How much does paintless dent repair cost?
One of the most common questions I get regarding paintless dent repair is "how much does it cost?". There isn't a one size fits all answer to this question because there are many variables that come into play when pricing the repair of any dent. These factors include : Size, depth, location of the dent, whether or not it's on a body line, the type of metal the dented panel is made out of, whether or not the dent is obstructed by interior bracing or sound deadening, is it a crease dent, if there is laminated glass(if it's in a door), if glue pulling required, and if the removal and installation of lights, moldings or trim panels is required.
Most professional PDR companies utilize one of several pricing softwares to generate their estimates and are typically pretty competitive when it comes to pricing. The Paintless Dent Repair Price Estimate Calculator on this page is a close representation of the pricing that would be found within these estimating software systems.
Unfortunately there is a ton of outdated and or simply inaccurate information all over the internet when it comes to PDR pricing. PDR is a skill that takes years to master and not all technicians are at the same level of mastery when it comes to the art of paintless dent repair. So if you are simply looking for the cheapest price be prepared to receive a lackluster repair. If you are looking for the highest quality repair performed by a PDR Technician that not only has multiple certifications, but continues to improve upon their skills and educate themselves in all aspects of their craft, then you're in the right place.
It is important to note that when performed at a high level of skill PDR is a far superior repair to conventional autobody repair, the key is in the name "Paintless". Your vehicles factory finish is the most durable and valuable paint job you could ever have and maintaining the factory finish will not only look much better than any secondary paint job, but will also be much more valuable.
Paintless Dent Repair is not always cheaper than conventional autobody repair, but it is always better.
