Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)

PDR is a method of repairing dents in a vehicle’s bodywork by pulling out the panel, meaning there is no need to fill or paint over the damage, or change a whole panel.  

PDR may be used on both aluminium and steel panels, as long as the paint surface is intact. Most commonly, we carry out PDR repairs as a result of low speed door dings, minor creases, large dents and even sometimes damage from hail!

The method can also be utilised to prepare a damaged panel for repainting by minimising the use of body filler. This technique is known as “push to paint.” Generally speaking, the shallower the dent, the greater the likelihood of paintless dent removal being a suitable option. Even dents several inches in diameter can be repaired by this method as long as the metal and paint are not stretched.
