What is Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)
Most people do not understand the Paintless Dent Removal process. PDR is the process of removing dents, dings, creases and hail damage from vehicles without the inconvenience and expense of traditional panel shop repair methods. It is a common misconception that hail dents are sucked out using some form of suction cup. Contrary to this, our skilled team of technicians actually use a series of specialised hand tools and techniques to gently massage the damage from the inside of the panel. This restores the panel to its original shape leaving the manufacturer's original paint work intact.
Light Tunnel Technology
The PHMS Light Inspection Tunnel has been specially designed by PHMS to be light weight, mobile and utilise low voltage LED lighting to ensure the utmost safety for our customers within our Hail Repair Management Facilities. It ensures all damage is captured at the Assessment and only the highest quality of repairs are performed.
There is a lot of misinformation and myths out there about the Paintless Dent Repair method (PDR). The Motor Repair Industry have studied PDR methods for a number of years. The results have been so positive that today all major Insurance Companies recommend the use of PDR in hail repairs as well as accident damaged motor vehicles. PDR can be traced back to the early 1920's where it is believed BMW initially used the technique in its German Manufacturing Factories. Today Motor Vehicle Manufacturers use PDR to remove small dents during the production process, the Ford motor Company is reported to have been using this procedure on its assembly lines as far back as the 1950's. Watch our video on common PDR myths and get the truth behind the process.
