The Drawbacks of In-House Paintless Dent Repair

by | May 18, 2017 | Dent tips

When it comes to in-house paintless dent repair, there are some things you should know. Although it is advertised as an easy thing to do, it’s not. If you don’t possess the right tools or training, you won’t be able to remove dents and dings from your vehicle without damaging it more.

The Insurance Company Recommends Paintless Dent Repair

There is a reason why the insurance company recommends Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) services. It’s advantageous for a number of reasons. For example, it’s one of the safest, fastest, and most reliable forms of hail damage repair around.

Why You Shouldn’t Try to Repair Your Vehicle Yourself

Although it might make sense to cut costs by attempting to do the repair yourself, we advise you not to. There are a number of reasons why this type of service is better left to an expert. It’s even worse not to take any type of action because when a car has a sizeable dent on it, its body has a tendency to rust which causes all types of damage to the vehicle.

Some of the drawbacks of in-house paintless dent repair are:

  • Costly tools and training. Don’t get stuck buying a bunch of tools you don’t know how to use. DIY dent removal kits require skill to use. You need to learn how to remove the dent or ding from the vehicle safely. That takes time and is an expense that you just should avoid. If done incorrectly, you could cause hundreds if not thousands of dollars of additional damage to your car, truck, van or SUV. This is completely avoidable by getting a few estimates and finding a company that will work with you to get the repair done right, quickly, and affordably.
  • Further damage to the vehicle. You or a friend could easily damage the vehicle even more if you don’t know what you’re doing. The insurance company may then decide not to pay the claim because you didn’t have the repair done by a professional. If you don’t want to wind up paying twice as much as you would have paid out of pocket by having a repair shop get the dent or ding out, don’t try to do it yourself at home. You’ll gain peace of mind knowing that someone else is handling the repair for you. You’ll be able to go about your daily routine with ease because you won’t be left thinking about how to balance a busy schedule with a much needed auto body repair.
  • Voiding out manufacturer’s warranties. Depending on the specifics of your guarantee, you may void out the warranty by attempting to do repair work by yourself. Even if you’re somewhat skilled at doing what you do, it’s important for you to remember that these types of repairs are better left to experts. They possess the knowledge, skills, and equipment to do the job right. They can do it quickly and affordably, too. The Auto Dent Specialists help restore your manufacturer’s warranty so that you’re able to receive all the benefits of it without restriction.

As you can see, there are a number of problems with attempting to repair your vehicle’s body by yourself. Even if you have a friend that has successfully done PDR at home, it’s best to take your vehicle to a repair shop and speak to a representative there about what needs to be done. The Auto Dent Specialists work with you to come up with a solution that is beneficial and affordable.
