The first step to any repair process is to evaluate the damage. Most dents, creases and dings can be repaired using PDR, as long as the paint surface has not been damaged. Once the damaged area has been evaluated and its deemed a candidate for Paintless Dent Repair, an AMC PDR technician will begin to prepare your vehicle for repair.
The majority of the time, the technician will need to access the back side of the dent, which often leads to the delicate removal of exterior body panels, tail lights, and at times, interior panels.
AMC’s PDR technicians use precision tools to skillfully manipulate the underside of the vehicle panel, returning the aluminum or metal back to its original factory shape, resulting in a smooth, damage free surface. Your factory paint remains unaffected and dents are erased. Permanently. The skill of the technician directly impacts the quality of the repair. At AMC, we take pride in performing this artistry, so only the highest quality Paintless Dent Repair is achieved.
Automobile owners are not the only ones who benefit from PDR. PDR has also become popular among auto dealerships who use the process to prepare used vehicles for resale, guaranteeing a higher value. Body shops utilize PDR as an add-on service by partnering with PDR providers such as AMC. PDR has actually been around for decades, it is thought to have its origins in the 1930’s. Automobile factories, such as Mercedes Benz, would have “dingmen”, who would utilize crude implements, such as, spoons and their bare hands to push out dents. PDR has advanced greatly since then, now many specialized tools have been created to help our technicians skillfully massage the panels back into shape.
