What Is Paintless Dent Repair?
Paintless dent repair removes dents & hail damage to your car truck or SUV with no major painting or body work. Our expertly trained & knowledgeable Charlotte paintless dent repair experts utilize special tools & soft pressure to gently massage the indented exterior surface of your vehicle back to its original condition. Not only does it take a fraction of the time of traditional dent repair it also is an environmentally friendly auto body repair technique that leaves no carbon footprint! With traditional dent repair, technicians fill in dents, hail damage & creases with paint & other fillers. They then must match the paint as closely as possible, before painting the filled areas. Not only does this take an extreme amount of time, it is very costly and also decreases the value of your vehicle. Unlike paintless dent removal, the traditional method is not a sustainable or long term solution because it doesn’t actually fix the dent, it just makes it look good on the surface.
