With any new method of doing things, a few misunderstandings are bound to crop up among proponents and naysayers alike, and PDR is no exception—so we at Dent Erasers are here to set the record straight.
We'll explore three common paintless dent myths that just aren't true!
Myth: Paintless Dent Repair Can't be Used on Vehicles with ADAS Sensors
This isn’t true! Although not all paintless dent repair professionals are the same, Dent Erasers team of specialists can eliminate smaller dents from automobiles with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) sensors without causing any damage to these delicate systems.
Myth: Paintless Dent Repair is Only Good for Small Dents
This one definitely isn’t true! In fact, paintless dent repair can be used to fix a wide variety of dents and blemishes on cars- from small door dings to large creases. So long as the paint is intact, Dent Erasers can fix even the deepest dents with ease.
Myth: Paintless Dent Repair Costs Too Much Money and Takes Too Long to be Worth It
This isn’t true! We know that paintless dent repair is a new technique when compared to previous methods of car restoration, but it also has numerous benefits that make it worth the cost of equipment, training and labor.
Dent Erasers technicians repair your dents in a fraction of the time that traditional auto body shops or insurance agents take to do so (and without all the hassle). And we don’t need to replace parts like outside mirror assemblies or door panels.
Additionally, paintless dent repair is often significantly cheaper than traditional methods. Paintless Dent Repair generally costs about the same amount as a regular body shop or insurance estimate does - but when you consider that it only takes one visit to fix your dents instead of several trips and hundreds of dollars in rental car fees, you’ll come out ahead!
Myth: These Paintless Dent Repair Pros Are Charging Me for Something I Could Do Myself!
Nope, not true! Although paintless dent repair does seem like a relatively simple process when you see it done by professionals—and we’re sure that many people have tried to do their own repairs in the past with varying degrees of success. Just remember: those dents will come back again if they aren't handled properly and your car can be damaged beyond repair if you're not careful.
