Paintless Dent Repair Certified
Choosing the right PDR service provider
Why certification? There is alot at stake when dealing with paintless dent repairs. An poorly attempted dent repair will lead to a trip to a bodyshop and could be a difference of hundreds to thousands of your dollars.
So how do you choose the right company for you? Personally I choose based on certifications first just like a dentist or doctor. Secondly, I check reviews like anyone else.
I understand these certifications don't necessarily mean much to someone out of the industry, but it does mean your potential service provider is vetted by someone.
You've Tried Your Best but You Got Dented
So What's Next? What's this PDR stuff?
You try your best and park away from all the other cars; you pay the price and walk further so your car is away from other vehicles and carts. But it can still happen, you get dented! So the only options you know about is to try to live with the dent or have the dent repaired conventionally: stud-weld-pulled, filled, and REPAINTED at a conventional bodyshop.
I have to tell you there is another way: PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR!
You will need to find a highly reputable paintless dent repair technician to reshape the dent perfectly to the original shape and not damage the paint. You will have to be careful because it requires high skill and there are unqualified service providers out there. It takes about 800 hrs of practice AFTER specialized, good training just to repair a quarter size dent perfectly.
Once poor PDR is inflicted on the sheetmetal, it may not even be able to be reversed. You may have to have the conventional autobody method to repair it. This means you only have one good chance at professional PDR - so please choose a professional.
And let's be honest and confirm that there are DIY kits for dent repair found on Amazon.
Please do not try it yourself with a DIY PDR kit.
There's only one Michael Jordan of dent removal and he doesn't live near Vancouver. It takes practice even for the gifted if you want the repair to look like it never happened, let alone damage to the point it will need repaint. You only get one chance at OEM paint!

As a professional I have to make many choices, decisions and corrections during a repair to produce a result without damaging your once-in-a-lifetime factory paint. I constantly leverage on my past knowledge and trainings and experimenting with new PDR technology. From my metallurgical engineering background, autobody, and advanced PDR training, I can make the best decisions for your vehicle and situation.

Please check with me first, I will produce THE closest thing to returning your vehicle to its original condition before the incident. I pretty much turn back time on your damage, since nothing is subtracted or added to the surface during my repairs.
Why Vancouver Dent Pro?
The very skilled trade of PDR is not regulated like other red seal skilled trades in Canada. So it is up to the individual technicians to stay ontop and invest in themselves for the best current practices : legal, safety, technical.
This can be a problem, as there are practictioners of PDR that have only learned from online video and youtube. There is no barrier for such persons to setup shop and start offering PDR services. It is up to the buyer of PDR services to qualify potential dent repair service providers.
PDR is a very high skill trade and it is easy to make irreversable mistakes and break OEM procedure without knowledge. For example, drilling an access hole in order to make access for tools to reach the backside of the dent. Drilling for access is not approved by any automotive OEM manufacturer as it will weaken the structure and possibly void the functionality of some sensors needed for airbag deployment. These are serious safety issues that need to be learned and studied.
I personally re-invest in continual education by travelling North America attending workshops and trade shows annually just like doctors and other experts to learn from industry leaders.

- ARC certified PDR Master Technician (un-biased double blind test to vet technicians that demonstrate mastery in the trade)
