What is Paintless Dent Removal?

Paintless dent removal and dent repair, is the art of using special tools to remove minor dents, creases, and door dings by getting behind the damage and meticulously pushing the metal back until the damaged area is undetectable.

What type of damage is repairable by Pantless Dent Removal?

Paintless Dent Removal works great on those little bothersome eyesores such as door dings, minor dents, and creases. And even dents caused by runaway shopping carts, and the occasional flying golf ball and baseball. Chances are, "If you can ding it, we probably can repair it."

Is there any damage Paintless Dent Removal does not repair?

Paintless Dent Removal works on virtually all panels of a vehicle, except in the following situations:

1) If the damage is within 1" to 2" of the edge of a door, fender, hood, quarter panel, trunk, or roof, Paintless Dent Removal probably will not work 100%. These areas contain "double metal," which limits airspace and tool accessibility to remove the damage completely.

2) If there is cracked, fractured, or missing paint at the core of the damage or dent, Paintless Dent Removal will not work 100%.

3) Paintless Dent Removal will not work on pillar panels, rocker panels, plastic or metal bumpers.
