- What is PDR? PDR is a repair method that enables the repair of dents in vehicle panels of all metal types without the need to repaint the completed repair area. This is where the damage enables our highly skilled PDR technicians to push or pull the dents out of your vehicle. The result is the metal panel returns to its original form i.e. with no dents!
- What is Conventional Repair and Paintwork? Where a panel has been severely damaged and PDR alone will not repair the panel, we rely on traditional panel beating methods including repairing, replacing and painting the affected panel.
We are always interested in establishing good working relaitonships with skilled technicians and businesses. Fill in this form and we will be in touch.
