7 Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Paintless Dent Repair
Last Updated: February 1, 2023
Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a cost-effective and efficient solution for repairing small dents and dings on your vehicle. However, not all dents are eligible for PDR and not all technicians have the necessary skills to perform the repair. To ensure that you receive a high-quality repair and to avoid any potential issues, it's important to ask a few questions before getting PDR for your vehicle.
Here are seven questions to consider before getting paintless dent repair:
- Is the dent eligible for PDR?
PDR is most effective for small dents and dings that are not near the edge of a panel or close to creases in the metal. Ask the technician to examine the dent and confirm that it can be repaired using PDR techniques.
- How experienced is the technician?
PDR is a skilled craft that requires years of training and experience to master. Ask about the technician's background and how long they have been performing PDR. This will help you assess their level of expertise and determine if they are qualified to perform the repair. Our most experienced technician has been involved in the PDR industry for over 25 years!
- What is the repair process?
Ask the technician to explain the steps they will take to repair the dent and how they will ensure that the repair is seamless and undetectable. Understanding the repair process will help you know what to expect and help you determine if the technician is using the right techniques to repair your vehicle.

- Can you see examples of the technician's work?
Ask to see photos or videos of the technician's previous work to get a sense of their skill level and the quality of their repairs.
