Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)

Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as “paintless dent removal”, is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using paintless dent removal, however, usually if there is paint┬ádamage, paintless dent removal may be unsuitable.

The most common practical use for paintless dent removal is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. The techniques can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint.

The technology of paintless dent removal has been around for many years, and has become popularly adopted for such purposes as lease return, auction preparation, rental car maintenance, and increasingly, consumer vehicle repair. Consequently, consumer-level awareness of the techniques has increased in recent years E.g. The Hailstorm of July9th 2008 was a prime example where paintless dent removal was utilized to restore a vast number of hail damaged vehicles in Chatham-Kent Ontario.
