The truth about Paintless Dent Repair

Why all PDR repairs are not created equal.

Why do so few technicians work on privately owned vehicles? Every car dealer uses Paintless Dent Repair and can have several technicians. Every day new technicians leave school and hit the dealers looking for work. A car dealer does not have to have a Paintless Dent Repair look perfect. Since a prospective buyer does not know where the dents were on the vehicle, it is easy for them to overlook the signs of a poor repair.

The over population of new Paintless Dent Repair Technicians has created a mass of poorly repaired cars. New technicians will go to a car dealer and undercut the price of their competition to get work and the dealers are more then eager go with a lower price.

Since the technician’s pay is low, there is no incentive to make a quality repair and spend time on the job. They end up rushing the job, drilling holes to access most dents and never developing their skills to perfection. Most Paintless Dent Repair Technicians are out of business in less then a year.

Your eyes are important!
Since you know where your dent is, you are going to look right at the repair when it is done. This is the main reason a rookie never touches a private car! I have a friend who’s been in the business almost as long as I have, and he will not touch a private job because he only has done car dealer rush jobs that do not require perfection.

A poorly performed Paintless Dent Repair looks like a cluster of dimples in the paint due to harsh pushing on the steel. Sometimes, they can be subtle and go unnoticed by the untrained eye. Paintless Dent Repair was only designed to be about 93% perfect with proper training. Even the best body shop repair is not as good as the original finish and can be detected by a keen eye.

Unless your car is hit pretty hard, PDR repairs are usually undetectable.
Paintless dent repair is a skilled art that takes years to master, yet schools today only provide 4 weeks of instruction at best. This means that a tech must practice for years to get the skills needed to repair dents on cars that are privately owned.

A truly experienced technician with the right tools will have a shop or centralized location for making privately owned vehicle repairs. A mobile technician that has the time to get to all his clients does not have enough work and there is a reason for it. While a mobile repair may sound convenient, the lack of quality and experience in the work is not worth the risks. Weather conditions alone can hinder a mobile unit’s ability to make repairs on schedule. Plus, there are many situations where a dent needs a specialized tool or an electrical device to remove it. Organization of all the tools can be difficult in a mobile unit. Therefore, a new tech may drill a hole to get at the dent and could VOID YOUR RUST WARRANTEE!

I work strictly on private vehicles where the customer knows exactly where the dent was and wants it repaired perfect. I’ve been in business for 15 years and I also sell my own line of tools for the PDR trade. I fix dents on every car ranging from a KIA to a Bentley. I have experience in full paint and bodywork giving me the skills to take a car apart and put it back together. This skill allows me to get at dents that other techs can’t get to without making holes. I also have the materials to remove minor blemishes from the paint that caused the dent.
