Integrity’s expert auto paintless dent removal South Dakota technicians utilize a proprietary process, custom dent removal tools, specialized techniques and decades of experience to gently remove and repair dents and dings caused by hail from your vehicle. The underside of the hail damaged panels, which are accessed through a variety of points on each vehicle, are massaged and flexed until the panels return to their original shape, rather than covering the dents and dings up with filler and paint. This process is known as “paintless dent removal” or “paintless dent repair”, and is commonly referred to as PDR. Even hail damaged vehicles that have dents with a multi-inch diameter can typically be repaired through PDR. With paintless dent removal, the paint decompresses along with the metal so that no paint damage occurs during the hail damage repair process.
All major insurance companies have adopted paintless dent removal or paintless dent repair as the standard and best practice for dent removal and repairing hail damaged vehicles, regardless of the number of dents and dings. Insurance companies are a major reason for the widespread popularity of paintless dent removal (PDR) since the method is more effective and also maintains the vehicle’s original factory paint warranty.
Paintless dent removal (also referred to as paintless dent repair or PDR) has been around since the 1940s. It first gained popularity in Europe as an innovative way to repair dents and dings on automobile production lines. It then gained popularity in the United States in the 1980s as a more effective, less expensive method for auto hail repair and removing dents and dings from hail damaged vehicles.
No. Paintless dent removal or PDR requires no painting and therefore will not disturb the factory paint job of your vehicle, which means that when the hail damage on your vehicle is fixed, your car still has the best finish it will ever have.
Not to worry. That’s actually normal! Most insurance companies will initially provide a very low evaluation for your auto hail repair, as they do not do a thorough inspection of the hail damage to your vehicle and have no incentive to do so. Your insurance company will cover 100% of the hail damage through your comprehensive auto policy, and we will negotiate the best claim on your behalf. Auto hail damage evaluation are subjective, and insurance companies have an incentive to provide low evaluation. Integrity is experienced in resolving and negotiating hail damage evaluation directly with your insurance company in order to ensure your hail damaged vehicle is repaired to its pre-loss condition with our paintless dent removal in Denver.
No problem. If you are still making payments on your vehicle with hail damage, when an auto hail claim is filed, your insurance company handling the auto hail repair claim will make the claim check payable in one of two ways: either to you and your lienholder, or to you and your auto hail repair facility for the PDR, or paintless dent repair process. Your lienholder will require a receipt showing that all the hail damage to your vehicle has been repaired before it will endorse your insurance check. Before you call your lienholder or send the insurance check to your lienholder, call Integrity and we will assist you with the process in order to avoid any delay in your auto hail repair. Most insurance companies will reissue the insurance check in the name of you and your hail repair body shop, which means that you do not have to go through the time and hassle of dealing with your lienholder, which most of our customers prefer during paintless dent removal in Whitewood, South Dakota.
