Minor dents can be removed utilizing Paintless dent removal tools while particular care is taken to guarantee that your vehicle's paint does not suffer any damage. Paintless dent removal may usually be done on the same day, although this will depend on the placement, depth, and number of dents on your car. For minor dings that haven't destroyed the paint, PDR may be the best solution. These dings may have been produced by trolleys, parking lot dings, or hail or stones.

Many customers fear that they will be overcharged for repairs and be without a vehicle for a long amount of time if they take their vehicle to an auto body shop. A professional auto body shop can help you with your car's hail damage repair, which is something you shouldn't try to do on your own most of the time.
Whenever a dent occurs on a vehicle and hail damage results in multiple dents the metal surface is stretched. You can use a rapid heating and cooling process to correct the stretch, eliminate the damage, and make the car's surface look normal again. It is possible to reheat each dent with such a heat gun, then cool it down with a very cold component, such as dry-ice treatment. The concept is that the convective cooling from the ice will force the metal to shrink, thereby pushing the dent out of the car, making the metal more malleable from the heat. However, warming the vehicle's surface might cause damage to the paint and make the situation even more difficult.
