  • About Me

    Paintless Dent Repair is a very new concept to the mainstream. When my father started repairing dents and bought a franchise in the mid-80's there was almost no demand. There were two problems. First, the repairs were far inferior to what a body shop could produce. Second, the industry had not yet arrived with tooling and advancements in lighting, which reduced the size of dents that could be repaired. Paintless Dent Removal created minor improvements on very specific areas to very small dings.

    Im 40 years old and hold a B.A. from Crichton College and Masters of Divinity from Liberty University. I was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, Airborne Infantry, and later went on to earn an Commission as a Field Artillery Officer (Class 005-08). Those achievements have very little to do with paintless dent repair and yet they have everything to do with it. At the end of the day, your hiring an artist who is a problem solver.

    Its also why I spent months learning code, so I could build you this website: an education may not help you make money in life, but it will teach you how to learn, and take care of the money that you do have.

  • MV99105 With The State Of Florida

    In the state of Florida, paintless dent repair certifications are not required-- for the time being.

    However, every dent technitian is required by law to carry a Motor Vehicle certificate with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

    It is not legal for anyone to work on a vehicle without this certificate in florida. Dent Repair USA's certificate number is MV99105.

  • If you owned a Dent Repair Company, why wouldnt you be certified?

    No matter what you do for a living, you must pass some level of achievement before you can do your job. That is not the case with paintless dent repair (PDR). Anyone can take a two week course, get some tools, and put up a website.

    The next thing you know, they are in your driveway, working on your car. They can tell you they have 20 years experience, but if you cant find reviews or a track record-- you might be in for a ride.

  • The Little Things Matter

    Little things that you cannot see are happening behind the scenes that begs many questions.

    What is the "um" of the paint? How hot is glue getting? Where to drill in relation bracing? Do you need a hole at all? Are they using rust preventatives? Are they using different tools for aluminum?

    There are literally hundreds of questions like these that every professional should be able to answer.

  • Dent Repair University: Its not just an art, its a science.

    Not only are we qualified Paintless Dent Repair Technicians, but we are currently writing a book on Paintless Dent Repair, that we believe will revolutionize how technicians are trained.

    Dent Repair University is not live to the public yet, but if you are wanting to learn about the PDR process then we will give you access to limited portions of the work.

  • We are the Standard

    Also you will find that many dent shops wont give you an estimate or ballpark without being in your driveway. Professional paintless dent repair technicians are in high demand from dealerships, auctions, car rental agencies, and retail customers alike.

    Standardized pricing is mandatory for all of these services, not only in the commercial realm, but also when dealing with the general public. If you are not getting a base price with a few photo's, there is a reason.

    More unscrupulous companies determine what they can charge you, not just based upon your dent, but based upon how much money they think you have. You deserve better and your going to get it with us.

    Our pricing is standardized, so regardless of where you live, and what kind of vehicle you have: we are bound to always give you the best price.

There are many so-called certification's. Anyone can say they are certified by some other technician or that they passed some level of achievement within their own organization: but its only as good as the paper its written on. There are only three recognized Certifications within Paintless Dent Repair, and we hold all of them. The most rigorous is the Vale Certification which is read only by computers and a stop watch. Ask your insurance agency why these certifications are important when choosing the right person to work on your vehicle.
