We all know what happens when there’s a big bada boom. Calculators are brought out, seemingly endless forms are filled out, rental cars are deployed, and all the auto body technicians go to work, pulling out the big guns to rescue your vehicle from the brink of oblivion.
But what about the little dings? The ones that bruise your ego and patience more than your car? That’s where this neat technique called PDR comes in. Minor dent repair cost is significantly cheaper than full-on auto body work and – yeah, we have to admit – it’s pretty cool.
You perked right up when you heard “cheaper” didn’t you? But how do you know if it’s the right tactic for your car’s current injuries? Glad you asked. Here’s the thing – we’re experts in collision repair, but this is something different. When we talk about Paintless Dent Repair (PDR), it’s not for the kind of accident that typically brings you to our front door. It’s for the little things.
PDR employs a number of very cool, very scientific techniques that can inexpensively repair damage from day-to-day foibles like parking lot dings and dents from car doors or runaway shopping carts. It can even fix up some of those shallow craters left behind in the wake of unpredictable Kansas storms. Essentially, for any vehicular injury that doesn’t fold metal or require paint to repair, PDR might be the best choice for you.
Think of it like a soothing massage for your car. PDR technicians are trained to relieve and release the minor knots and bumps that your car acquires over time. And many times, this technique can be offered as a same-day service to get your vehicle back on the road and looking as good as new in no time. Sounds like magic? Maybe! But it’s just one more tool in the mighty arsenal of a well-trained auto body technician.
On top of all that, PDR maintains your car’s value. If you’re dreading the call to your insurance company to discuss getting rid of that elbow-shaped reminder of a late night out with Loud Cousin Larry, fret no more. If PDR is right for you and your vehicle, we can restore the body of your car without affecting your factory paint finish or the resale value of your car.
So, how much can you save? The easy answer is “a lot,” but the first step is to give us a call or use our online cost estimator to get started. Whether it’s a door ding, hail dents or some other unsightly cosmetic damage, PDR might be the cost-saving option you’re looking for to restore your car to its former glory. Now just try to stay away from any BIG bada booms.
