How Does Paintless Dent Repair Effectively Preserve Your Car’s Value?

Published On: January 20, 2023

If you’ve just gotten in a fender bender, it’s easy to worry about how the damage might impact your vehicle’s value. Fortunately, minor dents and dings don’t have to decrease the worth of your car. 

Shallow dents can often be repaired using paintless dent repair: a specialized technique where damaged panels are massaged back into their original shape. Paintless dent repair, or “PDR,” is a fantastic way to repair your exterior without impacting its resale value. Below are three significant ways PDR can preserve the worth of your vehicle.

Paintless Dent Repair Preserves the Original Paint 

No matter how closely your technician color-matches their paint, nothing compares to the original paint job.

Vehicles with factory paint are valued higher than cars that have been repainted. Not only does the original paint tend to look better, but it also points to a responsible driver – a repainted vehicle is more likely to have experienced major collisions and other damage. 

PDR Won’t Void Your Warranty 

You want to preserve your vehicle’s warranty for as long as possible. Having your exterior repainted at an autobody shop will almost always void your warranty. 

Because warranties only cover the original factory finish, they won’t apply to paint from anywhere else. Your vehicle’s manufacturer used paint they know will resist rust, the elements and chemical damage. Once you’ve had your car repainted, that information will be added to a CARFAX report, and your warranty will be voided.

Paintless dent repair keeps the factory finish intact, so there’s no need for a CARFAX report. This keeps your warranty valid for longer. 

Paintless Dent Repair Will Save You Time and Money

Repainting a vehicle is a time-consuming, costly process. Not only do you have to pay for the materials and labor, but you’ll likely need to rent out another vehicle while yours is being repaired. 

If paintless dent repair is a good option for your car’s damage, you’ll save a significant amount of money. PDR won’t require you to pay for paint, new panels or filler. It’ll also get you back on the road in just a few hours, so there’s no need to shell out for a loaner vehicle!
