I sold my car because it was dent free - by getting the dents repaired it sold easily
Trying to sell a vehicle and you notice a whole bunch of those little dents and dings? Dents from other cars hitting your doors in the parking lots, or little rocks hitting your vehicle as you're driving? It doesn't matter how you got them, but what does matter is what it makes your car look like while you're trying to sell it.
You can get this new service called PDR or paintless dent repair. It's really awesome. It doesn't cost near as much as taking your vehicle into the repair shop, and the time in which the dents and dings are done is tremendously faster, like 10 to 20 minutes per ding or dent if you have an experienced technician. If not it may take a bit longer, but it really shouldn't take that much time.
There are ways that these technicians get at the dents and dings from the inside of the vehicle, and then what they do is basically massage the dent or ding out of the car. It's a very cool process, and if you learn how to do it you will make a bunch of money helping people sell their vehicles by making them look sharp and without dings.
So if you want to get your vehicle sold and you want to get the most money out of it that you can, you should check into PDR and see if they can help your vehicle look almost brand new, if not brand new. You would be sure to get more money from a car that has no dents and dings than one that is covered by them. A car that is sharp looking and has no dents will raise a higher price than the one down the block that only has a few dents.
So with this option of paintless dent repair, you can get possibly a few hundred dollars or pounds more on your vehicle than what you had planned to get with all those dings from the cars parking too close by you in a parking lot.
Get a hold of either a repair shop that does this type of work, or a mobile technician. See how many vehicles they have done and see if you can compare the prices with a regular body shop. You will be surprised at how much money you will save and the amount of time that you will have to leave your vehicle at the shop to have the work done, or to have the PDR done.
Like stated above, if you get a technician who knows what they are doing, each ding or dent will only take 10 to 20 minutes. If you go to a shop and put the vehicle in to be fixed, you're sure to have to leave it over night at least. It might even be longer depending on how many cars they have going in front of yours. So check out PDR and get extra money from your car!
