The smallest blemish on your vehicle can stick out like a sore thumb, ruining its look and resale value. But repainting your whole car to fix one dent is expensive and time consuming. What’s the solution?
For many people, it’s PDR (paintless dent removal). For dings and small dents, it’s your best bet for restoring your vehicle.
1. What Is PDR?
Paintless dent removal is exactly what it sounds like. It’s done through a number of different techniques that remove dents in your car’s body without requiring sanding or repainting. Instead, it uses a combination of unique tools and techniques to “pop” a dent back into place.
In our experience, customers like PDR because it offers them quicker turnaround times and lower repair costs.

2. What Types of Dents Can It Fix?
Small dings and dents that don’t scratch through the paint are typically not problem. And dents from hail damage, door dings, and minor fender benders can often be pushed out using PDR too. For the most part, any size or shape of dent can be fixed so long as it isn’t too sharp and doesn’t include paint damage.
3. What Types of Dents Can’t It Fix?
Unfortunately, PDR isn’t a all-cure method for every dent. Not all dents can be fixed with PDR, and that’s important to realize so that you don’t visit your service center with false expectations. So, what can’t be fixed by PDR?
- Dents with paint damage
- Sharp or pointed dents
- Deep dents
4. Can I Do PDR Myself?
You may have seen blogs pop up in Google that show you the necessary tools and techniques for DIY paintless dent removal. And some tool manufacturer’s offer kits so that anyone can do it themselves at home. But remember: Just because the tools are there doesn’t mean they’re good or that you’ll know how to use them.
If you don’t know how to remove dents, there’s the real possibility that you could further damage your vehicle. And more damage means more money repairing it.
5. Who Does Paintless Dent Removal?
A great rule of them when it comes to your car or truck is this: When it comes to the integrity of your vehicle, it’s better to be safe than sorry. So, just because you can doesn’t necessarily mean you should. If you have a dent that you need repaired, call a professional and get it done right.
