Owning a vehicle is not just a necessity for the average consumer; it provides a considerable amount of joy and allows us to enjoy life on a daily basis. Many of us are cautious drivers who avoid collisions and the dents, dings, and abrasions that occur. That said, they still occur from time to time, much to our dismay. In the past, having dents repaired meant leaving your vehicle at a body shop for a considerable length of time, having the dents pounded out, and then having the affected area painted over with a color scheme that may or may not match the original paint job. Well, now there’s a much better way to go about this process. Welcome to the world of paintless dent repair!
What is PDR?
As we mentioned before, the old method of having dents removed was a lengthy one. Paintless dent repair (PDR) cuts down the time by an incredible amount. A process that once took days and maybe even weeks can be done in a matter of hours, and sometimes even less than that. Rather than tackle the dent head-on like a traditional body shop, a PDR technician removes the exterior panels of the vehicle and utilizes special tools to tackle the problem from behind. This means that your vehicle’s paint job remains intact, and you don’t have to worry about warranties being voided or your exterior paint job being compromised in any way.
Better for the Environment
In recent years, the entire automotive industry has gone to great lengths to be more environmentally responsible and reduce the carbon footprint left each and every year. PDR repairs dents without using primer, paint, and other chemicals that are used by a traditional body shop. This means that there’s no danger of runoff that comes into contact with the environment, and there’s also no risk in the form of the technicians being harmed. Because it uses only a few specially constructed tools and nothing more, there’s also a lot less waste going to landfills.
