Five Questions About Paintless Dent Repair Every Driver Wants to Know

Published On: February 17, 2023

If a fender bender has left your vehicle with minor damage, paintless dent repair is an excellent option to consider. This dent removal technique can potentially save you a significant amount of time and money – so how do you know if it’s right for your damage?

We’ve answered the five most commonly-asked questions about paintless dent repair to help you decide if PDR is your best bumper repair choice.

How Does Paintless Dent Removal Work?

Paintless dent repair, or PDR, is the specialized process of massaging dented panels back into place. Because it doesn’t require sanding, filling or painting, PDR is a quick and cost-effective option for many shallow dents and dings.

If a Dent Has a Scratch, is PDR Still an Option?

Most likely, yes. If a scrape or scratch is minor, it’s still worth repairing the dent with paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair can’t fix damaged paint – but most folks expect some minor imperfections when buying a used car. 

Will Paintless Dent Repair Be Reported to CARFAX?

Nope! Because paintless dent repair leaves your vehicle’s original finish intact, we’re not required to report the repair to CARFAX. This is excellent news for your vehicle’s resale value and one of the leading reasons to choose paintless dent repair over other options.

How Long Does the Process Take?

Most paintless dent repair services are completed in a mere two to three hours – and with Bumper Buddies, you won’t even have to bring your vehicle into the shop!
