We are here to meet all your PDR needs here in Texarkana. Let’s answer a few questions you may have:
What is PDR?
PDR, or Paintless Dent Removal, is a procedure in which a technician removes dents, dings, and creases from a body panel by gently massaging the damaged area back into its original shape. This process requires specialized tools and training and should be left to certified individuals.
Is PDR covered by my insurance?
Absolutely! In fact, this method is often the preferred repair route for dents, dings, and creases in most cases.
What are some of the benefits of PDR?
There are many benefits to PDR, but by far, the greatest benefits are its low cost and quick repair turnaround. Because PDR is not as invasive as traditional repairs, it’s cheaper to do it; most repairs will cost you less than your insurance deductible. Likewise, it’s much faster to do, with most repairs taking a couple of hours to complete.
Does PDR damage the paint on my car?
NO! PDR is the only method of repairing dents on your car without damaging the factory paint on your vehicle.
Can you perform PDR on aluminum body panels?
Absolutely! Although PDR on aluminum requires more skill and further specialized tools, a good PDR technician will perform repairs on aluminum panels without any problem.
How do I find a good quality PDR technician in my area?
One way is to look for a NAPDRT member technician. NAPDRT is a not-for-profit organization that is at the forefront of setting nationally accepted standards for our industry. NAPDRT technicians agree to a set of standards and are bound by a CSI (Consumer Satisfaction Index ). In addition, many NAPDRT members are Vale National Certified. This is the only nationally recognized independent certification available to PDR technicians.
Can all dents be fixed?
No. The most important factors in determining whether or not PDR can repair a dent are depth and location. Dents the size of a dinner plate or larger can be fixed successfully as long as they are not too deep. On the other hand, some dents that are as small as a dime but very deep cannot be fixed using PDR because the metal is too stretched. Cracked paint can also be an indication that a dent is too deep. The best case is not to assume yes or no, and swing by for an estimate.
The most common dents fixed are the size of a golf ball and under. Most (about 95%) minor dents can be repaired. About 5% of minor dents can’t be fixed due to depth or location. Areas such as some quarter panel opening lips, some forward areas of heavily braced hoods, or the very edges of some panels are examples of bad locations.

You’ve run to the grocery store to run an errand and come back to a horror scene… a runaway cart that a careless person has haphazardly discarded has smashed into your brand new car and left a massive dent on your door. What are you to do?
There are two primary methods to repairing dents on a vehicle. You have traditional body repair, which includes the use of paint filler, and you have PDR, which requires the skills of a trained technician with specialized tools to pop the dent back into place.
So, which is better? Let’s look at both methods of repair in detail.
Traditional repair uses paint filler, a.k.a Bondo, to fill in dents, creases, and other damage on your vehicle to ‘restore’ the shape of the body panel. The vehicle is then sanded, painted, and buffed before being put back together.
Sure, your car looks as good as new, but is it?
The problems with paint fillers are numerous. Bondo will crack over time if not mixed correctly, leaving the repair looking worse than the original damage. Not only that, but the paint will fade differently over Bondo than it will over the rest of the vehicle, making the repair more noticeable after some time.
PDR, or Paintless Dent Repair, is a more conservative approach to fixing dents. Using specialized tools like dent rods and blending hammers, a certified technician will gently massage a dent back into its original shape, often in a matter of minutes, restoring the look of your car. No fillers or painting here!
Wait a minute, is it really that easy?
Well, yes! PDR is the simplest, easiest, most cost-effective way to get rid of a dent. In fact, it’s the preferred method by most insurance companies when it comes to repairing hail-damaged or dented vehicles. In the case of our shopping cart mishap, the customer can come out paying less than their insurance deductible if they choose the PDR route over the traditional repair!
In every possible case, it’s always beneficial to see if PDR is an option. Its ability to retain the integrity of the body panels and paint is a massive advantage to the vehicle owner over invasive body repair. It’s more cost-effective, and it retains the value of the vehicle better over time.
In this case, the answer is clear, chose PDR!

Paintless Dent Removal or PDR is the art of manipulating metal back into its shape before the damage happened. We use metal tools, hammers, and specialized pulling tools to get the metal back to the original factory shape. Texarkana Dent Repair is your one-stop-shop for PDR.
Common accidents, like door dings, tools falling on a car, dents caused by deer hitting the car, the garage door closing on a roof, all of these things can be fixed with paintless dent removal if there are a couple of factors.
Paint. The paint is still intact. Some tiny paint scratches and cracks can be worked with, but most of the time, the paint needs to be intact, so when we do pull or push on the dent, the paint does not come off and is continued to be damaged. Please swing by or send us some photos to get our professional opinion if this is a questionable situation with your vehicle.
Access. We can repair MOST areas of vehicles, but some areas can not be repaired. Usually, we can get behind that metal and push/massage the dent out from the back to get it back to factory form.
PDR is superior for multiple reasons.
Keeping factory paint. When you use paintless dent removal instead of a body shop, you can keep your factory paint. While there are great traditional body shops, no one can recreate the paint and color that come off the factory floor. Paint can devalue your vehicle and make it less desirable for resale.
No Carfax Report. We all look at a CARFAX when we buy a used car, and PDR is not usually on the report if you don’t use your insurance. We are not mandated reporters of accidents.
No Filler Bondo. We can fix your car with no fillers, or Bondo, which can ultimately fail and requires weeks in a body shop and new paint.
Quick turn around– Instead of weeks in a traditional body shop, we can usually get your car repaired in a day or two instead of weeks. This saves you money on filing a claim with your insurance, renting a car, and inconveniencing when you need to get your car worked on. Sometimes you can sit and wait while we repair your vehicle in our shop, or at your home or work! Talk about making your life easy, and we are all about it.
