Paintless Dent Repair is more than a process. It is an art form.
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is really an art form of metal shaping and shrinking. Metro Collision Center has some of today’s finest craftsmen in the technique of metal shaping. PDR removes many types of minor dent damage from hail, rocks or door dings. This is done without the use of conventional auto body methods like sanding, body filler or painting.
Why should you choose Paintless Dent Removal over conventional methods when applicable?
- Most repairs can be completed within an hour (Conventional repairs are usually a minimum of three days)
- It's much cheaper! Generally this form of repair is half as much as conventional repair
- It saves your vehicle's original factory finish, because this form of repair does not involve any sanding, filler or painting
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a process that reforms metal back to its original condition without affecting the paint finish. The myth about dry ice and plungers removing dents and dings from cars just isn’t true.
Not all dents can be removed through Paintless Dent Removal, but it sure would be nice if yours could. Visit Metro Collision Center to obtain an estimate of the repair and its degree of successful removal.

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a great way to remove small dents from your vehicle without having any paint work done. Those annoying door dings caused by other car doors, shopping carts and other objects that hit the sides of you car can be fixed. Hail damage, falling acorns, errant baseballs and other falling objects from the sky that dent your car can also be fixed.
There are several myths about the PDR process. Some of these Myths include using heat or dry ice to "pop" the dent out or using suction cups to pull the dent out. The PDR process is done by using many different tools to work the dent back out. **Dents are removed and generally you cannot notice where the original dent was. This process requires a lot of training, practice, patience and skill, as well as a keen eye. There are certain parameters that govern the effectiveness of this process. The best results come from dents generally not larger than 2-3 inches across and no creases or sharp indentations. The dent can not be on a body line and the paint cannot already be cracked. Please feel free to come by our shop or call and speak to one of our tech's if you have any questions.
