Large Dent Repair

Large Dent Repair

Dent Shop handles large dent repairs, including creases, the same way we handle smaller dents and hail damage. If you have had a minor accident, or your car has borne the brunt of a runaway shopping cart or other collision, our technicians can restore the affected area using Paintless Dent Repair techniques: We sculpt the body back into its original shape through a series of gentle, targeted taps with specialized tools.

We inspect the affected area carefully and give you an honest assessment of the probable outcome, depending on the size and nature of the dent and the condition of the factory finish where the damage has occurred. In most cases, the repair will be undetectable. If perfection isn’t possible, we will tell you what to expect before beginning work.

Large dents require more time and patience to avoid overstretching the metal and cracking the paint finish. Your technician will make multiple passes over the dent, beginning with a large soft tip to gently tap out the depression and changing the point tip as he refines the repair. Each tap is carefully scrutinized to ensure that it doesn’t affect your vehicle’s factory finish.

Creases are more difficult to undo but our technicians can expertly use a series of calibrated tools and precise actions to gently push and then tap down the damaged area, gradually unbending the crease while keeping the paint from cracking.

"Great results removing a few small dents from the passenger door of our new car. Very knowledgeable, they took their time and did several additional steps just to ensure the best possible results. The panel looks brand new again."

"Thank you Tim! I came in this morning to have a dent removed and 2 hours later I was on my way home. Tim is very professional and did an excellent job on my car. You would never know that a dent was there. I will definitely recommend Tim and Dent Shop."

Recently, as I was driving to work a rock hit the hood of my new car. Things do happen, but a little annoyed because it had less then 1000 miles. I decided to try a PDR shop to see if they could fix it so I did a lot of research. I sent out pictures... to 3 different shops at 9am. Tyler and his team at Dent Shop came back with a quote the fastest but decided to see what the other quotes were. I called the other shops but got no answer. I thought they were closed because of the pandemic so I gave Dent Shop a call. Tyler was very professional over the phone so I decided to try his shop. When I got there I was very impressed with Tyler and his team. I wasn’t sure how my car would turn out but WOW they did an amazing job. If your even thinking of trying a PDR, PLEASE try Tyler and his team at Dent shop first. By the way after getting my car fixed I finally got quotes from the other 2 shops at around 2pm and the other at almost 4pm. I hope this helps anyone who is thinking of trying this method of fixing dents. I am a very happy customer and will be recommending Dent Shop to everyone. Thanks again to Tyler and his more

Dent Shop is aggressively transforming what legitimate quality customer service is. The personal/professional relationship that is established from the second you request a quote, till the moment you pick up your car, (and don’t recognize it... because it looks so good), is an experience you will NOT get with 99.9% of any other business today, period. Dent Shop’s attention to detail, quality of work, masterful artistry, precision, and consistent communication throughout the entire time your car is in for service is guaranteed to impress you like no other business you have ever dealt with. They even took an unplanned trip directly to the dealership to get new parts last min in order to make sure the repair met the flawless standards that they uphold, gave me a loaner car, and had the challenging work done within 24hrs. All businesses should look to Dent Shop for the impressive example of a cutting-edge business who offers the highest non- compromising quality craftsmanship, a deep devotion to customer service, and skillfully demonstrating what it really takes to create a repeat customer.Look no further, you will not be more

Tim, Mark, and the team had me in and out in 6 hours, and did stellar work. They are professional, skilled in their craft, and have a great personal touch too. I was offered and given a loaner for the time my car was being repaired, and I... witnessed them discussing how to provide “over the top” customer service to a client when they thought no one was listening. Kudos to these folks!read more

Reading the reviews, they all seem to have the same perfect satisfaction with this shop and the results of the work they perform. This review is not an exception to that rule, but I'll try to add other details to my experience. The dent: I backed... up our brand new 2019 Honda Ridgeline with our brand new 2019 RV Trailer in tow. I know I should have practiced more prior, but I didn't. My punishment - an ugly dent at the back of the truck, thankfully none to the RV...(see before photos) The fix: Geico showed their real (ugly) side - they are great at selling low premiums, but suck when it comes to paying out a claim. Their offer was to repair the dent at a traditional body shop, via a process of bend, fill and re-paint the part, also using reconditioned parts for a 4 months old car to knock $40 off their bill. Thankfully, my neighbor had a very good experience with the Dent Shop, and passed the contact to me. I called them and Paul agreed to see me right away. He performed a thorough examination, and produced a professional detailed estimate report which he instantly emailed me, plus he walked us through the process (me present and my wife through video call), patiently answered all of our many questions and offered to help dealing with Geico on our behalf. At this point we had to choose between two options, with an extra $900 dollars out of pocket for the Dent Shop over the traditional paint and repair body shop offered by Geico.It took some deliberation on our side, but the professionalism and sincere non-pushy manner of Paul, and then Tim who took over the communication with us, were a stark difference to the non-caring and indecent way Geico was looking after their own interest while totally avoiding ours. The results: like every other review- we couldn't believe how well the dent was repaired. Try as we might we could not see the slightest trace of the original dent - our car is perfectly restored to its original condition - see after photos attached. They also fixed the car within 2 days versus the 6-10 working days of the Geico shop (two weeks probably). Tim, aware of the hit we took, also knocked off some of the charge to us after the work was done - with no pressure or force to do so other than his own volition!This is the kind of professional and personal ethics that are so rare nowadays and I hope the Dent Shop continues to grow and prosper to demonstrate that it still pays to be decent: you can be honest and succesful at the same time!read more

After a bad parking lot door ding I was referred to Tim at the Dent Shop. Tim was professional, friendly, not at all pushy, and he talked me through all of my possible options. He was able to get my car in the shop quickly and turned around the... job just as fast. My car looks brand new again and I couldn't be happier with the service. I highly recommend the Dent Shop!read more
