Despite its growing popularity, many car owners are still not aware of paintless dent repair.

That's why we have rounded up a few facts you may not know about paintless dent repair.

1 - It is More Cost-Effective Than Traditional Dent Repairs

Repairing dents can get expensive. However, PDR is a very affordable option which is one of the reasons why it is becoming so popular. One of the most significant expenses when repairing may be a much more cost-effective option. 

2 - It is Not Just for Minor Dings & Dents

There is a common misconception that PDR is only for tiny dents. This might stem from the fact that it is a popular choice for addressing hail damage. However, what most people don't know, it is effective on damage up to even the size of a coconut. 

Did You Know? If you have a liability-only insurance policy, you will not be covered by hail or storm damage to your vehicle. Only a comprehensive policy will offer this protection. (Source: The Balance) 

3 - It is Often Faster Than Traditional Dent Repair

One of the key benefits of paintless dent repair is that it usually is much faster than other, more traditional dent repair techniques. In today's fast-paced society, we know that being without your vehicle for an extended period can be a major inconvenience. However, with PDR it is possible to offer a faster turnaround with many repairs taking just a few days. 

4 - The Dents Will Not Come Back

Paintless dent repair is a permanent solution. Since PDR involves reshaping the metal, many people mistakenly believe that over time the dent could pop back in. This is not the case. Once the damaged panel has been repaired, it will retain the same strength that it had before the dent occurred. Also, don't forget that Gerber Autobody & Glass offers a lifetime guarantee on all repairs for as long as you own the vehicle.
