What is PDR?
PDR, or paintless dent removal is the process where dents are removed without the need of removing the paint. PDR has quite a few advantages including:
- taking much less time for repair as compared to conventional repair
- cleaner and environmentally friendly
- preserve the original vehicle factory paint
- no cutting and spot welding of parts
- it is the preferred method of paintless dent removal by insurance companies and then if necessary going conventional
The main aim of paintless dent removal is to take out dents and preserve the paint to as close to an original finish as possible. Time-wise, this process of repair mostly takes 1 to 3 days but if parts are required or if conventional repairs required, then it may take longer or may require the vehicle to be re-booked in some situations.
Customer satisfaction in terms of quality checks is required.
