The qualities that define a true professional are knowledge of automotive construction, excellent hand eye coordination and most important, many years of practice and experience. There are lots of dent repair companies around but only a few have the advanced skills and techniques to repair your vehicle properly.
What to look for in a PDR technician.
Thanks for visiting me here on the web.I have been offering paintless dent repair in Columbia S.C. since 1992.Prior to this,I started out repairing cars with conventional paint and body work in a small independent body shop.This experience gave me valuable knowledge about automobiles that greatly complimented my skills as a PDR technician. I received my PDR training when the industry was still relatively unknown across most of the country. In the time since then, I have worked hard to develop the skills and techniques needed to repair many different types of damage on many different types of automobiles. I have serviced car dealerships, body shops,insurance companies and thousands of individuals. Through the years it has been my privilege to be acquainted with lots of nice people who have become friends as well as valued customers. I look forward to meeting you too and would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.
Paintless dent repair is a process in which small dents and dings can be removed from automobiles without using conventional repairs such as body filler or paint.This allows the customer to retain the original finish of their vehicle thereby saving time and cutting costs considerably. The most common uses for this technique are small door dents, minor creases and hail damage. A wide range of damage can be repaired using paintless dent repair as long as the paint surface is still intact.
Hello. I'm David McAuley. It's a pleasure to meet you!
PDR is essentially a refined process of "massaging" dented metal from behind the damaged panel using dozens to hundreds of "pushes" to slowly "reform" the metal back to its original shape. Unique tools are used to accomplish this including metal rods, body picks and hand held picks. The process also employs special lighting to allow the technician to see the placement of the tool being used and the contour of the dent being repaired. Glue and specially designed plastic tabs can also be used for repair in the event access to the back of the damaged panel is not practical.
