Common Dent Removal Questions

Can I pull my dent out myself?

Although the dent may seem small and easy to pull, the proper tools and the proper technique is necessary to prevent further damage to your car. If you want your car looking as new as possible, it is not advised to try removing the dent yourself.

Can all dents be removed?

The simple answer is, ‘no.’ First of all, not every dent can be easily accessed. Also, some areas of a vehicle, such as panel edges are two to three times thicker than other areas of your vehicle and dent removal is nearly impossible.

Additionally, sometimes the dent has caused a crack or chip in your paint and trying to remove it will just cause more damage. Sometimes it is best to use a bit of touchup paint on these to prevent spreading or rust. Then, just leave it be.

Will my paint be damaged?

No. Once we determine that a dent is fixable, there will be no paint damage. Today’s factory paints are manufactured to be very flexible and will not be damaged in any way by our process. In fact, paintless dent removal is the only method out there that will keep your factory paint intact.

There are cheap dent removal kits online. Why can’t I use those?

Remember that these sellers are in business to make money by selling you their product. Also, many of these kits use the glue method of repair which takes years of training to perfect. We suggest that you stay clear of these kits and trust professionals to do the job.

I’ve seen videos showing how you can use a plunger to pull out a dent. Can I do that?

Firstly, a plunger will likely have too large of a circumference to pull your dent properly. In fact, you may even cause a larger-sized problem if you try using a plunger. Today’s vehicles are made using thinner steel than ever before, and the wrong amount of pressure can cause additional problems. We have varying sized pullers that will fit your dent perfectly and give you the most professional job.

How long will it take to repair my dent?

Of course, the major factor here is how many dents you need to have repaired. It will also depend on where and how large they are. Smaller dings can take as little as thirty minutes each to complete, whereas more complex dents can take from one to three hours to finish properly.

Can Paintless Dent Removal fix hail damage?

Yes, it can. In fact, PDR is the preferred method of repair with insurance companies when it comes to hail damage repair. It is preferred because it is faster and more cost-effective than conventional repair. It also helps maintain the value of your vehicle.
