PDR & Hail Damage

Scratch, PDR & Hail Damage Repairs – Paintless Dent Removal

What is PDR?

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR), in short, is a car massage. Working from behind the panel, Our mobile technicians use specially designed tools to massage the metal back to its original shape. Being much quicker and less expensive than traditional panel beating methods, PDR has revolutionised minor panel repairs. Major insurance companies now rely upon PDR to be the preferred method of repair of hail damage.

Assessment and Pricing

Size of damage

Generally, flat dents up to the size of an apple can be removed without too much trouble. Larger dents which are shallow can also be removed.

Sharpness of damage

With sharpness comes metal stretch and with stretch comes the difficulty of manipulating the metal to return to its original position. Rounded dents caused by hail for example, are easier to repair and makes paintless panel beating a viable option.

Location of damage

As PDR is carried out from the rear of the dent we require access to that point of the car. Access can, in a minority of cases, be restricted by such things as side intrusion bars, double metal skin and air bags.
