…

Many customers come our way due to a bodge job carried out by a PDR cowboy or even worse an attempt at DIY paintless dent removal using a kit purchased online, with minimal instructions. We can’t help but roll our eyes when we see the additional damage caused by those lacking the training it can take years to acquire.

Paintless dent removal is an art that only trained, qualified technicians should attempt. The process itself is relatively quick (dependent on the size and severity of the damage of course), it’s not an expensive service (we are often less expensive than the cost of your insurance excess) and we provide a mobile service, coming to your work or home, ensuring your convenience.

We urge you to avoid purchasing the DIY kits, conduct research when you hire a PDR technician and avoid paying out twice for a job we can do well first time – saving you time, money and ultimately further damage to the bodywork of your car.

Avoid Denting your Christmas Spirit

Dent christmasAs winter threatens to engulf us, it’s that time of year where icy roads and snow cause a vast number of accidents. We get numerous calls each year from people that have abandoned their cars in heavy snowfall, who then return to find another car has collided with them. Listen to weather warnings and if you can stay out of the snow you reduce the risk of inflicting damage to your car and denting your wallets.

The weather isn’t the only way to avoid denting your car this Christmas as you go about your Christmas shopping, when talking to our customers we realise that a number of you find you return to your cars when parked to find a dent in the door. We urge our customers to consider where they park when they are out and about, consider the cars you are parking next to, who drives these vehicles, are they careful, considerate folk or do their motors look like they have seen better days? It’s usually the vehicles that are a few years’ old and still ship shape and shiny, that have careful owners cautious about their own car as well as others.

We are a dent removal specialist and we’re here to tell you that a dent to your car doesn’t need to cause you to fork out money or affect your insurance premium. Many people upon having a crash are instantly on the phone to their insurers – after all what do we pay them for, but what you have to consider is the long term affect of that dent to your car… your yearly premium will undoubtedly increase and you delay building up the all important no claims bonus that will help decrease your premiums.

Dent Removal: Keeping you Informed

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere are a number of ways to repair dents to your car, with some methods having more disadvantages than others. Here at Dr Dent we want to keep you informed to ensure you find the right method for you, your car and your budget.

1.      Local Garages 

For most people finding themselves with a dent to their car, their first stop and often one stop is their local repair shop. While a logical choice, this option often proves costly and time consuming. While the garage will inevitably be able to effectively repair your car it’s also highly likely you will need to leave your car at the shop for a day or two, meaning alternative means of transportation will be required, while your car gets fixed.

2.      DIY

If you’re looking for the cheapest repair option you will find a large number of DIY dent removal kits on the market, which offer you all the tools you need to repair the dent yourself. The problem with this method is that repairing dents requires skill and if you choose this method you risk inflicting more damage to your car, which could end up being more expensive to repair than if you’d hired a professional in the first place.

3.      Paintless Dent Removal Expert 

At Dr Dent we offer a mobile, paintless dent removal service. While it’s unlikely we’ll beat the cost of purchasing a DIY kit, we can provide you with a guaranteed service that’s fast, efficient and professional, while beating the cost of your local garage – All from the comfort of your own home and without the need to arrange alternative transportation. As we use the PDR method there is no need to repaint your car and we can guarantee your car will look as good as new when we’re finished.
