Estimation can be done in person or digital. We know that there are benefits to each estimation type, but both have there disadvantages. First is digital, this can be done by emailing us information on you, the vehicle, and the dent it self. Many find this way to receive a quote the most convenient. You can do it at your leisure and not have to take time away from work or your family. It also is extremely fast and no need to set an appointment. Nothing better than getting work done from the comfort of your own home. Though a digital estimate has the largest number of disadvantages. First even with great pictures and detailed information the quote could change once we are able to see the damage in person. Location of the dent and the type of vehicle can effect the ability to do a detailed estimate also. Some panels are not accessible, or the dent is on a body line that makes it more difficult to repair. So keep this in mind when doing a digital or email estimate. If your vehicle has hail damage please call, many hail dents you can’t see in normal light. This makes them almost impossible to quote correctly by pictures. Again this way is very convenient but not nearly as accurate.

In-Person Estimate


An in-person estimate is the best way to get a concrete, guaranteed estimate. Please schedule in-person estimates a minimum of two days in advance.

E-Mail Estimate


An emailed photo estimate is our most convenient estimate option. This allows us to determine if PDR best fits the demands of your vehicle’s damage and are able to give you a general estimate of what the repair will cost. All estimates must be verified in person. Here are the steps for submitting an estimate request via email:

  • 1. Please clean the damaged and the surrounding area.
  • 2. Place a sticky note or piece of colored tape directly under the dent.
  • 3. Stand 3-4 feet away from the damaged area.
  • 4. Please provide three photos of the damage from different angles: straight on, left, and right

Include the following information along with the photos in your email:

  • 1. Contact info (Name, phone number, area of town)
  • 2. Make, Model, and Year
  • 3. Whether the panel is made of aluminum or steel. Please check to determine if the panel To determine this, place a small magnet on the panel; if the magnet does not stick to the panel, it is constructed of aluminum (there is a 25% upcharge for aluminum panels).

*We reserve the right to adjust any estimate that is delivered through email upon closer in-person inspection. The option of ‘Email Photo Estimate’ is designed to provide an approximate estimate. We strive to keep the actual repair cost as close as possible to the initial emailed estimate.
