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.

10 Dentastic Facts about PDR

factsOur easy to understand, no jargon facts below are aimed at helping you make a decision about whether paintless dent removal is right for you!

  2. PDR is a body repair technique for removing minor dents from the body of a vehicle, used as a cheaper alternative to conventional body repair
  3. The most common use of PDR is to repair hail damage, door dents and other minor creases. Generally, the shallower the dent the more likely paintless dent repair will be suitable

    • The paint has not been broken or cracked
    • The dent is not on or near the edge of a panel
    • The panel has not previously been repaired
  5. PDR is usually less expensive than traditional repair as there are less steps involved  in the process than other repair processes
  6. Less materials are used and less time is required to repair damage using the PDR technique
  7. The PDR process is often quicker because there are less steps, vehicles are most often returned to customers on the same day
  8. Parts are not being painted with the PDR process making turnaround time quicker
  9. PDR is less invasive as less parts are disassembled and/or reassembled

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.

6 Benefits of Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)

car-body-repair-18800331Paintless Dent Removal is the ability to remove dents from your car without needing to repaint the surface of your car.

  • The original paintwork remains, helping to retain the appearance and value of your car
  • The structural integrity of your car is maintained as body panels remain intact
