PDR is becoming more popular in Melbourne because it’s affordable and effective in getting minor repairs performed at a body shop.
PDR was first used in the 1940’s to remove small dents including during the manufacturing process at Mercedes and BMW in Europe. However, the metal used back then was not very flexible and the method did not become popular. PDR made a comeback in the 1980’s but has only become popular in recent years.

Traditional dent repair involves the filling of the dents in the auto body with body filler or paint that is then matched to the exterior of the vehicle. While it can make your vehicle look as good as new, it doesn’t give a long-term solution for dents. It can also be expensive, time-consuming, and affects your vehicle’s resale value.
