What is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a state-of-the-art method for removing dents, scuffs, scratches and more which doesn’t use paint or filler. This technique doesn’t impact any existing paint. We use specially designed steel rods to massage the damaged area of your vehicle from behind the damaged panel. With this technique, we can push out any dents for total bodywork restoration. PDR can be used on all vehicles where the car bodywork has dents and scuffs, but where the paint isn’t damaged.

How is Paintless Dent Removal done?

Our process for Paintless Dent Removal is simple and effective, delivering quality every single time. Here’s how the process for PDR is done…

  1. Assessment

Our skilled technicians will assess the extent of the damage to your vehicle’s bodywork to determine if PDR is a suitable repair method. PDR is most effective for shallow dents with no damage to the paint surface, such as those caused by hail, minor collisions, or door dings.

  1. Access

We will gain access to the reverse side of the dent, either through existing openings in the bodywork or by removing interior panels or trim pieces.

  1. Manipulation

Using specialised tools, we will carefully massage and push on the underside of the dent, gradually manipulating the metal back into its original shape. This process requires precision and skill to avoid causing further damage to the paint or surrounding areas.

  1. Visual Inspection

Throughout the restoration process, we will continually check the progress and will adjusts our techniques as needed to ensure the desired results are achieved.

  1. Final Inspection

Once we have successfully removed the dent, we will conduct a final inspection to ensure that the repair meets quality standards and that the affected area matches the surrounding bodywork seamlessly.

  1. Completion

With your vehicle’s bodywork fully restored, we will reinstalls any removed interior panels or trim pieces and return your vehicle to you.
