Paintless Dent Removal & Repair

The Cost-Effective Solution for Minor Dents or Dings

Paintless Dent Repair, also known as PDR, is the best course of action when repairing minor dents or dings. It is a cost-effective solution to minor, unsightly damage caused by shopping carts, hail storms or other unexpected bumps in the road, as it does not require the expenses involved in sanding, body fillers or keeping the original finish of your car.

Complex Auto's highly trained technicians will be able to evaluate the size and location of dents (or other types of damage) and assess whether this technique is appropriate to repair your vehicle. This is typically a two-to-three-day repair.

Paintless Dent Assessment

Auto Collision Repair always starts with a thorough assessment of damages. If the extent and location of your vehicle’s damage allow it, then paintless dent repair is a quick and affordable solution to fixing your car. It’s a great option for minor dings and dents.

Paintless Dent Repair

If the assessment determines PDR is a feasible solution for your vehicle, then our experienced technicians will either push out the dents from the metal panel, or use specially designed tabs to pull out the dents from the outside. In all cases though, the metal is manipulated in precise locations, using a PDR reading instrument called a paintless dent repair light.

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) is a quick, non-invasive alternative for removing minor dents and unsightly dings from your vehicle caused by hail, runaway shopping carts, edges of car doors, falling ladders, bike handles, and other unexplainable events. Dings, creases, larger dents, and even plastic bumpers can easily be repaired by our trained and highly skilled Paintless Dent Repair technicians. Complex Auto will save you aggravation, expense, and the time traditional auto body and collision repair shops demand. Our paintless dent removal and repair is done by accessing the backside of the metal to massage the dent out to the original shape. This process may require the tedious yet necessary steps of uninstalling or removing parts of the vehicle to achieve the best results for our customers.

Body shop repairs usually require bondo, fillers, and painting to be done. However, this will only hide your damage, not completely fix the damage to your vehicle. Auto dent removal using our specialized PDR process is far safer, and does not require the chemicals and products that a body shop would need. On top of that, typical repair times at a body shop could take days or even weeks and longer.

This process uses special tools to remove dents or hail damage without needing expensive painting. The most common practical use for PDR is repairing hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations.

At Complex Auto we can completely repair almost any minor damage to your motor vehicle without costly panel repair and paint processes. From as little as 30 minutes or a few hours to complete depending on the size and location of the dent. Hail-damaged vehicles can take a day to several days, depending on the number of dings being repaired. The cost is generally a third of the price of traditional body shop repairs.

Paintless dent repair is a cheaper and more affordable way of removing those dents on your motor vehicle. You will add value to your vehicle and restore it to its original condition.


PDR is a great alternative to traditional bodywork when appropriate. It can save you hundreds of dollars and days if not weeks of time, all without compromising the value or integrity of your vehicle.
