How much does it cost to fix a dent?
The answer to this question will mainly depend on how severe the dent is. The more significant and more profound the dent, the more work that needs doing, including the paintwork, and more equipment will be necessary to get the job done.
For minor dents, including paintless dent repair, you are looking at just under £100, and for the larger dents, including paint requirements, you are looking at up to £500. For our price list or a free quote, please get in touch with us. We offer our professional services at highly affordable prices.
How do Body Shops fix dents?
There are many different types of dent services, for example, paintless dent removal (PDR), dents that need paintwork or bodywork, more prominent marks on doors or bonnets and more minor dents. Body shops and repair centres remove dents in your vehicle differently, depending on which treatment you need.
However, we use the latest and most professional equipment, so our services are effective. If you need paint on the vehicle due to dent damage, we can use techniques such as sanding and fillers. We must use less rough methods to ensure we don't chip the paint for paintless dent removal.
Can any dent be repaired?
No, we cannot repair all dents. Some dents can be so severe, especially if they have been in a bad accident. Such a thing would depend on what the mark has affected in the aftermath of the accident. It could have damaged other parts of the car. If this is the case, it could even be cheaper to buy a new car than to have it wholly repaired, have new parts fitted and have the car re-painted.
How are dents removed from Cars?
Dents can be removed from cars using many different methods, including:
Paintless Dent Removal
Firstly, we use metal levers to try and release the dent as much as we can. Rougher methods, such as filling or sanding, will in turn impact the paintwork. We can only use this process for minor dents and ones that don't require any re-painting.
Auto Body Painting
If your car is involved in an accident, then the dents will usually be a lot worse and require more treatment. This method consists of sanding down the surface of the dent, the application of primer to prevent corrosion and then the paintwork.
Are Dents Covered by Insurance?
It will largely depend on your insurance company and the type of insurance you have. Some types of insurance will only cover dents if another driver caused them, and some may only cover the mark if you were the cause of the accident. Some insurance companies will cover paintless dent removal under specific circumstances. You will need to get in touch with your insurance company if you are unsure and discuss them.
