Why Brandon Residents are Choosing PDR Over Body Shops

Benefits of Body Shops

Body shops play an essential role in the lifespan of a car. Over the years you will need countless fixes, both serious and minor, that will have you visiting Brandon body repair shops whether you like to or not. The fact of the matter is body shops are necessary to the well being of your vehicle.

Nowadays, the way body shops repair dents is considered ‘traditional’. Technicians will pound the dents out using techniques like bonding, filling, and sanding. Ultimately, with body shops, your car is going to need some serious repainting. That’s why many insurance companies won’t refer you to one right away. Body shops are notoriously pricey and won’t do any good for your resale value. So many drivers that can’t afford their deductible leave their vehicle damaged until it rusts.

Benefits of PDR

Paintless dent repair is a simple process that requires years of practice and training. Contradictory? Yes. But no other repair process will save you the time and money that PDR will. To begin, you may be tempted to try your hand at a few ‘off-the-shelf’ dent repair products. Don’t. Aside from being cheap knockoffs, if you attempt to repair the car yourself you could void the manufacturers warranty on your vehicle. PDR requires a combination of professional tools and techniques to truly be effective, but the results are absolutely worth it. You’ll have a 100% dent free car without the need for repainting or any of the costly steps involved in body repair!

How to Choose the Right One

Picking between PDR and a Brandon body repair shop isn’t as simple as a coin toss. You have a lot to consider regarding what you need fixed, the price, and what quality you are looking for. But you need to ask yourself one question first. Can PDR fix my dent? Paintless dent repair can fix:

  • Soft dents
  • Sharp dents
  • Creases
  • Giant dents
  • Multi-point dents

All with very few exceptions. Just keep an eye out for cracked paint (which can be found in some sharp dents) and dings near the edges of your car. The metal there is extremely tough making it difficult to work with. Under most circumstances you will want to choose PDR first. To schedule your first visit call us today at 605-595-4061!
