You can only keep your new car looking new for so long. Eventually something will happen to both the inside and the outside to remind you that you are no longer the owner of a shiny new vehicle. It may be that someone spills a drink or some food on your upholstery on the inside or another car door opening beside yours in a parking lot gives you your first dent on the outside.
Your first reaction to one of these things happening may be a feeling of dread taking over you. This precious new piece of machinery you purchased is no longer beautiful and new.
Your next reaction may be one of preservation. You may start mulling through ways that you can restore your car to its formerly pristine condition. The inside isn't so bad. Most spills and stains will come out with cleaners you can purchase in the store as long as you get right on it. But the dents are another story. Or so you may think...
Believe it or not, getting a dent or ding out of your car can be very affordable. That's because new advances in auto repair have taken major steps away from the days where the only way to remove a dent from your car was to cut or hammer it out, use a bonding agent to reshape it and repaint the whole vehicle.
One option is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) instead. Paintless dent repair is a method of dent removal done with much less time and work involved in the process. Essentially, special tools are used to remold the metal that has been dented back into its original shape. Instead of the days it can take a body shop to complete the repairs when they have to cut a piece out of your car, this process often takes less than an hour to complete. Many small dings and dents can be popped back out in 20-30 minutes.
The ease and speed at which these repairs are done also means they are going to cost less than the work-intensive old version of repairs. Skipping the step of painting saves a lot of time and money, but how is the quality of the work? Decide which method of repair to use based on the age and value of your vehicle and how important a durable finish is to you.
