What Is Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?
Paintless dent removal, also known as paintless dent repair or PDR for short, is a highly skilled method of auto body repair used to remove minor dents, dings, and hail damage from the panels of an automobile without damaging the existing paint or finish. The process is also used to repair larger dents and creases, as well as minor collision damage. Using special tools and lights, a PDR technician carefully applies pressure to the underside of a damaged panel by making a series of gradual pushes, slowly releasing the tension created by the dent and allowing the metal to relax back to its original stamped shape. When considering repair options, there are a number of benefits to using paintless dent removal. Vehicle hail repairs, in particular, performed with paintless dent removal are much less expensive than auto body shop hail repair methods, and because there's no sanding, painting, or replacing panels, PDR dent repair is also much faster. In fact, many hail damaged vehicles can be repaired with Paintless Dent Removal in only 1-2 days, compared to average repair times of about 3 weeks at most auto body shops. In addition, Paintless Dent Removal does not require the use of any body fillers, harsh chemicals or solvents, making it a completely Earth friendly process, unlike auto body shop repairs which release harmful emissions into the environment. Best of all, since there's no CarFax data created, and because all of the vehicle's factory warranties are maintained, using Paintless Dent Removal keeps your car's resale value as high as possible. Considering all of these, plus Paintless Dent Removal's many other advantages, it is no surprise that PDR has become the preferred method of auto dent repair for insurance companies, dealerships, manufacturers, and consumers all over the world.

Since there are no panels being replaced or refinished, the cost of Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) service is much cheaper than conventional body shop dent repair methods. When you consider that PDR dent repairs are usually performed in a fraction of the time needed by a body shop, the process's value increases even further. The cost of PDR dent repair can sometimes vary by location, but is almost always based on severity of the damage. If it's a small dent or minor door ding, you should expect to pay about $50 per dent. However on more difficult to repair damage, such as a crease or a dented body line, you can expect an average cost of around $200 per dent. For hail repairs, PDR cost is calculated using a hail pricing chart, or matrix, which assigns prices to each panel based on the average dent size, referenced by coins, along with the numerical range most closely matching the total number of dents on the panel. For example, the dent count on a hood might be 45 quarters, as in a total of 45 dents with an average size of a U.S. $0.25 coin (about an inch). Additionally, any dents on a panel in excess of half dollar size, or about 1 1/2", are known as "Over-Sized Dents" and are calculated at a cost of $40-$50 per dent on most PDR dent repair hail pricing charts. Historically, most auto body panels have been made from steel, but today many manufacturer's have started to use lighter alloys such as aluminum in their cars. Aluminum in particular is much more difficult to repair than steel, thus these panels are given a 25% markup on almost all PDR Dent Repair Matrixes. As you can see, the cost of PDR dent repair service can vary widely from vehicle to vehicle, especially with hail damage. For this reason we have created a free online Instant PDR Dent Repair Cost Calculator to help you get at least some idea about the cost of having dent repair performed on your vehicle. While its not intended to take the place of a proper estimate from a reputable repair shop, the Instant PDR Dent Repair Cost Calculator will help you decide if a repair cost exceeds your insurance deductible or would be worth filing a claim over.
