Can Any Dents Be Fixed With PDR?
Although Paintless Dent Repair is very versatile, it cannot be used on all types of dents. If the paint is cracked or there is a cave-in at the edge of a panel, it is unlikely that your car can be repaired using Paintless Dent Repair. Our qualified technicians will review your vehicle and provide you with a written estimate for all repairs, whether they can use Paintless Dent Repair or your vehicle needs more extensive, traditional repairs.
