What is Paintless Dent Removal?


The process of PDR (Paintless Dent Removal) is the highly-skilled process of repairing minor dents, dings and creases from auto body panels. Provided the paint has not been cracked the factory paint finish will be undamaged.

How is it done?

Unlike panel beaters, paintless dent removal does not require fibreglass, spray painting, sanding or for your car to be left at a panelbeater for any length of time. In most cases we can repair your car at your place.

Specialist PDR tools are used to push or massage the metal back into its original shape from behind the dent. Depending on the location of the dent, panels are accessed through window openings or by removing tail lights, inner trims, roof linings and guard liners. Difficult to access dents may be repaired with a specialised glue-pulling technique.
