UNDERSTANDING HOW THIS SKILL CAME ABOUT
As far as it's known this skill was developed way back in the sixties by car manufactures such as Mercedes, out of the need to repair damaged vehicles with dings and dents made at the assembly line. PDR wasn't as popular back then as it is today! While there's still quite a lot of people unaware of this repair process, Paintless Dent Repair has taken a giant leap in the last few years.
ADVANTAGES OF HAVING YOUR VEHICLE REPAIRED BY THIS METHOD
The advantage and benefits to have your vehicle repaired by the PDR process is quality, as if the dent was never there. There is no grinding off the original paint finish, no application of fillers, like bondo, primers, and finally new fresh paint that could lead to colour mismatch etc. Another benefit is price, the cost of a small dent repaired by a body shop could reach $400, $500, or more? As an example the same dent repaired by the PDR method could cost $75 to $125. Time is another benefit, the repair could done in less than an hour, as opposed to a body shop taking 4 to 6 days with your vehicle.

By pork cheese - Kingston, ON
I went to Toronto to visit family. While I was there someone hit my car lightly. I searched for a garage, but everything was so bloody expensive. I stumbled upon SOS, he arrived within 20 to 30mins from where I was. He was very nice and informative. After looking at my dent, he gave me an estimate; which was a fair price in comparison to others. I said "go ahead with the repair ", and he started right away. Within 45 minutes he was done, and i drove home. No one realized I was hit!
Thank you so much for your kindness and expertise!
