Paintless dent removal is an innovative technique that aims to remove dents wherever possible restoring the original paint on your vehicle. Most insurance companies now require a PDR quotation quote and we work with insurance companies regardless to take the stress and confusion off you.
There are two main types of techniques – pushing dents from behind the panel or glue pulling from the outside. Any vehicle less than 10 years old are at a low risk of paint issues due to the industry standards and warranty of the factory paint.
Once vehicles are older than 10 years, the possibility of paint being cracked particularly due to glue pulling increases and often you hear “I might crack the paint”. This then requires what we call ‘push to pain’ (PTP) on the quotation indicating to the insurance company that if the paint is cracked then it requires to be painted. Of course if the hail has cracked the paint, a PTP annotation is automatically applied to the quotation.
Of course in the private quote situation, a decision has to be made whether the consumer wishes to proceed for example if the vehicle was going to painted regardless or you the consumer wishes to “risk it”. The PDR technician may refuse to do the repair because of the risk of cracking based on the paint condition. Please kindly accept their refusal based on experience and to avoid further issues.
