Paintless Dent Repair
What is Paintless Dent Repair?
The Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) process removes dents from a vehicle’s exterior surface panels without disturbing the paint finish.
Because NO parts or panels have been replaced, there is no physical indication the dents were ever there, therefore, No negative CARFAX history reports. This is why paintless dent repair is 100% restoration.
Paintless Dent Repair is 100% restoration.

The PDR cost calculator.
Every repair is unique. Paintless dent repair cost depends on 3 key factors – the location, diameter, and number of dents per panel. A typical dent, like a door ding, will cost between $75 and $150 to repair. For dent repair caused by hail, we use a paintless dent repair cost matrix from State Farm. You can see this matrix by clicking here.
To estimate the cost of paintless dent repair, first count the amount of dents per panel using this worksheet and then use those numbers to plug into the State Farm cost matrix. Alternatively, you can try our online PDR cost calculator.
Please note, for hail damage you will need to file a claim with your insurance company and have an adjuster inspect your vehicle vehicle for a final assessment. Good news. We can take care of the entire process for you!

Paintless dent repair customer reviews.
I am not one to go find a FB page and leave a review… But this is a whole different situation. Never had an insurance or auto-related repair, go as smoothly as it did with Eric. He handled everything from calling my insurer to handling the damage estimate for me Took me to the rental car. Set it up for me, and even returned it for me. The last big surprise was when I arrived to pick up my truck. My truck was shining brighter than a diamond in a goats ass!

“No deductible and my car was out and looking good! Nice incentives for referrals and honest reviews. I have nothing bad to say about their service. Heath came to our residence, helped us make the claim, got everything scheduled, and helped with everything along the way. Took it in Friday, got it back Monday! A+ service for both my brother and I!”
Why do I need a second inspection?
On average, your assigned insurance adjuster typically misses 30% to even 50% of the dents caused by hailstones! They might even discourage you from getting the damage repaired because the cost to repair is less than your deductible.
2023 update: The pandemic has changed processes for nearly every business and for the better. Most insurance companies no longer require an adjuster to inspect your vehicle before you take it into a shop for repairs. All you need to do is give us a call and we will inspect your vehicle then submit our repair estimate directly to your insurance company. Some insurance companies will send an adjuster to our shop to look at the vehicle.
Will the dents come back with paintless dent repair?
Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as paintless dent removal, is an environmentally-friendly repair method that restores a vehicle’s body to factory-like condition. Paintless dent repair is a permanent repair. Metal has what is called “metal memory.” When the metal is dented, it ‘remembers’ their original shape. When a car panel is dented, the metal becomes stressed. To release that stress, a PDR technician can gently massage and push the dented metal, the metal returns back to its previous shape.
What can paintless dent repair fix?
The most common practical use for Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor creases, large dents and body line damage. The PDR method can also be used to prepare a damaged panel for repainting by minimizing the use of body filler, sanding, repainting, and other environmentally dangerous chemicals.
Is paintless dent repair covered by my insurance?
Yes. If you report the damage to your insurance company, most insurance companies will cover the cost to repair the damage as long as the paint has not been chipped, cracked, or separated from the metal. For dent repair that costs less than the deductible, such as a door ding, the out-of-pocket cost for a singular ding removal is usually less than $100.
