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.

Call us today on 07999 112 112 or complete our contact form to request a free, no obligation quotation. We can discuss special rates for vehicles requiring the removal of multiple dents.

Your Right to Choose Where you Fix your Car!

Don’t give insurance companies the choice when it comes to repairing your vehicle

Handwritten Insurance Claim Form with pen and calculatorInsurance companies are keen to organise car repairs at a body shop of their choice to keep expenses low, for their benefit of course. If you think about it this not only poses a risk to the validity of your vehicle’s warranty, it also is a cause for concern if you’re not familiar with the work of the allocated garage.

We want to put the record straight for you. Your car insurance company do not have the right to enforce you use a car repair shop suggested by them. A directive from the Office of Fair Trading, issued in 1993 validated that this was not the case, but many insurance companies avoid making their customers aware of their rights.

All repair shops should be able to manage your claim, saving you time and stress. In the case of paintless dent removal, we’d advise that you avoid going through your insurance company altogether as it’s often cheaper for you to come straight to us than pay the excess and suffer increased insurance premiums when it comes to renew your policy.

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.
