If your car has been knocked and suffered from a minor dent as a result, there are many options available to rectify the damage. While some options, like home kits, are more cost effective, the results may not be as long lasting as professional dent repair work. Since dent damage can affect the appearance and resale value of your car, it is a service worth investing in.
At ChipsAway Ireland, we use certain techniques to ensure your dent is repaired properly and professionally. To understand how professional dent repair works in comparison to home kits, we have answered some of the most common questions asked around professional dent repair.
What is the ChipsAway Dent Repair Process?
Once you have filled out the enquiry form and submitted any relevant images of the damage, we will be in contact to arrange a free no obligation estimate, which will allow our technicians to evaluate the damage before deciding which route is best. In some instances, we may be able to conduct classic dent removal, while other vehicles may require paintless dent removal. No matter the process, we will ensure to consult you on price and timings before continuing the work.
What are the Different Types of Dent Repair?
Like most bodywork repairs, there are different techniques available depending on the size and intensity of the damage. As mentioned, classic dent repair is a procedure often available and consists of our technicians using ChipsAway Ireland’s SMART repair technology. This process means we use colour-matching technology to isolate and only repair the damaged area before blending it back into the surrounding panel.
If we believe paintless dent removal is a more viable solution – if it is a small or shallow dent – this cost effective technique eliminates the need for filling and painting the dent. In instances where the paint hasn’t broken, our specialists are able to ‘massage’ the dent out of the affected area to restore the panel back to its original condition.
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) Before & After
Where is the Work Carried Out?
Our repair specialists are able to carry out the dent repair work remotely to suit you, at work or home across Dublin. Likewise, we offer this service at both of our fully equipped bodyshops in North Dublin and South Dublin.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The length of the procedure will vary depending on the extent of the damage, however with the SMART (Small to Medium Area Repair Technology) repair technology available at ChipsAway Ireland we can complete a dent repair in just a few hours, at a fraction of the cost of traditional bodyshops.
Again, PDR is the quickest dent repair method and can be completed within a few hours, all for a lower cost than conventional bodyshop full panel repair.
How Much Will The Repair Cost?
As some dents are repairable with minimal repairs needed to the paint, whereas other dents with vast paint damage take longer to repair, the price is understandably affected. As a result, we price dent repairs on a job-by-job basis, ensuring that all of our customers receive the best service at a cost reflective of the damage their vehicle has inflicted.
