How do you remove dents?
The dent is removed by working from behind it using specialist repair tools the damaged area is slowly lifted a tiny amount at a time until the original shape is restored, it's a painstaking and methodical process but the best way to remove a dent to perfection.
Are dings only removed from doors?

Nearly always no, we can even sometimes fabricate a tool to fit into a tight spot through the window appature but if we do have to strip the door then rest assured this is an extremely easy operation for a professional and there are no risks involved.
What is PDR?
Will my dents be completely gone?
On minor dents and in most cases yes. The deeper the dent is, the more difficult it is to repair. On larger dents most people are amazed at what we can repair and the results after the repair has been completed. Before we start any repair, we will explain to you in detail what your car will look after the repair is completed.
Will my dents come back?
Absolutely not! Once a dent has been removed using PDR, it never comes back. Most dents repaired conventionally develop a ring around the dent or sand scratch marks 3 - 6 months after the repair. This is never the case with PDR.
Can ALL dents be fixed?
No. The most important factors in determining if a dent can be repaired by PDR are depth and location. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully as long as they are not too deep or twisted.
