Is it possible to remove large dents with Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?

There are a few questions I am often asked about PDR.

  • Can paintless dent repair remove large dents?
  • Can you repair a crease with paintless dent removal?
  • Can dents in a body line be removed paintless?

These are some common questions and misconceptions about PDR. With the new advancements and techniques today, all of these are possible. There is no longer a need to send your car off to the body shop for days to have the costly method of having them repaired and painted.

In this video you will be able to see all three of these types of dents are indeed possible.

This dent in the fender of the Toyota Sienna minivan was a large dent with a crease right through the body line. My customer from Coon Rapids MN had a small collision that cause the damage to the fender.
Paintless Dent Removal was the best method to use for this repair.

There are a few things you should know before taking you car in for a hail damage estimate. Whether you are taking it to the insurance company or a dent repair shop for the hail dent estimate.

First would be to have the exterior of your car clean and dry. This is so that the person looking at your vehicle will not miss any of the hail dents or damage to the panels. If your car is dirty, hail dents and other damage may not be noticed. This will cause a need to supplement the insurance company for the additional dent repairs needed, delaying the time needed for hail damage repair to your car.

Second, in what conditions is your vehicle being looked at? If your hail damaged vehicle is being estimated outside in the sun, you will not be able to see all of the hail dents. In order to see all the dents, the car should be in the shade or it would be best to be inside. A proper reflection is also needed to see all the hail dents. * See the picture below * A proper reflection and lighting will help with the hail damage estimate.

Third, be sure to know that the dent repair shop is experienced with hail damage estimating. They should know the “limits” of what can be repaired with paintless dent repair. They should also know what to look for if the vehicle has had other major body repairs. If your car has had previously been repaired and painted with conventional auto body repair, paintless dent repair may not be able to be used on those damaged panels. They should be able to look for damage to the paint from the hail. If the hail dent falls on the edge of a panel, it may have put a stress crack in the paint. That panel then would need to be repainted.

Be sure that the insurance company or repair shop explains the estimate to you. You should know what repairs are being done to your vehicle.
