Frequently asked Questions
What is Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?
The origins of PDR are said to go back to the assembly lines of the Mercedes and BMW plants in Germany dating back over 70 years! In more recent times the manufacture of professional tools and equipment has brought PDR to the forefront of vehicle repair. PDR is a skilled process that enables us to remove non-structural dents, dings and other body damage. With no spraying involved this environmentally friendly technique restores your vehicle back to its original condition without the use of paint and body fillers traditionally used by other methods.
How does the PDR process work?
Dent Devils use specialised steel rods and leavers behind the dent to release pressure inside the damaged area allowing the panel to revert to its original shape. Depending on the repair the dent is accessed by removing trim pieces, through window openings or by removing inner panels. It is a skilled process and our experienced technicians can achieve showroom results. PDR does not conceal the damage; it completely removes it preserving the original paint finish on your vehicle.
What are the benefits of PDR?
PDR is a relatively quick, affordable alternative to costly and time-consuming panel shop repairs. The technology and skills of our experienced Dent Devils technicians are second to none in the repair industry. This environmentally friendly technique requires no filling, priming or painting. Best of all, your vehicle's original factory paint finish is left completely in tack – no colour matching required!. Dent Devils are a mobile service - we come to you at a convenient pre-booked time.

What size dents can be repaired?
Our experienced technicians can repair most non-collision dents from the size of a ten cent piece to the size of a soccer ball. The determining factor is the dents depth and diameter. A large shallow dent is more repairable than a small extremely sharp dent which will also reflect in the time and cost of repair.
What types of dents cannot be repaired using PDR?
Dent Devils can repair most non-collision dents and creases where the paintwork has not cracked. Some exceptions are sharp deep dents where the metal has been stretched too far to recover. Dents that are located near the very edge or seam of a panel making it difficult to access the dent for repair. See three examples below.
Dents located on the seam
