No matter how careful you try to be in your car, dents are unfortunately unavoidable. They happen whether it’s a small dent or a larger, much more noticeable ding. Sometimes another car bumps into yours, or a door gets opened into your car in a parking lot. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to remove most dents with an effective and convenient method called paintless dent repair! Here at the Dent Shop, we’re pros at PDR and here are to bust any myths that may have you thinking that paintless dent repair won’t work for you.
One of the biggest myths around is that you should try doing paintless dent repair yourself. While the process is simple for our qualified technicians, it isn’t something you should attempt on your own. Oftentimes, people cause even more damage trying to fix dents themselves and make it harder for professionals to seamlessly fix what’s already happened. Once the factory paint job gets damaged, the option for PDR is eliminated, so always let us help before you try to DIY.
Another myth is that your insurance company can’t cover PDR. Most insurance companies prefer this method because it’s a cheaper option. Fenders and bumpers are especially common locations for dents, and your insurance company will add their share to the total cost of your services.
Third on the list is that paintless dent repair can’t restore your vehicle to its previous value. Filing a claim with your insurance often means it gets added to the official CARFAX report and can decrease the value. PDR is totally different! The process involves massaging the dents out of your vehicle, essentially reversing it completely.
Finally, many people assume that any company can do PDR. Many may claim that they can, but you’ll want to ensure that they actually specialize in this process! Otherwise, they could cause more damage to your vehicle rather than repair it.
