Paintless dent repair was invented in 1960, by Oskar Flaig. During this time, Oskar was working with Mercedes at the International Motor Sports Show in New York, where he was responsible for the maintenance of the vehicles on display. Each night, Oskar would assess all of the cars for imperfections including scratches, chips and dents caused by visitors of the show, repairing them before floors opened the next morning. Oskar tried many techniques to help remove the dents in the display cars, but eventually found that massaging the dents out of the panels with the handle of a hammer provided the best results, often returning the panels to their original condition! Oskar has since been known as the father of Paintless Dent Repair and techniques used to this day are still largely influenced by those originally created in the 1960’s.

Whether it be at home, work or anywhere else you may decide, our fast and efficient mobile service can come to you! Most dents can even be repaired onsite within an hour. If your vehicle has hail damage, a complete hail damage repair with PDR 2U will only take a fraction of the time that a conventional panel beater would.
Paintless Dent Repair techniques use the ‘shape memory’ of your car’s panels. When cars are manufactured, their panels are stamped out into their final shape. When a panel is dented, this shape is distorted. Paintless Dent Repair uses techniques to manipulate the dented panel back into its original shape, leaving no trace of the original dent!
