Frequent asked Questions

What is Paintless Dent Removal?

PDR is a relatively new process of removing minor dents, dings and hail damage from a vehicle without the use of bondo or the need of repainting. The process requires a highly skilled technician to gain access behind the dented area with special PDR tools. The dent is then meticulously "massage" back to its original pre-dent condition without disturbing the original paint of the vehicle.

How much does it cost?

Depending on depth, size, location and difficulties in gaining access to the dent.


Most of our repair costs between $85 - $185. Which covers most door dings and minor dents.
Dents on a body line or creases between $135 - $350. (These are some of the most difficult dents to remove)
Larger dents start at $200 and up.

Please keep in mind that estimates are determined by location of dent(s), depth, size, and difficulties of repair.

Hail damage vehicle must first be seen and estimate using insurance approved hail damage chart.

.
 

Disadvantages: PDR only works on minor dents, not collision base damages that requires a body shop repair.

Will my dent be 100% gone?

Minor dents and dings, yes. The deeper the dent, the more difficult it is to repair. Our customers are amazed after PDR was performed on their car. They can not tell where the dent was after we are done, even on larger dents.

Are the dents repaired using a suction cup?

No. The repairs are done by slowly manipulating the metal behind the dented area with special PDR tools until the dent disappears. Its a craft that requires skills and patience.

Will the dents come back?

Absolutely not. Once a dent is repaired, it will never comes back, unless you are hit on the same area again.
 
Can any dent be repaired? 

No, The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by PDR are depth and location.
 Dents the size of a basketball can be successfully repaired as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, very small size dents that are too deep cannot be removed using PDR. About 5% of dents can not be repaired due to their locations, such as dents on very edge of panels with double folding metal and heavily braced areas.

Will my paint be damaged?

No, the factory paints on today's vehicles are very durable. If performed properly by a qualified technician, the paint will not be damage in any way. PDR is the only way to repair a dent and still keep the original paint of the car.

What if the paint is cracked or chipped?

Some dents may have scuff marks left behind from another vehicle at the time of impact. In most cases these can be buffed or rubbed away after we are done repairing the dent. If paint is chipped, cracked or scraped, repainting or touch up is needed to prevent rust from forming. We can apply the touch up for you if you provide the paint, we can also refer you to a trusted, quality body shop if needed.

I am very much so satisfie with the repair."  Louise Meacoe, Toronto ON.
