If your vehicle has hail damage, door dings and other small mishaps that may be minor, repair may not be as expensive as you think.

Step one in paintless dent repair is for our technicians access the back of the dent. This will allow the technician to determine the proper tools needed for dent removal. In many cases, you will have a dent that is on the crease of a fender, door, bumper or quarter panel, so it's important to ensure that the body can be restored without an issue. Checking the back of the dent also allows the technician a view of both sides of the dent to know where to apply the pressure accordingly while manipulating the dent. The location of applied pressure is important because this is how you correctly restore the dent back to its previous shape, aligning the body part to the correct factory specifications.
