What Is Paintless Dent Repair?

A blog about dent repair, really? That's right, we're on a mission to raise awareness about the simplicity of Paintless Dent Repair.


PDR is the art of repairing dents to the body of a vehicle by meticulously mending the metal back into shape.


The highly skilled technicians behind this trade have ditched all of the out-dated repair methods like grinding, sanding, using fillers, drilling holes and as the name suggests, without painting.

Benefits of Mobile Dent Repair

PDR is known its long lists of benefits like costing pennies compared to a body shop and repairs are completed same day without reporting to CarFax.


Now add the fact that you don't have to leave your home or interrupt your busy schedule and the convenience factor goes through the roof. This makes mobile dent repair the obvious choice for most.


It's no secret that convenience and instant gratification are taking over but what about quality and customer service? When deciding between a PDR shop and a mobile dent removal service you'll typically be sacrificing quality from mobile techs and convenience from the shops.


Dents Dings and Things has combined the highest quality dent repairs with unbeatable customer service, packing it all into an affordable mobile service, requiring nothing more than a call or text from you.

Body Shop vs. Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair or dent removal, often referred to as PDR, is the repair method of choice for vehicle owners, rental companies, dealerships and even traditional body shops; but why is that? PDR has many advantages some of which include:


-No Car-Fax Reporting

-Maintains Original Parts and Paint

-Most Affordable Method of Repair

-Increased Resale Value

-Timely Repairs; Often Same Day


There are many aspects to consider when determining if auto body damage qualifies for painless dent removal. The first might seem obvious; is the paint in the damaged area disturbed, scratched or chipped? If so, you should still consult with a PDR technician before having anyone work on your vehicle. The technician may be able to save you quite a bit by removing the dent with PDR. Then if you still believe it should be painted, most have a trusted paint shop to refer you to. Even though you may be paying two bills, the overall cost can be significantly lower. This factor is typically left to the discretion of the vehicle owner and their preference.

Identify the Type of Dents or Damages

Something else to look for; does the panel or bumper have any holes, tears, or stretched deformations of metal? Highly skilled PDR technicians can sometimes mend and manipulate stretched or creased metal back into its original form. Cracks, holes, and tears are a different story, usually requiring more traditional forms of auto body reconditioning. These methods could include bonding, sanding, and painting although a brand new part could also be the best option.


We could go on and on but the final consideration we’ll touch on: was the damage caused by another stationary vehicle or object or was it the result of a moving collision? Dents and dings caused by stationary objects are always more likely to qualify for paintless dent repair, but with the right skills and experience your technician can repair dents caused by low impact, parking lot accidents and fender benders as well.


With so many things to think about, we always recommend letting a technician take a look before having any work done to your vehicle. Are you considering paintless dent removal for your auto body dents and dings? Give us a call or send a few photos, Mike will gladly take a look to determine if PDR is right for you. If you would like to send us photos you may do so here and receive 10% off your mobile dent repair.

Trust Your Technician

Chances are you have plenty of options for dent repair technicians to complete the repair and if you’re reading this we can only assume your vehicle is important to you. It’s of utmost importance to research the company and read their Google and Yelp reviews before scheduling any service. Working in the industry, we hear of inexperienced mobile technicians biting off more than they can chew quite often, leaving you with a butchered, more expensive repair.


What could be worst than inexperienced techs? Scammers that haven't repaired a dent in their life! As you can see in the video below; these scammers are known to lurk in parking lots or at stop lights and prey on unsuspecting victims. They often cause the dent themselves (if there isn't one already) and will walk up as you approach your vehicle.


Then comes the pitch; they'll have some story along the lines of 'I watched someone cause this dent and leave so I decided to wait for you. I actually own a dent repair business and wanted to help you out, I could come by today or tomorrow for the repair and you'll never know the dent was there.'

Signs of a Dent Repair Scammer

There is also another variation of these dent repair scams, the original being a poser with no tools or dent repair experience at all and the other will seem like legitimate PDR technicians who will (attempt to) repair the dent that they caused to begin with. These con-artists are creating their own work by purposely denting the vehicle while you're inside shopping only to then offer you a 'discount' for paintless dent removal.


If you are considering mobile dent repair for your ride here are a few red flags to be on the lookout for:


- If the technician approaches you; it is our suggestion to do more research than normal on the company in question.


- If a quick Google search doesn't fill up the first page of results with information about their business, consider another.


- If they ask for payment before completing the repair; never pay until you are satisfied with the results.


- If the quoted price on the day of repair increases significantly; get a second opinion.


We are honored to showcase our customer reviews, before and after photos, and vast knowledge of the trade on our website and business profiles. Do your due diligence and we’re sure you’ll be confident in leaving all of your dent repair needs to the pros at Dents Dings and Things. Our highly trained, master technicians live for seeing the smiles on customers' faces when they first notice their dents have disappeared.
