Body & Wheel Repair

Dent Removal

Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a highly skilled process in which dents and creases are removed from your car.

Working from behind the panel specially designed tools are used to slowly massage the metal back to its original condition.

The main benefits are:
  • more cost effective than taking using a bodyshop
  • no filler or paint is used
  • we travel to you

Minor dents (golf ball to tennis ball size) and creases (1-6 inches) take on average between 30-45 minutes and can normally be repaired to perfection.

Major dents (football size) and creases (7-24inches) usually take between 1-2 hours and where as most can be repaired to perfection the most severe can be repaired so the untrained eye would not notice.
