What is better for hail damage? Body Shop vs. Paintless Dent Repair?
By The Dent Company
updated about 1 month ago
For auto hail damage, Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is the preferred method for dent removal. Protecting and preserving the factory paint is the main advantage of Paintless Dent Repair. Dents are gently maneuvered back into place using specialized tools by highly trained PDR technicians.
Other advantages of Paintless Dent Repair over a body shop include:
- Much faster repair
- Less expensive
- No cutting, grinding or filling and no painting.
- Vehicle value retention. The vehicle remains 100% original.
- We'll knock $500 off your deductible.
When the hail damage exceeds the limitations of PDR, a body shop becomes necessary. Cracked/chipped paint or severe panel damage will require a body shop on those areas. We take a "PDR First" approach to all auto body repairs. We use PDR on all areas of the vehicle first before using conventional body shop methods. Another thing to consider is the cost of repairs for a body shop could "Total" your vehicle where it may be saved with PDR.
