One of the many services we offer is paintless dent repair, and in this article, we’ll be going over more about what this process entails so that you can decide if it’s right for you or not.

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

The first step in paintless dent repair is to assess the damage. Our team will examine your vehicle and identify the location and size of each and every dent, assessing each one to see if it can be effectively removed through this method. Most dents can be removed in this way, so the odds are more than good that we’ll be able to fix the ones on your car.

The next step in paintless dent repair is to gain access into the dent. This method typically requires our technicians to access the dent from the underside, which means that we often have to remove body panels, tail lights, or interior panels in order to clear a path to the spot in question.

Finally, we use specialized tools to carefully massage the dent from the underside, gradually molding the panel back into its original, smooth shape.
