On Long Island NY and surrounding areas, paintless dent repair or paintless dent removal (PDR) is a relatively unknown art. As we build a client base in this area, we hope that the majority of people discovering this wonderful art is through the services of Dent Doctor Long Island.
First off, What is PDR?
PDR is the artform in which a highly trained technician uses specially designed tools to gently massage a dent out slowly from underneath a car’s metal surface. 100 pushes may be required for a dent the size of a nickel to be removed. The correct placement and pressure is crucial to push a dent out. The type of metal and access available will determine the difficulty and price of a dent removal.
Why should you choose a PDR technician over a paint and body shop?
For Various reasons:
Once paint is put on a vehicle that was not from the factory, the value of that vehicle depreciates substantially.
PDR will take hours while a body shop will take days.
PDR is typically 1/4 to 1/2 of what a body shop charges.
So, not only are you saving time and money on your repair, you are actually appreciating the value of your vehicle rather than depreciating it with paint and body fillers.
With PDR, you are essentially putting your vehicle into a time machine.
