The traffic is unpredictable in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Seemingly, the rush hour never ends, and everyone is in a constant hurry to get from point A to point B.

Luckily for you, Sioux Falls dent repair in South Dakota can take care of all your problems. 

Our certified technicians have been repairing dent repair, ding repair, and windshield repair for the past several years. Their experience has allowed them to give every car the car shine it deserves. But with that being said – sometimes, our hands are tied. 

Even though it is our priority to fix dents via the paintless dent repair method – it isn’t possible all the time. 

What Can Be Repaired By PDR?

Sioux Falls Dent Repair would love to repair every dent of your car with PDR, but sadly that’s not possible. The dent repair process depends on the size of the dent and the damage it has done to your car. If your car has one of these 3 dents, paintless dent repair can be easily done:

  • Round Dents

A round dent is usually classified as hail damage. It can also be caused by basketball, golf ball, or baseball. If your car has a round dent – you don’t have to worry. PDR can be performed very easily on this dent and your car will be looking fresh in no time. 

  • Dings

A ding can be caused by a shopping cart or by another car in a congested parking lot. These dents are sharp and small. To avoid these dents, we recommend our customers to always park in a spot which has a lesser amount of vehicles. Congested spots make you a lot more prone to dents.

  • Creases

A crease used to be a complex dent that was not repairable via PDR for a long time. However, advances in PDR technology have made it easy to repair these dents with PDR now, too. Depending on the size of the dent, you might even have your car back in a day!

But why should anyone choose PDR anyway?

The Benefits of PDR

Protects the Factory Finish

Every car that is shipped from the factory to a showroom has a factory finish over it. We usually refer to this as the shine we see on the car. An autobody repair uses fillers and body paints over your vehicle that destroy the factory finish. Not only is your car repainted, but you also lose that beautiful shine. A PDR on the other hand does not even touch this finish at the time of the repair. Even after the process is complete – your car still looks fresh.

Prolongs the Life of Your Car

Another purpose of the factory finish on the paint is to protect your car from chips and cracks. As long as the factory finish stays on your car, your car is safe from problems like cracking paint and chips.
