What is Paintless Dent Removal (PDR)?
PDR is a highly-skilled process in which dents and minor creases are removed from your vehicle's exterior bodywork, without a costly and time consuming need for traditional body shop repairs. A skilled Excel Dents Technician can access the damaged area and with custom designed tools, literally massage the metal back into its original shape. The process is paintless, avoiding any chance of colour mismatch. The original factory finish remains intact and this will help retain the value of your vehicle.

Why is PDR better than traditional body shop repairs?
By using the latest PDR techniques we can restore your vehicle to a showroom condition, saving you the expense and time usually required by conventional body shop methods. No filler, no fuss, no hassle!

How long will the process take?
We strive to provide you with a high-quality service and achieve the best results. Dent repair time can take from as little as 30 minutes for a small cosmetic ding to a few hours to fix a larger dent, creases, bump or knock.

What areas do you cover?
Our worskshop is based in Aylesbury but our mobile Technicians cover:-  Buckinghamshire (Bucks), Bedfordshire (Beds), Hertfordshire (Herts) and Oxfordshire (Oxon).

Are there any vehicles you cannot work on?
Our service can be used on all types of cars and vans with either a steel or aluminium body.

How popular is PDR?
PDR is becoming more widely used, because the size of dents that can be removed has increased over the last few years. The widespread use of high-strength metal and resilient paint finishes has enabled PDR to become a viable alternative to traditional body repair techniques.

Advantages of PDR
A number of advantages for PDR include:
No repainting or car body filler required. 
Less expensive than traditional car body repairs. 
No risk of overspray on other vehicle areas.
No risk of incorrect colour matching. 
Vehicle retains original paintwork.
A vehicle with original paint retains a higher value than a repainted vehicle. Even if it is just a door or wing it is always preferable to maintain the original paint on the vehicle for as long as possible.

How is it done?
Removing car dents and creases is a highly-skilled and difficult process, which requires years of ongoing training and a wealth of experience, of which Excel Dents Technicians have both. Our master technicians use specialised tools to slowly massage the damaged area back to its original form.
