If your car has a dent or some dings, paintless dent removal is a great way to repair them whilst maintaining the finish of your paint. You don’t need to take your vehicle to a body shop for the job, PDR technicians can come right to you which saves you money and time. This technology is not only effective but versatile, making it an ideal choice for a multitude of vehicles. Find out which ones we service below:
It doesn’t matter whether yours is a wrapped car or not. Unless diamonds or tungsten make up its bodywork, the chances are it will probably get a dent at some point in its life.
Some cars get wrapped modestly. Others get caked in so much vinyl that they’d give Ru Paul a run for his money- the drag star is not picky about pronouns, incidentally.
The question is how easy is it to get a dent out of a vehicle dressed in multicoloured signage and shapes? Find out as we unwrap some surprising home truths about dent removal and wrapped cars.
Best Left Buried in Folklore
Let’s start with these old chestnuts from the DIY tipsters:
- Apply a plunger greased with oil or washing-up detergent and suck the sucker out!
- Use a rubber mallet or hammer and short plank and bash it out from the inside
- Place tinfoil over the dent, heat with a hairdryer & then rub in some dry ice cubes
- Apply some body filler, sand it down, polish, use a primer and repaint
- Use the hairdryer again to heat the dent up and then blow compressed air into it
Convinced? No, neither are we! You might get lucky once in a while but the real danger with any of these DIY suggestions is that they’ll end up doing more harm than good.
Unfortunately, that’s particularly true of wrapped vehicles. If you own a fleet of commercial vehicles, we understand how important the logos and designs are. Our job is to ensure they stay intact and always look their best.
So, don’t let your company’s new marketing strategy become a car crash. Leave the removal of dents in vinyl-wrapped cars to the professionals.
The Benefits of Our Paintless Dent Removal Service
To get dents out of vinyl-wrapped vehicles, you need a person who’s had extensive training and who’s got the right tools for the job. Our paintless dent removal technicians use specialist equipment that meticulously massages a wrapped car’s exterior back into shape.
They’ll methodically push dents out from the inside. They’ll also tap on a panel’s exterior with special tools similar to those a jeweller might use. The vinyl wrap will absorb any strikes and retain its appearance and strength.
Here are some of the key advantages of using PDR 2U
- Our dent heroes come to you for a more convenient and efficient service
- Only qualified professionals will carry out the job using expert gear
- Most jobs will get completed on the same day
- We offer a seamless service, 7 days a week
- We achieve a smooth finish every time with no vinyl creases or damaged paintwork
Using our paintless dent removal service is time-saving, great value and a whole lot more convenient than leaving your wrapped car with a body repair shop or panel beater.
Vinyl Wrap Helps Protect Paintwork From Dents
Because the process we use to get rid of dents is non-invasive, there’s no need for you to worry about the vinyl wrap of your vehicle getting damaged. The original paint and any protective covering are going to stay in place.
The process is fast and efficient. After our team has finished, there will be no repainting or “touching-up” needed, no endless sanding and no kind of invasive treatment.
Depending on the size, shape and location of the dent, we can usually get the vehicle looking like new again on the same day. It doesn’t matter if the car has dings, hail damage or creases, we’ll sort it.
Wrapping your car or commercial vehicle not only makes your vehicle unique and stand out, but it also has a hidden benefit. It gives the paint on your car an extra level of protection.
Wrapping Helps Us Remove Dents
The design of car wraps includes an element of protection for the paint on your vehicle. It helps mitigate minor damage and dents and protects against scratches and the environment. Although the wrapping will not stop you from getting dents, it will help to keep the paint intact so you won’t need to give the car a respray.
In the same sort of way, wrapping your car can make dent removal simpler because it helps stop the paint from getting damaged when we carry out the repairs. The plastic coating allows for bending and stretching so the signage or vehicle wrap is more likely to stay intact too.
If you’ve had a dent and are now kicking yourself for using vinyl wrap on your vehicle, think again. It could end up being a blessing in disguise.
A Few Dos and Don’ts
Although our customers tell us that what we do appears to give near-miraculous results, it’s important to also understand what we can’t do. At PDR 2U we’re unable to repair tears or rips in your car wrap, nor can we put right any movement there may have been in it.
We do, however, have trusted partners that we regularly work with and can recommend for these kinds of issues once we’ve worked our magic on the dings and dents.
Although for some repairs we may use a method that involves a glue pulling technique to remove the dent from the front of the panel, this won’t typically work on dent removal for vinyl-wrapped cars. We will always need access to the back of the panel when there’s vinyl involved in the dent.
If you’re at all in doubt, it’s best to check with us first. We will always do our very best to find a solution. The work is likely to involve getting behind a particular panel with specially designed tools to softly work the damaged metalwork back to its original shape. Again, the paint stays intact so there is no need to use unpleasant fillers or paint.

An Isuzu dealership signed a deal on a beautiful new DMAX prior to delivery. Unfortunately, when the dealership undertook a thorough inspection of the vehicle they noticed it had received a dent during transportation.
The damage was minimal but with an excited customer waiting to take possession of their pride and joy that day, taking swift action was imperative. PDR 2U are proud to say that this vehicle was repaired to its original condition in less than an hour.
Using Paintless Dent Removal techniques, the dent was repaired without removing the panel and the factory paint finish was retained. There was no evidence that the dent had ever existed and the technician from PDR 2U provided a guarantee that the dent will never reappear.
This example demonstrates the benefits of choosing Paintless Dent Removal over traditional panel beating techniques.
Using conventional dent repair techniques would have caused the customer significant delays of possibly over a week, the factory paint finish would have been compromised and the Isuzu dealership could have lost the deal through breach of delivery terms under the contract.
Customer satisfaction is our priority and for this reason, we offer a lifetime guarantee on all PDR 2U repairs.
