What is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless dent repair is a dent removal technique that uses specialised PDR tools to massage dents out from behind your vehicle’s paint.

Unlike with panel-beating techniques, PDR enables us to remove car dents without having to remove the damaged car panel, fill the dents or re-spray the affected area.

But how do you tell whether your car’s dents can be removed using PDR?

What to look for when thinking about using PDR?

Below are 3 quick and easy things to look for when assessing your vehicle’s dents.


  • - Make sure your car’s paintwork is still intact and not damaged.
  • - The dent should not be on a body line of your car.
  • - Furthermore, the dent should not be on the edge of any panel.


If the damage to your car adheres to the above-mentioned requirements, it is suitable for PDR!

Things to look for when assessing Paintless Dent Removal Companies

There are a few things to look for when deciding what PDR company to use.

PDR demands highly skilled expertise and therefore should only be done by certified paintless dent removal technicians.

The company should be accredited and must have the necessary documentation to support it.

We advise that you always read their reviews, what better way to find out about the quality of work than by reading other people’s experiences?
