Top 10 Reasons to Choose PDR over a Conventional Body Shop Repair

with:  Paul Kordon, Dentmasters

There’ s no doubt that if you own and operate a vehicle you are going to experience a ding, dent, or even collision damage.  Ever since the creation of the automobile there has been a need to repair body damage after an accident.  Up until the refinement of Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) there were few options to repair auto body damage.  Many times those options included replacing parts and/or repainting the vehicle.  Advances in tools and techniques within the paintless dent removal industry have given highly skilled technicians the ability to push the boundaries of PDR and repair large and complex collision damage without the use of grinding, painting, body filler, or replacement parts. Rather than using these traditional methods of body repair, PDR technicians are able to slowly sculpt your car’s metal back to it’s original form with specialized tools, lights, and methods.

 Here are the Top 10 Reasons to choose PDR after your next parking lot mishap or minor accident:

  1. PDR allows you to maintain your superior factory paint
  2. PDR allows you to retain the superior factory parts which often are stamped or labeled with matching VIN numbers
  3. PDR helps to avoid a vehicle history report such as generated by CARFAX *
  4. PDR helps to retain true pre-accident value
  5. PDR helps to retain true pre-accident condition
  6. PDR offers the least invasive option for repairing body damage
  7. PDR offers a faster turn-around time
  8. PDR often results in a superior repair compared to conventional options **
  9. PDR has the potential to save you money in certain cases
  10. PDR is approved by dealers, body shops, service lanes, and insurance companies

Before you decide on who will repair your next ding or dent, make sure you exhaust the option of paintless dent repair. You may be surprised at what PDR can do for you.

*Information on CARFAX and their vehicle history data sources can be found at http://www.carfax.com/about/data_sources.cfx.

** We believe that body shops are essential to the auto industry.  The service they offer is important to our communities and we stand with them.  Many body shops employ the services of PDR technicians in order to offer their customers an opportunity for repairing damage without painting.  We in no way intend to diminish their value.
