How PDR Works

What is PDR?

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a restoration technique used to remove dents from your vehicle without affecting its original paint. Unlike a traditional body shop where replacement part orders, fillers, sanding, painting, touch-ups, and lots of wait time are required to fix your vehicle, our team of highly skilled technicians restores your vehicle in a fraction of the time.

How Does PDR Work?

The PDR Process Involves Two Main Methods:

Paintless dent removal is like a gentle massage for your vehicle, fixing pesky dents without disrupting its factory finish or resorting to major replacements that take time and usually a lot of money to correct.

Dent Pushing

Using highly specialized tools, the Next Gen technician team accesses the back side of the metal panels and gently massages each dent until it disappears. With precision toolwork, the vehicle’s surface is restored to its original shape and contour.

Dent Pulling

When dents are in hard-to-reach places where a special tool can’t quite reach, the Next Gen technician team uses another approach. This second approach involves using specially designed glue and tabs to pull the dent up from the top (that’s why this method gets the name of pulling instead of pushing). Technicians apply the glue to the dent, attach a tab, and then pull the dent out without causing any harm to your vehicle’s surface or paint. We like the dent-pulling method for inaccessible spaces instead of drilling holes in your vehicle (a common industry practice used at other shops).

Deductible Assistance Program

In your insurance policy, a deductible is the portion that the insurance considers your responsibility to cover for your vehicle’s damages. For example, if your car sustains $5,000 worth of damage and your deductible is $500, the insurance will provide you with a reimbursement of $4,500. Typically, the customer would need to pay the chosen repair shop the remaining $500. However, under special circumstances, we may assist in covering or entirely waiving this fee. To find out if you qualify, book a time to visit our shop or call us today to learn more! We give you our Hassle-Free Guarantee.
