Insurance companies approve and prefer the King of the Ding paintless dent repair process

Paintless dent repair or PDR has come a long way since it's infancy in the early 1990's. The process has evolved from repairing very small dents on flat sheet metal to very large dents and body line or design features. This evolution is due to ongoing training and education to include advancement in technology. In the last decade Insurance providers have come to embraced the process as the most effective method of repairing minor dents, door dings and hail damage. Conventional body shops have also come to accept and respect the process as a viable alternative method of repairing light hits and hail damage. Most body shops bring in outside paintless dent repair companies like ours to execute paintless dent repairs for vehicles damage by hail or minor door dings versus hiring and training there own employees. Body shops have discovered that there is an extreme learning curve to produce and top notch paintless dent repair technician and choose to forgo that process by hiring a professional paintless dent repair company like ours.

The general public however, is not as aware of the benefits and limitations of the PDR process. So we have included a few links below to aid in educating the public on the paintless dent repair process.

You have the right to choose where you vehicle is repaired. If your insurance company steers you to one of there "preferred" facilities it my not be a shop that is consistently producing the best repairs. It's a good idea to  contact the Better Business Bureau or get referrals from friends. Reading reviews online will also reveal which shop is producing the best repairs. Don't forget to ask the shop that you choose how PDR works and how they access hard to reach areas to make the repair. The best method is to pull the dent from the outside rather than drilling holes to access the dent from beneath the panel in those hard to reach areas.
