About Paintless Dent Repair
What is Paintless Dent Removal
Paintless dent removal is an innovative technique that aims to remove dents wherever possible restoring the original paint on your vehicle. Most insurance companies now require a PDR quotation quote and we work with insurance companies regardless to take the stress and confusion off you.
There are two main types of techniques – pushing dents from behind the panel or glue pulling from the outside. Any vehicle less than 10 years old are at a low risk of paint issues due to the industry standards and warranty of the factory paint.
Once vehicles are older than 10 years, the paint being cracked particularly due to glue pulling becomes a possibility. More often you hear “I might crack the paint”. ‘Push to paint’ (PTP) on the quotation becomes a necessity. The requirement of painting the panel becomes necessary and annotated on the quotation for the insurance company. Of course hail cracking the paint automatically requires a PTP annotation applied to the quotation.
Of course in the private quote situation, a decision has to be made whether the consumer wishes to proceed. For example if the vehicle was to be painted the repairer decided whether nor not to “risk it”. The PDR technician may refuse to do the repair because of the risk of cracking based on the paint condition. Please kindly accept their refusal based on experience and to avoid further issues.
Paintless Dent Repair is Environmentally Friendly
Paintless Dent Repair uses very little in the way of chemicals except to perhaps clean glue off the paint and a little for buffing or cut and polish procedures. This makes this technique very environmentally friendly. In 2022, the paintless dent repair now includes environmentally friendly spray painting and panel beating under one roof with no need to outsource!

Dent Repair Cost -> Repair Map Locations
The most asked question by customers is the cost of hail dent repair, trolley dents or door dints. The industry standard for pricing of that first standard dent varies from $80 to $130. Factors influencing pricing depend on:
- size of the dent or dents
- depth of the dent or dents – one deep slightly stretched dent may even be quoted
- number of dents – the more dents to be fixed in that visit sees a rapid drop in per price of the dent
- complexity of the dent or dents including creases or folds
- expected quality and what people are wanting to pay just so they don’t see the annoying dent as compared to a person who is extremely fussy and keep their vehicle extremely immaculate
- time to do the dent or dents
- whether paint needs to be maintained (ie panel will be resprayed regardless so being careful not to crack the paint is no longer an issue)
- removal and replacement and access to the dents (often luxury cars have different standard removal and replacement of part as compared to the standard Japanese and Australian made vehicles lending to varying times)
- how far the PDR technician must travel to and from home to repair the vehicle or if you drop the car to them instead
- urgency such as quick sales or return of damaged rental vehicles
