What is PDR?
Paintless Dent Repair, also known as Paintless Dent Removal, is the fastest, most affordable and least intrusive process for dent repair. Automotive Dent Centre’s Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) process has made us one of Sydney’s leading PDR repairers.
Our technicians are trained experts in PDR and use the latest innovative technologies to repair dents without affecting a vehicle’s factory paint. Automotive Dent Centre’s Paintless Dent Repair process is designed to access a vehicles panels by using tools behind a vehicle’s “skin” and manipulating affected panels back to their original shape. PDR allows technicians to remove hail damage, dings, minor dents and creases without compromising a vehicle’s factory paint and returning the vehicle back to its original condition.
All insurance companies utilise Paintless Dent Repairers as a preferred method of repair for hail damaged vehicles. This technique means vehicles are repaired without the factory paint work being affected and results in panel repairs that are of factory finish.
Why choose choice of repairer?
Most insurance companies use hail assessment centres for the purpose of more affordable repairs. These repairers work under strict pricing guides and are in most cases not a local repairer. They are in fact from interstate and only operate in the area whilst there is large quantities of hail repairs. Insurance companies direct customers to these businesses because they are cheaper for the insurance company.
Why is this a problem for customers? When Paintless Dent Repairers are limited to what they can charge an insurance company, they then have to use more affordable repair techniques and technicians. This in turn means your car is not being repaired by the best technicians in the industry using the most advanced technology in the industry. Once the bulk of the hail storm damage has been repaired you are also at risk of the repairer having moved back to their original business location (i.e interstate), causing major problems for customers when warranty claims are made.
Automotive Dent Centre has chosen to remain as a customers ‘Choice of Repairer’ so that we are not limited to the quality of repairs we produce. We have strict procedures in place that manage quality assurance and all repairs completed by us are guaranteed by a written Lifetime Guarantee.
Don’t worry though, Automotive Dent Centre can still handle your insurance claim directly with your insurer and it will never cost you more than your insurance excess. Assessments are booked in at our repair facility and an insurance assessor is booked to assess your vehicle at our premises. Upon approval of our assessment, we proceed with repairs to your vehicle. This is in no way different to how repairs generally take place when a hail storm has not hit.
During catastrophic events such as hail storms, insurance companies will attempt to direct all customers to these inferior repairers, but there is no need to worry, because you do have a choice, as you are paying a premium for your insurance service remember!
Repairs to a hail damaged vehicle generally take 2 – 3 days to repair using Paintless Dent Removal techniques. If available Automotive Dent Centre can provide a loan car to customers that require one. Old conventional repair methods meant that repairs would take a number of weeks and you may be left with filler in your panels. This is a major turn off for buyers when purchasing a used car. We assure you that with our paintless dent repairs, no one, even yourself, will know your car ever had any damage at all.
