Common Dent Removal Questions
Can I perform DIY dent repair myself?
While a dent might seem like a simple issue to repair, it requires knowledge in many areas before you can achieve the best results. This includes the appropriate techniques, resources, and training. Because of this, we recommend that you leave this job to the professionals. In this way, the dent is removed, and the original structure of your vehicle is restored.
Can every dent be removed?
Although it is possible to restore the structure of your vehicle, not every single dent can be eliminated. In fact, some areas of your car such as the panel edges tend to be denser than other areas. As a result, performing dent repair on these sections is often a daunting prospect and can be difficult as well.
In addition to this, a dent can cause a crack or chip in the structure of car’s paint. Therefore, trying to remove it can potentially increase the level of damage. For this reason, the best solution might be not to pull the dent but to just perform minor touchups.
Will paintless dent removal compromise the paint on my car?
No. Once the evaluation shows that your dent can be fixed, there will no compromise on the structure of your paint. In fact, most contemporary factory paints tend to be powerfully flexible which makes them durable and long-lasting. Therefore, this process is less likely to compromise the structure of the car’s paint job.
I have come across tutorials that demonstrate how to use plungers to eliminate dents. Can I repair my dent using this process?
It’s important to note that a plunger has a large surface area, which can make it inefficient for pulling out the dent. In fact, using this tool may also lead to increased car structure damage. Most contemporary vehicles come with compact steel, and any poor procedures can compromise the structure. For this reason, we have a large selection of multi-sized pullers to suit your dent removal needs.
How long will it take to repair my dent?
Broadly speaking, the dent repair duration is determined by various factors. These include the structure of your vehicle, the amount of damage, and the repair techniques we need to use. Though we can never exactly guess the time needed for the repair process, it generally never exceeds 3 hours. Smaller dents might take an average of thirty minutes to repair.
Is paintless dent removal good for repairing hail damage?
