So no matter the make or model, Beckley Imports is able to work with you and your dented vehicle.

What Is Paintless Dent Repair

One of the biggest issues with correcting a dent is matching paint. Every factory provides a paint code for the color used on your vehicle. However, every factory also uses a slightly different shade and color combination. This means a red from GM is not going to match a red for Porsche. This can make matching paint colors tricky. If your vehicle did not sustain any damage to the paint though, it may be possible to avoid matching paint and instead focus on pulling out the dent.

Pulling Out the Dent

Dent removal can vary in terms of how the dent is pulled out. If you drive a new Ford F-150 that is built out of heavy-duty aluminum there is a strong chance you may need to have the entire panel removed. While there are benefits to aluminum, including a drop off in weight, one of the biggest problems is aluminum does not return to its original shape. Other times, the size of the dent and location may play a role in its ability to be pulled out or if it needs a filler. Typically though, the dent can be pulled back into position.

With a suction cup system, the cup is placed on the dent and pulled out. As long as the vehicle did not sustain any kind of structural breakage within the paneling, it should pop right back into its original position, without showing any signs of damage. If you’ve never thought about paintless dent repair, the process can save you time and money, especially when performed by an expert, like the team at Beckley Imports.
