When it comes to determining whether your car’s dents, dings or hail damage qualify for repairs through PDR, you can follow these simple steps to get your answer.

Benefits of PDR from a Professional

A professional certified PDR technician that uses PDR techniques to repair your car will give you a better result than a traditional dent repair in every aspect of the process. The results and benefits of PDR are incredible when compared to traditional dent repair, especially if The Dent Guy is on the job.

Here are the main reasons why.

  • Save Time

PDR is much faster than traditional dent repair. Instead of waiting for days for repaint and dry body parts reassembly in traditional dent repair, PDR can repair your dents within hours on the same day. There is no filler, repainting or reassembly involved with PDR.

  • Save Money

Because you do not spend extra on materials like fillers and paint, you save money with PDR. It is way more inexpensive than traditional dent repair because you are only paying for the skill set of a certified PDR technician.

  • Save Paperwork

You can forget about insurance paperwork with PDR. The low costs of PDR mean that you can pay out of pocket and never worry about filing reports with your insurer. Once The Dent Guy is done repairing your car’s dents, no insurer or expert will be able to tell the difference.

  • Save Resale Value

This is our favorite benefit of using PDR over traditional or any other dent repair method. Since PDR does not scrape or repaint your car’s body part, you save a ton of resale value. PDR is mostly restoring your car to its original form, without tampering with the original paint coat – saving its resale value.
