Our PDR Process

How does paintless dent repair work? Paintless dent repair involves carefully repairing minor dents & dings with our having to add or remove paint or replace auto parts. If you have ever heard the term "popping out the dent", this is a commonly used paintless dent repair term. At Courtesy Collision Centers, our team of certified body shop experts often use this technique when dealing with outer panel strikes or indentations that haven’t scratched the paint or stripped the paint from the vehicle. Our team of estimators can typically tell in their estimation process if paintless dent repair for your vehicle is a option. Many factors go into this decision, such as the location of the damage, along with how severe the damage is. Our OEM certifications help us determine the best route to get your car back to factory specs for those brands, which you won't find in many other auto body shops. For example, if the dent is on the edge of a door panel or on the edge the hood, paintless dent repair may not be the best solution, as a new hood or door may be the only way to get the vehicle back up to factory standards. This is also the same if there is damage to the paint. Should traditional dent repair be required, no worries. With our certifications, our body shops only uses factory paint and parts, along with the techniques that are used when the vehicle is originally built.

What are ways to determine how to fix a dent?

Not all dents & dings need traditional dent repair...which can be both time consuming & more expensive. If your vehicle has hail damage, door dings and other small mishaps that may be minor, repair may not be as expensive as you think. With paintless dent repair, our certified body shop experts don't touch the vehicle's paint. This process is quicker, less costly, and very simple, in the grand scheme of things. Step one in paintless dent repair is for our technicians access the back of the dent. This will allow the technician to determine the proper tools needed for dent removal. In many cases, you will have a dent that is on the crease of a fender, door, bumper or quarter panel, so it's important to ensure that the body can be restored without an issue. Checking the back of the dent also allows the technician a view of both sides of the dent to know where to apply the pressure accordingly while manipulating the dent. The location of applied pressure is important because this is how you correctly restore the dent back to its previous shape, aligning the body part to the correct factory specifications.
