Paintless Dent Removal-Don’t Try this at Home

I love Google. Just type in anything you are curious about, any question, and you are served up thousands if not millions of results in an instant. It empowers us to figure all sorts of things out on our own via an abundance of YouTube videos, websites and tutorials. But when it comes to paintless dent removal, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. While it seems like a simple concept (there’s actually a 12 minute video “Paintless Dent Repair for Beginners”), it is a complex and painstaking process.

Proper paintless dent removal (PDR) requires expertise and finesse. The dent must be scrutinized at a variety of angles and bright light to determine the best strategy to remove it, and then additional scrutiny is needed to inspect the work and ensure that the result is flawless (can you say eye-strain?). In addition, a number of tools and special equipment are needed to ensure a beautiful outcome. It’s truly a combination of art and science.

There are independent PDR “specialists” out there that may offer the service at a reduced price, but be careful. They may not have the experience, training or equipment to get the job done right, and you have little recourse if you are not happy with their work. Worse, you could end up with a bumpy area where you dent once was because they tapped at it from all angles it instead of gently smoothing out the dent.
