Paintless Dent Removal
Posted 24 August 2003 - 05:56 PM
It left a shallow dent approximately 2 inches wide and 1 inch high, joining the other two shallow dents caused by shopping carts or the car doors of inconsiderate jerks.
Anyway, the paint wasn't broken/cracked so I'm thinking of getting it fixed at a local detailing shop that does "paintless dent removal" that apparently uses some sort of suction device to pull the dent out with damaging the paint!?
Has anyone had this done to their car? Does it work or is it a scam? A few weeks ago I noticed a service van for one such service that appears to be part of a franchise.
Any feedback/input would be appreciated.

there is a company called dentwizard who seems to have perfected it, and do it for most of the dealers in this area. they are also available to the public. you can find more info on their website at www.dentwizard.com . they have a variety of tools to remove dents from most places on a car. it is quite impressive to watch...

the guys who use suction can't do what dent wizard does they worked magic on two of my vehicles.

What did it cost (you) to get the damage to your cars repaired? I'm looking for an approximate $$ range so I can get a rough idea of what it will cost me.

as mentioned before, they have a ton of specalized tools to gently push the dents out. when working on doors, they usually go in through the window (with it rolled down), and can reach most of the door. i've never seen them work on quarter panels, but i imagine they work through the wheel well.

Anyway, I'll call them for an appointment to get an estimate.
It can't hurt and I'd love to get the exterior of my car "like new."
I'll post the results -- maybe a photo, too.
Thanks to all who responded.
