Everything you need to know about car dents & how to fix them!
Regardless of the reason or the damage level, car dents are always annoying. Those nasty marks on your car bodywork ruin the appearance of your vehicle and drastically reduce its value. What makes them even more hated is that no matter what you do, they always seem to appear from out of nowhere, and in the worst places.
There is not a single PDR customer that has come to Auto Rehab that hasn’t scratched, dented, creased, or did some bodywork damage in the first weeks of driving their brand new car. It is almost a law of nature. Thankfully, there is no need to panic or get depressed. Car dents can be fixed easily when attended in time and accurately.
Understanding car dents
Car dents, creases, scratches or any other mark or damage on your vehicle bodywork, can come from a wide range of sources, like fender benders or low-speed accidents, a door slamming against the side, falling branches, a loose skateboard, or from weather conditions such as hailstorms. Depending on the source, angle of the force applied, damage level, deepness, and many more aspects, professional PDR experts will know precisely the type of tool required, the amount of pressure, or if it is better to push or pull, in order to gently restore the bodywork to its previous condition.
Dent removal experts will also be able to know precisely which part of your car is required to be removed, or if they can reach the damage without removing any parts and still be able to remove the dent effectively. This step is especially essential when dents are located on the hood or roof.
No matter how small, superficial, or minor the dent seems, it is vital to fix it as soon as possible. It is common for dents to be deeper than what they seem. Also, the metal underneath could have been compromised, leading to more significant and expensive issues, such as rust. Therefore, as soon as you find a scratch or dent on your car, the best you can do is contact a PDR expert to remove it.
PDR or paintless dent removal is the most affordable, fastest, and most reliable dent removal technique in the industry. As its name suggests, it doesn’t require removing the original paint. PDR technicians can gently massage the dent off, restoring the car to its previous condition without affecting the car paint. So, cheer up! There is no need to worry or feel frustrated when scratching your car. It happens to everyone, and Auto Rehab will always be here to the rescue.
