When to choose PDR over a crash repairer to fix a dent

Have you had that annoying dent or scratch on your car bumper for months, maybe even years? Have you thought about fixing the dent but haven’t got around to it yet? Time goes on and years later the dent is still there. Sound familiar?

You’ll probably get motivated to fix the dent when you have to sell the car, but why wait till then so that someone else enjoys the fruits of your labour? There is no need to wait! Fixing dents and scratches is not as expensive as you might think.

Everyday we advise people on how to fix their dents and scratches, either with Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) or by taking it to the local crash repair.

When to use PDR over a normal crash repair service

We collaborate with many crash repair shops in both Adelaide and Brisbane and work together in the interest of the client’s car. Sometimes PDR is the solution to fix a dent or scratch, sometimes you need panels fixed or replaced by a crash repair. 

In summary:

  • We can remove serious hail damage on every panel of a car with PDR
  • We can also remove bumps and some scratches
  • Where the panel has been warped or disfigured, or if there are very large dents and scratches, you will need to go to a crash repairer
  • If your vehicle has been in a car accident, more than likely you will need your crash repairer as well.

Visit us first to assess the dent – we can guide you from there

You can pop into our workshop and we can advise you on the best outcome. You may be able to avoid a trip to the crash repair and unnecessary costs if the damage can be fixed with PDR.

PDR is a technique that fixes the dent from the inside out, using state-of-the-art equipment. We access the dent from the inside of the car and using a special light, we are able to determine the size and shape of the dent, which then helps us decide how and where to massage the dent from the inside out.

We have a Cosmetic Vehicle Repair Centre in Norwood, Adelaide that fixes dents, repairs bumpers and mags, does window tinting and details your car back to beautiful! We also have a workshop in Daisy Hill, Brisbane that fixes dents and hail damaged cars. 

To make it super easy for you, you can email us pictures of your dent or scratch and we will let you know if we can fix it or whether you need to go to a crash repairer. You can also call contact us on 1800 NO DENT.
