How much does a typical repair cost?
Private Vehicle Owners
A car is made up multiple panels and each dent in each panel will need to be repaired individually, with the appropriate access method for each panel. A typical repair for a dent in a panel will cost a fraction of what you can expect to pay in a body shop. Send us a photo by email or text message and we’ll provide you with a free estimate.
Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Can you repair any dent?
The key point to note is that the dent must not have broken the surface of the paint.We specialise in repairing dents “paintless” which means we don’t apply any spray materials to the damaged area. The PDR (Paintless Dent Removal) system relies on the memory effect of metals and we manipulate the damaged area back to it’s original shape using specialised tools and skilled technicians.
What happens if you can't repair the damage?
We’ll let you know that we can’t perform the repair using our PDR system, offer you some advice, and you don’t pay a penny.
Can you make a major dent better, if not fully repaired?
Let’s say you had a knock that scratched the paintwork or damaged some of the fixings to the car. We are still able to removal many of the dents from panels, restoring your car to its former glory all bar the bits that a paintless system can’t repair for you. There’s a good example below where you can see the slight scratch in the top layer of the paintwork. We succeeded in eliminating the dent and the customer was left with a car that he was happy with, even though we were not able to repair the scratch in the paintwork.
How long does it take?
This depends on several factors including:
- Where the panel is on the car
- Where the dent is on the panel
- How big the dent is
But we typically perform repairs anywhere between a few minutes and an hour.
Can you repair dents in plastic bumpers?
Sorry, we focus on the repair of dents in vehicle panels of metal construction so are not able to perform repairs on bumpers.
