PDR has been around for many years, even before most of you were born. And even before dent technicians had tools to remove dents from panels car manufactures were removing dents from new vehicles on the assembly line with spoons. Paintless Dent Removal is exactly what the term refers to, removing dents and dings from your vehicle without the need for re-painting. You want to keep the factory finish of the car and thus keeping the value. Once you do body shop repairs and repaint, the vehicles value lowers as soon as it’s repainted or panels replaced or filler used.

Specialized tools and lights are necessary to do this work and a highly trained technician. Dent removal tools are specially designed and shaped for different parts of vehicles, different types of dents.
