How Does Dent Repair Work?

When you bring in your vehicle or it is towed to one of our body shops, the first step is an assessment of the damage. Our technicians thoroughly inspect any dents and other damage, then provide you with a FREE upfront estimate.

Next, we identify the best option for repairing the dent. Several options may be available depending on the severity of the dent and where the damage is located.

We will also provide you with an expected timeline for the completion of repairs. This includes everything from the prep work to the detailing to quality checks. You will receive regular updates as we work so you know when you will be able to pick up your vehicle.

We make it our mission to repair dents quickly and effectively while keeping you apprised of our progress at all times.

Paintless Dent Repair

Paintless dent repair (or PDR) is a highly effective ​​option for repairing minor dents and dings on vehicle panels where the paint has not been damaged. The main benefit is that the dent can be repaired without affecting the vehicle’s paint job, saving you time and money.

For paintless dent repair to be an option, the paint must be intact. Situations where we might use PDR techniques include:

  • Small dents caused by hail, minor collisions, and parking lot mishaps
  • The dent is readily accessible by way of interior trim pieces, access panels, or existing openings (such as the door frame or trunk lid)
  • Flexible panel materials
    • PDR is more successful on metal panels that can be easily manipulated. It is less effective on panels made from inflexible materials like plastic or composite.

PDR is a faster and more cost-effective option than traditional bodywork methods, especially for minor dents. A professional assessment at your local Joe Hudson’s Collision Center can determine if paintless dent repair is an option based on the size, location, and severity of the dent.

Auto Body Work

If the paint has been damaged, more traditional methods of dent repair will need to be employed. Traditional body work for dents typically involves sanding, repairing, priming, painting, and polishing the affected area.

At Joe Hudson’s Collision Center, our technicians have the experience and training to repair large dents and perform complex repairs. We also use sophisticated paint match technology to ensure that the repaired area looks just like the rest of the vehicle.
