Having a dent in your vehicle can be frustrating. That’s why more car owners choose paintless dent repair (PDR), a modern method of repairing dents in vehicles without the need for traditional repair methods or any repainting.

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding the paintless dent removal service:

What Factors Impact the Repair?

Factors such as size, location, and type of dent all affect the cost and time it takes to complete a successful PDR repair. For more complex dents, however, additional repairs may be required for the dent to be removed completely.

Since it’s completely dependent on your situation, feel free to give us a call to assess the overall damage and determine the best course of action catered to you.

Will The Paint On The Car Be Damaged?

There’s no need to worry—paintless dent removal is designed specifically to leave your car’s paint intact. This is one of the main advantages of using PDR over traditional repair methods—the body of your car will stay in pristine shape.

Can My Tesla Get PDR?

Yes, many Tesla models can benefit from paintless dent removal. However, paintless dent removal is more difficult on a Tesla so you want to ensure the technician you choose has experience with the Tesla brand to ensure a successful repair. But at Valley Collision, we specialize in repairing all kinds of vehicles, so you’ll be in good hands.

Will The Dents Come Back?

PDR is an effective way to repair dents that provides lasting results. The results are permanent, which means there is no risk of that pesky dent making a return. For the repair to be successful, a technician must have access to all sides of the dent to pull it out correctly. Otherwise, the dent may eventually come back.

We’re here to consult the best course of action with you and will always be transparent about the results of our work.

Will My Insurance Cover The Cost Of The Dent Repair?

What your insurance will cover greatly depends on what insurance you have. Some companies cover it, while others don’t. The best way to find out is to contact your provider and let them know you’re interested in having the repair done. They should be able to provide details on what they will and won’t cover so you’re in the know.

Should I Try To Repair The Dent Myself?

Unless you are an experienced technician, trying to repair a dent yourself can be risky and may cause more damage to your vehicle. We don’t recommend taking PDR on as a DIY project as it requires skill and expertise to complete the repair effectively. Otherwise, you risk the dent coming back and having to start all over again.
