What is Dent Repair

Courtesy Collision offers paintless dent repair, but there are times in which traditional dent repair is required in order to fix the vehicle damage correctly. Since our brand certified teams restore the vehicle to proper factory specs, traditional dent repair can be required when the metal or aluminum of your vehicle is stretched upon impact, if the paint is scratched/damaged if the dent is too deep to pull out or if the impact was in a location where paintless dent repair will not restore the vehicle properly. To repair a severe dent, our technicians pull out the damaged area until it is level with the original surface and is aligned properly. In some cases, the area may be crushed beyond repair and a new part, like a bumper or fender, may be necessary. If that is the case, don't worry. Our in house, OEM certified paint team, has all of the correct tools, factory paints and genuine OEM parts you won't find at many other body shops...and the you can tell with the results.

So when is traditional dent repair is required? Typically, traditional dent repair techniques will be used when there is a puncture to the body or the metal of your vehicle is stretched upon impact. It will also be needed if the dent is too deep to extract. This type of repair is also appropriate when extensive paint damage from the impact exists, which includes chips or deep scratches. To repair a severely scraped dent, our technicians pull out the crushed area until it is level with the original surface. In some cases, this may even require replacing the damaged areas. Once our technicians achieve an ideal surface and smooth out the affected area, a computerized paint-matching system matches your new paint to the vehicle’s original color.
